xfinity on Samsung Smart TV

When will the xfinity app be available on Samsung Smart Tvs? Not the xfinity Ultra HD Sampler. The below link states Comcast pulled the app. Please let us know when the full version of the app will be available on Samsung Smart TVs, or please drop the screen sharing restrictions from mobile devices. Thank you

Not since 2015 has the xfinity app been availableon Samsung smart TVs.

to connect a TV you will need a device that connects to an 'outlet' on your account. Currently that is a TiVo, Xfinity set top box, or a Roku (currently in free Beta). the app you mention is for portable devices. you may currently use a desk/laptop and a Chromecast dongle with Chrome browser to cast to the TV basically treating the TV like a computer monitor, or you can hookup the PC via HDMI cable (again using the TV as a external monitor).

I've been watching NETFLIX cause it's easier. I can't understand how in 2018 there isn't an app to Smart TV. Xfinity has way better options of TV show, movies and so on than NETFLIX (everything is old on NETFLIX).
Turn on my laptop on the TV, connect the cable.... ZZZZZZ. So boring, it's simpler push my remote button and go to NETFLIX.
Xfinity, you must fix it right now. Most of the NETFLIX success is about being on all smarts TVS.
