you cannot watch live tv on any device, you can only watch on demand type programming.

Comcast does not provide live feeds of its cable TV channels over the net. To do that you would need to add a Slingbox or similar device.

mdh3333,

 

BruceW & rog286713 are correct; you currently cannot watch live TV on Xfinitytv.com

 

Our product team is constantly working on adding to features to Xfinitytv.com to make the best experience possible. Thanks for your suggestion; we'll consider your idea for a future release.

 

Thanks,

    Comcast tech in Arlington, VA, assures me that as of June, 2012, live Commcast streaming is available on my laptop, but finding a link, if that is so, is going to take some time.

 

     But certain cable shows are put live on the internet. I have looked for and found only one feed - Chris Matthews at hardball.msnbc.com. Repeat, this was live webcast. Bet there are thousands of others, maybe local news as well.
