Will Xfinity install cable wiring in my house to a new location?

I have two fireplaces and two living rooms. Those are the only availbile spots that a TV is optimal. The one fireplace already has coax cable hookups and a power outlet. ( When house was purchased).

 

I am currently looking to a electrician to install a power outlet for the fireplace, but there is nothing but drywall there now. 

Will Xfinity run the cable to that other fireplace or will that be my responsiblity to run it to that location.

It’ll probably be your responsibility but you can see if an Xi5 wireless box is available and avoid running cable, just power

adding.... most electricians have a wall fish charge so adding a coax cable (ask here for type of cable) with a straight run to your splitter could be added to the run for AC power. then call comcast to make the run an 'outlet' and hook the runs up to a spltter or zero gain amp (comcast supplies the amp/splitter).
