1. Every day we’re working to make Xfinity TV programming available to our customers in more ways including connected TVs, on websites, on tablets, and on other devices like Roku.  We will continue to work with our partners to deliver even more choices to our customers in more places.

 

2. Yes, you can stream a video on your PC or Mac while you or someone else is watching a different program on your TV.

 

Thanks,

Re: streaming

So is there any progress on making a Xfinity TV Go app for Roku or any headway with allowing streaming access to channels that people currently pay for on the Roku?  Like HBO-GO?  There are many channels that allow you to log-in to their app using your provider but hardly any of them have comcast as a viable login option... It would almost be worth it to just buy Time warner cable to access their app evenif we are locked out of their service area due to comcast owning the rights.  Will comcast start offering access or an equivalent to the TWC app on Roku if/when the merger/aquistion actually goes through?  Comcst needs to get on the band wagon soon or they will lose out to more innovative companies once they start offering the flexibilty and service customers are asking for.  Why not offer apps and allow alacart subscriptions to speicifc channels so people can build their own service packages with as few or as many channels as they want?  We can watch almost anything we want on-line but demand for on0line streaming of live channels through devices like Roku is increasing and people are becoming increasingly annoyed and upset at Comcast/Xfinity's lack of progressive and innovative use of streaming devices and excessive prices while not allowing other providers to compete in their service areas.
