Re: Can I use my verizon Internet instead of xfinity internet for the cable apps

Do I need to have xfinity internet to use the apps on the cable.. or do I need to buy a cable modem or something in order to access the apps included with the Xfinity Cable??

I'm not going to buy xfinity internet when I already have Verizon FiOS internet here. It makes no sense to pay for 2 internet services

There’s no getting around it, there’s no access to the apps without Comcast internet.

The X1 box requries Comcast Internet to use the apps. You are free to use another device (Roku, Amazon Fire, etc...) with your Verizon internet instead.
