Lack of Streaming Services

If Xfinity is going to position itself to be "direct competitors" with so many streaming services that it will not suppot, then how do you suppose you will survive in the future communications/entertainment war.

Microsoft read this with with their eyes closed 15 years ago.  Streaming is the future, and without it, Xfinity is dead.

I want to be able to stream CBS Online, Hulu, DC Online, Disney+, Crackle/Sony, and whatever else comes out!  If Xfinity can't, then I want the next best guy that can.

Please let us know who that "next best guy is". I dont think I know of any one television service provider that offers everything you want. If you do, can you please share who that is?

If you buy a new 'smart' TV, odds are pretty good that any popular service is going to have a native app for the TV even if it isn't on the xfinity box.   I would have expected Apple to be the last holdout in cross platform access, but  now their app is on some TVs, rokus and Amazon fire devices.
