Stream App on Fire TV and Apple TV

The two streaming platforms that I use - Amazon Fire TV and Apple TV - still have no joy with Xfinity.  We are getting close to the end of 2018, when I thought these were to be delivered.  Anyone seen even a beta release?

Hello , the information that (Rustyben) provided is correct. Currently only certain devices have the Xfinity Stream app. We anticipate adding more equipment manufacturers and devices during 2018. For eligible device models, see the activation information for Roku devices and Samsung devices.

Re: Stream App on Fire TV and Apple TV

Hopefully this happens soon. I just bought a Toshiba Smart TV with the Fire OS 6, not knowing that the Xfinity streaming app is not compatible with it. The minimum requirements listed on the Xfinity site include Fire, so this is a huge disappointment. The ability to stream Xfinity is the whole reason I bought the TV since it's too difficult to install cable in the room I'll be using it. I don't want to return the TV, but might have to.
