Watching movies on Xfinity

The Chrome browser will end support for the proprietary Flash video format in December 2020, and Adobe will stop updating it. in favor of HTML5. Since my device is a Chromebook, I would no longer be able to watch movies. on Xfinity stream. Will xfinity change from streaming movies in the Flash format to HTML5.

Comcast says that there will be a replacement for the flash verification of HD secured path video encryption by 12/31/2020. Note that HTML 5 has no video player nor encryption built in. We won't know until the changes are complete.
