Xfinity Stream on Android Things devices: homehub, lenovo smart display

Xfinity Stream is a handy tool. I need to disconnect and move my tv because i'm painting my living room and wanted to watch TV on my Google Home Hub or Lenovo Smart Display.  I can cast TV from HULU to these devices and heard YouTubeTV can do this too, but i'm still trying to figure out how Xfinity Stream can do it?  Other than watching it on my computer's web browser.  Any ideas?  @cdaraghy on twitter is best to reach me.

If you have a PC you may be able to cast a tab from the chrome browser viewing https://www.xfinity.com/stream/.  But I'm not sure why that would be better than viewing on the PC screen.   I don't think your device will run the android xfinitity stream app directly like a tablet or phone would - and you can't cast from the apps on those devices.
