Xfinity TV Partner App for LG Smart TVs- when available in 2018?

I saw the press release between Comcast and LG in late 2017 about their partnership to develop a TV Partner App for LG (and Sony) Smart TVs, which will allow Comcast customers to stream directly to compatible LG Smart TVs without a Comcast cable box attached.  Can anyone tell me when this Comcast TV Partner App for streaming will be available in 2018?

 

Here is the press release between Comcast and LG:

It's been a couple months with no reply here. I am wondering the same thing. Is there any news of when this is available? I thought it would be early 2018. Thanks!

I've also been waiting quite a while for this app to show up.  It was said to be released early this year, but we're already more than half way thru 2018 without even a public beta.

2018 is almost over... is LG building the app or is Xfinity building the app? Or was this just a press release with no substance behind it?

if, and until it is announced, Comcast will not provide dates. you can check the TV's app store for availability.

I contacted customer service today. They said that in 2017 plans for xfinity streaming apps were put in place for Samsung, Sony and LG. Samsung was able to complete the negotiations and prepare the software first (Sep 6, 2018). Negotiations/software for Sony and LG apps are "in process"
