It's surely intentional. Not only did they lie and are now dragging their feet since the FCC has backed off, but they will also be restricting access to in home network, unlike promised during announcement by Comcast CEO. That's most likely the hold up. They do NOT want their IPTV app to lead to account sharing and they want every last dollar they can get from set top boxes. On another note, when Comcast is late to an appointment aren't we given credit? Partial credit towards a few of the invested roku's only seems fair. Also, let not kid ourselves, we all know some kid in India could already have this app finished.

Like many others upon the announcement I too invested in multiple Roku devices, returned my extra dta devices, and patiently awaited the release of the app. Considering it now appears the app isn't going to be released on time, and I can't count the number of lies Comcast has already given me on both of my hands, I became impatient and ended up finding another solution for all my Roku devices. I cancelled services and ordered cheap Internet from another local provider + PlayStation vue. I will only save 40$ for the first month due to early termination fees, but after that I'll be saving roughly 100$ a month and actually enjoying my viewing experience by knowing that I'm saving so much rather than feeling obligated to watch tv due to extremely high xfinity bills. I've already done the same for my father and my friend is also awaiting installation of his new internet before cancelling himself. That's 3 customers gone. I'm sure I'm not alone, and I wasn't the only one tired of paying nearly 200$ a month for decent services, so yea, times are changing and it looks like you guys are simply falling behind. As a 5 year customer I highly recommend this new method to anyone who only needs basic cable (no not the useless channels) and Internet.
