The app is in development. There have been a couple release date announcements, even employees like comcastrick were surprised that it didn't launch 12/15. This to me means that there was a bug that needed to be fixed, or a ROKU certification delay. It could happen again and be delayed some more obviously. It was always expected to be released as a Public Beta this fall, meaning before December 22 (winter). Being public beta, I expect that it will still contain quirks and bugs. If you want to watch your tv channels right now, without renting something, hook a laptop or computer up to your tv. Xfinity.com has had Cloud DVR/ON DEMAND/LIVE TV for a while. Update: Well, I'm nervous now because I haven't heard anything lately (another comcast employee said it would be released this year) and I've read that sometimes it takes ROKU a minute to Certify Public channels. If any Comcast higher ups are reading this, please share it as a Private channel to Beta test during certification if it is a certification delay. Disclaimer: My opinions and assumptions are my own and do not represent Xfinity in any way.

Good call on that bud, fall goes until December 21. I guess we have our release date again! Does anyone want to bet against me? I think it will be ready by then.
Without giving my life story but the fact is I was in an accident a few years back that was no fault of my own. Now I am for the most part bedfast. I have the Comcast box only in my living room and have no hookup in my bedroom. Also the kids watch the TV in the living room. Being on a fixed income I need to watch my budget and can't afford certain things like new wiring and the extra 10 a month for another box. I only have a few fuzzy stations from my antenna and Netflix. I was so excited back in April when I heard about the app. I was given a Roku for my birthday but am still waiting. Like the rest of you I have been trying to be patient since April. Why tell people it will come out in the fall? I guess they can still meet that but the clock is ticking. The thing that worries me is they said the Samsung app would be released this year also but I was told on a different thread that it won't be released till 2017...
