@I'd rather have @ComcastDan & @ComcastJessie spend their time addressing technical issues than what the pricing "might" be when the beta run is over. C'mon man.
This specific forum has been a "catch all" when it comes to information regarding the Xfinity app on Roku. I am a customer, not a Comcast employee, shouldn't we all be on the same team? So, I am not sure why my question is any less important than those asking questions about getting the App to work on unsupported devices?
Some of the technical issues that people are having could be solved by reading the updated post on the first page. However, they are still being asked and answered.
From what I can gather, from last 5 pages or so of posts, the thought of Comcast implementing some type of fee after the beta period ends is a relevant question and concern. One that if addressed, may have a positive impact on people providing feedback on the app (no fee = potentially more people trying the app and providing feedback).
Again, the article I am quoting is coming from a reputable tech website that was puplished a full day after the beta app launched (not the Variety article). Could they be wrong? Absolutely! I would love for them to be wrong, because a $7.49 fee to use the app is a non-starter for me. However, I tend think that reporting is fairly accurate.
I mean C'mon man, we are talking about a company that imposes fees whenever possible.
No one said that your question isn't valid, but if you look at the past 5 pages you can see that your question has been answered. If not, let me answer it. Comcast is not charging ANY fees during the beta period. This is day 3 of the beta test. Comcast has NOT comfirmed how much / if there will be a charge for Roku usage until AFTER the beta period. Now, I have a Sharp Roku TV 5000 series with updated firmeware I bought just last week and the Xfinity APP absolutly falls short of expectations. I'd rather Comcast concentrate on making the app work just as good on my Roku TV as it does on my IOS device during this beta period. If they don't, then whatever charge they would like to impose AFTER the beta test, will not be justified. IMO.

The beta on my Sharp TV (5318X) is definitely not ready for prime time. I can access some of my X1 cloud recordings but get a DRM error for others. I can stream some movies on demand but none of them stream in HD quality. Everytime I try to stream live TV, it hangs then crashes and restarts the TV set. Mind you, I have it connected wirelessly on an 802.11ac router using the 5GHZ frequency with a -67dBm signal strength.
