“We want to provide customers with the best television experience on every device, when they want it and where they want it,” said John Crowley, Comcast’s regional senior vice president. “The cloud-based infrastructure of the X1 platform allows us to deliver on that promise and give customers a more personalized viewing experience.”

To deliver these new streaming and download features to Xfinity TV customers, Comcast has launched a new Xfinity TV app for iOS and Android tablets and smartphones and a dedicated portal for viewing on computers. To live stream their TV lineups or download DVR recordings while on tablets or smartphones in their homes, customers can simply download the Xfinity TV app from the App Store, open the app and sign-in with their Xfinity TV credentials. Once signed-in, customers may begin browsing their full channel lineup in the “Guide” or scan available recordings for download in the “Saved” menu.
