Comcast Corporation digital subscribers using the Apple iPhone and iPod touch now can stream thousands of hours of on demand video on their devices through the company’s Xfinity TV app, which has been downloaded more than two million times since it launched in November. Beginning today, customers using these devices and the iPad can download a new version of the Xfinity TV app, and have access to a large collection of VOD content.
Comcast introduced on demand content for viewing both inside and outside of the home on the iPad in February. During the past three months, Comcast has nearly doubled the amount of entertainment available to stream through the app, now totaling almost 6,000 hours. To reach this milestone, Comcast has recently added several new programmers, bringing in video selections from 25 content partners.
This latest release of the app is the fourth significant update since it launched seven months ago. Additional enhancements have also been incorporated into this version to help further personalize the customer’s experience, including enabling users to filter their content choices by genre and network.
For first-time users, the app will automatically populate with the customer’s channel lineup, eliminating the need for a manual set up process.
In addition to these features and its on demand video streaming capabilities, the Xfinity TV app also can be used as a remote control and discovery tool.
