Comcast has just announced the release of iOS Xfinity TV Go App that allows Comcast customers to live stream content anywhere using a Wi-Fi connection.
The iOS Xfinity TV Go App is actually the re-branded version of the Xfinity TV Player App. The re-branded, updated app allows Comcast customers to watch live TV on their iOS-based iPhone, iPad or Android-based devices.
In a move which will give Comcast subscribers the advantage of watching popular channels on the go, the cable giant revealed in a Tuesday announcement that its Xfinity TV Player app is now becoming the Xfinity TV Go app; and will be launched in the coming days.
Last week, cable giant Comcast publicized a new offer - dubbed `Internet Plus' - on its website; giving its customers the option of a pared-down basic cable package with premium movie and TV channel HBO and its HBO Go online.
In order to continue purchasing unused airwaves from other firms, Verizon Wireless, the largest mobile provider in the U. S. and cable company Comcast in principle agreed to limit joint ventures. The cross-marketing agreement includes Verizon Wireless's bid to purchase unused airwaves owned by cable companies worth $3.6 billion.
Philadelphia-based cable giant Comcast will soon allow its customers to reap the benefits of video calling through their TV sets, thanks to its partnership with world-renowned video calling service Skype.
Announced on the eve of Cable Show in Chicago, the service will require subscribers to have a high-quality video camera, an adaptor box, and a special remote control that will have texting capabilities.
Users will be allowed to utilize Skype’s full screen video calling as well as instant messaging.
In response to the US lawmakers’ concerns that the proposed merger between US cable provider Comcast and NBC Universal may restrict customers’ access to programming and raise cable prices, Comcast said on Thursday that the deal, which is still “not a sure thing,” will neither hamper competition and cable rates, nor the availability of Internet-based TV.
