Comcast updates its Xfinity TV apps to include watching movies, TV shows directly on iOS device through WiFi
These updates are hardly as important as events currently occurring in Egypt this evening, but I thought I’d post about these media updates, nonetheless.
Comcast has released an update to its universal iOS app which will now allow subscribers to its cable TV services to stream tv shows and movies directly to their iPhone or iPad. The app still does not allow watching live television on your mobile device, however. The new streaming content requires a WiFi connection.
Content that is available to Comcast customers include premium movie channels such as HBO, Showtime and Starz, as well as a limited number of networks such as TBS and TNT.
A number of other media apps were updated late today, as well. The BBC News, the Sunday Times, The Guardian for iPhone, Al Jazeera English Live, The Economist for iPad all were updated today, for the most part to fix bugs. (It is a shame that Al Jazeera has not launched an iPad app in time for the events taking place in Egypt.)
