Comcast XFINITY TV Player App Has Arrived

Comcast announced the XFINITY TV Player app back in January 2011 stating the app would eventually be coming to Android tablets.  Fortunately, Comcast did one better and made the app available to all devices running Android 2.3 and higher yesterday.  The app allows one to watch thousands of XFINITY ON Demand TV shows and movies wherever you have a data connection much like Netflix or Hulu Plus.  One other key requirement includes an XFINITY TV or Comcast Digital Video service, so I can’t use it.  I did however confirm that it does request root access on rooted phones.  Not sure why the app feels it needs the access, but word on the street is that it works fine after denying root access.  The app has a very simple interface but word on the street is that it works well and people are generally pretty happy with it.  The app can be found in the Google Play Store.  So if you’re a Comcast subscriber, be sure to check this one out.  Don’t forget to let us know what you think!
