Comcast Allows You to Stream Video on Demand with iPad Xfinity App

Comcast is hoping that you won’t begin to cut the cord when it comes to cable subscriptions, and the company is now making good on its promise to allow users to watch cable content on an iPad via the Xfinity app.

At this point, though, only video on demand programming is available and users still can’t stream live TV on the iPad. However, you can watch your VOD content anywhere over a WiFi connection. Live TV streaming is expected in future iterations of the Xfinity app.


Engadget is reporting that the Xfinity app offers a choice of only ten networks at this time, including BBC America, HBO, SHO, and others. The blog says that content was good and video started playing right away.
