Comcast's New Mobile App Streams Live TV Anywhere

Comcast's mobile video app is getting a huge revamp, adding around 35 channels of live streaming TV alongside the current on-demand shows and movies. The newly-named Xfinity TV Go app could arrive as early as this week for Android and iOS.

As The Verge reports, Comcast subscribers will be able to stream content over any Wi-Fi network (home or otherwise), and Verizon customers will have the option to stream on-the-go over 3G or LTE. Available channels include heavy hitters like ESPN, MSNBC, Disney, FOX and CNN, with more expected as the app rolls out.

Comcast's new app isn't the first to stream live TV — FiOS and Time Warner offer similar setups. But Comcast is huge, and the more options they roll out, the better it is for cable customers. [The Verge]
