Comcast and LG have announced the launch of the Xfinity Stream beta app for 2019, 2018, and 2017 LG Smart TVs, allowing access to live, on demand, and cloud DVR programming included with an Xfinity TV subscription on LG 4K UHD Smart TVs (including LG OLED and LG NanoCell models) and HD Smart TVs, without needing to lease a traditional set-top box.
Xfinity Stream will enable Xfinity TV customers to browse the X1 guide which features “rich and immersive” graphics and imagery. Features also include access to recently watched programs, parental controls, destinations for TV shows, movies and sports, and easier browsing and discovery of new titles. It is possible to access and scroll through the guide on the same screen while watching live programming.
LG is a member of the Xfinity TV Partner Program which was initiated to expand the range of devices its customers can use to access programming included with at-home subscription packages. LG says that all content within Xfinity Stream for participating partner program devices is delivered over Comcast’s secure private managed network, enabling access to cable service on devices without needing a set-top box from Comcast.
