Comcast has started in-home streaming but it’s not quite live video Valhalla.
Streaming access to the Xfinity TV linear lineup via the internet is available only in limited areas for certain tablets -- and only with the use of a new device, the AnyPlay. The service, long in the works, is rolling out first for Xfinity HD Triple Play customers in Denver and Nashville. It will only work on the iPad to start, with the Motorola Xoom up next. The AnyPlay device works as a bridge between the wireless router and the devices, with an updated Xfinity TV app as the player.
