XFinity TV Player app from Comcast lets customers download TV shows, movies to mobile devices

Xfinity TV customers have enjoyed the benefit of being among the first to stream thousands of On Demand video choices to their tablet or smartphone through an app – a great entertainment option while connected to the Internet. And now, Comcast has added a new capability to its Xfinity TV Player app that enables customers to download content from the Internet directly to their mobile device, so they can watch their favorite TV shows and movies in the palm of their hand – offline, wherever they are.

Xfinity TV digital customers can download thousands of premium TV and movie choices from SHOWTIME, STARZ, ENCORE and MOVIEPLEX via the app onto their Apple or Android smartphones or tablets. Xfinity TV digital customers who subscribe to these premium networks can simply download an available movie or TV show over an Internet connection, then watch it wherever their travels take them. This feature is perfect for keeping entertained in places that generally don’t have an available or optimal Internet connection; in an airplane, on family car trips, or even on the subway.

“Millions of smartphone and tablet users in the U.S. watch video on their mobile devices.  With that in mind, Comcast is continuously innovating the TV experience and developing new features and tools that provide our customers with more options for how, when and where they watch content,” said Charlie Herrin, Senior Vice President of  Product Design and Development at Comcast Cable. “Today’s Xfinity TV Player enhancement underscores that commitment to our customers by adding more flexibility for them to watch entertainment on their terms – now without having to rely on an Internet connection to watch their favorite programming while on-the-go.”

Among the popular selections now available to download, subscribers can catch up on hit programming from SHOWTIME, including Homeland and Dexter, and STARZ, including Spartacus and Magic City.  And to keep the younger generation entertained, popular kids’ movies on STARZ such as Cars 2 and The Muppets are available to download. Comcast plans to add many more downloadable choices from additional programming partners in the coming months. All customers will be able to download content over an available WiFi Internet connection. In addition, as part of their innovation technology joint venture, Comcast and Verizon Wireless have teamed up to offer Verizon Wireless customers the flexibility to download and stream content directly to mobile devices over its 4G LTE network.

Comcast offers its Xfinity TV digital customers two apps – the Xfinity TV Player app and the Xfinity TV app – for making viewing and managing entertainment easier than ever. The Xfinity TV Player app is designed for customers who simply want to watch video on their mobile devices – now with more than 18,500 streaming On Demand choices via Apple and Android devices, as well as the thousands of downloadable choices currently available. The company’s Xfinity TV app helps customers personalize and manage the TV viewing experience including scheduling your DVR, remote tuning and a queue where you can keep track of the latest TV shows and movie releases. Both apps can be downloaded free-of-charge on Google Play and Apple iTunes.
