Comcast is adding its Xfinity Stream TV app onto its Comcast Business TV offering so its business customers can have multidevice live TV capabilities.
“Xfinity Stream for Business is a great solution for waiting rooms, employee break areas, lobbies and more,” said Jeremy Andreoli, executive director of Video Product, Strategy and Business Development for Comcast Business, in a statement. “Businesses can surprise and delight both their customers and employees by giving them more flexibility to watch programming and, at the same time, avoid unnecessary costs associated with purchasing an extra television. Xfinity Stream for Business allows businesses to get even more value out of their Comcast Business TV subscription and improve experiences for their customers and employees alike.”
Xfinity Stream works on its standalone app on smartphones and tablets, and via the Xfinity Stream portal on computers, and it enables up to five users to stream content concurrently. It’s available at no additional cost to Comcast Business TV PrivateView customers with a Comcast Business Internet subscription.
The expansion of Xfinity Stream comes more than one year after Comcast originally launched the product as a successor to the Xfinity TV app. The app offers more than 200 live channels, along with remote DVR access and 40,000 on demand titles.
"We’re focused on creating the best entertainment experiences across platforms and continuing to give Xfinity TV customers more choice in how, when and where they access their content," said Matt Strauss, executive vice president and general manager of Video and Entertainment Services at Comcast Cable. "With the Xfinity Stream app, we are giving customers access to the best content in and out of the home with a growing list of advanced features and capabilities that make the mobile experience nearly identical to the cable experience they enjoy at home."
