Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

There are Xfinity Apps for mobile devices. How do I access Xfinity TV using my new Apple TV? Is there a way to download the movie/show to iTune on my computer?

No sorry there is no way to do that currently.  the app can only be downloaded to mobile devices and can only playback through the iphone or ipad.

Use AirPlay mirror option on your iPad.

Using Airplay mirroring works with HBO Go but not the Xfinity app. Pity and a shame. We should have that flexibility for the high prices we pay to have this entertainment product in our home. There will will continue to be defectors if this company doesn't catch up with the times, demands of the public and technology.

No doubt it's mind boggling they disabled Mirroring! Who else thinks so? Support the majority (iOS) if you want to remain dominant. Enabling downloading is a nice feature as i travel a lot but why disable mirroring seriously, iOS users really want Apple UI and not the on screen primitive cable-box UI. I've done the math and I could buy all the shows I really care about in iTunes and just keep the high speed Internet part of triple play and an occasional Redbox rental. Is the goal to anger your long term (15 year) premium subscribers? Then success.

not a shame a SHAM. If your laptop has an HDMI port it will work with laptop to TV. Comcast is stubborn, they want that $10/month per TV.  IF they had intellegent leadersahip they would be offering a streaming option where we could subscribe for online viewing and lose tge cable boxes altogether

I think you will find they don't even support the mac computers all that well. This is the only service I have found that streams so crappy.  Choppy video artifacts etc.. This is a complete disappointment. Yet I expect nothing more from the cable company for some reason.

I agree. This garbage makes me want to cancel cable. In fact, that is what I will do. This company is so greedy.

I cancelled Comcast TV 6 months ago and haven't looked back. Comcast is dead already, the Brians just don't know it yet.

Re: Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

What about when you're traveling, this seems very silly that the xfinity app isn't compatible with airplay. Do you have plans to fix this? If you don't consider these customer service driven requests then I see comcast becoming obsolete.

Re: Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

I couldn't agree more.  RIght now I'm so disgusted with comcast.  The amount I'm paying is crazy, but what's more maddening is I can't even feel I'm getting my money's worth when I travel.

Re: Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

I have the same problem...I bought the AppleTV hoping I can watch my favorite shows in my BR...but I found out it does not work...no mirroring. EPB got this option???I am still hoping Comcast will fix this problem. Those small adapters were done to limit channels and they are hoping that the subscribers will just add more HD boxes to view the premium channels.

Also got a ROKU 2 streaming video player....surprisingly, Comcast does not support it either...so I can only watch the other channels on my iPad when I go out of my room with the HD box.

Re: Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

I watch xfinity to go on Apple TV without a problem at all. I have to trick it to work. I start watching a show on Amazon and select view on Apple TV instead of on iphone. I then hit DONE and immediately launch xfinity to go on one of the available networks. It then displays on Apple TV. Works every time.

If You jailbrake your iphone , you can streem everything from IPhone to Apple TV, just do not turn Mirroring ON, only check Apple TV, thats it.

Re: Watch Xfinity TV shows on Apple TV

Are there any plans to make Xfinity compatible with Apple TV? Why is it not compatible? Do Apple and Xfinity have a beef goin on, there seems to be no reason why every other provider I know of is capable of connecting to Apple TV but Xfinity. It is very frustrating, I purchased Apple TV partly to have a better control platform to watch cable from and after installing the unit I find this out, do you have any suggestions? Do you know of any plans to change this policy? Thanks for your assistance

Just about every other providers (i.e. Amazon Prime Movies, Netflix, etc ... ) offered apps to allow users to interface their movies with Apple TV. Xfinity is just too controlling in many aspects. I even bought an Apple HDMI adapter for my IPAD hoping that I can view their movies on a bigger display, but the minute I plug this adapter to my IPAD, my TV would give me a Notice Box indicating that my agreement with Xfinity does not allow me to do such thing. The bottom line, it is not Apple controlling this but Comcast. I have been a customer of Comcast (started out with RoadRunner, then Time Warner) since 1992 and I am contemplating about switching with CenturyLink. It just bothers me when I see good deals for non-Comcast customers instead of loyal customers like me - rather, I saw my monthly bill double, with less options, too much restrictions, and my service is currently experiencing daily 1 hour or two shutdowns for the past 3 days now.
