    roku is getting the comcast xfinity app later this year

    i have a few rokus but would love to have this on the ATV4,
    for me is cheaper to get cable/internet together than internet alone

    I'm in the same position as you (i.e. Internet alone would be more expensive than my current Internet + Limited Basic + HBO package). I haven't even connected the crappy cable box Comcast gave me, but if I could access their channels through Roku or ATV that would be pretty cool for a few things.

    You could get a cable card $7 if you have another cable box, free if you don't
    But then you have to buy an hdhomerun prime for $100

    If I can get the xfinity app on the Apple TV I can return the cable card , I'm paying $7 for it because I still have one Comcast DVR box in the house


    And I have two rokus in different rooms that can get live tv with this future xfinity app
    Currently I get live tv to the roku using plex app and a hdhomerun plugin , not the smoothest setup

    Wow, I never saw this coming but that's awesome. I'd definitely be interested in this if they brought it to the Apple TV.
