Comcast Launches Xfinity TV Partner Program

  • Comcast Cable
PHILADELPHIA, PA – Comcast announced the launch of the Xfinity TV Partner Program to expand the range of retail devices its customers can use to access their Xfinity TV service. Leveraging open standard technologies, such as HTML5, the Xfinity TV Partner Program provides a common framework to which smart TV, TV-connected and IP-enabled retail device manufacturers can build to make the Xfinity TV Partner app available to eligible customers in Comcast markets without the need to lease a set-top box from Comcast.

As a result of Comcast's new partnership with Samsung Electronics, the first smart TV manufacturer to sign up for the program, Comcast customers will soon be able to access their Xfinity TV cable service in the home via the Xfinity TV Partner app on 2016 Samsung Smart TVs. Available later this year, the Xfinity TV Partner app will provide Samsung Smart TV customers with access to Xfinity's guide and live and on demand programming, including local broadcast, cable and public, educational and governmental (PEG) channels, as well as their cloud DVR recordings.

The new Xfinity TV Partner app is not an over-the-top product or Internet streaming service. It will enable Xfinity TV customers to receive their Xfinity TV cable service on connected TVs and other IP-enabled third-party devices. Partners who are interested in including the new app on their devices should visit https://developer.xfinity.com/cableapp
