Comcast plans to launch 'Xfinity Stream' app to replace Xfinity TV [Update]

Comcast is the most hated company in America by many estimations. It is unfortunate, then, that Comcast is the only cable company serving wide swaths of America.

And Gear VR's Oculus Store has tons of stuff - hundreds of experiences, games, 360-degree videos.
