Comcast's new Xfinity xFi app gives you more control over your home network

Changing your network settings, especially on a per-device basis, isn't easily possible unless you have a newer router - like the Google Wifi. For Xfinity customers using one of the standard Wireless Gateways, you could change basic settings from the Xfinity Account app, but not much else. Now Comcast has released a new app, xFi, that gives customers far greater control over their home network.

Comcast's XFINITY TV app is now XFINITY Stream, and users are pissed

Comcast is doing what Comcast does best: making its monopolized customers really, really hate the company. That's just Comcast's general state of being, but in this specific sense, it's all about the streaming cable TV app for Android. As promised, the former XFINITY TV app has been replaced with the all-new, all-different XFINITY Stream.

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. Actually, that might have a lot to do with how disliked it is. At least Comcast is trying to make its apps better. After spending a few years improving the Xfinity TV app (it isn't bad now), the company has announced the successor—Xfinity Stream.

Comcast planning to launch wireless service as Verizon MVNO next year

You know how everyone absolutely loves Comcast and never complains about its cable service? Soon, you'll be able to do even more business with Comcast as the company launches an MVNO using a combination Verizon LTE and WiFi. In seriousness, I don't know who in their right mind wants this.

Comcast Already Has Its Xfinity TV App Running On The Nvidia Shield TV, No Set-Top Box Necessary

While Google I/O is all the rage on our side of the internetz, another conference is taking place that is probably a lot less exciting for us: INTX, the Internet and Television Expo. But one interesting nugget has escaped INTX and found its place on our radar as Android users and it's about Comcast, of all evil companies and things.

Last month, Comcast had announced the Xfinity TV Partner program, an initiative aimed to make the Xfinity TV app available to smart TVs, and TV-connected and IP-enabled devices (read: other set-top boxes) without the requirement for a Comcast set-top box. Think of this as Comcast wanting to be Netflix'ish, ie available to you through an app and with a subscription, no need to call the company and lease a physical box from it.

Rumor: T-Mobile's German Parent Company May Want To Sell The Carrier To... Comcast

T-Mobile has been responsible for seriously shaking up the American cellular carrier for the last couple of years, disrupting nearly every area from contracts to phone subsidies to data sales models. So hearing that T-Mo's parent company Deutsche Telekom may be interested in selling it off is somewhat alarming. Hearing that they may be interested in selling to Comcast, quantifiably one of the most despised companies in the entire country, is like watching that head-crushing scene from Game of Thrones all over again.

Reuters reports that Deutsche Telekom is in active talks to sell T-Mobile USA to cable giant Comcast, according to business magazine Manager, which cites anonymous sources.

Comcast Releases Xfinity Share, Offering A Way To Stream Live Video From Your Phone To A TV

Comcast has had a rough couple of weeks with the implosion of the Time Warner merger. Maybe releasing a new feature will help it move past the disappointment? Xfinity Share is a tool that lets you stream pictures and video to a cable box, either yours or someone else's. This is part of the Xfinity X1 platform, so both you and the owner of the target box need to be subscribers.
