The Xfinity TV Go is Comcast's way of letting customers take some of the channels they're already paying for and stream them to an Android device. For something that doesn't cost extra—thankfully, considering the high price of cable—it's a nice perk. Comcast has recently brought the list of supported channels up to over 70 with the addition of AMC, BBC America, FOX Deportes, MOVIEPLEX, Showtime, Univision Deportes, and The Weather Channel. The full list is available to browse through online.
These networks joined those added back towards the beginning of 2014. Over the course of a year, the company has more than doubled the number of supported channels. Apparently around a third of Comcast's Xfinity TV customers now use its TV Everywhere apps to watch shows from computers and mobile devices. With such rapid growth, you can expect more channels to make the leap soon enough.
