Pro Tip: The XFINITY TV app allows you to watch live TV on your entire Comcast XFINITY channel lineup via a mobile device - while you're on your home Wi-Fi network, that is. When you're away from home you can still access a large portion of your channels, plus on-demand content, via TV Everywhere.

Recap

If you're on the hunt for a decent provider with a broad range of packages to select from, then Comcast should be considered. Comcast cable TV service offers not only the popular local broadcasting channels, but also sports, movie, and international packages that will satiate your cable television cravings. That said, one downside is that the X1 receiver upgrade can only stream Netflix - not other services such as Hulu and Amazon Prime instant video (as of yet, anyway).

You can also bundle Comcast XFINITY cable with high-speed internet or XFINITY Voice home phone services to help you save. If you're looking for a wide selection of TV packages, a state-of-the-art set-top box, plus perks like DVR service, you can't go wrong with Comcast XFINITY TV.
