September 5, 2019
Comcast and LG Electronics Sept. 5 announced the launch of the Xfinity Stream beta app for 2019, 2018, and 2017 LG Smart TVs.
Xfinity Stream gives subscribers the ability to access the live, on-demand, and cloud DVR programming on LG 4K Ultra HD Smart TVs — LG OLED and LG NanoCell TVs — and HD Smart TVs, without the need for a traditional set-top box.
With Xfinity Stream on LG 4K Ultra HD and Standard HD Smart TVs, Xfinity TV subs can browse the Emmy Award-winning X1 guide, featuring rich and immersive graphics and imagery.
Other features include quick access to their most recently watched programming; parental controls; TV shows, movies, sports, kids, and the ability to access and scroll through the guide on the same screen while watching live programming.
LG is a member of the Xfinity TV Partner Program, launched to expand the range of retail devices Xfinity TV customers can use to access the programming that is included with their subscription on the television in the home.
All content within Xfinity Stream for participating partner program devices is delivered over Comcast’s secure private managed network, enabling customers to access and enjoy their cable service on devices like LG Smart TVs, without the need to lease a traditional set-top box from Comcast.
The 2019 LG OLED TV lineup features screen sizes ranging from 55 to 77-inch class options.
