A Roku Xfinity Channel Means Good News for Comcast Customers
With a Roku Xfinity channel, Comcast subscribers soon can dump their expensive extra cable TV boxes!
Back in April of 2016, Comcast announced they would be partnering with Roku to bring their cable TV subscribers a channel like Time Warner had. While it still has not yet arrived, latest reports on their forum indicate an Xfinity Roku channel could still be here before the end of 2016.
Comcast seems to have dragged their feet getting their Xfinity channel up and running on Roku.
Recently a new fire has been lit with AT&T's New DirecTV Now Live cable TV streaming service. Their streaming service now provides over a hundred cable channels, (channel list is here) with no long term commitment or equipment to buy. DirecTV still does not have a Roku channel but right now DirecTV is offering a Free Fire TV Stick or Apple TV and a 100 Channel package for only $35/month.
The DirecTV Now Roku channel is expected to arrive within the first few months of 2017.
Currently Comcast is charging customers an additional $5/month per cable TV box. If you have 4 televisions, this could amount to a tidy sum in a years time of $180 more.
By using a Roku on additional TV's instead and using the Roku Xfinity channel, you could watch most all of the same channels live and on-demand. See this Roku Cable TV channels list.
Once the Comcast Roku Xfinity channel arrives, we will provide the add channel link here. In the meantime, why not enjoy watching some other great Roku channels.
