Xfinity iPad App Now Streaming Video On Demand for Select Networks

Posted Thu Feb 3, 2011 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

Cartoon Network, HBO, Showtime, TNT and more are available to watch.

You've been waiting patiently - or maybe not so patiently - for Comcast's promised iPad streaming feature. That patience has paid off and the day has finally arrived.

If you pick up the new version of the Xfinity iPad app, you'll finally be able to watch television and movies on your slick tablet. As you might expect from a streaming app (and anything Comcast doles out), there are some pretty serious limitations.

For starters, there are only a few channels currently on board with the program. You can watch on demand content from BBC America, Cartoon Network, Cinemax, Starz Encore, HBO, MoviePlex, Showtime, Starz, TBS, and TNT.

There's no word yet on when more channels will be added.
