Comcast Xfinity to Stream Live TV to iPad in 2011
Comcast announced Wednesday that the company's Xfinity branded digital content platform will begin streaming live and on-demand content to tablets, including Apple's iPad, beginning later in 2011. As long as you have a wireless router, you'll be good to go and able to enjoy live TV anywhere in your house.
The second part of Comcast's tablet-themed announcement Wednesday dealt with the "play now" feature for the Xfinity TV iPad app, which will arrive in the coming weeks. Upon arrival, nearly 3,000 hours of On Demand content will be at the finger tips of iPad users - content that can be watched inside or outside the home. According to J T. Ramsay, Chief Blogger, Comcast Corporation, "even more choices" will be added in the future.
Coinciding with Comcast's plan to push Xfinity streaming content to the iPad and other tablet PCs in the coming months, Comcast also unveiled a revamped Xfinity TV website. The tweaks now allow one's laptop or desktop to serve as an advanced remote control and sophisticated search engine. Via the new improvements, you can now search and browse live TV programs and On Demand content and then click on the desired channel or program to pop it up on your TV screen.

So if you have 3G Unrestrictor you should be able to stream content regardless if you have a WiFi connection or not, right? It's the same restriction as FaceTime for ip4 or App Store 'over 10MB' apps I assume.

Ahhh, just another push for me to spring for an iPad. I see advertisements all over and whenever I play with one at a store I want one so bad. I have an iphone but the iPad would just be such a sweet thing to carry around when I don't want to bring my laptop places. Especially since my macbook's battery life is down to about 2 hours...
I'll obviously wait until the 2nd version is announced so I can actually afford one.

How is this going to work. Eventually this stuff will stream with out WiFi. Man are people going to have outrageous data bills. This is the future for cell providers. Maybe the voice plans will go down to nothing. Well I can dream can't I.

It is interesting to me that Comcast is doing this now in 2011, it is a good thought that they have. I wonder if they know that DISH has been doing this for a while now. The only difference is that with DISH you don't have to be inside your home or within a router network in order to receive the content. You can watch the content from wherever you are. As an employee of DISH, I can tell you this makes DISH unique because we are the only ones that have TRUE TV Everywhere; and thats pretty neat! Check it out!
