In USA the largest cable and internet service provider Comcast is developing a television streaming system for Ipad users, just like the Cablevision and Time Warner. As the product was announced early this year, but yet no details have been posted yet.

This new TV streaming product is called AnyPlay, This will allow Comcast users to view live television on their ipad if they are connected with their home network, but to use this feature users need to have a special Motorola Television cable TV-to-IPTV box that, apparently, takes the live cable stream and sends it directly to the Xfinity TV iPad app over a local wireless network. But this service will not work over Wi-Fi from any other locations or even using 3G.

There are other solution like Time Warner, stream live video using internet connection.But Comcast AnyPlay appears to be a cable box that will sends video to the iPad rather than to a television. Users will able to watch all channels included with their Xfinity TV service. Also on the other hand users are allowed to register up to 10 tablets, but they will only be able to watch TV on one tablet at the same time.

Right now, Xfinity customers can use the Xfinity TV app to watch on demand programming, search tv listings, schedule DVR recordings and more.

Still there are not news have announced about the release dates or availability, but the device will be available in limited markets at the first time, and spreading to all Comcast customers eventually.

  1. Comcast's app will have the same inherent problem when it is released as TWC, Cablevision, and now Directv. Two big problems, first problem is that you only have access to "some" or "most of your channels, and not one of these apps will let you stream when you leave your house. Which will keep you and your "mobile" device safe, while taking the mobile out of that device. Working at DISH I had purchased a sling adapter last year, I figured it would be a good niche item for streaming television every once in a while, I just didn't realize that I purchased the Cadillac of streaming devices, and I didn't know streaming to mobile devices would burn through the industry like wildfire. With my sling adapter, I don't have the problem of all those apps, I can stream to my mobile device when I am actually mobile, and on top of that I can stream "all" my live subscribed channels as well as my recorded shows whenever and wherever I want.
