So I am a Comcast customer for internet and I have dish for tv so no real need for services for tv, but recently I had to go I to there office and they were talking about they’re xfinity steaming service via the roku and they said I could add it for 10 dollars. I decided to five it a try.

Overall it’s pretty good, menu and layout is good and I figured for $10.00 it allows me to experiment with this and have access to my local RSN. Don’t know how long I will keep it but it’s not bad for those that are looking for cable steaming.
I am not sure if it’s available in all areas

What channels do you get for $10? Locals? I have their streaming box which has Netflix and Amazon Prime, it's pretty good but I also have YouTube TV which they don't have on their box.

I guess I would call it there extra package, which includes sports. And now that I think about it with the RSN and broadcast fees and they are viewing it as a triple play since I have phone and internet it more closer to 20.00, sorry for initially saying 10, but I still think it’s a pretty good deal if you want a backup service or just like multiple services like us SatelliteGuys like lol

Xfinity says this is false. The only way to get streaming is if you have a cable package.


Sorry, maybe I was not clear in my post. I did add a cable package, except this was done through there xfinity app via Roku

Xfinity says this is false.
Someone should tell them about their "Xfinity Stream" and "Flex" packages that do NOT require a video subscription.
The only way to get streaming is if you have a cable package.
This is a false statement. I was just watching a Sky News live feed from the US Senate using my Flex-enabled broadband-only account.
