Comcast’s Xfinity Share streaming app now available for all Xfinity users

Live streaming now is not just about binge-watching on Netflix or Hulu. With the advent of such apps like Periscope and Meerkat, Facebook’s foray into Live sessions for celebrities, and even gamers streaming their gameplay, users want the ability to share their most important moments with people who matter, and they want to do it live. Comcast a few months ago launched their own live streaming service to limited users, but now, all Xfinity subscribers will be able to use the service and app as well.

Comcast is the latest to join the fray with their new service called Stream.

If you're a Comcast subscriber, there is now an app that will let you do so, for your loved ones to be able to see what's going on at a birthday party, a family dinner, even a wedding, even when they're far away.
