XFINITY TV Player App Receives Beta Support For Android 4.1

The ability to take your movies/TV shows mobile and enjoy them on a screen larger than 4-inches is one of the advantages of owning a tablet. So naturally, if you just picked up a brand spanking new Nexus 7, that’s just what you’ll want to do. In a surprise move by XFINITY, they have already gone ahead and updated their XFINITY TV Player app with beta support for Android 4.1.

The beta support will allow Nexus 7 and Comcast/XFINITY subscribers to browse and watch thousands of XFINITY ON Demand TV shows from networks and premium channels such as HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network and BBC America (yay for Doctor Who). Since it’s “beta” support, there may be some glitches and the app doesn’t yet include an optimized UI, but Comcast promises all this will be taken care of in the next update.

Kudos to them for the quick support for Jelly Bean — a move I certainly wasn’t expecting from Comcast. Hit up the link below to grab the latest version of the XFINITY TV Player app for Android.
