newswire: shout! factory app to bring mst3k to comcast’s xfinity boxes


comcast is aggressively turning its xfinity cable boxes into little internet machines in the hopes of convincing customers that they should keep throwing away money on an expensive cable subscription instead of buying an apple tv. we’ve previously reported on comcast adding netflix and youtube apps to the xfinity boxes, and now it’s throwing in a shout! factory tv app as well. like the existing app available on the usual array of smart devices, this one will allow you to stream movies and tv shows from shout! factory’s eclectic library, and the xfinity version will launch with “curated episodes” of stuff like home movies, mystery science theater 3000, the dick cavett show, thunderbirds and the shout! factory original series backlot. plus, a press release mentions that the app will also in






comment on comcast announces xfinity apps for samsung smart tvs, roku streamers


they say in the fine print for the xfinity beta app on roku that the outlet fees will be waived during beta testing but then when they release the full version the customer will be informed of the fees and be able to opt out of the service.... so basically they are going to charge us monthly cable box rental fees and make us buy our own rokus.... this is just another way to nickle and dime their customers. all the other major cable companies in the country allow their customers to use 3rd party apps to watch shows using their cable provider login information... comcast does not allow this and is trying to justify another way to charge for a service that should already be included in their already overpriced services.

comment on ‘the good fight’ ratings debut soft for solo night on cbs, ‘son of zo


i agree with you. if they had put it on regular cbs, they would have had good ratings in the total number of viewers. most, if not all, of the good wife fans would have watched it. i would have, but i am not going to pay extra for it. i also have the comcast/xfinity gold premium package and i have more shows that i can watch. i think the cbs network made a mistake putting this show on a pay-per-view basis.

newswire: comcast is basically making youtube into a tv channel


showing an impressive level of foresight, comcast has boldly predicted that this youtube thing that has been entertaining internet users for the last 12 years might end up being a pretty big deal. to capitalize on this phenomenon, comcast has announced that it’s going to launch a dedicated youtube app on its xfinity x1 boxes later this year, putting the site’s content directly alongside the real tv shows and movies you can normally watch on cable. the specifics of the deal—as in how much money is changing hands or how many ritualistic sacrifices the two companies are engaging in—have not been announced, but this will certainly make youtube bigger and comcast richer one way or another. this news comes from variety, which says the x1 box’s voice command abilities will also be usable within
