Seems like this has been in the works for a while now, and those MS Employees that receive the Beta have been running this for a while now. I see that it is available on FIOS and has been for a while now. Would love to hear from a Xfinity/Comcast rep on this if you happen to see this.
Does anyone know if the Full "On Demand" Library is available for those who may have seen and or used this yet?
Anxiously awaiting Xfinity On Demond on my XBOX 360!
I don't have access to the beta, but I have all the answers that you're looking for. OK, maybe not all, but 99.9% of them! The only thing I don't have right now is the release date.
Moving on, you asked if the full "On Demand" library was going to be available. The answer is "no". The only difference being we can not purchase pay-per-view movies via the Xbox 360, just like XfinityTV.com. The only items we will see are Free TV/Movies, "National Broadcaster" (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX), and Premium Networks (Streampix, Starz, Encore, HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, The Movie Channel, etc.).
For those of you who subscribe to HBO or Cinemax and have separate questions about HBO Go or Max Go, these services will be integrated into the Xfinity App on the Xbox! Even though Max Go will not have an app on the Xbox (unlike HBO Go, also coming soon), being an Xfinity subscriber gives us that slight advantage! Just remember, you have to be a Cinemax subscriber!
Next, I am happy to say that the Xfinity app on the Xbox will not count any video watching towards your 250 GB monthly bandwidth limit! Go all out!
Finally, I want to point out that "Live TV" watching was mentioned. This will not be available on the Xbox ... yet. Xfinity did not rule out this option, and it's a possibility in the future!
I don't work for Comcast/Xfinity! How did I get all this info? See for yourself!
