Comcast Rolling Out Anyplay

Sounds something like a STB that allows you to watch live TV on iPad while within range of the Anyplay box. Only in Denver and Nashville currently - and no additional charge. Requires subscription to XFINITY HD Triple Play package and enrollment in the XFINITY Insider program - not familiar with that.

Post also mentions "bringing On Demand content to even more devices, such as the Xbox 360 and Samsung connected TVs."

perhaps comcast is offering this new product as a value add for their best customers who pay them the most? and also to control demand? just my guess.

This was announced at CES and posted in the "How will Comcast lie to us at this year's CES?" thread

Technically it was announced at Cable Show 2011. »Re: [DVR] Comcast posted a page + videos on Spectrum!!

So this wouldn't be a CES lie

why is android the red-headed step-child of comcast? Especially when they overtook the iphone as the most popular smartphone. Granted they only started on tablets in the past 2 years but put it on my android please.
