How can your point stand when it's wrong? Xfinity is not a content provider.

Xfinity is a content deliverer.

It's a BRAND...

So are you saying that Comcast doesn't offer broadband services under the Xfinity name?

If not then I don't see what point you are trying to make other than just arguing for arguments sake.

Comcast offers both broadband services (content deliverer) as well as shows produced by NBC Universal (content provider).

Xfinity is a content deliverer. NBC University is a content provider. Both are now Comcast. Comcast can prefer it's own content over Internet video competitors (for example Netflix) by simply excluding or simply refusing to negotiate with them.

Xfinity is a brand, not a subsidiary. Comcast is the service provider, not "Xfinity."

That's a nit-pick on my choice of words. My point still stands.
