    This has been avalaible for at least a week or so now. I dont see any new update. I was already watching and streaming in the play now section. The on demand section still only shows summary of movies. Doesnt allow u to stream from on demand. Im a comcast customer also thats signed in to the app. Unless the update pops up later in itunes.
    Do u know exaxtly what version this is for the "on demand" streaming? Not the "play now" streaming.

    Yeah. I was playing around with it last night too ~ tried to play a TV series show and it kept telling me " your selection will start in a few seconds" Then on my TV it said to get my remote and do something....

    But I fell asleep.

    I need to play more with it. Or just follow you and you can figure it all out.
