Content that is now available completely free to Comcast customers On Demand includes output from such premium cable channels as HBO (True Blood), SHOWTIME (Dexter), Starz, Encore, Cinemax and MoviePlex. Comcast says that the selection available now is just the beginning, and customers can expect thousands more choices to be added for viewing via the iPad app in the weeks and months to come.

    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.:D

    It's super simple u just have to set it up once you install the app. Your box has to be a dvr enabled box, once u sign in using your comcast I'd it'll find any box that is associated with your account (dvr box that is) ... Theres three menus that u can choose from, listings, on demand, and play now; to change the channel go to the list section and a screen that looks like a tv guide will appear, younsimply scroll or search for what you want push the button and bam the tv changes channel. You can also select on demand shows to play on your tv but you need to accept them using the main remote. Not sure why they did it this way but I think it's so you can accept the chargers (if there are ne) by using your remote. The play now library is real cool but only premium channels and some random channels on it only, wish u could watch anything that is on the on demand menu on your iPad....
