Comcast announced that Xfinity customers on the X1 Entertainment Operating System can now live stream their favorite life moments over the Internet from their smartphone to the TV to share with friends and family. Through the company’s new Xfinity Share app customers can live stream or send photos and recorded videos to their TV, or to the TV of another X1 customer, as well as live stream and share content to mobile phones. To use Xfinity Share, currently both the sender and receiver must be Xfinity Triple Play customers with X1 DVR capable set-top boxes. “We’re giving our customers the power to share special moments in their lives as they happen” said Patti Loyack, VP of Communications, Comcast Cable. “Share lets users broadcast whatever they see in real time to the biggest screen in the home. So now a grandmother in San Francisco can watch along on her TV at the exact moment her grandson in Philadelphia blows out his birthday candles.” The Xfinity Share app is available to download for free from the Apple Store for iOS devices or from Google Play for Android devices. The app leverages WebRTC, an open Internet standard that supports real-time communication over Web browsers.
