RE: Xfinity Set top Box vs Streaming App

We have Xfinity with a "Box" for our main viewing and use the Xfinity App on Roku's for other lesser used TV's in the house.

As Apps go, the Xfinity app is not too bad, but it is nowhere near as smart as the functions on the box.

The Xfinity box is faster to use/operate and does a whole lot of clever things that the app does not.

Price wise I do not think there is much difference. If I recall, if you choose not to use the box they still charge some kind of access fee, a little less than the box, but not much less.

For the little extra cost of the box you get much greater ease of use.
