Xfinity Streaming on Apple TV – Eligibility and Requirements

Eligibility

The Xfinity Streaming app is open to anyone who has subscribed to an Xfinity plan, whether that is an Internet or a TV plan. Of course, a subscription to a TV plan gets you more than just the basic entertainment experience since it brings you all your TV channels, your on-demand library, and a whole lot more. But if you like to keep things simple – you can even get limited use with an Xfinity Internet-only plan.

All the app requires from your end is a valid Xfinity ID and password. To fully enjoy all that this app has to offer on an Apple TV device, you’ll need to meet certain key requirements, these include:

  • If you’re using the Xfinity Stream app on an Apple device (iPhone or iPad), it should at least be running on iOS 14.0 update

Number of Concurrent Active Streams

  • If you are a student and subscribed to Xfinity on Campus, you can have only active stream at any time
