The lights are on
Comcast says using the Xbox 360 Xfinity On Demand streaming app will not count against their bandwith cap.
The company clairied on a recent FAQ that the content is being delievered over a private IP network and not public Internet. The Xfinity TV app will be added in a future update for Xbox 360.
To use the app once it's live, Xbox 360 customers will have to have Xbox Live Gold, a subscription to the Xfinity internet service, and at least one cable box connected to the digital TV service.

You know, I think it's funny that the picture has a Xbox Elite, not a slim.
What kind of sense does this make? Bandwidth is bandwidth, and if they want to make a stink about it (granted you get a ton of data per month) this should be included too.
HAHAHAHA what a joke. comcast lies so bad. they say they dont charge for bandwith yet they disconnect me all the time for it.
I'm excited for this, Comcast has quite the crappy UI for it's on demand service.
lol data caps.
I find it funny, and very bad, that they still have data caps. It just shows how outdated Comcast's network is that they can't support people going over a data cap.
I was going to scream *** but then I reread the article. So owning a PS3 pretty much is still a kick in the nuts when it comes to netflix?? This would actually make sense as to why I went over my data cap by 15Gb... Seriously 250Gb data cap and me all by my lonesome managed to fill 50 % of it just watching shows on my ps3 via netflix. Now that I no longer use Netflix I max out to only 40% of the datacap.
Seems like a lot of hoops to jump through for a streaming service.
