Initial access limited to Denver, Nashville
Comcast has begun an initial rollout of its AnyPlay TV service for the iPad. The technology allows Comcast subscribers to watch live TV over their home Wi-Fi network, regardless of what someone may be watching on a TV in another room. On top of the Wi-Fi restriction, though, the option is currently available only to Xfinity HD Triple Play subscribers, and just those in Denver and Nashville.
Greater regional coverage is promised in coming months, as is support for Motorola's Xoom tablet. Without access to AnyPlay, Comcast subscribers can still use the Xfinity TV app to access about 8,000 hours' worth of on-demand movies and TV shows. That content is viewable on any Internet connection, including 3G networks.
