Xfinity Share initially launched back in May, but at the time it was only available to people paying for a Triple Play package. Now anyone who subscribes to a Comcast service will be able to use the app. Unfortunately, the app’s key feature — streaming to others’ TVs — is limited by the fact that it only works on TVs that are connected to one of Comcast’s X1 DVRs, so most people won’t be able to receive a broadcast that way. The app can also be used to stream video from one phone to another; although, at that point, you’re basically just video chatting[.] – Jacob Kastrenakes, The Verge
