One of the most annoying things about streaming TV is about to change

Cable-TV customers with Comcast, Cox Communications, and MediaCom will soon no longer have to enter a password to stream on TV apps like Comcast Xfinity TV, AMC, FX, NBC, and Watch ESPN. The apps are adopting a new universal-login standard—an expansion of TV Everywhere solutions—that will use subscribers’ home wifi networks to automatically authenticate their cable subscriptions. That means you could easily switch back and forth between games on the WatchESPN app and NBC Sports Live Extra without having to sign in to each. – Ashley Rodriguez, Quartz
