Engadget reports that Comcast has just upgraded its iPhone/iPod touch Xfinity TV app with video-on-demand streaming (VOD). However, just as with the iPad app, which has had VOD since April, the streaming service is only available over Wi-Fi. One bonus is that unlike Cablevision and Time Warners iPad apps you can stream the content over any Wi-Fi connection, without being tied to your own home Wi-Fi setup. The app's featured networks have increased to 25 with the update, and between them they now have a total of 6,000 hours of video available for your viewing pleasure, featuring shows from channels such as HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax, BBC America and Cartoon Network. The app will also automatically give you mobile access to the same channel line-up that you use at home, so that you can replicate your home viewing experience when on the move.
