Comcast has announced the arrival of the Xfinity Share app. The app lets Xfinity customers on the X1 Entertainment Operating System live stream or send recorded videos and photos to their TVs and to other customers from their mobile devices.

"We're giving our customers the power to share special moments in their lives as they happen," said Patti Loyack, Vice President of Communications, Comcast Cable.  "Whether a child's baseball game, a graduation or just a beautiful sunset, Share lets users broadcast whatever they see in real time to the biggest screen in the home.  So now a grandmother in San Francisco can watch along on her TV at the exact moment her grandson in Philadelphia blows out his birthday candles."

With Xfinity Share, Comcast subscribers can live stream or send photos and recorded videos to their TV, or to the TV of another X1 customer from their smartphones. The app is now available on iOS and Android mobile devices. Comcast is utilizing WebRTC, an open Internet standard for real-time communication over web browsers, to power the software. In addition, Comcast will be adding several more features to the app later this year, including the ability to share content through a URL via email, content sharing to up to five people at the same time, stop/pause/rewind functions for live streams, and live stream storage.

In order to access Xfinity Share, both the sender and receiver must be Xfinity Triple Play customers with X1 DVR capable set-top boxes.
