Comcast (NASDAQ:CMCSA) is releasing a beta of the Xfinity TV app for Roku in the United States.

Featuring a guide with personalized recommendations and information for tens of thousands of movies and TV shows, the app is intended to let Xfinity TV customers watch live and on-demand programming, including local broadcast and Public Educational and Governmental (PEG) channels, as well as cloud DVR recordings, delivered over Comcast's private managed network, on Roku devices in the home.

The Xfinity TV beta app gives customers the ability to use and explore the beta Roku channel while Comcast continues to test performance, add features and functionality, and ensure that the app works smoothly. The beta app can be added from the Roku Channel Store. Initially, the Xfinity TV beta app will be available on Roku TV models and all Roku players released in the last couple years including the Roku Express, Roku Express+, Roku Streaming Stick (model 3600), Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+, Roku Ultra, Roku 4 (model 4400), Roku 3 (model 4230 and 4200), and Roku 2 (model 4210). Comcast plans to add more Roku players throughout the beta as part of the official launch.

The MSO plans to officially launch the Xfinity TV app for Roku later this year.
