“Is it time yet?” my daughter asked, again. She was so excited for our epic family movie night. We were out running errands, and I had just one stop left before our family movie night would begin.

We ran into the Xfinity store as our last stop for the day. I paid my bill with the friendly sales rep and returned some equipment, while my daughter looked around. While waiting for my receipt, I was impressed with the hands-on demonstrations of customers to learning how to get the most out of their TV, high-speed internet, Xfinity Mobile, Xfinity Voice and connected home solutions.

We use the Xfinity Stream app to watch live TV, stream OnDemand content, record TV shows, and to download movies while on-the-go.
