    Posted this over on Rivals as well.

    Unfortunately Comcast seems to have half-assed it and implemented their usual plan to make things as difficult and circuitous as possible. They are only available via the website, not the Xfinity iPad or Xbox apps (because...why would folks want to watch a game on their actual television). I have a sneaky suspicion that Comcast customers are suffering through this fiasco because Comcast gets to keep all the web-site ad revenue by forcing us to go through their content portal.

    To access the feed you need to go to http://xfinitytv.comcast.net. You should now see the Pac 12 network logo listed in the "Watch Live now on Xfinity TV' section. Unfortunately this is where you get in to the half-assed part of the implementation. When you click on the Pac 12 logo it takes you directly to the National feed. I don't see any method of selecting the regional feeds available via the site navigation. I was able to find the regional feeds but, only through a post on their forums (good job Comcast, its not like most people are going to want to view the regional feeds rather than the national feeds or anything...particularly since the cable companies were the ones pushing the regional model so they could get more money off ad sales). Here are urls for the regional feeds:



    Also, to access the feeds you need to have a browser plug-in for Microsoft Silverlight installed. I ran into an issue when I tried watch the feeds. Comcast's site would tell me I needed the plug-in, but when I attempted to install it in either Chrome or Firefox the installer would give me a message that the plug-in was already there (which is likely since those were my primary browsers). I couldn't get around the issue since the Comcast page kept saying I needed the plug-in and not recognizing that it was there. I got around the issue by opening one of the feed pages in IE which I never use. When I used IE the plug-in successfully installed/updated. Once I got the feed working in IE it started working in my other browsers as well. I'm not sure if it was a Comcast issue, or a Microsoft plug-in/installer issue.

    I live in bumble **** Oregon and charter cable has not gotten the P 12. My parents have comcast (my dad actually works there, no neg rep please) and I used their sign in info and it seems to be working. However, when ever I click on the P12 I just get a commercial for the P12, not any actual broadcasting. Anyone else else?

    I tried, near as I can tell the Xfinity app doesn't support live streaming of any of the channels available on the Xfinity website. Despite the fact that if you try to view the stream from the website on your IPad it points you to a link to download the Xfinity IPad app.

    If you try to validate on Pac-12 now there is a button that says xfinity is coming soon. I am praying this means we will be getting full access to the Pac-12 site soon

    Would someone please rep superD for me again? If there was ever a post needing 2 x rep this is it. This still works like a charm.

    I'm on the cal game too, but the play-by-play just said "some of you will be going to the colorado game" or something to that effect. God I hope so. Or else I'm ****ed. First Row Sports has the colorad link but it only plays the CSU-Tulsa game! ****.
