That's not the new version. This one is far superior

Right now Comcast TV App Doesn't work on Streaming Devices, but Later this year Samsung Smart TV's and Roku Devices will be able to carry the Comcast TV App.

Only Samsung Smart TV's and Roku Devices will work

Are you from the future? If it does go to $40..what happens if you get the $50 Sling/BB credit?
$10 left to use on something else?

Where are you getting this info from? I checked the typical sources that leak the BB ads early but didn't see anything about this. Not saying you're wrong, it would just help to see a confirmation.

I have a friend who has connections and he has never been wrong when he tells me he is sure. This is for sure but he said he believes it's $10 off all Rokus but wasn't 100% sure on that part. I'll see about getting getting some proof

Does Comcast tv app require that device is conected to the comcast authorized conection?
You can only watch at home?

Or can i borrow someones pass and watch anywhere?

I picked one of these up (full price) a few weeks ago. I'm probably not telling anyone anything you can't read from a professional review somewhere, but here's my experience:

So far, I'm pretty pleased with it. I'm able to connect to Netflix, Hulu, Plex, most of the play anywhere apps from HBO/Cinemax/Showtime, etc. I don't have any stuttering issues via any of those methods, though if I attempt to directly stream any of my locally-owned media (as opposed to streaming through Plex) it isn't up to the challenge.

The user interface allows the user to prioritize the order of the applications displayed, so you aren't forced to keep scrolling through applications you don't use.

I leave the thing plugged into an outlet all the time, so no re-booting is required.

I am a little annoyed about the remote; it seems to lose the connection to the Roku quite often. A simple battery pull fixes it; I haven't tried new batteries to see if those are perhaps the issue. Plus, I only use the device once a day while on my elliptical, so it hasn't become a priority to address (yet).

I've got a pretty large media library, and one of the other little annoyances is it can't display all my movies within the Plex application. It times out, sometimes even when you're only asking for movies beginning with a certain letter. Smaller directories would undoubtedly alleviate this problem, but it would be more of a pain to navigate on any other device.

I'm not using all the functionality, so I don't have any direct expertise in just about anything else.

I bought the new roku stick recently, really good for this price point. wireless only no Ethernet, you can plug into your tv usb to power or use the plug.
