Part 2. How to Play Offline Music from Spotify on Xfinity TV
Undoubtedly, you can follow the above steps to get Spotify on Xfinity TV directly. But you can make it only online because Spotify doesn’t provide its offline service to Xfinity.

Most importantly, it will keep metadata information of each song to help you find them easily.
