Home networks are the key to any good streaming experience. And these days it's all about mesh networks. Oversimplified, that's moving away from a single wireless router to multiple points spread throughout a home. And today Comcast announced that its xFi Pods are available for purchase.

After that? It's just a matter of plugging things in and setting them up.
