Yet our bills are continually rising. You're moving backwards, not forward to make streaming a better experience! That very useful function is now gone. So far, the changes I've noticed have all been for the worse. Tried to watch a sports match through the web site and it made me download the app. Told everyone to get it specifically for that option. Now they have slowly discontinued the things that made the app cool. To compare, the latest iPhone version of the Stream app works without any Network issue.
Now all you get is the last 8 or so channels in history. Set up the Chromecast stick for your WiFi and get started. Abc recordings get cut off! We have three iPhones and iPad in our household and the Xfinity app behave the same way with everything. I was talked into your programming by a slick salesperson. Canceling xfinity as soon as I get home.
Starting to get very annoying to use. You can't schedule recordings remotely. What happened to the record option? If this issue is not rectified quickly, I may have no choice but to drop Comcast. Nothing but thumbs up from me. Why on earth would you need to get rid of that feature? My wife and I work all day and when we get home we use our tablets more then the tv. Sure, the may have a few more apps, but there are plenty of great options for non-gaming entertainment on Sony's popular console, and all of the major apps are available.
This is an issue that started recently, used to work fine. If I was away from home and forgot or wanted to record something; it could be done. It works well for me! So I called in and Comcast rep had me restarting my router and doing unnecessary troubleshooting like telling me i have two accounts with one user name and he would delete the account. Twitch is great for both the streaming voyeur and superstar alike. All other features like streaming channels work fine.
Since last update it freezes every several seconds. When you try to watch something after pausing you may get an error message. This could be a cool app. The iPhone app is buggy. I have tried this app several different times hoping they would fix this problem. This has happened on countless shows on multiple channels. News, reviews, previews, rumors, screenshots, videos and more! I was supposed to receive a call back from Comcast but never did.
This is happening on my fathers iPad too! If the app is available directly on the Amazon App store, then you can install them easily by the direct method. I just think that for what we pay to xfinity. We pay for the service and when we travel we take a chromecast with us. Every shows starts with closed captioning on, and I turn it off. All other tv apps Netflix, Hulu, etc have the smart cast option. Not being able to record away from Home is a problem. Pull up your socks xfinity team - your testing and app Dev literally does not have any standards to talk of! Your updates took away great feature.
If only charter was in our area, never had any problems with that company. At least it used to. Ironically they just put out an update that says they fixed the issues, but nothing changed. Reboot iPad to no avail. What is Comcast doing to replace this feature?.
I get that the record feature is gone- Real bummer. Now I have no use for this app. I was still denied access to the program. Since last update it freezes every several seconds. Streaming cuts in and out, and has to reload every few min. Remember the average user has a 15 second attention span and we need apps to function with that in mind.
Thank You for reading this post. Some videos are not playing back on the app. If I could I would give it 0 stars. When it comes to streaming apps is like Corn Flakes: it's the original and the best. Why does the app have no tools to set the language? Told everyone to get it specifically for that option.
I was on the phone today for well over an hour, talked to eight different people all over the world. It it now un-useable, however, so it is time to cut the cord! Comcast is so fricken expensive and now we get no service! Who watches tv on the go? The option to manage recorded shows and schedules. What does is let you take the digital copies of those films stored on your computer and stream them to almost any device under the sun via the Plex Media Server. Also it no longer shows which ones you viewed already. And, I take issue with the terminology free to me.
