Like other users have said commercials are three minutes long and are very repedative. Wouldn't be so bad if you could browse internet while they're playing, but that's more Apple's fault I suppose. App itself is really nice though it doesn't seem to have shows from the CW network (only one I've noticed so far).
Love the app great work, keep at it very entertaining.
Don't get wrong I can accept the commercials for what this app does / offers. However, every time the feed stalls or the video has to be restarted it insists on replaying the last commercial segment!!! Live feed is a nice add, but 70% sport + news, repetitious pac12 sport at that! There's more to the world than that!
Definitely worth downloading. I love it. But it is far from perfect. Crashes, sticks, too any commercials, and I can not access all my favorite shows. Keep working on it. Great addition to xfinity services.
This Xfinity app with the access to ON demand is awesome! I can catch up on shows at work, and also watch series that I was not able to watch during the regular season. happy!
The number of live shows on major tv networks is limited, but for what it offers, I think the app is a great complement to cable.
I use it regularly to catch up on TV episodes I missed or a movie.
Nice app only con would be the streaming sometimes hangs up and stops but overall good app!
This app is all it is cracked up to be and more. I love the download options. Works well for my non data enabled iPad. Can download movies for my son to watch in the car and not need to worry about wifi etc. Also great to see the live TV capability. I would love it if I was able to mirror to Apple TV, but overall it is a great app.
This is a great app, if just 2 see my favorite show, The Walking Dead.
Streaming is good, quality is good. It didn't kill my dog.
When connecting thru verizon I have commercials eating up my data allowance. When I connect thru other servers no commercials. I don't have access to whats on my on demand.
Amazing app — does freeze every once and a while, but all in all very good. Definitely needs to work on Apple TV though. Hoping a deal will be struck eventually to let that happen. That is my only major complaint.
This app is awesome I use it all the time!i suggest it to anyone who can get it because you can watch missed episodes and catch up on things like the walking dead... So get it
Great app. Works great
Has more content than On Demand Cable version. Works great w wi-fi.
Awesome app which allows you to really see shows live or on demand. Two thumbs up.
I can't find a dang thing wrong with this app. Works flawlessly. HD.
Absolutely love it.
I will say that I like it most because I can see shows at work during lunch that I couldn't get to before. I did have Verizon, and although Verizon's app was better, this one works well, also. Still needs some shaping up, but overall, a great lil app for your iPad and I like that I can access it at work on my PC as well.
There are no local channels, only old shows previously aired.
No point if it requires wifi to steam:(
If I could give 0 stars I would. Horrible experience with hotel wifi. Show keeps stopping. Review app even froze.
Worse than TV - full of commercials and you can't change the channel and come back.
Play back crashes frequently, and commercials are repeated upon returning. Commercial blocks themselves are quite long. In about 20 minutes of viewing, had to sit through more than 10 minutes of ads. Bad experience. I gave up.
I used to love it since I don't have a tv in my room. But now it says my time thing was limited but now I can't log back in and I can on other apps.
WHY is it comcast's business whether I'm on Wi-Fi?? I pay a lot for my data plan, and it is really irritating for some crap company like Comcast--not even my cell phone carrier-- to tell me what I can and can't do with my phone. It's none of your concern so remove the restriction.
What kills this app is way it behaves if there is any sort of connection issue. When you begin again it doesn't pick up from where the error occurred without forcing you to watch the same commercials again. If they would alter it so that, if you restart the episode within a few minutes of the error it would skip the commercials, it would save a lot pain.
You cannot actually watch the Olympics with this app or a combination of this app and the NBC app. It's a very limited list of channels you can stream and NBC is not one of them.
at best. The screen won't readjust if you rotate your phone. Very choppy playback even over 50 Mbit connection. Only the live stuff works. Can't watch TV shows but I do receive an error message. There is still some work to be done.
4 min of ads 5x during a show is too much when tucked in bed in my jam jams. It only works on the tv because I can go to the fridge to grab a beer.
I can watch for about 3 minutes until the app closes and crashes..disappointing and frustrating to say the least
The video pauses every 6 seconds, and then takes over 10 minutes for it to start again, only to pause again after another few seconds.
Can't upgrade to latest version on iPad, isn't compatible. Being told have buy new iPad since Apple doesn't offer/sell a hardware upgrade. Why didn't Comcast do update for all iPad users?
Please upgrade the live tv streaming. Can't even get the local news. Need to steal a page from Optimum's book. Their live streaming is amazing on their app. Should be able to watch ALL shows that are available on my tv while I'm home on my network.
Slow download, freezes. Search function is next to worthless. Plus they put in commercials in the middle of scenes instead of at the obvious break point.
Mine keeps saying their I'd a error code something and won't let me watch any of the movies
App would be great IF it worked. EVERY show I try to download says "interrupted" and will not download.
This is pathetic. Most of the channels won't load. Those that do take 30 to 45 minutes. This is typical poor quality Xfinity stuff. Avoid the headaches and bypass this app.
Still does not support AirPlay to Apple TV...fail.
So first movie I click on is "now you see me" what comes on is "pure country 2 the gift" which doesn't even come up in a search. Secondly 6 ads in a row? Could be better
Thought I would try the app again after a year. Still full of lengthy commercials. Back to Netflix. See you in a year Xtra-commercialfinity.
I love it, and the live streaming service can't beat it
Crashes too often. Movie downloading doesn't work.
Great app works better than Netflix I love it
Awesome but sometimes the wrong thing plays. For example..now you see me is really some stupid country movie.
This has one of the most useless search functions I have ever used. You also have to scroll completely to the bottom of over 2,000 movies to find the total number of movies. There is also NO sort function of any kind. I would think Comcast with their resources could develop a better app. On the positive side if you do find a movie you want to watch it does play it well and if you close the app you can resume where you left off.
I know this is a first world problem and there are more complexed and other concerns in the world but why aren't shows updated on the app like they are updated on the website. After the show airs I have no problem waiting till the next day to view but on the app it doesn't update the current show. WHY????This is very frustrating as I travel a lot and like to watch shows on my ipad. Can someone please update the shows? I wonder if they really read these comments?
Helps me keep up-to-date with TV shows and movies. Love that I can watch from anywhere at anytime.
I love this I can watch anything in this app
Good content at times but very annoying to watch with the constant glitching and freezing. Couple that with the commercials and it becomes to tedious to watch. You can't always tell if the app is paused for a commercial or frozen again. Also, the volume can vary significantly. The desired program is hard to hear but the commercials come in like a megaphone. Funny how that works only one way......
One improvement I suggest is an indicator in some form that you've watched a downloaded video.
Too many commercials for too little content. I suspect the app can't tell that I just watched the same two commercials. C'mon Comcast get with it. As if you aren't robbing all of us already. The least you can do is have a decent app available.
No apple AirPlay support. Lame!!!
I like to watch shows on this app but now I have to sit through 3 minutes of commercials. If they took the commercials off it would make the app MUCH more pleasant.
Where's the hub network. My daughter can't watch he favorite show on the go. I always have to give up my iPhone to let her watch here show all day. And further more, I want it for my sons, too. Please just add the hub network so my daughter can watch her shows on here iPad and not bother me. I want it in the next update to help me out. If this won't add the hub network, then I will cancel my xfinity account.
Crashes a lot... Can rarely make it through a movie without errors.
Needs more selection for live tv.
The ability to download content from HBO, which the HBO GO app doesn't even offer, is worthwhile. Hopefully future versions will integrate with Streampix and the xfinity website - seems there is different content available across all three platforms..
I can't watch any videos because it says error something about video team but its goood they just need to let the videos play
This is a great app.well deserved 4 stars, I don't have any complaints about it,except for me to rate it the 5stars,sometimes it has trouble playing next day shows and continuously has an error comment, it should have a report error button so they could fix it right away,,I mean in the end we ARE paying for the cable.also it would also take the fifth star if it would keep refreshing the movies and maybe add more recent vids..but other than that I love the app and live streaming is fast,,but it should have more live stream channels available.over all I love the app!!
Can't stop pixelation on Verizon Fios in the San Fernando Valley? Watching Xfinity? Why am I paying $90 a month for this lame service?
I know you have to download this app like ever other App. But you are being harsh. I mean you are just hating because you cant find you tv show like spongebob young and restless and all that other stuff you like to watch. Look tv is not all you need. For example , Internet you need that to research and a family. Is tv the only thing that is important, NO. And that is it
Nice app. Decent functionality. Good to have another option for movies and catching up on my favorite shows while traveling. However, the commercials are a big negative - no better than watching a first-run broadcast. Why no commercials watching re-runs with Xfinity On-Demand then show them here?? Netflix is still my #1 choice, by far.
Glad they made this app, but they really need a low bandwidth option... Including audio only. It cuts out way much.
Very much like getting the movies I like right on my iPad...now if I could get them by Airplay to my TV...
Piss poor. This is not going to get me to send you an extra $10 each month. It just makes me despise you even more. Once comcast goes out of business I will happily be one of the first ones to pee on the ashes.
U can watch most if the shows that u might have missed on tv and catch up on it. This is the best app ever. I would recommend it
Directv and fios do not require wifi
It's the best thing since sliced bread!!!
This used to be a great app. But since its last "upgrade", it closes out before the episode has finished. " Do I want to watch the next episode?" No thanks. I haven't finished watching this one!!!
It is perfect for watching your favorite movies and tv show. It is absolutely great!
I like it,it always works
Does not support airplay. Like to watch on tv but it doesn't let me. Hbo app and others allow it which is powered by my xfinity account. I don't get it.
Video will sometime freeze, also sometime stop altogether and send a message that they are working on fixing issue. Would like to see more shows available to download so the can be viewed when not on wi-fi.
please solve the live channel
The system will not let you download more than 2 movies even when you clear your viewing history.
I think this app is amazing its ez to use and fun to watch,it is also very clear for the shows or movies
Dear comcast: I pay a HUGE monthly bill to you to enjoy cable. Is it too much to ask that I have mobile access to the same shows? The lack of content available on this app makes me want to run screaming to another provider. Shame on you, comcast!
I love the content, but the player freezes constantly! I often find myself giving up and watching some old movie on Netflix because this app just WON'T WORK!! PLEASE FIX!!! It takes two or three attempts to load a movie.... Also....fix the purchased movie app, OR provide better instruction! Every time I try signing into it, I get a message saying the app "encountered unexpected input" and it boots me out
There are times when the picture gets really fuzzy or a movie just wont play but for the most part its pretty good.
Simple, easy to use app. I travel frequently for work so I especially appreciate the download feature when in the air. I've saved a lot of money by not renting movies for flights. Occasional errors, but that is technology, nothing works perfectly. The live channels are great too, please add more!
I think this is a really great addition to xfinity.'s service. Is it PERFECT? No. Is it worth downloading? ABSOLUTELY. The feature that allows you to download select movies and tv shows to your device is fantastic (my brother's in the hospital getting chemo, so now he can load his iPad with some movies/tv shows to take his mind off being sick while he's in the hospital). Even Netflix doesn't give you this option. Really haven't had any problems with the app. Wish there were more channels available live. Lots of sports channels, but I don't care for sports. Anyways, I'm honestly impressed. Xfinity is obviously taking people that prefer to watch content on a device seriously.
No airplay support!!!! This needs to be added ASAP.
Versatile app. Love watching old shows on y iPad with it. New shows have WAY too many commercials--sometimes 3-4 minutes at a time. You can do that on TV, but not in an app.
Great app. I rarely gave issues where it's freezing or anything like that. The live tv portion is AWESOME!
I remember when I barely opened this app because of the poor playback, constant crashes, etc. The selection was always better than Netflix, but the app was really temperamental. The recent updates have given more selection in customizing playback speed, captions are easier to work, and it seems more user friendly in general. commercial ads have increased but they've also increased on the PC streaming website and on TV in general. Its still better than missing your favorite shows in general.
Best app ever
Wish it was compatible with the chromecast device then ofcourse it'll be 100 for me ...
Bugs, stops often with an application error, no live network TV. Falls really short from Anyplay app.
Can you please make the Animal Planet Network to the live streaming. Thank you
I think we should get the same shows on both the tv and phone app. As it is we get lots more options for shows and such on the app and online catalog than we do on the tv on demand and stream pix We should be able to have all shows and movies on all devices not a few here a few there and hardly any on tv. Do us a favor and consolidate all choice to be seen on all devices
Bad App! It rarely will stream the things I want to watch. It has "playback errors" all of the time. I works maybe 25% of the time. Horrible app.
I keep logging into bookmarked shows that I've seen several episodes of already, and you keep changing if I have to have an upgraded service or not. I'll go back to Netflix.
I use it on my iPad and find it works great and offers lots of options.
Primary use for kids programming.
I love this app it comes in handy, but when I'm watching it sometimes it glitches and cuts out certain parts. Please fix. Other wise that that it's a great app.
As this is a Comcast product, it's as awful as we've come to expect. Buggy, poor quality and utterly useless. It's everything you'd expect from a company that has zero market competition.
I want Comedy Central on this app!!
