Sigh - you took away record. 1/5
You had one job for me. This was it.
What happened to the record option? 1/5
You used to be able to record programs right from the app. But now if I’m away from home and I forget a program or sporting event is on I have to hope someone is home to set the recording. It’s bad enough that you say you can watch anywhere, but what they don’t tell you is it’s only a few networks. I think if your phone is tied to your account then you should be able to watch all your channels on that phone at least. AND PLEASE BRING BACK THE RECORD BUTTON!!! Thanks
They took away the record option 1/5
Why did you take away the ability to record?
Constantly freezes on my iPad
Fix the recorded programs playback problem 1/5
When you watch your recorded programs on a device you can’t make it 30 seconds without it pausing and buffering.It Also constantly buffers so it drains your battery!Not to mention when you try to go back and watch a show you find it has reset and you need to start from the beginning.This app does not do what it claims!Fix this...Since the update now I can’t watch most shows because it says I need a subscription that I already have.Wow you made a horrid app worse!!!!!......and the new updates date made the playback of recorded shows on a device impossible way to go!!!!!!
Getting worse over time 1/5
Too many restrictions
Recently, the “Schedule” feature on my Xfinity Stream app became disabled. I’m currently unable to see which shows are in my DVR schedule. I heavily rely upon this feature. Please fix it!
Got so much worse 1/5
By Java McCoffee
All I say it's for a lot worse. For what we have to pay for this service and I mean overpriced service and have a nerve to even take away the option to record on a portable deice I.e mobile phone, tablet etc.. Can't wait for FiOS to come to my Street.
No record from away? 1/5
By Just A Word Or Two
And support says - oh look for it on demand?? How ridiculous! The BEST feature is gone. No editing a recording either. What good is this app anymore?
Mediocre at Best. 2/5
The download function never works well. Constantly gets stuck, skips, or missing sound. Especially at times when you fast forward. No Chromecast support also. Smh.
For a service that costs nearly $2000 per year this is the most insulting app you could conceive.
The app offers the ability to reset your gateway if internet is not working, however if internet is not working you can’t connect to the app. What is the point of that?
If you connect through your wireless provider and internet is down you can’t use any of the features of the app. Again, no point.
Xfinity is horrible in so many ways and too expensive. Can’t they do anything right?
Sports stream awesome, clear pic. Great for binge watching. Love it!!!
No record option??? 1/5
One of the best things I loved about this app (yes loved...past tense) was he fact that I could record or set a recording away from home. Now I don’t see the benefit in even having the app installed anymore. You can’t watch your shows (only a few stations are available). Just taking up space I could use for another app.
Bring back the record option!!!!!
Restrictions make it useless to me 1/5
What is the point of having a streaming app that doesn’t let me watch content I AM PAYING FOR outside of my home? Ridiculous anti-competitive behavior from a cable monopoly that fought against net neutrality.
Crap like this is why you guys will eventually be killed by Hulu, Netflix, etc. Good riddance, that day can’t come soon enough for me.
I can’t record from anywhere
1/2 if it’s usefulness is now gone.... 1/5
Where did the record option go????
Constant buffering issue 2/5
By Bug Eh
My main purpose in downloading this app is to watch recorded shows on iPad at night, so I don’t bother husband with shows he hates. None of the shows play back at even 50% reliability. Within seconds of beginning playback, buffering problems begin, and within a couple of minutes, playback completely ceases. I’ve tried rebooting, changing positions etc to no avail. This is not a problem with Live tv streaming usually, and I NEVER have problems with Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Video, at the same time of day or location.
I am also disappointed at the limited availability to watch tv off my home network. I’m paying for this access so why can’t Comcast/Xfinity figure out how to allow their paying customers access while preventing use by non authorized people.
We’ve cut the cable cord before for three years and only renewed our cable dependence when we moved back to our hometown. This app’s features were a big selling point because of travel but as it turns out it’s useless. The killer for me tho is that I cannot enjoy recorded shows at all thru the app. Fix the app before we cut the cord again.
Can’t record from anywhere 2/5
So aggravated that I can’t record from anywhere. When I remember I need to record something it stinks because they took that option away
Why would you take away the record button? Even if just to set shows to watch for later. This was one of, if not the most important features of the app. Get it together please.
They just want more money. 2/5
You pay a enormous amount for their service. But they still want more money so they put ads in the OnDemand movies. They worst problem with the ads is they are incredibly loud compared to the movie. Painfully loud if you are wearing headphones. I have to rapidly yank my headphones out. So in short, Comcast will physically hurt you and possibly cause permanent hearing damage. Why 2 stars? Well it works some of the time. I can steam HD Netflix, Amazon Time, and 1080P Youtube. So why do I keep getting a network error for the most expensive service I pay for?
Recording Option 1/5
I can’t set a recording from the app like are you stew can this be fixed
Apple Watch 1/5
By Allege nicknamesaretaken
How long is it going to take to get the Apple Watch app to actually do something???? Don’t advertise it, or even have it, if it does nothing?!? Nobody I know reports that it works and there have been countless reviews for MONTHS saying it doesn’t work. Does anybody from Comcast read the reviews? BTW... since you can’t actually watch most shows out of the home the best feature was being able to record when you were away. Can’t do that now either. App has become next to useless.
Record options are gone 2/5
Really disappointed the ability to set DVR recordings through the app is gone. That was the only reason I used the app. Even worse, finding it’s gone when you need it most. Bring it back Comcast!
Bring back record capabilities 3/5
Please update this app ASAP to bring back recording capabilities. I’m often traveling for work and would like to be able to add shows to my dvr for when I return. It is a pain to have to get on a computer and go through my account in order to add a recording.
tilting the screen 1/5
By Tonya Pinterest Addict
when i hold my phone sideways the movie stays upright no matter what i do
So slow 1/5
Download is wicked slow. I wanna watch Ellen. Go patriots!!
Streaming downloads from dvr 1/5
I have a lot of shows that I downloaded to my DVR so that they would be available when I travel. Well after so many days the DVR recordings don’t show up on the app but they are still on the DVR. Very frustrating.
Also where can I find tv shows that I can download directly to my iPad and then watch outside the home. All the shows I see can’t be downloaded as they only have the “watch” option available
Again we pay an arm and a leg with xfinity you would think we would get more value for their service!!!!
Can’t cast to TV and no Apple TV app 1/5
This two features I mention are must. They are present on all concurrent apps like Directv Now, YouTube TV, Sling and Hulu. I’m personally testing Directv Now and really thinking on switching...
I like this app, I really do... 3/5
But what would be great, would be if this would come to Apple TV. I think xfinity is really missing out not being on Apple TV. Or at the very least make it where you can cast to you Apple TV. The iPhone app itself is good though, I really don’t have any complaints there.
Expecting Great Things 4/5
Just downloaded this app not too long ago so we could watch the Football games and the Winter Olympics when not able to sit in front of the TV. I’m still learning how to maneuver through the possibilities, so I’ll let you know if I can do everything that this app says I can.
Took away the "add recording" option 1/5
Every now and then, I think of something I want to record and I'm not sitting in front of my TV. I used to use this app to set the show for recording. Now it appears I can't do that. That's upsetting 😩
Was good now a waste 1/5
This app lost all its good features. Can no longer set a show to record from app. It’s space on my phone I can find much better use for
NO MORE RECORDING OPTION 1/5
By A fine woman
Once you took away the recording option… Or you could record reschedule recording from your iPhone, tablet,… Anywhere and anytime… You took away one of the major features of Xfinity. It was really nice to be able to Schedule recording if I was at my sisters house or at work or if somebody would happen to mention a great program… I could just go on my iPhone look it up and schedule recording. Not without that feature this really isn’t worth anything.
Very good app until they took away the recording ability. 2/5
Was a very good, you could record programs from outside home. But they have taken it away.
Can’t sign in 1/5
I wouldn’t know how this app works because i can’t get it to recognize my username and password. Even using the reset password function sends me into a can’t recognize do loop.
Needs Apple TV app & AirPlay Support! 1/5
Needs Apple TV app & AirPlay Support!
Screen fit 3/5
When is it going to fit the full screen on my iPhone X???
Recording from the app 3/5
I’ve noticed since I’ve done the update on the app I can no longer record tv shows from the app!!! Can this feature be re-added to the app so if I’m not home I can record shows that I’ll miss?
Can’t record?? 2/5
Wth. Can’t record anymore from the app to the dvr?!?! Low rating just because of that. Will update if they add that feature back.
Why am I unable to set recordings thru the app on my devices?!?!?!?!!??? 1/5
Why would you guys remove the BEST feature that allows customers to schedule recordings from their device?!?!? I might as well just invest in HULU and watch the next day OR just get DIRECTV since you can set recordings with them while out of town away from home. I used to be able to set a recording then watch on my device whilst out of town. It's so inconvenient that you no longer have that feature or capability, what happened Xfinity?!?
day of the week shows 2/5
so its now friday and you still have not updated wednesday or thursday tv shows to view! i didnt realize it was so hard to get this fixed considering how much you charge for your services! i want a refund for the past 2 days since im not getting the service i paid for!
By Steve French 13
The reliability is spotty at best.
The service is TRASH!!!! We were given a card from a rep at our building and said that he would help us whenever we needed... yeah right! We had tried to contact him over 7 times in 3 months only to never be contacted back...
To top is all we were LIED to by the customer support staff member Dan letting us know that a early termination fee will be credited to our last bill(since we didn’t have a contract). We didn’t have a contract because we told them we didn’t want their service anymore after they expired the first time. They begged us to stay offering more stuff and lower prices every time we said no. We finally said ok that we were only going to be in that building for another 6 months. Now they are sticking us with a $200 fee!!!!!
Trash trash trash! Stay away!
App Useless Without DVR Control 1/5
The title says it all... 0 stars if I could.
What happened to the record option? 1/5
I used to be able to record shows from the app, but now it’s gone. Please bring that back! I’ve missed it multiple times already. Missing the game bc I forgot to record it from home. :-(
Record Function 1/5
BRING BACK THE RECORD OPTION!!!
Record option 1/5
Why was the record option removed? If I’m away from home I am unable to record shows that I may miss while I’m out.
Record Option Gone! I’m deleting this app 1/5
Bring back the record option. It was the best option you had. Bull Crap!!
Can’t remotely schedule recording 2/5
This was great functionality that no longer exists. Horrible because we’ll be away from home and realize we forgot to set a recording. So now we’re stuck.
Nothing will play 1/5
I’ve had issues for 3 days now with my shows not playing on my iPhone 7plus. It keeps trying to restart over and over again
Boo DVR options 1/5
Took away DVR options to record shows among many others. Terrible app now. Hello Direct TV.
