I like this app a lot, and Comcast is starting to really impress me with the additional features available with X1. But I think we can all agree, if you are willing to put Netflix on your cable box, then it is also time to allow this app to stream to Chromecast... Let's make it happen in 2017 👍
I have a cablecard for my television. I do want to use ON Demand services to watch shows that I miss and enjoy them at home. Unfortunately, the app doesn't have casting features but what's much worse is playback is disabled if you cast your screen. There are no DRM arguments that can't be easily countered. Xfinity has been doing better but here's a case where they still need to improve the customer experience.
Never understood the numerous flack Comcast gets until a recent update of this app. Blocks both Chromecast and mini HDMI. How exactly am I pirating if I am mirroring what's on my small screen onto a bigger one? Do you know who this BS affects? Paying customers. Do you know who all this doesn't affect? The pirates you are doing all this sh** for! And ANYWHERE? Really?
Used to be able to stream a rerun off my phone and onto my bedroom TV with my chrome cast. But nasty old xfinity took that away. Anything to make an extra lousy buck. Like they don't already get enough. If they weren't the only provider in my area, I'd go with anyone else. The prices are INSANE!
Just horrible, wish i could give it no stars. Whether its live tv or off the DVR it rarely plays the channel. Instead it freezes while openning and you have to close and reopen it at least a dozen times and it might have a small chance to work. Comcast used to be such a good company.
First I switched from Dish, Rep lied and said I could watch everything except local channels from this app. Can't watch any games, "says in home only", so the app and comcast is useless to me. The only reason I'm keeping Comcast is because of my wife. There are networks on Comcast that we didn't have on Dish. So for all the sports junkies like me, what a big let down. At least the Dish app worked, didn't state you had to be at home like this Comcast app to watch local channels. What a joke.
- Wondering how long your downloads will last? You can now see how much viewing time you have left on your downloads, so you can prioritize what to watch.
- Common Sense Media ratings are now displayed throughout the app to help you make more informed viewing choices.
- We're now selecting the best option to watch a channel or program: HD if available, TV Go content when you're not home, and so on. If you miss the list of Watch Options we used to show, you can disable this feature in Settings.
