Review from Francisco Marini
When I first got it months ago the only real issue I had was that, for some channels, it would tell me I had to be on my home network to view them, when I was on my home network. Since then it has gotten progressively worse. More channels now have that same issue, programs won't download from my dvr, and tons of network connectivity errors, when my network is just fine. Don't even try calling them for support, you'll get a different answer every time, and they will all be wrong. Update 12/6/17, so a few updates have come through, and though the number of error messages has dropped the issues have not. Now at least half of my shows will only download between 5-15 minutes of the show, that is 60 or more minutes on my dvr, but acts as if the complete show downloaded to my phone.
Download doesn't work so well anymore. I have to download then return a show multiple times before it finally works. Streaming directly uses way to much of my data. Last year downloading was fast & worked the 1st time. Not the case since about January
Why do I pay so much for my service when it advertises I can watch on the go but pauses every 3 seconds and buffers. I used to be able to watch but now it's horrible. Completely unusable app. Using a note 8 with unlimited data so issue is not on my end. Get your **** together Comcast/Xfinity or whatever you're wanting to be called.
Won't display everything on my DVR. Often won't let me delete something for no apparent reason. Gets hung up on a previous day's DVR content and no matter how many times you restart the app it won't show current content. TERRIBLE APP
I use it to watch live TV when I'm nowhere near a cable box, and it works fine. Lacks Chromecast support (which is a terrible omission). Note: commenters complaining about not being able to schedule recordings should use the complementary Xfinity Remote app.
So I have other apps that automatically connect to my Xfinity account, which is convenient considering I can't remember my email OR password to login- the other apps just automatically connect to Xfinity with the touch of a button... Yet, the ACTUAL Xfinity app doesn't even gave this feature? Absolutely absurd. 1 star, because it won't let me give less. The app is useless if I can't get in.
Has been very glitchy lately. Video won't play for longer than a few seconds before having to load again. Using a strong wifi connection too so I know it isn't the internet.
