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.
At times content on the dvr does not show up in this app at all (and it is not tied to a licensing issue - some episodes of the exact same show are available, whereas some are randomly not even wks after recording). The deal-breaker is that remote taping of things is no longer available, which is an incredible error. We plan to switch service providers over this...
I have used this app for at least a year now on my cellular Samsung Tab E and it still sucks compared to the previous Comcast Xfinity TV GO app. The app is slow with getting the info of whatever program you are interested in, the 3 dots will drive you nuts when all you are waiting for is the 5 lines of text description of a program. Also it does not allow you to pick the resolution quality of what you are watching, it is always HD quality which is absolute overkill on a 7 inch screen plus it sucks up a tremendous amount of data when streaming. On the old TV GO app you could watch an hour long episode of a show on medium quality for 250 - 350MB, that same show will now suck up at least double that, if not more. Also when streaming a show it will keep on buffering because it cant get the data fast enough even on 4G with 4 bars because its trying to get it in HD quality. The old TV GO app worked flawless. This one is garbage, far below expectations, especially seen of how expensive Comcast - Xfinity is.
Only a few channels available. I wish I could watch ALL of my channels live & have a mobile dvr to record shows like Playstation vue does. I don't like the network restriction & have to be home to watch all my channels. Playstation vue got rid of their mobile restriction. You guys should too. I should have all of my channels available & not have to record them only on a home DVR.
Only partial content on dvr available in the app? Really - android app and roku app same problem - sucks
When will the complete DVR service be brought back? Still can not set recordings from this app. Nonsense and dumb!
