10/26 Update Favorites Filter is Back! The new interface and functionalities are fantastic! A big improvement over the previous version. Update: Favorites filter is back and matches your X1 favorites, and changes can be made on both. Also, I can now log in on my android phone. Nice job on the update!
Much better after 10/27 update Favorites is back which is very good. Speed seems decent. Only issues I have with it now is the huge font that the user can't change and only being able to look at 30 minutes of the schedule at a time. Fix those two and I am at 5 stars.
Worth the wait for Favorite filter A few weeks ago I panned this app update for dropping the Favorite Channels/filter. (It was still operating on the iOS version) I wrote Xfinity to complain and was told thie Android version would be update again later this month. It was, Favorites is back, and all is well, This app certainly is better than any of the physical remotes. Thank you!
Loss of favorites makes app almost useless Previous version of app where channels could be favorited was far more useful. The "Favorite" feature should be added back in. Revision 2016-10-26: Favorites are back and app seems to be working fine for me. Will continue testing. Revised rating from 2 stars to 4 stars.
Still a piece of garbage The Oct 26 update for android still isn't useful. My favorites aren't downloaded from my DVR as advertised (and like they used to be), can only see 30 minutes of programming at a time, doesn't show scheduled recordings, only some of my current recordings show up in the list... shall I continue? I fail to understand how a corporation as large and as rich as Comcast can continue to put out such garbage software.
Update 10/26/16: Update fixes a few issues. Favorites are now supported (for X1: common with actual cable box, for non-X1: you can set them in the app, and all devices using the app share that setting.) No longer resets to current time after viewing info on a future program. I bumped the review up to 2 stars. Original review: Newest version is total junk. Very slow to get information as everything is now accessed online (data charges!!!) instead of downloading a database. Trying to select a program often gives an error. Used to display 1 hour at a time, now only displays 1/2 hour. No landscape mode support. If I'm looking at a future time show, and get info, when I go back, it resets to the current time!!! And with the loss of setting favorites, it takes forever to scroll up and down.
We just released a revamped TV Remote, and now we're back with more.
* Favorite Channels! If you have favorites on X1, you'll see them in the app when you filter TV Listings by Favorites. If you don't have X1, your favorites are shared across mobile devices. Go to Settings > Favorite Channels to choose.
* The return of Kids, Sports, & Movies filters! You can find them - and combine them - with the HD, SAP, and CC in the Filter menu.
* Many bug fixes.
Remote control for your TV, set-top box, DVD, Apple, etc. and TV guide listings!
