What's New in Version 2.4.2
Let me start out by saying that for this app to work you must pay for the service through Comcast/Xfinity that allows live streaming and other features available in the app. I repeat, you are PAYING for this service, it is not free. That being said this is by far one of the worst apps I have ever had the absolute displeasure of downloading. Before I made the choice to upgrade my service and download this app I did some research on it, and while some things offered by this app seemed decent, I was mostly attracted by the option to watch "any" network live on my iPhone when I was away from my tv at home. This option to watch tv live doesn't work far more than it does work. When trying to do so I have encountered countless error messages, including the most common blue screen stating "this program is currently unavailable", for absolutely no reason at all. After giving it numerous chances on many separate networks, this app has proven to be absolutely terrible. Do not under any circumstances waste your time and money on this app. I couldn't be more disappointed and irritated with Comcast/Xfinity for offering such a worthless app.
TV to Go
I love using this app when I travel which is a lot. I like the fact that I can watch a movie on my hotel and I don't have to buy one from the hotel I just watch it on my iPad. A lot of people have issues with the app crashing or pausing, luckily I've yet to experience those issues. I also have Verizon which allows me to use my data plan when I'm not near a wifi which actually works better since their LTE is a lot faster. Here's my main two big issues with this app... One it only has around 35 channels why???? Can't it not mirror what I'm paying for at home? It should be simple to do since you have to have a Comcast account when you sign in....get this fixed Comcast!!! Two why can you not use AirPlay or other devices to mirror what's on your tablet to your TV??? That way I could bring my appletv with me on the road and watch everything I want at hotels with poor channel selections. Fix both of these problems then I think the app is 5 stars.
App is buggy, crashes a lot and/or freezes up. When it freezes it can be a complete halt or maybe the sound continues and the picture stays put. The commercials are so obnoxiously loud that it has put me off. This one thing would earn zero stars from me. Usually play it while I cook, etc., and can't always shut the volume down and then bump it back up. It is horrible, especially if someone else is nearby. That said, there are a lot of commercials...snooze. If it locks up on a commercial (it likes to do so in between adverts), guess what?!?, bonus, you get to watch them again. Sometimes you pull up a TV series and a random episode in the list is missing, i.e. episodes 5-12 are available, except number 8. Very frustrating. Why aren't all the episodes available, if we are catching up or trying a new series out? Where are 1-4? And 8? Will have to wait for those shows to hit Netflix, I guess.
