What's New in Version 2.4.2
Buggy and not all you want it to be
I travel every week for work and my goal with this app is two fold: I want to be able to download shows to watch on the plane (because streaming is blocked), and I want to be able to watch all of the shows I could watch at home once I'm at the hotel (because hotels offer crappy channel options).
Downloading works well but occasionally crashes the app either while downloading or during playback. This is not a big deal and recovery is relatively quick. There is another bug in the app that's quite annoying - it says that you can have 10 shows downloaded at a time but it really only lets you download 8. On a coast to coast flight, I can watch 8 30-minute shows and still have lots of travel time to fill. C'mon Comcast this is an easy bug to fix. Also why the limit of 10 in the first place? Is this just some random number you picked and if so please keep us million milers in mind when you set such limits.
As for watching the shows that I pay for via my subscription like I can at home, I have yet to be able to do this as I was hoping. There are only "some" channels that support live streaming and none of them ever seem to be what I want to watch. I don't understand why this is so limited, but as far as I'm concerned it's useless in its current format. I'm still stuck watching whatever crap is offered in my hotel.
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.
