What's New in Version 2.4.1
iPhone 6 & 6plus support. Bug fixes.
TV on the go??
The app is very convenient and comes in handy I'm my off days and when I've missed The Walking Dead.
I would give this app a 5 star rating but seriously what's with the ads????? I can understand that they want/need to make they're money but come on! It took me 2 hours and 15 minutes to watch The Walking Dead! A 53 minute show. Why can't they just show the same exact rerun from the regular time on Sunday?? I don't recommend anyone watch a long TV series. Every time I clicked my home button either to reply to a text or make a phone call. It would start over the ad time again and again even if I was in the middle of the ad!! Each ad is 3-4 mins long so for example if I was 2 mins into the ad and I clicked the home button on my iPhone to reply to a text then went back into the xfinity app it would start over the ads again. And what's really unfair is when ur in the middle of watching the show and you answer a phone call it starts the ads all over again!!! When I started writing this review I initially gave it 3 stars but the more and more I think about it it doubled the regular show time!!! Seriously????!
It's nice to watch the show occasionally between all the ads
The app is poorly written and tends to show too many ads. I'll explain. The moment you start watching a show you might see some ads. Then if after only two seconds of watching you immediately skip ahead in the show you will again endure more ads before you can see the show. Why is this such an annoyance? Because if you have both an iPhone and an iPad and use both devices to watch shows, this app will not sync or remember where you left off from one device to another. If you start watching a show on your iPhone and then decide to continue watching that same show on your iPad, the app doesn't offer you the option to resume watching on your iPad. That's why you need to skip ahead in the show to figure out where you left off. And that's when all the annoying ads appear every five seconds. The app needs to be smart enough to: 1. Remember where you left off across all your devices and 2. Remember that you just watched 2 minutes of ads and not immediate play more ads within 10 seconds just because you skipped ahead.
Ridiculous amount of ads and NO AIRPLAY SUPPORT
IF YOURE UNHAPPY WITH AIRPLAY FUNCTIONALITY NOT WORKING GIVE THIS APP A ONE STAR REVIEW!!!! LET COMCAST KNOW WE WILL NOT ALLOW THEM TO GIMP OUR DEVICES AND SERVICES WE PAY FOR!!!
(Update to my original review- this app supported Airplay for a couple of months, which was fantastic and provided great flexibility for viewing my subscribed content, but then suddenly it was disabled again by Comcast.. So once again I'm giving this app one star until features are restored that us subscribers should be able to use)
The amount of ads that you are forced to watch in this app is absolutely torturous, it wouldn't be so bad, but this is a service I PAY FOR! I realize ads are required, I get that, but when you have a 20 minute show and 15 minutes of ads, that just become unacceptable. My second complaint is Airplay not being supported. I understand that I have a cable box, but it's also nice to have the flexibility to watch MY SUBSCRIBED content on my Apple TV when I'm traveling. I pay for the content, I should be able to use it. You'll receive 5 stars when Airplay is enabled.
