What's New in Version 2.4.6
To many ads and inconvenient seek/rewind/fastfwd
The ads ads in this app are completely ridiculous. They repeat themselves over and over again and are extremely loud so that every time they come on you have to turn them down and then turn the volume back up when the program comes on. Why allow this when it would be easy to normalize the volume?
When you try to skip through the movie you have to watch all the ads they embed throughout the video, again and again. Totally unnecessary and unfair and intrusive and inconvenient in my opinion. This is 2015; it's insulting that Comcast is still playing dumb on this matter in order to shove some more ads in your face. As I'm writing this I am watching the same commercial for American Idol that I have watched at least 20 times today. What a complete waste of time.
Also skipping through the program is pretty much useless in the first place as there is no resolution when you're skipping and often you accidentally skip to the completely wrong place or accidentally end up having to watch the same 4 mins of ads again. Other players like Netflix etc have solved this issue. It's unbelievable to me that Comcast is such a huge successful company and yet they can again be proven so incompetent in giving customers what they want. Then again, it's not that surprising given previous Comcast user experiences.
Awful interface, needs to be fixed.
Tv go review?
As stated by other reviewers, the amount of, & redundancy of ads is very annoying, plus the app has other issues, ... Not being able to hook it up to my tv is another major deterrent also, ... What is the point of that?? And it could be a lot better if the shows were alphabetized, or lined up by network, ... Instead of having to scroll the list forever, or typing it into the search box, ... In addition to other shows, like ABC's marvel's, Agent Carter series, is not even on the list,, nor are any of the premium types of channels, like the World Fishing Network's shows, such as Kayak Bassin' or Know Fishing", these should also be available to your viewing audience, because we are the ones paying your salaries, not the other way around, ...
frustrating, intrusive ads
This app makes accessing my cable content on demand pretty easy. Mostly I'm happy with the quality of the app interface and content accessibility.
However, the frequency, duration, and redundancy of ads is incredibly frustrating. For example, I'm watching a 45 minute episode from a premium TV channel, and my current clock reads 1:05:05 with 6:59 remaining. Why in the world should I be subjected to 25+ minutes of ads for a 45 minute episode? Tremendous waste of my time.
On top of that, it mostly plays the same ads over and over and over. I've seen so many slim jim ads there's no way I'll buy one now. Surely that wasn't the desired effect...plus, getting really sick of having to turn down the volume for the ads. Come on Comcast, normalize the volume.
