    Update 10/14/17: Somewhat improved, but still a usability stinker. I am experiencing many fewer crashes & that’s a plus. So here are my most annoying lack of usability issues now: 1. It needs to display the selected DVR on every screen with option to change it. 2. Add quick link to Upcoming Shows would help usability. Now a separate search is required, even when the show has been selected in the TV Listings. 3. Quick link to IMBD or Rotten Tomatoes with back button would greatly improve usability. Update Summary: Come on Comcast. You should really demand that the people who write the requirements at least try to use this app first. There would be amazing improvements in usability/feature/function. Update 7/15/17: Why can't I rate this app a minus 5 or at least a fat goose egg? It seems only fair. Record a show when not in front of DVR & it often records it, but not always. And you never have a confirmation in this example that it is set to record. If it works, the movie title, for example, usually does not display for the recorded movie. Does anyone believe having to dig into recordings for the one you want is a good idea? If so, I have some swamp land I am holding just for you. Update 5/13/17: Now Comcast no longer displays HD channels when you search by title. Only shows non-HD & the 1000 range (no 700 or 800 range). Issue: search a show, select upcoming and HD are specifically excluded. Makes it impossible to find times for any HD show. Additionally, app includes the 1000 range channels in your favorites with no way to delete them from favorites. And, oh yea, still crashes over & over. In the bottom 2 of all time worst apps. OMG: Now an annoying Xfinity ad keeps popping up as I look at different times on tv listings. Same modal pops up over & over & over, stopping navigation until I close it. Makes listings unusable. Why can't I rate this app a minus 5? ____________________________________________ Just bad, just plain bad. This is 100% due to sorry developers. And to top it off, despite the odd new and hip icon, this Comcast app continues to be the longest running winner for most software crashes ever. Special award for most crashes of "TV Listings" section in history. Well deserved Comcast.

    My physical xfinity remote broke and Comcast customer service wanted to charge me to have a new one sent out, or drive 30 min (one way) in the rain, then stand in line, just to get a replacement. For what I pay each month I expected better help but shame on me. So now I have to use the xfinity app to navigate my comcast cable. It’s not too bad but has the potential to be much, much better. I finally realized after a few months of use that tapping the microphone icon within the remote app also brings up the arrow navigation and keypad, and that makes my life so much easier. It’s not very intuitive but at least the functionality exists. I would love a way to go to a channel directly from the guide, instead of going to a page description first. Also it is too easy to click/unclick the “favorites” stars on the guide page. Hopefully the app will get better over time. It serves its purpose for me until I dump xfinity for charging too much, frequent outages and providing total crap for customer service.

    I have no major problems with the TV listing UI although it is a bit small and only shows 30 minutes of time in portrait mode. However, the UI for on demand movies is a complete and obvious ploy to maximize revenue for Comcast. I already pay a monthly subscription fee in order to access free movie content on demand but this app provides no way to exclusively browse for titles I have free access to. A simple filter entry of "free to me", which is available in the Xfinity set top box UI, would instantly improve this app and my rating. For even more stars in my rating you could add categories to the OnDemand screen. Comcast’s grouping of movies isn’t helpful at all. Who care about premium networks when I can’t even sort by genre.
