Ability to change/select another channel without backing out to the menu

Ability to change/select another channel without backing out to the menu

The Roku remote is not the greatest design, but the Xfinity Stream App can still be improved. It would be nice to be able to change/select another channel while still watching TV. Just as the DOwn arrow allow sto to select previously watched channels, the app needs the ability to change channels. I propose using the right arrow to popout a side bar from the left side of the screen that will display a list of channels and their logos only, and then use the Up and Down arrows to scroll channels, then the OK button to select and change the current channel. Pressing the Left Arrow while in the menu should escape without changing anything.

 

Additionally, it would be nice to allow users to flag thier favorite channels, then Just like the Right Arrow Above, the Left arrow could popout a side bar form the right side of the screen with just your favorite channels.

Re: Ability to change/select another channel without backing out to the menu

This would be nice. The Time Warner/Spectrum app does exactly this pretty much from day 1. Their app is definately superior to any I have used to date.

Comcasts is probably 2nd to worst I have used... :/

and now it doesnt even work due to some screw up on their end for many days now...
