Do you have the XFINITY TV Player App installed?

 

Are you using a Kindle Fire or Kindle Fire HD?

 

Thanks,

Re: Help setting up my device please!

Joe,

 

My box setup has never been quite right since the app came out. I have four boxes but my iPhone and Ipad apps only recognize two. My last foray at fixing this now years long saga suggested by a rep last night, was to turn off the offending boxes, send a signal, delete my apps(?)  and then wait six hours. Still no luck.

Hello,

  I have the app installed and have no luck getting it to work.

 

I have the kindle fire, the original non hd.

Nacus, did you download the kindle fire app from the amazon store for comcast??    you cannot watch live tv with the app only on demand shows.

Hello,

  I did down load the app and have had no luck with it. So no live tv with xfinity? It is to bad the rep misslead me when I was getting ready to canceal.

 

On a side note what is up with the on demand, seems extremly limited and is just hulu?

Will have to double check what I have, although I downloaded pretty much everything xfinity I could for the device.

in the app you click on play now, that is what you can watch.   you would need to be a subscriber to any pay services though, also anything that is streampix you would have to have streampix to access that.   There is only one app for kindle fire I know of in the amazon store and it is new only a few weeks old.
