Loss of FF feature on Xfinity TV playback

Loss of FF feature on Xfinity TV playback

What's up with fast forward feature on Xfinity TV?   We used to be able to fast forward shows on FX and CBS but within the last week, it seems that we are unable to do so.  The reason we catch up with our shows on Xfinity is because of all the commercials and that is why we ff through them.


Anyone else out there notice this change?  What's Comcast up to now?  Defeats the whole purpose of the ff feature...

the networks disable the ff feature so you will watch the commercials.    This is why we get a dvr so we dont have to watch commercials.

Kinda figured that.  Heaven forbid that we get to watch a favorite show and not have to have the commercials play.  I think we may be heading in the direction of a DVR if this continues.  

Thanks for your reply.
