Xbox Xfinity 5 minute skipping for shows with FF disabled.

New Poster

Xbox Xfinity 5 minute skipping for shows with FF disabled.

Is there a plan for the Xbox Xfinity app to enable skipping for content that disables fast forwarding?

 

For example, currently using OnDemand through a Comcast STB, even if a show has FF disabled you can still use the page up and down buttons on the remote to jump 5 minutes.  I get that content providers want us to watch the commercials for their shows, and I have no problem with this.  But If you fall asleep or are unable to finish watching something halfway through a show, it would be nice to be able to skip through the parts I already watched from the Xbox.

 

Maybe use the shoulder buttons on the controller to "chapter skip" forward and backwards like you can now when watching a video from the Zune marketplace.

This feature currently does not exist but it is something that we will consider in a future update.
