Xfinity Stream

What happen to the TV go option on the website, you know, where there was no commericals and we could go back and forth on the episode. Now all that is available is on demand with dumb commericals and no option to skip around the episode. Is this a permanent thing? I had to go and buy dumb Hulu just watch shows with no commerical and Hulu doesn't even have all the shows Xfinity has!? SO WHAT IS GOING ON?? I'd like to know, I've tried looking it up but I can't find any information? Could someone tell me what happen to it?

You can go into Settings (looks like a gear icon) and click "Playback Preferences" then turn off "Play Best Available".

 

With this feature turned on, we bias towards HD over SD, Cloud DVR over On Demand, and In-home over TV Go (depending on your location at the time of playback).  Note that "TV Go" versions count against any data usage plans that may be in effect in your market.  The non-TV Go version does not (it is delivered over Comcast's managed network much like the On Demand to your television).

 

The in-home On Demand is often restricted from Fast Foward during the first 3 days after a show airs (just like on the set-top box) which sound like what you were experiencing.
