Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

New Poster

Re: Where is my WatchList?

I had the full compliment of 150 in my watchlist which I wanted to view when they appeared on premium or broadcast channels. Now the list is gone, my search engine is gone, and my thought that Comcast might be getting better is gone also. Get it together, Comcast!

Good question. I just contacted support about my DVR functionality and they responded "We are having a technical issue. Is there anythingelse I can assist you with?" 

 

I responded "This technical issue was avoidable and you haven't assisted me."

 

Really though. The beta page could have stayed beta until the bugs were worked out. Now you're wasting OUR time Comcast. 


Yes it seems comcast uses their customers as their free test department

Re: Live streaming, On Demand and DVR access via https://tv.xfinity.com/

All - To clear up some questions on this thread:

 

All content from previous site and App is the same content for new site and App. Not all features have remained the same. 

 

New site and App both have a Guide. Site link was provided here: https://tv.xfinity.com/listings

 

To record a program from this guide, click on the program you want to watch. That will put up Watch option and Record option. 

 

Content that is In-Home Network can only be viewed through your home network connection. You can filter this for Available Out of Home for a list of channels that can be viewed anywhere. 

 

Channels can be changed with Xfinity TV Remote App or Xfinity TV X1 Remote App.

Re: Live streaming, On Demand and DVR access via https://tv.xfinity.com/

DVR does not show up unless you are X1. Big shaft to us that are not using it.

 

Home network does not include Comcast Business Internet. Bad idea!

Also the TV Remote App shows no DVR and has been broken for over a week.

Re: Where is my WatchList?

Since you are now forcing your users to use the tv.xfinity.com site, by taking away the old (but better) xfinitytv.comcast.net site, how about you fix the Guide so it is as useful as the old site was. 

Old site I could see up to 5 hours in the schedule at one time, while the new site gives me a useless 1/2 hours. 

Old site I could just see my FAVORITE channels, while the new site shows me the hundreds of useless channels I never watch. 

I'm all for progress, but this was not it!

Sorting through hundreds of useless channels is not fun. Looking through just my FAVORITES is a much more pleasant experience, which you now took away by forcing me to use the new site only. Progress is good, as long as there is actual progress.

Send your complaint to directly to Comcast.......

Website has been hacked

It appears that the website used for setting recordings and seeing TV listings has been hacked and replaced by something written by a 12 year old. Series priority manger is gone. Watchlist is gone. The ability to view only favorites in the TV listings is gone. Primetime search is gone. TV listings are now in a ridiculously large font and only show a 2.5 hour window. Hopefully you have proper backups and can restore the site functionality quickly.

Re: Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

This new portal is horrible.  I much preferred to have the normal page that listed Monday Night shows, Tuesday night shows.  I watch all TV on the computer, I do not remember when shows are on.  My DVR is filled with stuff my kids watch.  So of course my "selections" are all Mickey mouse and Doc McStuffins.  I do see the value in having what is on your DVR as a site to go to, but do not get rid of the old Portal that was a basic view for anyone.  

 

Not Cool Comcast... Not Cool..

Comcast is an abomination !!!  I don't have and will not be purchasing a smart phone.  All I want are the old TV listings which give me the opportunity to use my DVR Manager and record my shows remotely.

Re: Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

Apparently, starting today (9/27/2016, or maybe yesterday), I can no longer use the "old" on-line DVR Manager (URL = http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/mytv/dvr), and attempting to use it I get the new (and NOT-IMPROVED) TV Online portal (aka Xfinity TV) instead.

 

There are many, many, many features that the old DVR Manager had that do not appear to be available in the new app. I noticed a number of replies to this announcement touch upon some of the missing features (e.g., TV listings that don't indicate that an episode/show is "New", and no jumping to primetime, etc.) --- but I did not specifically read any that touch upon two of the most important features that I am NOW MISSING, specifically:

 

(1) ability to mark multiple DVR recordings for deletion ... currently I can only delete all of a title with all recordings of the title ... or just one at a time; additionally even deleting one episode of a show requires many many clicks to get to the delete choice; and

 

(2) the On Demand for movies --- filter function no longer has the "Free" option for filtering listings, nor is there a way of filtering by newly available, nor about to 'disappear' from On Demand.

 

OUCH!!!!

 

Please add these into the 'new' app --- I have no faith that Comcast will do so, given that the new app has been available for a long time with apparently little change in its capabilities, but I thought I'd ask here anyway.

Re: HEY COMCAST! Everybody hates your new TV listings! Next time do some user research or UX testing

Is it possible the people responsible for this new [GUIDE] don't watch tv ?   That's the only logical answer. I upgraded to the X1 but now can't even sign in to tv listings on the computer - and I'm not happy with the remote's tv guide either

Re: Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

I Agree this new TV Listings is S--T for the Birds! It is Definately NOT User friendly!! It doesn't tell which shows have new episodes or are repeats. U have to open it to find that out. And whats with only 2 hour time to look at. The old one let you look at up to 5!!! This is god me thinking AT&T or Dish??? Very Disapointed Comcast!!!!!

Re: Live streaming, On Demand and DVR access via https://tv.xfinity.com/

ComcastZach,

It is nice that Comcast did not drop content along with dropping functionality. But what good is contect if you cannot access it?

 

Watchlist is gone.

Series priority manager is gone.

In the Guide: Primetime view, Favorites, and My channels are all gone. And the oversize font has greatly reduced the amount of content visible on a page.

 

Are there any actual improvements in the new website, or is this a preview of the interface Comcast plans to deliver if the FCC forces a software-only set-top-box replacement?

Re: Live streaming, On Demand and DVR access via https://tv.xfinity.com/

The problem with using TV GO as all-in-one is that ..ahem.. some people have big screen tvs, not the wee phone screens.  Ubuntu ran into this problem with the Unity desktop - and so Linux Mint was born 

 

You need to take down the webpages.  Using FLASH makes me nervous.  Hire some google programmers and re-code the entire portal as HTML5.  That way you can use the [FORM FACTOR] to id screen sizes

Re: Where is my WatchList?

I agree!!!!

What was wrong with the ond list? 

 

This new directory:

1. Hard to read with the reverse type

2. Less hourly block visable.

3. Listings don't indicate if the show is NEW

4. You have to sign in to see the listing?? REDICULOUS! Who thought of that?

 

CHANGE IT BACK !!!!

Re: Live streaming, On Demand and DVR access via https://tv.xfinity.com/

Everyone should email ecare@comcast.com and let them know what's wrong with the new site. I did and most of the responses were like the moderators on this forum, but some were not.

 

"Thank you for your response and providing feedback for the update. I

have forwarded the details of your concern to leadership. Your feedback

will be combined with feedback of others who have also expressed their

thoughts about the update in general. Rest assured, we will exhaust

every effort to build a system which will work for all of our customers."

 

"System Updates are completed as general maintenance to make sure we are advancing with technology. Many of our updates occur when our engineers develop firmware which is free of errors. Although meant to relieve you of possible system malfunction, these updates can also be troublesome to customers. With the many customers who may dislike the update, there are also customers who are satisfied with it as it is a replica of our "TV Go". I am sure if enough of our customers share similar views, it would be probable that an update would occur to revert to the prior system.

The new TV Listing Directory is TERRIBLE

What was wrong with the previous version?

 

This new directory:

1. Hard to read with the reverse tpye.

2. Less visable hour blocks - need to scroll

3. Can't see right away if the listing is a "NEW" broadcast - have to access each listing.  It's a waste of time!

4. Have to sign in every time!  Who's the genius who came up with that?  Again, a waste of time!

GUYS!..... Please fix it!

Re: tv guide

Honestly I have never seen such rotten websites in my computer life. I went down several rabbit holes just to get this far. Either they are doing this on purpose or the level of incompetency at a higher level is beyond incompetent. I can't even get all my channels listed like espn1 and 2, Fox and several local stations. At Every other turn it wants me to sign in again. Im signed in moron! AND I pay a lot for this JUNK. Not much longer Beanie Boys!

Re: The new TV Listing Directory is TERRIBLE

Mine just changed. Now I have the listings for some other area or state without any options for changing it back.

Also lost my favorites, so now I'll have to scroll through a hundred or more channels to see what's on my dozen favorites?

I don't think so!

Re: tv guide

Dear Comcast. I watch TV on my TV, not my smartphone or tablet.

 

If my computer gets infected with a virus due to your poor decision to use Flash I will sue and I will seek to make it a class action suit.

Re: Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

I'm happy to hear that you continue to work on making the Xfinity TV On-line portal better.  I just wonder why you didn't do that BEFORE pulling the plug on a product that was functioning at a higher level already.  I try to stay "loyal" to Comcast, but there has been a pattern of supplanting working interfaces with dysfunctional ones without any transition time.  This new portal is unbearably slow, provides fewer options, is more difficult to navigate and removes many longstanding features of value.  Each time this happens I promise myself this will be the last time I put up with this disrespect and high-handedness.  Well, this IS it.  No more being told that a prettier less is somehow more.  If you can't provide honest service, I'll look for someone who will, even if it means paying more. 

 

Comcast doesn't even provide an actual entity to complain to!  We're stuck with commiserating amongst ourselves on a bulletin board.  How arrogant!!!

To record a program from this guide, click on the program you want to watch. That will put up Watch option and Record option. 

 

Content that is In-Home Network can only be viewed through your home network connection. You can filter this for Available Out of Home for a list of channels that can be viewed anywhere. 

 

Channels can be changed with Xfinity TV Remote App or Xfinity TV X1 Remote App. 

 

 


NO!!! IT DOES NOT!! I cannot record anything from the new listing. I have an xfinity box and I can't record anything from the listing!! HOW COULD COMCAST DO THIS IN OCTOBER WHEN ALL THE BEST HORROR FLICKS ARE SHOWN???? I can't schedule any recordings, can't switch to the channel, this is the worst possible design change I've ever seen! Absolutely ridiculous.

THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! BLESSINGS & GRATITUDE TO YOU WONDERFUL PERSON!

You have saved my sanity and emotional well being as I just opened a new tab for the TV Guide

and I'm signed in and ready to setup my favorites.  However I had to say thank you.  Please someone who

knows how to do this really, put the web site in caps all over the forum first page.

http://www.tvguide.com/  Who woulda guessed.  We all reallyyyyyy need to have backup copies, plans,

options, etc.  Now we know Comcast, no XFinity truly, is worse off in customer satisfaction than the IRS!

Add me to the very unhappy list. Without being able to filter "Favorite Channel" all channels. I am a quadriplegic, cannot use a remote or remote app for smartphone or tablets. I use to use the web TV guide to change channels on my TV and set DVR recordings. Now I can only use the guide to watch on my small laptop screen and not able to set DVR recordings. Big fail from an accessibility standpoint.

Well, let's see.....the lack of Fox Sports 2 is Fox's fault. The lousy listings set up on OnDemand is the channel providers' fault.  I wonder whose fault this latest travesty will be?  No "Favorite Channels" settings, the pages look horrible.  This is less than useless.

My bookmark that I have been using is the above: <http://xfinitytv.comcast.net/tv-listings?cid=customer#filters=favorites> however when I click it the address bar changes to: <https://tv.xfinity.com/listings> as if a virus is causing a redirect.  As a result all my favorites and all the other settings are gone.  As a result I had to use TitanTV.com to set my VCRs for tonight.  

 

Is this redirect a common hack of your system or does xfinity not support anymore the old format which used to work so really well that they had to "fix" it?

New Poster

Re: T.V. LISTINGS

Unfortunately this TV Guide is completely worthless to me. It used to save me countless time setting up programs, and denoting what's new and what's not. There's no favorites feature. I don't have a 3 hour viewing so I have to go over everything twice.

 

Unfortunately, I'll have to use TV Guide. If things don't change I'll be dropping Comcast the first of the year.

Frequent Visitor

Re: Announcement and feedback thread : TV Go is now part of Xfinity TV Online portal

To use the guide you must be logged into your account. This ties the guide to your home network. When you travel to a diferent service area where you do not have a local account, you cannot get the local listings anymore. With the old guide you could easily change geographic locations by zipcode.

 

You can watch your home DVR but not know whats on locally.
