Ipad tv play app

Ipad tv play app

Yeah from the looks of it on the ratings on itunes this app is completely broken.  When i try to watch anything, and i mean anything a message pops up saying "Sorry, we've experienced some difficulty playing your video".  It seems that this problem is prevelent if one goes by the ratings on itunes.  It would be nice if this could be resolved.

There is an xfinity tv app that also works on the ipad.  I have an ipad 2 so I don't know if it works on ipad 1

In the past I've streamed some on demand video with the xfinity tv app.

It also changes the channels on the cable box.

There are two apps the xfinity tv app and the remote app, both will work on any ios device with ios 5 or above.   I have them both on my new ipad and both work perfectly.  Make sure you are right by your wirless router when you try to watch a video first.  That way you will know if you just to far away.  Have you tried this on other wireless networks to see if it works.   It might also be an account issue on comcasts end.  I have found from this forum that if it just does not work and you have everything right then its something on their back end that needs to be changed.
