Re: Comcast App for Android

Good luck getting an answer on that. We've been trying to get a real answer for months. Next they'll move your post over to some obscure threat in hopes of keeping anyone else searching for the same answer from seeing how many customers are unhappy about the same issue.

Re: Comcast App for Android

Still no update on Android devices? As an avid Android user it is surprising this hasn't been implemented yet. Give the droid heads some love.

Re: Comcast App for Android

Thank you Comcast for FINALLY giving us Android users this app.

 

The only thing I would like to see changed is in Streampix. Please make it more like the On Demand menu, which lists the various categories. Before I discovered how to search for a program I had to wade through a bajillion titles to find a kids show. If I could use the app to go to Streampix, then choose Kids my life would be a lot easier.

Re: Comcast App for Android

You can filter for both network and Genre. 

 

So you can click filter  and choose networks -streampix, then you can select genre and choose any genres you would like to see.

Re: Comcast App for Android

Thank you ComcastBruce. After 6 clicks I got to the Children and Family section of Streampix.

 

And thank you Comcast for making it take 6 clicks instead of 3, which it would be if it were done this way:

 

Networks>>Streampix>>Children and Family

Re: Comcast App for Android

Google Play says my Xyboard MZ617 w/Android 3.2.2 is not supported by the Xfinity TV Player. Can you help me with this?

Re: Comcast App for Android

Downloaded the app a couple of weeks ago and all I was getting was audio (no video).  Yesterday saw that the was an update so I downloaded that and now it force closes immediately, saying "Unfortunately, Player has stopped."

 

Can anyone assist as I would really like to be able to leverage my subscription by using my tablet (it is running Android 4- Ice cream sandwich) is that matters?

 

Thanks.
