Visable designation of "new" programs?

Visable designation of "new" programs?

I appreciate the upgrades that have been made on the Xfinity web site which were useful features on the previous web site. But there is still one feature which hasn't been implemented that prevents me from using the online channel guide to browse for programs to watch -  a visable designation of "new" programs. Now you have to click on each program to see if it is new or a repeat. So I am still going to the Zap2it guide to browse and then back to Xfinity to program my DVR. For what I pay Comcast I shouldn't have to do that. Can we expect that to ever be added?

 

Another useful feature which is on the channel guide on the TV but not on the website guide - a visable designation of shows which have already been programed to be recorded.

swanda, this is found via the "Scheduled" section of XFINITY Stream. This will show all upcoming to be recorded programs. 

 

Thanks for your feedback about the new programs designation. At this time, clicking into a show and viewing the episode is the method for viewing the newest episode.

What swanda is talking about is a indication on the listings page as the previous site had

As I said, the channel guide on the TV DOES show a red dot on shows already programmed to be recorded. The channel guide on the website does not. I don't understand why you think that is valuable on the TV and not on the website, which is where I go to set recordings so I can watch the TV at the same time. As to the new shows designation, you have had plenty of time to restore all the useful functionality of the old web site to the new one, and given how much time you have had, I don't believe you ever intend to. Clicking on every show to see if it is new is not acceptable.
