On March 22, version 3.5 of the XFINITY TV Remote app was released for Apple devices with iOS 9 and Android devices with Ice Cream Sandwich OS or later.
With this release, the XFINITY TV remote app now supports voice remote functionality (requires iOS 10 on Apple devices and Jellybean on Android devices), allowing XFINITY X1 customers to control their TV boxes using voice commands like “Record Saturday Night Live,” “The Secret Life of Pets” and “Channel 810.” The app also now includes directional pad (d-pad) and numeric keypad functionality.
Please note that voice control with the XFINITY TV Remote app only works on X1 TV boxes, excluding RNG150 devices.
All - Thanks for your patience while this deal was worked.
As mentioned earlier, we want to bring our content to as many platforms as we can, but these are business deals that need to be negotiated and sometimes it can take time to come to agreeable terms.
We’re thrilled we were able to do so with Playstation, giving customers one more way to access their subscription.
Have two xfinity accounts at my home address and our cottage. Had deleted the iPad from wifi devices on home acct due to being unable to access anything but the guide...And could not even find any devices on our cottage acct even though I have used it here for the past year. Anyway, tried to set it up again ...shows up in home acct as a wifi device...tried to open the app and it says lets get this iPad registered...then it won't go past username/password with either acct. Just spins for awhile and then back to log in screen saying " something went wrong" . Using the older TV app as my iPad still on iOS 8.1.1
Unfortunately, the older versions of the app will no longer work and the new version requires iOS 9+. Please see the system requirements here:
Thanks ComcastDan. I never know what to believe when I am on the phone with Comcast anymore. I called back after seeing that the local channels magically appeared and signed back up for the tv service. The CSR verified I had my own modem and told me that I wouldn't be charged $10.00 for one. I got 'Your service changes are confirmed' email from Comcast a little later and you won't believe it, but the Wireless Gateway charge was there!
I then called Comcast back and had a CSR look into it and again verify that I do indeed have my own modem. They then said they were going to remove the charge. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it is done and I won't have to call back. I won't hold my breath, but I'll keep my fingers crossed. Hopefully, they do and I can go at least another year without calling Comcast.
It just lags and stops. I don't have Apple TV. None of the stuff loads. I signed out and I even downloaded the app again. Still nothing.
And no error messages.
Hmmm. Sorry. Have you run a speed test to see if you have connectivity issues (or try streaming on a different network)?
What model iPad and what iOS version are you running?
Stream/TV app thinks I am out of my home when I am not and I am connected to my home network.
I only have 1 user name on my account.
Is this happening on your Android device? Are you connected via VPN by any chance?
