App update

Updated the streaming App yesterday, on my IPad. No longer offers a box to type in a  channel to 'jump' to, can't view tv guide while watching (unless you minimize the screen first): no 'info' button available on the show you are watching, the current time does not appear anywhere on the screen being viewed. Other annoying although maybe less impactful changes.

 

Am I misssing something? I deleted the app and downloaded it again from scratch but it appears to be a change from your end. Why would you lose those features? Can you point me to any improvement?

hit the upper left corner down-arrow to minimize player and see the time, touch the minimized listing to resume. to change channel touch the triple dot upper right corner.

Re: App update

But you  used to be able to do those things without stopping the show you were watching, before the update, i.e. before yesterday!  

 

Also, an option would be a virtual remote to plug in the number of the channel you want to go to directly, which is no longer available. There is no “info” button anymore on a show that is in the process of playing, and the time does not show up  now unless you stop the show and go to the guide. These are the changes I am finding in the updates I downloaded yesterday.  And I don’t understand how they improve the app rather than detract from it

Re: App update

I absolutely agree.  These changes have not improved the app at all.  Instead they have mad it far worse.  Comcast/Xfinity - Please undo these changes and make the app useful again.
