You can go to the app's On Demand section and enable the "Available for Download" filter (it doesn't properly filter the top "Featured" row so just ignore that).  

 

Once you find a TV show or movie you would like to download, select "Movie Info" or "More Episodes" to see the show or movie's main page. From there, you can download the episodes or movie by clicking "Download".  You have have up to 10 downloads on 5 different devices.  Enjoy!

Use the Xfinity TV mobile app available for Android and IOS mobile devices. You can download some On Demand assets.

I am not finding anything that allows me to download and save a movie on my laptop, to watch on a plane. The menu does not offer this feature.

I have the replace the X1 box.  If I download the recorded shows to my device, will they show up on the "new X1 box" after I return them from the device?

If you are swapping out the DVR you will still have teh cloud DVR recordings *maximum of 60 hours on the cloud DVR) to watch on the new DVR. If you are swapping out a non-DVR there will be no effect. Downloading is always from the cloud DVR (only) and does not involve the home DVR.
