Re: XFINITY Instant TV Beta

Yes - it does work on my ipad and iphone. Launching channel, meaning - click on the “watch” icon. It then closes then gives a blank screen and closes the app on Roku.

If you mean https://www.xfinity.com/stream/

It appears so; the same saved recordings appear there as well as on my X1 STB.

Re: XFINITY Instant TV Beta

Yes I meant the Stream site you linked. I see that my recordings from X1 box are listed there under "Saved" and I can modify/delete them from the Stream site. Do you know of a way to schedule from the site? Like in the TV listings area can I set a recording for upcoming content or does it have to be done from the X1 box?

 

Example: Stonehenge show is on NatGeo later tonight. If I go to show description I just get "Watch Channel" or "More Info" no way to record from there.

 

 Some things on later have "Watch Now" and are on-demand so no issue with those of course.

The Xfinity Instant TV needs a lot of work.   It will likely be the reason I switch providers at the end of my contract.  The fact that it cant pause live tv on either Roku or Samsung is lame.   The fact that there is no favorites option on Samsung app is also lame.    This is an app that is in beta forever yet I am paying for it!

Thank you.

 

Yesterday, my first day on the Instant TV app on my IOS device, I was absolutely able to set up recording schedules for several shows remotely. Problem is, when I went back into the app to modify those schedules, I was unable to do so.
