The app is actually working pretty well for me, aside for some features it abosolutely needs, but am I the only one noticing the PQ is substantially lower than what you get from the cable box? Looks like it's streaming in a lower resolution.
1 - better filtering for guide (i.e. HD only option)
2 - Quality settings to tailor the inage to the device (i.e. 720p, 1080i, 1080p like on the X1 box)
3 - Start up with last selected channel playing. Essentially, when i start the program if I was on Fox Sports that's what immediately pops up when the software loads
4 - On screen remote, or some additional app for iphone and android to allow the functions on a regular remote like number channel selection, pause, live TV, etc.
5 - Beter overall image quality. This might even be a good way for Comcast to introduce 4K programming to their product line (even if it's additional fee) without having to replace everyone's in-home cable hardware (because we know that's a monumental feat that will cost a fortune).
6 - Versions for Samsung TVs (please, even older ones e.g. 2015), nVidia Shield (the best set top box I've found), Apple TV (opens up a whole universe of users, and the App is already written), Fire TV (Huge userbase and a great way to pull subscribers in from Amazon's cord-cutting userbase)
7 - Reconsider the cost. A 25% discount over a cable box is laughable. Maybe $3.95 or even $4.95 would be reasonable, but this is basically an outlet only charge. I DO love that it doesn't count against the data cap, but it seems it is using data for many currently.
