Comcast XFINITY TV App Now Available

Comcast XFINITY TV App Now Available

Some of you may remember the disappointing Comcast XFINTY Mobile App that Comcast released back in December. Well, guess what? Comcast has done it again. Comcast released yet another disapointing app that seemingly does the same thing as the first (I’m as confused as you are).

From what I can tell, the only thing the new XFINITY TV app has that isn’t in the Mobile app is the ability to act as a remote control. Why they decided to create a separate app for one feature is beyond me but hey, it’s Comcast. They really should have just added this feature to the Mobile app through an update. To add insult to injury, the ability to watch TV is still missing! Does this mean Comcast will be releasing a third app to pollute our Android devices?

Comcast, Xfinity, whatever they are calling themselves, has finally got around to releasing an app for Android. I happen to be a Comcast customer (no Verizon fios in my area) and couldn’t wait to download this app and see what features I would be getting. I soon realized that while it was something, it wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for. I was hoping for the ability to watch TV or On Demand on my phone but I was once again disappointed by Comcast (go figure). I guess I will have to continue to use my Slingbox/Slingplayer combo to watch TV on my phone. There are however some useful features to take advantage of if you happen to be a Comcast subscriber.

With the XFINITY Mobile app you have one easily accessible inbox for your Comcast email and voicemail. Email and Voice features also include:
