    I tried it with my kitchen cable box and it Worked for like 1 hour than kept saying "There was a problem that has occurred" everytime I tried to press a button going to the living room. Tried uninstalling and signing out and signing in but it still gave the same message. The app can work with my big kitchen cable box but can't work with the living room which is what i use most. If you have a big x1 cable box, i recommend getting it.

  2. guest-avatar

    My problem: I couldn't find my remote fora TV in the downstairs half of my house So I thought this would be helpful. HAHAHA no! I signed into my x1 acct, also have excellent internet (Thru Xfinity as well) and still wouldn't work. I read the FAQ's; no help.I'll just go get a new remote.This app might work for others but judging from the reviews I read..I'm thinking they are also not too impressed. Tighten up Xfinity. People count on your products to HELP THEM! Not do the opposite.. Uninstalled!

  3. guest-avatar

    Crashes upon opening and login. Nonfunctional Every time: get started... (already logged in so) continue anyway... pop up saying xfinity remote has stopped so I close... looped back to get started screen automatically... repeat ad nauseum. Uninstalled and reinstalled to no effect. Very frustrated because this was the only possible control pending the provision of a new remote from XFinity.

  4. guest-avatar

    I used to love this app but now can't change to on demand from it. My toddlers like to sleep in the living room and I was able to put on Starz or whatever movie from my phone no matter where I was in the house. There's no movie section under the guide.

  5. guest-avatar

    Used to work great, now it can't connect when I am at home on WiFi. Turn it off and it immediately works again. I'm using YOUR internet service and nothing with my WiFi changed before it broke. C'mon Comcast

  6. guest-avatar

    Edit: App won't even start anymore. It just errors out. Don't know why the low stars, it doses what it should. I pick a show and it plays on my TV. Easy edit of my favorite list. I use it daily.

  7. guest-avatar

    "Unable To Retrieve Recordings" The app will not show me a list of my recordings. I believe it used to have that feature? Is that feature now disabled?

  8. guest-avatar

    Very easy to set up & use. The only thing I wish it had is the ability to increase or decrease the volume. Add that & I will give 5☆☆☆☆☆

  9. guest-avatar

    App only works to change channels had to find the remote to agree to watch a free movie even though three play options appeared with play symbols forwarding the movie to the screen only.

  10. guest-avatar

    Last night 1/18/2020 the app just quit working. My remote quit working over a year ago and the app I installed worked great then last night it just quit letting me change my channels. So I can see the guide but that's it. I am trying to find another app.

  11. guest-avatar

    Installed cause remote is lost. Sofar this app is working. Using with LG G4 android 6.0 ( old phone had laying around now has new life ) has IR light on top. This is 4/1/20. 2:40am

  12. guest-avatar

    I've never had this app before ever and the very first page is a sign in page (well get started page, but the next screen is "sign in") but absolutely no option to create account?? Totally confused. Guess I'll go back to the search box for an app that I can use.

    Ive been using it for years now all the suddenly its not working , my programmed tvs and boxes one side of them were missing and it wouldn't let me add it back. I don't use it anymore!! TOO MANY HEADACHES!!

  14. guest-avatar

    App works to change channels, but it's the wrong channel lineup. Can't see a place to update that.

  15. guest-avatar

    The app will not connect. There's no option to try to connect it and customer support is impossible to reach for this issue.

  16. guest-avatar

    Just received new pkg of 100 channels today and installed this app to check out my new feature. Will only use old remote for on demand viewing now. This app is my new remote. Love it! So much more info, color, pictures, its SO much easier to select *FAVORITES by channels/networks and sort/filter programs, movies, networks. This app controls all the TVs! It's fun to change channels on people watching TV in the living room while I'm watching my TV! They don't know what's happening!!!😆

    Having 3 small kids one being an 18 month old who is obsessed with all electronics she isn't allowed to have my remotes tend to go missing regardless of her having 3 play remotes. (I swear she just wants the xfinity one because I don't want her to have it) so having the remote app has been a lifesaver! I have never had any issues with it and the app works quickly and is incredibly convenient.

  18. guest-avatar

    Error when launching app is gone. Can finally view guide, only problem is it shows 4 TV boxes when I only have 3. Still shows old box I returned. Also cannot name change non X1 box. Increased to 3 stars til everything fixed.

  19. guest-avatar

    The remote app is better than the actual channel guide that comes up on your television when using the actual remote control.

    It would be nice If there was a keyboard for YouTube so when your searching something you can type in the letters or numbers instead of the up and down or left and right arrow keys.

  21. guest-avatar

    Okay when it actually loads. Loads really slowly. Oftentimes it doesn't load at all .

    Besides x Xfinity ability to eat my cereal while I'm at work I live this remote for me batching it out in the trailer it works very well even being i far away from the DVR...boom dun datta....fuggin rad g

  26. guest-avatar

    Can't even use this "remote" to turn on the cable box. It only changes channels.

  27. guest-avatar

    A fast forward, rewind, pause feature would go a long way. Real xfinity remotes have them but app doesn't?

  28. guest-avatar

    Couldn't get past "get started". The oauth page won't load even after numerous times.

  29. guest-avatar

    All it does is fail to load the schedule. Too bad comcast messed it up, 'cause it used to be useful.

  30. guest-avatar

    Worked great before update. Now will not work. Have kids always hiding remotes so this use to be great. Not anymore

  31. guest-avatar

    Doesn't work, new smart TV and third equipment and it doesn't change channels.

  32. guest-avatar

    Just upgraded boxes. Didn't work at first- had to uninstall/reinstall and resign in for it to work again

  33. guest-avatar

    Absolutely wonderful, very helpful when I lost my remote

    It works really good but it does not work on fire tablet. If someone knows how to do it on fire tablet please tell me

  35. guest-avatar

    Stopped working after update. Says there are no remote controls installed but worked fine for two weeks. Reinstalled but no improvement.

  36. guest-avatar

    The app will not let me clear out old tv settings or reset anything.

  37. guest-avatar

    Barbara Nice-Miller


    Does not work AT ALL after update! App won't even reinstall! Totally useless!!

  38. guest-avatar

    This app does not let you control the volume or the mute

  39. guest-avatar

    I was to download and install very easily... Helped in a emergency early in the morning with a 2 year old and 11 months old pair. Daniel tiger and super reader is a necessity...

  40. guest-avatar

    I like it. My Remote went down and all the channels are at eyesight.

  41. guest-avatar

    Works just like the remote, plus it shows you the customizable channel guide. Love it.

  42. guest-avatar

    Quit working all together I've uninstalled and reinstalled twice to no avail.

  43. guest-avatar

    Was told by customer service i could use until new remote came but says no device were found on my account

  44. guest-avatar

    Useless. I can't even see my channel guide. Can't record or watch anything.

  45. guest-avatar

    crashes constantly. totally useless, but what else would i expect from comcast?

  46. guest-avatar

    Installed it and had to close it out and restart them the drv part says it cant load. I gave up and uninstalled it.

  47. guest-avatar

    So awesome i f6ont have to buy batteries anymore for my remote... Lol

  48. guest-avatar

    Used to work, now it does nothing. Uninstalled, cache cleared, restarted. Nothing.

    New Update is nice, but the guide still does not show Hallmark Drama channel.

  50. guest-avatar

    Works great but need volume control

  51. guest-avatar

    Doesn't work. Won't let me select my tv.

  52. guest-avatar

    Why is the rating low? it's a remote and it works on Xfinity

  53. guest-avatar

    Needs volume mute. Come on guys

  54. guest-avatar

    App doesn't work 90% of the time. Wouldn't recommend it.

  55. guest-avatar



    I have installed several times, does not work anymore

  56. guest-avatar

    stopped working after last update 1/2/20 on android

  57. guest-avatar

    Have an account with Con-Cast but I can't even Sign in to this crappy Ass thing!😠 what AM I paying for every month? For if I can't upgrade my plan? Of course the Number is not working properly either!! Except for the payment part! Geh, I quess it's ok for them to Accept money! Our President Trump calls it Con-cast! LOL Exactly right on target!

  58. guest-avatar

    Very useful but NEEDS improvement!!! First it's flakey, when setting favorite channels it kept going back even though there was an ok box. Second on the All Channels view with the favorite filter on, if a favorite Star is touched the channel vanishes with an ok to turn it off you have to take the filter off find the missing channel & add it back to favorites. Third you can setup recordings (useful if away from home and you forgot to preprogram) but not turn off a recording.

    Good if use this cuz if i lose my remote i cab use thus app

  60. guest-avatar

    Called support a month ago when this app stopped working. 45 minutes later and a little bit of bugging they finally did some research and discovered that there was a problem with the android version. Now it's a month later and it still hasn't been fixed. As a software developer - I think this is insane, are they stupid? Why can't they just republish the old version until they fixed the bug in this version? I use this app almost daily. I am getting so close to no longer paying $150+ a month!

  61. guest-avatar

    I can see the channel list and it won't let me do anything else all of a sudden! I deleted several times and it's doing the same thing! I have just noticed lots of ppl are having the same issue. I don't mean to be rude, but you have no problem disconnecting our service when our payments are late, shouldn't you work properly, when we are paying!! Please fix this, as I am now paying $150+/month to stare at a black screen!

  62. guest-avatar

    I really like this App, not only is a good channel guide but like the name says it's also a cable remote. Additionally, it also let's you set your DVR remotely from anywhere (as does the Streaming App), so if you remember while you're at work or somewhere that you forgot to record the game, you can set right from your phone. This app did have some technical issues that kept you from logging in, but at least in my case those issues have been cleared up, so I changed my rating back to a 5.

  63. guest-avatar

    Hey Xfinity, this is a great app! I have been using it for a while and I have yet to encounter any major bugs. I especially like the feature for DVR recordings and how it simplifies the process. The Filters feature is most useful for keeping favorite channels organized. I also enjoy this app's simplicity and minimalism. But, just one thing though... it needs a "Dark Mode Option." Yes Xfinity, that would be rather nice. Thanks!

  64. guest-avatar

    Update If I could give negative stars I absolutely would. After latest update app will no longer log in at all. Gives an error message that it incurred a problem and to retry or cancel. Incredibly frustrating. Used to work ok now I can see the guide but not change the channel. It just says "there is a problem tuning master bedroom. Please try again later. It's been this way for at least 3 days. I was already unhappy with the Android app now I'm disgusted with it. 1000% better on Apple.

  65. guest-avatar

    This is a case in point example of what happens when a company has very few, if any competitors. The app works occasionally, and has been a perpetual failure for most... as you can see by the ratings. However if you're at all late on a single bill payment, top priority immediately becomes disconnecting your service.

  66. guest-avatar

    It's very convinent, it has the remote functions and TV guide. However, it's very confusing at the fact that it doesn't immediately indicate that it has all the functions of the remote. When you open the app, you immediately see a TV guide, microphone icon, and settings on the top left corner. It gives off the impression that you are only able to select from the TV guide and speak through the microphone to find something. I suggest Xfinity replace the microphone icon with a remote icon.

    Great app and easy to use

  68. guest-avatar

    Worst app ever, Xfinity / Comcast will not even support this app, it will not work at all, do not bother downloading it, just another useless app that is put out by a major conglomerate business that does not care about their customers, but only how much money they can squeeze out of them. Already looking for other alternatives to Comcast, which is an overpriced service with nothing on their schedule of shows but reruns, & poor customer service !!!

  69. guest-avatar

    Good enough for what it is, as a guide/channel changer. The voice control being contingent on the type of subscription you have is laughable, though, and the text for the guide glitches when you try to swipe ahead to see what's coming up later in the day. Generous three stars.

    Bethany Charron


    Need IR blaster for this to work at all in the slightest. The remote for my box broke somehow, idk nothing's physically wrong with it, it just don't work for some reason. I was stuck downloading this app and for the amount we pay for Comcast I expected something from this company to work. Why doesn't it go off of wifi? Why IR? Its a thing that doesn't exist in smart phones or tablets anymore, so why use it? Dumb dumb dumb f*** Comcast man.

  71. guest-avatar

    Worked, then didn't. Cleared cache, still didn't work. Uninstalled, reinstalled, no luck. Even the Xfi app won't work and that's a 1st time install. Xfinity needs to hire better programmers...

  72. guest-avatar

    Works, but… please check out at&t uverse remote app for ideas on improving this app. At&t Remote app does everything the physical Remote does - on/off for box & tv, volume, channel guide w episode description, record, play dvr & on demand. This xfinity app is light-years behind. Uninstalling as it is just taking up space. 😔

  73. guest-avatar

    I have only used this app one time & it was an awesome experience!! While visiting my mom, we were looking at a very interesting program on a cable channel. It was getting late (after 11pm); I wanted to see how the program ended & I had to get home. Sooo, I pulled out my cellphone, downloaded the remote app & set my cable box (at home) to record that program. When I got home -- I was able to see the rest of the program! Isn't technology grand???!!!

  74. guest-avatar

    6/15/19 Show details stoped a while ago. tried to uninst all and reinstall, didn't help. No longer able to see if the show is new or what episode is on. 11/18/19 Just want to point out that there is STILL no fix for this and now all devices fail to load details. I love how service gets worse but cost goes up.

  75. guest-avatar

    This app is horrible. The guide doesn't ever work for me. It comes up in the app, but when I click on any channel or program, I get an error message every time. The voice prompt is hit or miss for functionality as well. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, and it isn't very accurate with what it picks up.

  76. guest-avatar

    it starts out great but I have to uninstall the app and reinstall every other day to have all the choices it offers like movies, network and tv guide update 1 year later and it is still a piece of junk, one more year on my contract then I'm going to switch back to Dish network

    Just downloaded since our regular Xfinity remote is having issues (voice control works fine) but the buttons themselves have decided to no longer respond to touch, hence we're unable to "select" options or "exit" from any screen -____- Now to this remote app >> idk what type of crack it got its hands on, but I cant even get pass the tv guide screen. I just want to be great, but Xfinity really has been working my last everloving nerve today.

    I've tried this app in the past, it worked really good, but recently today I tried downloading it again and I'm able to login fine, however when I try clicking on a tv station, it shows an error message, and I've tried refreshing the app, but still no success.

  79. guest-avatar

    I have used this app exclusively to control my set top box for years without any problems and loved it!! But for the last few weeks there has been major problems DOES NOT WORK! Please fix and update ASAP!! I will edit back to 5 stars when working properly...

  80. guest-avatar

    Haven't tried this app for awhile. Used to work, now it doesn't. I can run system checks for other xfinity app, no issues. This one gives "An unknown error occurred during this request. Please try again later." Later made no difference!

  81. guest-avatar

    Johnathan Wilkins


    The app has never allowed me to select a tv station via guide so I had just been using the voice recorder to change channels. Now that no longer works. At this point it's completely useless. Please fix. Update: voice recorder is now functional again. Thank you!

  82. guest-avatar

    The only function that works for me is changing channels and even as embarrassing as it sounds I couldn't figure it out on my own I had to read another user's review to figure out that I have to click on the channel name itself and not the show name in order to be able to change channels because every time I clicked on the show name it would say all content unavailable please try again later no matter what show I would click on it would give me the same error message over and over

    Horrible I used to use this all the time and I loved it. Havent used it in about a year. Came back to try it again and it doesnt even work now. It wont select a TV and keeps saying its error. It is a shame I really liked this....

  84. guest-avatar

    What is going on with this app we lost remote and this came in handy. It was working great a few days ago and all of a sudden it has stopped working. Please get this fixed asap we pay all this money on bill every month they should keep customers happy and keep these apps updated.

  85. guest-avatar

    Updated - They finally brought back the record feature, so updated stars. Works better than it did before. ----- Removing the record feature made this app almost pointless. Now that it continues to give nothing but error messages when trying to change channels, it is worthless.

  86. guest-avatar

    Have been using this app very successfully for months, now for the last couple days I can see the listings but receive an error when I try to change the channel. Very frustrating, but at least now I know I'm not the only one with the issue.

  87. guest-avatar

    It used to work acceptably well. Now, it starts to open, but it fails when trying to find the tv and dvr. Clearing cache, forcing stop, and/or reinstalling the app doesn't fix the issue. Totally useless.

  88. guest-avatar

    App has completely quit working with the latest update as many others have said. Will not load. It is unacceptable that a large company like Comcast, which I pay lots of money to each month, cannot provide us with a working app.

  89. guest-avatar

    This app constantly freezes and needs to be restarted. It doesn't have the ability to return to the previous channel, like I can with a remote. It doesn't display all the show info available, like when using the remote. I could do better, give me a call.

  90. guest-avatar

    It quit working completely this afternoon. Won't connect. Won't change channels. Won't do anything. I rely on the app controller rather than the physical remote, because of logistical issues. This is out outrageous.

  91. guest-avatar

    This remote app for Xfinity isn't working . I have uninstalled then reinstalled. It comes up as a blank screen and I can't change channels. I loved this app until it just started this to where I can't change channels.

  92. guest-avatar

    Often has connectivity issues. Nice being able to see channel lists. The layout logic is bizarre at best. To get to the remote option you need to click on the microphone icon on the bottom tight.

  93. guest-avatar

    It's broken. Clicking on any show or channel gives the error: "An unknown error has occurred during this request, please try again." Tried reinstalling, rebooting. Nothing works.

  94. guest-avatar

    No longer works on Android or iPhone. Same issues as everyone one else. went as far as rebooting everything and reinstalling the app and my browser. No go... They must have fired the one developer who wrote it and then outsourced it.

  95. guest-avatar

    Its been great working perfect but for some reason its not working for us right now. Wont let us change our channels go to you tube or anything. Im hoping i can get it fixed cause my daughter lost our remote and this app has been wonderful

  96. guest-avatar

    Missing a couple buttons that are on the remote. Adds the ability to type text in which is nice. For Xfinity garbage this is the best of the worst. Stay away from Xfinity and everything associated with them.

  97. guest-avatar

    Unless I'm doing something wrong, this isn't a "TV Remote "! It's a discombobulated viewing queue . I want to adjust the volume, pause what I'm watching, fast forward through ads. NOPE

    Doesn't work. Really offended by this being called an app. I am only typing the rest of this because we are required to have a certain amount of characters in order to leave a review. However, doesn't work was very sufficient.

  99. guest-avatar

    Just like many others, the app NO LONGER WORKS. I keep getting "ERROR: An unknown error occurred during this request. Please try again." Hope the developers get the app fixed. I found it useful WHEN it worked. Update -12/04/2019 Yay!!! It's working again.

  100. guest-avatar

    The app wouldn't work. After connecting and identifying which tv I wanted to control, i attempted to change channels. It kept saying there was a problem and asking if I wanted to retry or cancel. Uninstalled
