If you're an "on the go" type of person or family like me, then the XFINITY TVGo App is perfect for you! We first used our XFINITY TVGo App while on a short family vacation over mid-winter break. The kids loved having a "movie night" at our hotel. We used it again shortly after while staying in a hotel over Easter weekend. The kids were ecstatic to have the app!
XFINITY customers can watch live TV on more than 75 channels from your smartphone, tablet or laptop. You'll also have access to thousands of TV shows and movie titles through their On Demand service. What's super cool is you can also download some shows and movies to your phone or tablet to watch when you're offline. This is super helpful if you have an iPad like mine that doesn't have a data plan and only works through wifi.
Above, you see what the screen looks like after you easily log into the app.
Below, you see what the Family/Kids section looks like. There are hundreds of movies and TV shows for your kids to watch. You can use the filter to see what's available for download, or to separate movies from tv shows. Of course, the magnifying glass in the upper right hand corner allows you to search specifically for things.
As a parent, I really appreciate the parental controls. My son is 4, so he doesn't read yet. 99% of the time he asks me before clicking on anything, but in my opinion, just because it's in the kids/family section, it doesn't necessarily mean it's appropriate for children ages 4 and 7!
As mentioned above, you can also access live TV. There are tons of choices obviously and I think it's a really nice feature. When I'm busy blogging, I don't really like to have the TV on, but I do like that I can have my iPad next to me and glance at it and listen to it. This is one of my favorite features of XFINITY TVGo!
