All About X1 TV Apps

xfinity x1 apps

In 1928, the first television sold for $75. A lot more than just prices have changed over the last century. The “tube” has transformed into a total entertainment experience: interactive, dynamic, Internet-equipped, and sometimes even smart — so Comcast does TV even smarter.

Xfinity changes the way you watch TV. Our X1 TV Box delivers live broadcasts, your DVR library, On Demand programming, and all the apps you love to use on your cell phone and tablet—available directly on your TV. So, what’s app-ening with X1? Quite a lot these days...

How to access the Apps menu on your X1 TV:

  1. Open the Main Menu with your remote by pressing the Xfinity button.
  2. Navigate to the right, and select Apps.
  3. Highlight your app of choice, and press the OK button.

Shortcut: If you have an X1 Voice Remote, press the Microphone button and say “Apps” to be taken to the Apps menu.

Some apps are not supported on the RNG150 TV Boxes (non-DVR; Pace and Samsung models.)
