Search Tips

  • Finding a program without an exact name: The search system will recognize program title synonyms so if you type in "Law and Order" it will return results for "Law & Order"; typing in "Nip and Tuck" will return results for "Nip/Tuck".
  • Finding a movie that isn't available XFINITY On Demand yet: Results are only returned for programs and movies that are currently available On Demand. However, new content is frequently added to XFINITY On Demand so if you save your search and run the search again on a different day you may get different results.
  • Searching for a musician's name or band name: Just enter the musician's name or band name, or a word in the song title, as your search term.
  • Searching for adult-rated programs: Programs rated "Adult" don’t appear in search results
