Print
With the XFINITY TV Remote app, you can use your smartphone or tablet as a remote control: change the channel, program your DVR or search XFINITY On Demand and TV listings - all with a simple tap on the screen. You can even schedule your DVR when you're away from home. Your TV is now right in your hands.

Eligible TV Boxes

The remote features of the XFINITY TV Remote app will work with most Comcast TV boxes, including XFINITY X1 TV boxes.

When you download and log into the XFINITY TV Remote app on your smartphone or tablet, you’ll see a list of the eligible TV boxes in your home. Simply select the TV box you want to control and use your smartphone or tablet to change the channel, set a DVR recording and more.
