Disclosure: Post and giveaway sponsored by XFINITY, but all opinions are my own. Please see below for additional disclosure.
As much as I love traveling and all the experiences that come with blogging, sometimes I want a day off from being a business owner. I know what I’d do with that day too – binge watch tv. Aside from the obvious cell phone and computer, my DVR is seriously a device I couldn’t live without. I hate watching live tv! I just can’t do it. My time is important to me and while there is a commercial here or there that amuses me, most are time wasters. I want to get right into my show so I record my favorites so fast forwarding through commercials is a breeze. XFINITY has created apps for people exactly like me and I wanted to share a few of my top choices.
XFINITY TV Go – It seems I’m always on the run, but there are down times in between connecting flights or after events on a cruise when I need something to do. With XFINITY TV Go I can take my entertainment with me – anywhere! There are thousands of XFINITY On Demand TV shows and movies that are instantly available to stream on my phone, tablet, or computer. There’s something to suit whatever mood I’m in. I can even watch the news or download the latest episode of premium shows on channels like Showtime, Starz such as Black Sails hello pirates!, Encore, and Movieplex. Additionally there are 50 networks that you can stream live shows from including ESPN, SEC Network, Disney Junior, Sprout, ABC Family, USA, A&E, TNT, FX, AMC, TBS, Food Network, Travel Channel, Bravo and E!
XFINITY TV Remote – Our remote is constantly getting misplaced. With the XFINITY TV Remote app turns smartphones and tablets into a remote. I can change channels, browse tv listings, even look through thousands of On Demand options. If that wasn’t cool enough, with the TV Remote app I can schedule my DVR programs. This is perfect for when I forget to record a show, using the app makes sure I don’t miss anything good. There’s even a special version of the XFINITY TV Remote for use with the X1 system that uses voice commands. Talk about easy! Use your voice to find something to watch or schedule recordings. It even provides personalized recommendations.
XFINITY Wifi – You know that this is one of my favorite apps because a travelin’ gal needs WiFi when she’s on the road! The XFINITY WiFi application makes it easy to locate thousands of XFINITY WiFi Hotspots so that I don’t use up all of my data and totally drain my battery while I am out and about.
XFINITY My Account – As I’ve mentioned, I’m a busy woman! I simply don’t have time to wait on the phone for hours to speak with a customer service rep. With XFINITY My Account, I can see my account and connection status or make payments. I’m able to see if there are outages in my area or make service appointments and request a call back if necessary. I’m able to manage my entire account from anywhere.
