I am back with an update on my X1 XFINITY service. My husband and I had XFINITY TV, internet, and phone set up in our in our house a little over a month ago and have really been enjoying it! It took a few days to get used to a new remote, new channel locations, and how things worked and I feel like we are still learning new things it can do every day!
We pretty much had our favorite channels memorized on our last system – you know how that is… when you move or reorganize a room and can’t find anything! Well XFINITY and the X1 system made the adjustment a lot easier. To find a channel, program, movie, or even an actor we just start selecting the letters (on the number pad) that correspond to what we are looking for. It brings up a suggested list and is easy to select what we were looking for.
Also we ended up having TONS more channels than we had with our last provider. Which is great but who wants to look through 100’s of channels searching for a show or a certain channel? You can set certain channels as favorite channels or even favorite shows and just scroll through your favorite channel list. And the best thing is the search function works across all avenues so if I am looking for Curious George for my nephew, I just start typing in “Curious…” and it will bring up any shows or movies with Curious George that are currently on TV, available On Demand, available for purchase, or even saved in the DVR. You can even select “more like this” while watching a program or viewing a movie in the guide to find other suggestions of what to watch.
One of the first things I did was to set up parental controls. I didn’t want to accidently purchase something and didn’t want any inappropriate programs available in our home either. Setting a pin for purchases, for certain ratings, and certain channels was simple and helped put my mind at ease.
I love how everything is on screen and on one simple menu with the X1 system – DVR, On Demand, Apps, and more are just right there with the push of one button. I am absolutely LOVING having a DVR and ON Demand. Those services were new to us and with all the Christmas movies and new Hallmark movies on TV this season we are definitely making use of it! I am sure I will have more to say about those services in future months.
Now who has some Christmas shopping to do? Because one of you will win a $100 American Express gift card.
