I have 3 kids. 16, 13 and 6 years old. Needless to say, they are not often in agreement as to what to watch on tv. When we just recently moved my husband and I were checking out our options internet and cable/satellite – wise. We settled on Comcast because currently they had the best price and coolest features. We have not always been a fan of Comcast because I have felt in the past they charged too much for too little, but with these new features I have changed my tune.
Now my kids can watch what they want, when they want and not have to make deals with each other. It’s makes Mom’s work time much smoother and less noisy. No more fighting and declaring “they’re bored”. Comcast Xfinity’s abundance of children’s programming available on multiple screens and devices.

This is my favorite part. As much as I feel like kids should just entertain themselves in the car, the reality is now that devices are in our life. My kids can each download their own thing on their devices and watch what they want as long as they have their headphones. Austin and Ally and Dog With A Blog has been my 6 year old’s favorite. She loves not having to wait to watch her favorite episodes.
Comcast On Demand’s catalog has over 1,000 downloadable kid-friendly shows with Xfinity Digital TV and Streampix subscriptions. How to take kid-friendly content on the go during your family trips.
With Comcast On Demand’s catalog of over 1,000 downloadable kid-friendly shows, with your Xfinity Digital TV and Streampix subscriptions it’s simple to take kid-friendly content on the go during family trips and keep your child entertained for hours. Xfinity TV Player app allows customers to download content directly to their mobile devices for offline viewing.

We have been using the different Xfinity Streampix, Xfinity TV Player app and Xfinity On Demand a lot doing errands. My 6 year old does not like shopping unless it’s for her and the endless “mom can I get this” has been few and far between because I just tell her to watch her shows and I get through my shopping waaay quicker. She even watched Madeline the Movie the other day!
The best part about the Xfinity TV Player App is that I can set the parental controls. It makes me feel better to know if she decides to go up to her room or I am not in the vicinity, that she can’t “accidentally” download something I wouldn’t approve of her downloading.
To show you all the setting you can choose from I took a screen shot of my phone app. When Lu is using my phone I can change the setting with a parental pin that only I know. When she is done I can just turn it off. Again, I like that I can hand her my phone while I am chatting with my friend or at the store and feel comfortable knowing she is watching approved things. It’s definitely been a concern of late because she is under the impression she can watch the same stuff as her older brother and sister.
