The quality really isn't good enough IMHO. Better off getting a hd homerun and streaming off that.

Thnx for the app. I am listed outside the US and were not able to download it from the playstore. Now my AFTV is almost perfect.
I am still missing the newest version of the directv app.
Could any one help med out so I can sideload it also.

Thnx all

my experience
I get video buffering while watching sports on my Xfinity TV Go app running on an Amazon fire stick. I was going to try the fire and use direct ethernet cable from router to see if that would eliminate buffering. Has anyone found success with this?

sideloaded the settings.apk and then connected my Mac bluetooth mouse to it. I can navigate through the live channels with the mouse and play my dvr'd material, as well as on demand.

Just to add to this:

I was struggling with this as I just purchased the firetv stick and I have an iPhone.

After sideloading the Xfinity TV app and settings.apk., this now works perfectly for me: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BX0YKX4 (alternate: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BALK9CM)

if you hold down the right mouse stick and use the trackpad, it scrolls just like the native android app is supposed to.

Yes, it's a $20 solution, but the keyboard has many uses. If there is ONE caveat, the trackpad area is small, so it can take multiple swipes to navigate the guide.

I don't notice a terrible degradation in video quality. Sure, it's not as good as the real HD box we have in our living room, but certainly good enough (really good) quality for a spare room.

Does anyone have issues with the audio not matching the lips of people on the screen? Sideloaded Xfinity on my Fire TV stick and it works great, other than the audio issue. Tried with my home theater turned on and off.

It also seems to occasionally skip a few scenes, like it's lagging behind.
