The Comcast XFINITY TV XR2 remote will control Comcast set-top boxes running the On-Screen Guide 2.0 or XFINITY TV on the X1 Platform guides.

Later this year the XFINITY TV XR2 Remote will also be issued with High-Definition Digital Adapters.

The remote is sleek and simple to use. There are fewer buttons so you can easily and quickly find the functions you’re looking for, and the buttons you use most often are easily accessible. Plus, the XFINITY TV Remote is smaller and easier to handle.
