Support XFINITY TV Search on the X1 Platform from XFINITY

Introduction

The X1 Platform makes searching for content across live TV, On Demand, and DVR easier than ever! And with our growing XFINITY On Demand library, that has never been more important.

Search for a Program from the Main Navigation

To access search from the main menu:

  1. Highlight search (the magnifying glass) from the Main menu.
  2. Press OK/Select on the remote control.
  3. Use the on-screen keyboard to type in characters, or for an easier and faster search, use the keys on your remote that correspond to letters to use predictive search.
    • For predictive search using the key on your remote, simply type the first few letters and the X1 Platform will autocomplete and provide integrated search results across live TV, XFINITY On Demand and your DVR.
  4. The X1 Platform allows you to search on a title, network, actor or sports team, accessing more content than ever before.

Direct Channel Entry Search

The X1 Platform not only allows you to type a channel from your remote for direct channel entry, but now you can also search for a TV series, movie, network, person and sports team or sports event. While watching live TV, simply use the number buttons on your remote, which also correspond to letters, and see channels and other content returned.

Search from the Guide

The X1 Platform also allows Quick Search from within the Guide to find upcoming linear programs. Using the keys on your remote, search using numbers or the corresponding letters on the keys to search for programs. Not sure of the channel number of a network? No problem! You can also search for a network by name, and the X1 Platform will jump the Guide to the channel that network is on.
