To watch showname you'll need to connect to your home wifi

Hello, I have xfinity tv service but i have a different provider for internet service in my home.   I can use the xfinity stream app to watch most channels except local ones in my area such as NBC, ABC, CBS..   Do i need to have xfinity internet service for the xfinity app to recognize all channels in my own home?  or should it work 100% with another modem? thx in advance

Without xf internet, you can only stream chanels/shows avail out of home (off home network). Set TV Go filter and you may find those channels available away from home.
