chrome box tv

I have a second home with service from comcast. Why can't I load the xfinity app on to my chrome box and watch xfinity when not at my second home? The box I use is doogoobang II.

Thank you.

when not on your own home internet network, you can watch on any smart device or desk/laptop all of your TVgo channels, a huge library of on-demand streaming, and all of your last 60 hours of completed recordings. The option is also available to download your completed recordings and even some on-demand programs so that you can watch wihtout using any internet at all.

Re: chrome box tv

Hello climber2200,

 

As Rustyben stated you can stream with TVgo or download recordings to your device.  Most access from the Xfinity app requires you be connected to your home network. I do apologize for this limitation. If you are unable to access the content at all please message me with your account information so I can investigate. Thank You

The device you're using is a goobangdoo which runs andriod apps and must be connected by hdmi to an external display (the device has no display itself). I believe the xf stream app will detect that the app is running on a device that is connected to an external device and block streaming.
