Comcast and streaming to devices

Comcast and streaming to devices

Dear Comcast,

Is there any definitive documentation on your rules for streaming and what channels and apps work on which devices.  E.g. Starz works streaming on Roku, but apparently nothing else?  None of this makes sense to us out here and there don't seem to be any definitive answers from Comcast as far as I can see.  It makes NO sense that it works differently from one app and device to another.  Please respond.

Comcast only has 3 streaming apps, one for android, one for apple ios, and one for roku (in beta test). All the other apps such as the starz app is not produced by comcast
