Do I need internet at home to stream elsewhere

Do I need internet at home to stream elsewhere

I have X1 service with Internet at our snowbird home.  Do I need to continue the internet service maintained at this home in order to use the Xfinity stream app while traveling?  I normally cancel my internet service when we shut up the house for summer.  Our association pays for Xfinity TV service so that remains active year round.

No, as long as you have TV service you can watch the "TV Go" channels (about 200 live channels, depending on subscription) and related On Demand.  You only need Internet service to get the "in-home" only content (your full channel lineup).
