How to get my full home TV service, while away from home and on my laptop?

How to get my full home TV service, while away from home and on my laptop?

I'm hoping you can help me with my 2 questions below?

 

First:

When I am away from home for a few days, it would be really nice to be able to watch the same fully paid for TV programs I have at home, but on my laptop?

Does anyone know how I can setup my laptop to do this?

I have just about every TV channel that there is to get, and the lower channels (2-100), the 300's, 700's and 800's are the ones I'd like to watch on the laptop?

Maybe there is a written procedure somewhere that would tell me what I need to do in order to set this up correctly?

 

Second:

Sometimes, there is no cell phone connectivity where I go,. but there is WiFi (go figure)

How can I set up my iPhone to use the phone via WiFi?

your subscription is for home service. Comcast provides 200+ TVgo channels (streams from networks) and much of the on-demand library. Add to that the ability to stream any completed DVR recording (cloud DVR has last 60 hours per DVR).   for Wifi you can select the SSID's (if available) xfinitywifi or XFINITY and if you are running the Xfinity wifi hotspot app and have installed the security certificates there may be other SSIDs that will authenticate automatically. If you do not have those certificates installed in your device then you will have to login to the hotspots with your Xfinity account credentials.
