Roku Xfinity App

I tried using the app while away from home using my Roku and was denied access with an error message saying that you can only use the Roku channel if you're connected to your home Wifi network. I have cable at home and don't know why I'd use be Roku app instead of my X1 box and would find it pointless.

Hopefully this limitation will be removed in the future when it's no longer a "beta" version.

the goal of the Roku and Xfinity app is to give you another outlet in your home not while travelling.

Ok but I don't see the harm in using it while traveling since I'm a paying customer and not trying to steal cable.
