Sorry you're having trouble. Are you outside the USA? Streaming is restricted to USA only due to programmer rights.

with the stream app select Live TV / All Listings. and touch the filter futton button and activate 'available out of home', then touch done. The listings shown all should work. Same for on-demand assets.

are you physically located inside the USA while playing back? (as a Comcat employee asked above) What error code do you receive?

Error code 3305. It says I have no wifi connection when I do. I am trying to play a recording from my DVR outside of the U.S. Can you only play your recorded shows on your DVR inside the U.S. Or not?

streaming won't work outside of USA. you can download up to 6 10 recordings and watch them anywhere. Comcast does not have the 'digital rights' to deliver streaming content outside of USA.

 

edit: senior moment I guess.. typed 10 on so many replies.

Mostly correct, Rusty.  Streaming doesn't work outside the USA.  You can download up to 10 items to 5 separate devices for viewing offline (even outside the USA - as long as the download happens before you leave).
