Unable to Stream ESPN

Unable to Stream ESPN

Why cant I stream ESPN, Nbc sports, etc at a shore (secondary) property?

Get message '.... it is not part of my subscription....'

I currently have the basic tv package along with wif at this location.

 

I can go to a public place and watch these channels but I am unable to stream from my own home?

you must be inside USA border to stream. The ESPN go channels are available outside of the home, the NBC sports depends on the copyright owner's program setting.

Re: Unable to Stream ESPN

I am in the continental US for both locations.

I have 2 comcast accounts for 2 different residences.

 

When I try to stream - ESPN,NBC Sports- at secondary residence, I get message ...'need a subscription to watch it'.  

I tried loggin in with either account and I get the same result.

 

I have wifi at both places as well.  I am able to go a public location of 'shore' property to stream but when I try to stream 

in my home, I get error message.

Re: Unable to Stream ESPN

Trying to stream thru WatchEspn app.

I dont think ESPN is available to watch thru  xfinity stream app.

I am almost positive Nbc sports cannot be.

Hello Willcya, do you get the error message while trying to play any other content? Are you connected to your home Wi-Fi? Have you tried streaming the service from another device?
