xfinity TV app

xfinity TV app

I'm subscribing to Xfinity streaming only service. I'm using it on my iPhone and my wife is using it on small Android notebook. Until this point our app of choice was Xfinity TV-GO; however Comcast recently deactivated this app and forced us to install Xfinity TV. It still work fine on iPhone, but after installing it on notebook I can log in and I see all the channels, but if I try to play any of them I get the following message; "Because of security protocol required by our network partners, you can enjoy this video on your mobile device only" I try to uninstall reinstall, but still the same problem. Why will new app be any different than TV-GO as far as functionality?

Please help!

Re: xfinity TV app

AirPlay and GoogleCast are not supported by the XFINITY TV app due to contractual restrictions from our programmers. I suspect that your wife's Android has screen mirroring/casting enabled. You should be able to turn this off within settings. Best, ComcastDan
