Differential Xfinity On Demand

On my TV connected to Xfinity cable I can view CBS shows on demand on my Ipad connected via WiFi connected Xfinity cable Xfinity On Demand does not include CBS. Why?

Re: Differential Xfinity On Demand

I belive you need the separate CBS app from the app store.

Re: Differential Xfinity On Demand

Thx but not the same. Both the IPad and TV after all are connected to Xfinity cable. The Xfinity App is not fully functional. The CBS app is not that useful as it requires a subscription fee to view many of its shows. The disconnect is with Xfinity-same wire into the house different behaviors by device.

Jay is correct, Comcast doesn't have mobile rights to CBS ( and a handful of other networks).

Re: Differential Xfinity On Demand

So Xfinity on Demand mobile is different than Xfinity on Demand on your TV even though both come into the house via the same cable. (No offense Jay is not right the CBS app does not let you see most shows only an all-access subscription to CBS does either via a browser or app. Xfinity should work on this mobile issue for within the same households cable recipient.
