Private mode online from remote site

Trying to watch live tv from a remote site and get message that " 

This content on Xfinity TV is not available for viewing with Private mode enabled. To play this video, please view this page without Private mode enabled."   What is going on - the whole reason to watch online is so you can watch away from home??  isn't it?????

InPrivate mode is from your browser ( IE ).  You will need to close that page and open a new page that is NOT InPrivate mode to able to view the content.

HOW TO GET OUT OF " PRIVATE MODE"  IS WHAT I WANT TO KNOW - IS IT WHERE YOU CHANGE YOUR SECURITY? OR WHERE?    THE HELPDESK FOR COMCAST DID NOT HAVE ANY CLUE ON HOW TO CHANGE IT.    ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED.    THANKS.

I searched online and found a tutorial that shows step by step what you will need to do within the Windows Regstry to permanently disable InPrivate Browsing in Internet Explorer.

 

That link is here:  http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/62135-internet-explorer-inprivate-browsing-enable-disable.html

Re: Private mode online from remote site

Thank you for the help - seems like a lot of trouble just to disable a feature that you should be able to click on for yes or no and change it on the fly.   Thanks again.  But why should a website care about you keeping things from their website anyway? - sounds a little ?#$?  doesn't it?   BIG  BROTHER????  Anyway, thanks again.      reset3105
