As long as you are connected to your Xfinity Internet connection, you should be able to watch the channels included in the Stream TV package (ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW, PBS, HBO...).  Are you getting an error message when you try to watch on your desktop computer while in your home connected to your Xfinity Internet?

Is Stream-TV related to Comcast's service that lets you watch your DVR content on your computer?

I have basic tv and online capabilities but everytime I try to watch any channel it appears I have to pay a subscrition. Please advise what channels are available for streaimg

Yes.  Stream TV uses the same web portal that X1 customers can use to access DVR recordings on a computer.  The difference is that a Stream TV customer doesn't have a set-top box in the home to watch the service on a TV and the Stream TV channel lineup is much shorter than a typical X1 package.  Stream TV includes local broadcast networks and HBO.  

 

Let me know if you have any other questions!

GSyed, 

 

It sounds like you may not have Stream TV but you should be able to stream the channels that are in your package.  Are you trying to stream channels that you're able to watch on the TV?  Those would be the channels that you should be able to stream.  

 

Hope this helps!

Jessica

Have been trying to cancel, Stream quality is terrible even with 150 internet. It does not show under account services. I'm still in the 30 day trial.
