Using Android Box as computer

Using Android Box as computer

Why do I get the error "..because of security protocols..." you can't view this video. I am on my network in my house, why does it matter what kind of device I am using? I am so fed up with comcast, they just don't know. A few more months for AT&T fiber to be available...then I won't have to deal with the over priced - problematic xfinity. 

We should not have to accept limitations like this from Xfinity. It needs to be resolved quickly.

I have all my Xfinity apps installed on my Galaxy Tab A and they work just fine.

The Android and iOS apps do not allow output to external displays because of programmer (TV networks) contractual restrictions related to DRM (Digital Rights Management). On a PC or Mac you can visit https://tv.xfinity.com which will allow external monitors to be connected.
