Watch online in UK

I'm studying abroad for the year and had planned on watching tv in my dorm on my laptop because I have comcast but now its telling me "XfinityTV videos can only be viewed from within the US. If you believe you are seeing this message in error, please connect to a different network and try refreshing your browser." Does this mean I can't watch anyting online while I'm here?! Please tell me this isn't true!!

Re: Watch online in UK

Unfortunately for you, it is true. You will not be able to watch your shows online.

 

This is something Comcast has no control over. The networks are generally the ones who will not allow their shows to be viewed outside the United States.

 

From here http://forums.comcast.com/t5/XfinityTV-Website/XfinityTV-Online-Help-FAQ/m-p/1106967/highlight/true#...

 

"Can I watch videos on xfinitytv.com if I am outside the USA?

 

Unfortunately, we do not have the rights to stream content internationally. If you are physically located outside of the United States, you will be unable to watch videos on our site."

They don't allow it from outside the us.  But a US based VPN service would provide a US ip and it could be done that way.  Probably a violation of terms of service though
