Watching tv on computer overseas

Watching tv on computer overseas

On the xfinity website you can watch live tv on your computer. If you are overseas in Europe or Middle East will this feature still work?

Probably not. I think it uses geolocation based on your IP address. There may be way around using some VPN's, but it's iffy at best.

No, but you could look at this Comcast approved VPN, that may work for you :

Thanks for your reply.  I didn't think I would be able to use this feature overseas.

I had heard about various VPN's but not sure if I would want to use it.  Many thanks for your reply and advice.
