Xfinity TV iPad App wifi vs 4G/3G



Why does the Xfinity iPad App specifically not allow me from streaming "Play Now" tv and movies when I am using 4G? It will give an error that says "No Wi-Fi Connection. You must be connected to a Wi-Fi network in order to play videos"


I am able to stream HD video using my 4G through HBO GO or the ESPN apps. Xfinity should not force me to use wifi when my cellular provider works just fine. The HBO app gives you a warning if you are on 3G/4G that you will be responsible for the data usage through your provider.


I have unlimited 4G data and want to stream using the Xfinity app via the 4G network as I am frequently away from a wireless network but have 4G.
