If the content says "watch in home only" that is due to rules and restrictions set by the network. If you would like to view this content away from home you would have to record it and then download it to the "Xfinity Stream" app. This way you can take your favorite shows with you anywhere and watch them anytime.

Hi Woebkete, do you get an error message while trying to view "ABC, CBS, NBC, or FOX"? When you try and access these channels through the app are you connected to your home network?
