Eastern Standard Time vs. Pacific Standard Time Livestreaming

Eastern Standard Time vs. Pacific Standard Time Livestreaming

Before Xfinity made some changes to their website I could livestream all channels on their site at EST (Eastern Standard Time) even though I'm in California. I liked that because I could view programs on my computer 3 hours before they would normally air on television. Then Xfinity changed some things on their site and now I can't do this; I only see programs airing at PST (Pacific Standard Time). Is there any way I can change this and go back to watching channels at EST? If so please let me know how, thank you.

I would say the only way would be to move to the east coast

Many of the "TV Go" versions of the Live channels are east coast feeds. You can filter by "Available out of home" or scroll to the very bottom of the TV listings to see that lineup.

Thats interesting and confusing for those in other time zones viewing away from home expecting to see primetime shows at 8pm or later their time.
