Is there a workaround for Lifetime for the Amazon Fire Stick for Comcast users

Is there a workaround for Lifetime for the Amazon Fire Stick for Comcast users

Is there a workaround for Lifetime/History Channel/A&E for the Amazon Fire Stick for Comcast users?  HBO and Showtime are now aval, but these channels aren't.  And i've seen workarounds for AppleTV.

Re: Is there a workaround for Lifetime for the Amazon Fire Stick for Comcast users

I am experiencing the same issue. Up until about a month ago, I could use the A&E app on my fire stick. Now Xfinity is not listed as a supported company. This is beyond frustrating. We have to pay a FORTUNE for cable and they won't allow their PAID users to USE the programs! Come on Xfinity, get your act together.

I just noticed this as well as started get "Auth Error" when attempting to view some shows via my Firestick using the A&E App... When I signed out and then went to sign back in and noticed that Xfinity is no longer a supported Cable Provider.  However, I can download the same app on my Android device and Xfinity shows right up.  I don't know what the problem is between Amazon and Comcast, quite frustrating...

Since comcast does not come up for the fire stick option, I clicked roku and found xfinity as an option and logged on with the activation code showing on my fire stick screen. Once it went through I went back to my screen the activation went through even though im using a fire stick.

It connected me but still won't give me the option of full episodes (Vikings new season). Anything else I can do?
