Latest Homeland episode not available on Xfinity iPad app

Latest Homeland episode not available on Xfinity iPad app

The Xfinity web site for "Watch Now" shows that the latest Homeland episode (Season 2, Episode 3) is available for viewing, but, since I'm on an iPad, I can't watch there, I need to use the app.

 

But,  when I look in the app,  that episode doesn't show up in the listings. I'm sure it'll show up eventually, but would it be too hard to keep these synchronized? You call it TV Anywhere and Watch Now, so I'd really like to.

It's there and at the top of the list now.

 

I don't think,  when I was looking it was there at all. I saw a total of 17 videos, and now 18 are listed, so it seems that one was added.

Same problem... I look forward to watching Homland the day after it airs on my iPad.  It makes me so crazy when I'm away from my television and I'm expect the xfinity app to be up to date and work and it doesn't.

The licensing agreements between comcast and the networks are different for your tv on demand and the mobile or Ipad app.  It might take longer for it to air.  For example fox on demand does not show up until 5 days or longer for an episode.  It is all in the agreement between the network and the provider in this case comcast.

This is a difference between a web page on my iPad and an app displaying on my iPad. 

 

I understand how bizarre licensing can be, but, as a customer, frankly, I don't care. Comcast should either be transparent about licensing so we don't have to speculate and can have our expectations set appropriately, or fix it if it's EpisodeEpisode
