List of AppleTV apps that have Comcast as a provider

List of AppleTV apps that have Comcast as a provider

Does anyone know if there is a place one can see all the AppleTV apps that have Comcast as a TV provider? Instead of trial and error I thought there should be a place (potentially already exists) where one can find out which apps are already listing Comcast as a provider...

 

Thanks for the help.

     Search "Comcast" in the App Store. 

 

     Good luck!

You can add TNT and TruTv to the list of enabled apps. They both have live features as well.

The NBC app no longer has a Comcast/ Xfinity login option. Now forced to use crappy Xfinitiy on demand. Can't wait to drop Comcast!!

Re: List of AppleTV apps that have Comcast as a provider

You can still authenticate using your Xfinity credentials. The weird thing is if your using the new Apple TV 4th generation. Apple implemented Single-Sign-On (SSO) authentication service. But Xfinity doesn't support it.

 

So when you downloaded the NBC app. You probably saw this screen:

 

sKHMgLAl

 

You probably hit "Allow" without thinking which then sent you to a list of providers who support SSO. Again Comcast isn't a supporter of Apple's SSO.

 

So to fix that. You can either delete the app and when you go to sign in instead of clicking "Allow". Click "Don't Allow".

 

Or if you still have the NBC app installed. Go into your Settings app --> General -->  TV Provider. There should then be a list of apps like this:

 

hKVUZwUl

 

When you click the app in this listing it will toggle between "Always" or "Never". Revert to "Never".

 

Then go back into the NBC app. Go to Sign In. And this screen should then pop up:

 

bQQLCjBl

 

Hope this helps.

 

Thanks, ddacons. I'll add TNT and Tru TV to the list. I'm sure TBS is also authenticated and has a live feature. I'll check when I get home.

This is so helpful. I have been looking for a list like this forever. Have you updated yours since this was posted?

No problem Smiley Happy

And yes. I do routinely update that same post as I find new apps allowing Xfinity authentication. Maybe I need to leave a date and time in that post to reflect that.

But I need to update it now anyway. Because Discovery Communications just made several new Apple TV apps for their other channels.

If you are looking for a way to logon to apps that are not necessarily supported like HGTV try this: http://www.idownloadblog.com/2016/05/04/how-to-login-comcast-xfinity-apple-tv-abc-amc-hgtv-history-t...

Re: List of AppleTV apps that have Comcast as a provider

EDIT: I spoke to soon. Comcast doesn’t support Apple’s SSO.

Not sure why they are listed under TV Providers.
