Roku question about services

Roku question about services

Roku and downgrading.I have Prefferred package, 4 Rokus in my house and up until tommorrow I had the prefferred package, have it available  and it worked great on the Rokus.However I am having to downgrade to a locals package special with HBO.When I change my package will it mess up the Rokus ability to get our new package.I am asking this as I am returning extra boxes as soon as downgrade takes affect,but wondering if I should wait to see if Roku works as it is now except with new package..

They should still work, but will obviously be limited to just those package channels.

 

Also, be aware that the Roku app is in Beta testing and is currently free to use as long as you have both Internet and TV service from Comcast. Once it's considered ready for normal use, it will amost certainly be treated like a CableCard device. It will cost $9.95 - CableCard discount fee (about $2-3 at the moment.)

Hi andyat1217, thank you for reaching out and I can confirm that you will be able to get your new TV subscription with your Roku as long as you are a  XFINITY TV (Non-X1 or X1) and Internet customer; or an XFINITY Stream package customer or an XFINITY on Campus customer.

 

Thank you
