Starz Roku

Starz Roku

Why is the video quality so poor trying to watch Outlander using On Demand on Roku? Only happens on Starz programming. Also, why does On Demand have all four seasons of Battlestar Galactica but only two seasons on Roku? If we're going to be charged for Roku at some point, shouldn't Roku have the same functionality as a set top box for the most part?

Comcast doesn't control what's on roku

I may have confused some folks, but I'm using the XFINITY app on Roku, so Comcast does control the quality in this case. I saw other posts with the same issue but I don't recall seeing a definitive answer from a Comcast employee.

They do in this case since I'm accessing via the XFINITY roku app.

Sorry, I was thinking netfix on X1

Re: Starz Roku

I must have replied while you were editing you're initial response. I'm hoping a Comcast employee chimes in to explain why Starz streaming quality is so poor when using the XFINITY app on Roku.
