WatchESPN, CNN "Subscription required to watch"

WatchESPN, CNN "Subscription required to watch"

Really frustrate, seems like this is ongoing problem with Xfinity for time. I have extended cable and internet package and I can watch all the ESPN and CNN channels on TV. However, when I trying to watch that on my ipad with my Xfinity login information, an error message pop up that I need Xfinity TV subscription. I'm also getting this message for several network shows.

 

Seems like I need to call the customer service 10 times in order to get the problem solved which I should not be having at first place. If somebody have solved this problem please help.  Otherwise, I will shortly be pursuing other tv options such as Dishnetwork or DirecTV if this is not resolved, as all my friends with these providers never faced this problem.

 

Thanks !!

You need Digital Starter as a minimum to get the web / online versions.  Extended, which is an obsolete package doesn't do it.
