Watching On Demand when traveling from IPad or laptop

Watching On Demand when traveling from IPad or laptop

I am traveling to the Netherlands next week.  I'd like to be able to view on-demand shows on my Ipad or laptop.  Can I do this using the TV app without controlling one of my TVs at home or am I limited to watching online shows?

Sorry, Comcast programming is only available in the USA, and is blocked from any other country due to program licensing requirements from the studios.

 

You will not get any online programming.

Thanks.  I was afraid of that.  Everything I've tried doesn't work outside of the US.  I was hoping that this would since they say "anywhere" in their marketing materials.

Hi all

 

So why is it possible for Slingbox ??

Was just on chat with customer service and really dissapointed in the level of information from Comcast.

Hopefully someone from Comcast would educate their call center which is probably outsourced.

Thanks
