Web Streaming vs Xfinity Android app

Web Streaming vs Xfinity Android app

From the Tv.Xfinity.com site, I can steam the TV Show named John Doe.  If I seach for the same show in the Xfinity TV Android app, it doesn't find the show.  Anyone know why the discrepancy?

Yes, Hulu (and CBS) don't allow viewing on mobile devices - only desktop.

Thanks for the quick reply.  Any idea if I can view the show on my Tivo Bolt?  I have a Comcast cable card, and can watch all my Xfinity channels, and On-Demand shows, but again, I can't find this show when I search.

That's outside my area of expertise but a Google search seems to indicate that there is a Hulu app available for TiVo Bolt which may carry that show:

Note that there may be an additional charge to subscribe to Hulu in this case (not a Comcast charge).

Probably, see https://www.hulu.com/john-doe. But as suggested, you'd have to sign up for Hulu. They offer a one week "free trial", then $8 or $12 per month (see https://secure.hulu.com/signup). Beyond that, I can't comment on it as I haven't tried it.
