Whats the trick to getting Xfinity TV G0 to cast to the Chromecast from an I phone?

Netflix, Google casting apps, all work fine.  Xfinity TV Go will not cast my movie purchases.  Anybody know the trick?

No "trick" to it, just plain physics.  Xfinity's system is so overloaded there's not enough available bandwidth to service the number of customers demanding service, so, it bogs, you watch data faster than the bogged down system can provide it and your video runs, balks, buffers, runs, balks, buffers, over and over and over until you give up and go do something else.  Notice how HD video plays on really high definition YouTube from Google's massive servers for hours, but Comcast can't play the ESPN2 girls high school softball game from Peoria few people want to watch?  Your bandwidth has plenty for HDTV on YouTube, so it's NOT YOU or your local system overload, this time, it's Xfinity's overloaded system that never gets upgraded.....plain and simple logic.
