Why so few online tv options?

Why so few online tv options?

I subscribe to digital cable at home, but would like to watch live tv on the go as I travel a lot. But the online tv channel lineup has only a very few subset of the channels I subscribe to (http://xfinity.comcast.net/watch-live-tv/). Is there a way to get this to better reflect my subscription? It would definitely be nice to have more channels available to watch online live on the go.

Sorry, that's all Comcast offers for live streaming channels right now.

 

Some use a USB TV tuner in their laptop or iPad and pickup local network stations on the go.

Why can't they offer more for live streaming on the go?

probably the cost of the license.  Only cablevision has that functionality.

Meh, so they could add a package option to support the additional cost. Surely there'd be sufficient demand?
