XFINITY subscribers can watch anytime, anywhere? NOT!

New Poster

XFINITY subscribers can watch anytime, anywhere? NOT!

While visiting family in Canada, I sit down to watch some XFINITY.  All I got was a blank screen.  Xfinity proudly claims "XFINITY subscribers can watch thousands of XFINITY On Demand™ TV shows and movies anytime, anywhere, even when you are offline."  Last i checked, Canada, or if fact anywhere in the known universe, is anywhere. 

 

Does XFINITY realize anyone can set up their own little proxy server at home and add the proxy server as a device so XFINITY always think they are watching at home.  Such an immoral person might also give out the credentials to friends all over the world as XFINITY will stupidly believe they are all one and the same. 

 

Respect stupidity

 

P.S.  No need for a response. I'll take it from here.

Dear Sir,

 

Your assumption is erroneous.  I read the advertisment.  Should that not suffice?  Although the link is greatly appreciated, it was not needed.  We are happy as can be.
