Xfinity Apple App and Watching on TV

Xfinity Apple App and Watching on TV

I bought a adapter/cable to connect my iPad to my TV. Turns out I can't watch shows streamed to the Xfinity Apple app-they're blocked. Anybody know why?

 

Thanks.

Re: Xfinity Apple App and Watching on TV

It's a media content protection thing (often part of the deal with networks as well) where items from a mobile app are not set to be displayed on a TV--they are made available for the mobile apps, while the TV has its own set of items made available for it.

I figured it was something like that. I only wish I had know that before I ordered my $35 Apple cable. Live and learn...

 

Thanks for the info.
