I can't watch mine online either - HBO or Showtime. Says I need to subscribe. But right there in my online account profile, it lists HBO and Showtime.

I can tell you this.  before the new xfinitytv app I could watch anything now I can barely watch half what I use to, nothing on showtime works, most shows will show a commercial or trailer and then go to black screen. 

 

If your just trying to watch on your pc then it looks like your account on comcasts end is not coded correctly.

anybody get a reply from comcast/xfinity? and i swear if I get asked if I am a comcast subscriber  or am I subscribed to Sho/ HBO/MAX/ Starz I will lose it. If you have my account pulled up that info should be in front of you.
