Hello salemparks1, the information that (mvenanzi) provided is correct. You must be a TV subscriber to view shows/movies online, you don't have to sign up for a TV package but you can sign up for premium channels like HBO, Starz, and Showtime a la carte with any internet package and you will have online viewing access.
Comcast has to make deals with the various networks as to what is available for download. Many networks won't allow it due to the fact it makes it easier to pirate (once they have a full copy, they could break the encryption.)
There's actually no need to sign out and back in. We checked your downloads back in remotely, so they should be available for re-download now. Signing out before deleting the app is definitely the way to go, but it sounds like you weren't given that opportunity when updating to iOS 11. Sorry for the trouble!
krschill, the best way to stream any content is by using our "Xfinity Stream" app. We are not listed as a service provider on the MLB at Bat app. The original concern in the thread is focused on watching any content within your "home network" while using the Xfinity app. If you would like to watch MLB games please download our app and you will be able to do so while connected to your home network. Viewing the content outside of your network (away from home) is were the restrictions come in.
I'm hoping someone knows of a fix for this issue. Every single show that I download to my iPad has periodic skips in video. The video timer does not appear to be affected, but the video will skip forward a few seconds. This only happens on downloaded content. Recorded content played back on my X1 box plays normally. Recorded content streamed to my iPad plays normally. Only downloaded content has this issue. I've tried removing and reinstalling the app but the issue still persists. I travel a lot and streaming content is not always an option so I usually have to download my shows and this skipping is extremely irritating.
First thing I would try is to completely power down your iPad. Have you installed the latest updates on the iPad (iOS 11) and the latest Xfinity Stream TV app version?
