Can't play Xfinity TV App audio in background while using another app or with screen closed

Until recently I used to be able to play an Xfinity TV station's audio in the background while I either used another app, or had the screen closed to save battery while I am walking or running or cooking, etc. Now this is no longer possible. A month ago, in an Xfinity chat room, an Xfinity rep said Comcast is aware of the problem and will soon fix it. As of today, 10/26/20, this has not yet been fixed. It is very frustrating! Why can't you fix this Xfinity??

my androids won't do that function. iOS 14+ makes you do an extra step after locking phone. touch screen and press shown play button to resume audio.
