IPad and Xfinity Update

I have an old (first generation) iPad Mini that Xfinity wants me to update the streaming app.  The current version is apparently no longer compatible with my Mini.  I use the mini to view recorded programming from my X1 DVR.  What can I do?

What changed in a week . Why won't my iPad update a newer app? I pay monthly to get crumby service and they expect me to buy a newer iPad?

eventually, electronic devices age to point of being obsolete. The advance of iOS to version 14.0+ supports newer devices and drops support for older, outdated technology. eventually the apps themselves drop support for the older iOS versions too. I had an iPad mini 2 and had to upgrade (got the 10.2 wifi only at 1/2 the price of the iPad mini when new).
