iPhone to TV Xfinity Steam

Why do I get an error message on my TV screen when I try to watch Xfinity Stream programming from my iPhone connected to my TV? I have no problem watching from network apps.

Because that’s how the app works. That’s a limitation that was implemented because of licensing , you’d have to hook up a pc/laptop via hdmi to your tv instead.

Thank you. Seems strange I can watch the programming on my little iPhone screen but they won’t let me watch the same thing on a bigger screen. There are a lot of things that don’t make sense and that’s another one.

you can use a roku device to view your entire subscription package while using your own home wifi. there is no charge to use the Roku with the xfinity stream TV beta channel.
