Streaming Away from Home

I have a Roku and I am able to watch Xfinity, while connected to my home network. Unfortunately I am unable to watch certain channels away from my home network. To do so, I am spending $69/mot for HULU. HULU allows me to stream more channels when not connected to my home network? I am not sure if this is a Xfinity issue or a Roku issue. When I call Xfinity to get a better understanding I get different answers but no answer has resolved why certain channels cannot be streamed away from my home network. I did try to respond to similar posts but I cannot seam to be able to respond. I can only read and like?

the xfinity stream beta roku channel is only for use on your own home wifi. away from the home the xfinity stream beta app is not supposed to work at all.
