anything sports related requires "in home wifi" to watch...why can;t I stream NHL games?

I pay XF a ton of money every month. Now I can't watch any NHL games on XF steaming website Could not even watch "NHL tonight" as streaming. Anything sports related is listed as "in home wifi" only. I thought streaming meant I could watch all my Xfinity channels even when I'm not at home? Can this be fixed? FYI I paid extra for the entire season with NHL Center Ice package.

the owner(s) of the programming set their own demands in contracts and in the video DRM (digital rights management). Comcast sells subscription to home cable TV and streaming on other devices is currently a completely free bonus feature. You can still record programs and when the recording is complete, stream it ouside the home but only while still in the USA.

You can connect your center ice subscription with nhl.tv to watch out if home.

Xfinity is NOT one of the providers that are allowed to be logged into from that link. DISH, Direct TV, COX, Verizon all do, but no Comcast or Xfinity. It pretty much stinks that any of the other big providers let you buy Center Ice AND log in to the NHL.TV app and watch at home or on the go.....but not so much with Xfinity. You don't pay ANY extra with the other services to get both. So it is obviously an issue with Xfinity not willing to share the streaming service for some reason. 

 

The prices are exactly the same among all of the providers by the way....so it's clearly not a money issue.
