Setting default channel in Xfinity Steam app

How do I set a default (start-up) channel on the Xfinity Stream app?  I watch CNBC on the Xfinity Stream app on a Fire TV stick, and I have to push an awful lot of buttons to get to CNBC every morning.  Thanks

Hello user_d510eb


Thank you for reaching out! There is no way to establish a default channel, but you do have the options to set up favorites which is very popular. You will see the favorites' section on the left side of the menu bar. 


(Press the left arrow button on the remote to highlight the channel and press OK. Use the right arrow button to highlight Favorite. Press OK on the remote to add the channel as a Favorite.)


I also included a great link here below that has a lot of great FAQs for the Xfinity Stream on Firestick.
