Network I would like to see on Xfinity

We recently switched to Xfinity due to constant outages from previous provider and would like to be able to watch the SBN (Sonlife Broadcasting Network) on Xfinity.  Will this be available soon and if not, why?

for those who don't know what this network is.

 

It's a Jimmy Swaggart religious channel

I'm in the identical situation - just switched to Xfinity - no Jimmy Swaggert (grrrrrr) - watching on laptop not convenient!  Hope other customers are calling  in!

Although Xfinity does not carry the SBN channel you can find it on Comcast through a “local lease station”. Typically you can find this in your radio broadcast channels. In the Chicagoland area it is called least access channel 115LA. If you have the voice remote the easiest way to find the station is by simply by clicking the voice icon on the remote and speaking into it, “jimmy swagger“. That should bring up his profile and a “watch” icon should appear (click on it and your set). If that doesn’t work, remember that the X1 platform includes YouTube (must have Internet for YouTube). You can stream SBNtv LIVE through YouTube for free on any television with a box. Best of luck. I hope this helps. I definitely helped my aunt who loves SBN broadcasts.
