Re: Newsmax

That much I knew. When I use the guide I don’t have 1115. When I talk to the remote I’m taken to xumo. The option isn’t there for me.

Okay so I’m in Western Pa. Xfinity doesn’t have a license for my area but they do for Harrisburg. It’s on xumo which is a free app. I’m watching it there.

Re: Newsmax

It’s so annoying watching it on xumo. It’s already buffered five times. People two miles away from me have Newsmax but I can’t have because I’m on a country lane?

you can use an app on a smart device or go to web page newsmax.com and click on the live feed (make it full screen).

Newsmax is an IP channel and in order to get it you must be on the X1 platform, which is probably the "higher level" you need.

Re: Newsmax

Newsmax was offered if you have the X1 platform free, but now Comcast has decided to charge you for it! What the heck?!?!

Nope not there. I was told it’s not offered in my area but two miles away it’s available.
