Connect ipad to tv and watch xfinitystream content

I can watch xfinitystream content on my ipad and it works great. My question is can I connect my ipad to a tv and watch the xfinitystream content on the TV?

Nope. Only ways now are: a cable box, xf roku app, or using a pc, the streaming website, and a hdmi cable or casting hardware

I have a lightning to hdmi connector and an hdmi cable to connect the ipad to the TV. The question is how to get the xfinitystream content to play on the TV. It plays on the ipad just fine.

The app is programmed to block streaming if connected to an external display or if mirroring/casting is being used

That's really unfortunate. Thanks for the info though, I appreciate it.

Comcast appears to pay providers per TV attached to services and that would bypass their revenue collection to pay those charges, so it is restricted from mobile devices.

if the cable was 'out' you can still use the stream app for completed recordings, much of the on-demand library, and all the TVgo channels.
