"Some content will be available ... outside the home". BALONEY! We pay a fortune to Comcast every month for internet and tv service. I'm currently out of town for a couple of days and want to watch some games. YES I CAN'T WATCH ANYTHING!! Thanks a lot, Comcast!!

Same here. I was able to watch the opening match yesterday on my laptop away from home, but today I can't watch Portugal v Spain?? Why not? Very unhappy.

Quality of Telemundo (added it to my Stream package) is horrible. Will this be improved? Pixelated images that are slow and freeze. Note that other video streaming services work just fine on the same set up.

Just one day free teaser to entice customers, I think this is a markering blunder. Too bad these senseless mistakes will make customer unhappy. I am totally done with Comcast now. Enjoying World Cup via ATT Direct Now.
