Watching TV at my other home on a TV?

I am new to Xfinity. I was told if I bought a Roku stick I could plug it into a TV when I'm not at home and I'd be able to watch my DVR. I keep getting an error message that I need to me in my home WIFI.  Does anyone know why?

I moved your post to the Stream TV app area of the forum. The Roku is not authorized to use the Xfinity Stream beta channel when not connected to your own home Xfinity internet service.

Hello Jan_444, 

 

Unfortunately, streaming devices would need to be "in home" to use this function.
