Xfinity Stream APP on iPhone

Using Xfinity Steam TV App on my Xfinitywifi away from home on my iPhone I could not watch live TV on CBS.  It said I had to be in my home network yet other networks like NBC were able to be viewed?  Why can't I watch all stations on Live TV away from home?

The rights to stream content away from your home network (called "TV Everywhere" rights) are negotiated separately and not always available.  We've been able to secure those rights for NBC and ABC in markets where the parent network owns the local station (typically the largest markets such as LA, Chicago, NYC). CBS does not allow us to do the same.
