roku and stream tv week

I have internet only and I tried to use the roku app to view the available content during stream tv week. That fails telling me I need a "video subscription".  

If I use the flash app from a web browser, it works fine. I can view whatever content is available for free, including on-demand.

 

Why the restriction or maybe bug in the roku app?  Shouldn't it check for free limited time offerings like stream tv week?

Re: roku and stream tv week

 

 

Searching through old forum messages from 2017, I see that the Roku xfinity stream app was excluded back then. It's now 2019 and apparently roku is still excluded. Please consider noting the roku exclusion within the promotional ad that gets sent out!  In my opinion, Comcast should be protecting the content and not crippling the app that provides access to content!
