Xfinity not available on Roku for HGTV or DIY Network

I put in my code to add both the HGTV and DIY Network Channels on my Roku and Xfinity was not listed so I chose that my provider was not available.  The channel said that there were always negotiations going on to add providers for these channel services.  The channels were available for Comcast...what's the deal?

Please download the "XFINITY" Roku channel and you will have access to all your networks while connected to your home XFINITY network.

 

Absence of specific programmers typically means that we don't have a deal in place that allows us to authenticate on a particular platform. We're adding new apps all the time though so please keep checking.

The Xfinity app for Roku just doesn't work well.  It hangs and is very slow.  Even with the fast Xfinity internet connection, the video quality is not HD.

 

very disappointed.  The platform apps at least work. Would like HGTV to be able to authenticate with Comcast...
