Watching ESPN on Apple TV with Comcast Cable provider

I recently upgraded to ESPN Sports Entertainment.

I can watch ESPN channels from the DVR, but cannot select Watch ESPN from my Apple TV on another set with a DTA Comcast Cable box. A window pops up saying the Network is not included in my current television subscription. Contact TV provider. I call Comcast and they say they cannot provide any help with a third party system (the Apple TV). I'm thinking if I signed up for ESPN, it should stream over the Apple TV box like any other connection/link, like Netflix, Hulu and 30 other hooks that I'm NOT paying for. Is there something else I need to activate? Comcast Cable, Internet or Tech Support experts cannot help.
