Firestick Streaming

I recently bought a firestick and connected it to a TV in my house which is not connected to our Comcast cable. Now I know you and amazon do not have any agreements, but is it legal to use and install the xfinity ap on my firestick and stream to my tv?

 

I know this question has probably been asked in the past, but things do change.

 

Thank you,

It's legal, but the Firestick is not listed with the other Amazon devices approved for use with the Stream App on https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/xfinity-tv-app-requirements.

adding... if you mean 'hacking' to emulate a different device to use an authorized service on a device (firestick) against the Digital Millennium rights act, no it is not legal.

I absolutely don't want to do anything illegal, but it's bizarre that I can stream my legal and paid for Xfinity on my phone, my kindle tablet, my computer and watch it on the TV that is connected to my cable but cannot watch it through the Firestick connected to my uncabled TV.

 

That doesn't make sense.

the current roku (not cube) devices work and are very inexpensive (free access during the public beta).
