HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel - Xfinity / Comcast not listed as provider in Samsung Tv App

The Samsung HGTV, Food Network and Travel Channel sends me to hgtv.com/Samsung with a code to enter under my provider. Xfinity Comcast is not listed here. Why?

Comcast doesn't have an agreement with HGTV networks (Food, Travel and others are part of HGTV networks) for 'non-portable' devices like Smart TV's and Roku. There used to be a workaround where you plugged in a web address, but modifed one part with the on-screen code, and it would activiate. That no longer works with the latest updates. If you try, you get a messge on the device that your carrier is not supported. I had to remove Travel Channel from my Roku.
