Linux not supported? Very frustrating...

My family and i have been with xfinity/comcast for longer than I remember, So when I fired up my new fresh built linux Home theater PC I was very dissapointed to see that I can not even use the servers that I pay for. I have seen other post on here asking about this, and have seen xfinity reps reply and say that they are not planning on supporting any Linux OS, My question is why? If you can access the stream platform from just about any other device, on any onther web browser, why not linux? the customers have been asking for the support for years now and it makes no logical sence not to support it.
