Re: Streaming Problems with Xfinity App...and small screen size on Roku

I have an HP laptop. I am having an issue with streaming a movie on Xfinity app. It has a black line in the middle of the screen and the top keeps glitching. It's fine with Netflix, Amazon prime, Vudu etc. I have spent hours trying to get the issue resolved. Xfinity says it's a device issue but if that's the case then I wouldn't be able to watch other streaming movies from Netflix etc. I can watch regular TV. It's only when I try to stream a movie on Starz or Encore etc. I tried changing the resolution but still same issue. I can't help but feel it's an issue with Xfinity. It worked at one point but not on my smart TV. It's when I called Xfinity about my smart TV that it started glitching on my laptop

the Roku currently requires for HD that you have an X1 video subscription that includes "HD technology fee" on the bill (may be $10 or $0).  On my bill, it says my plan inlcudes the HD technology fee so I get HD on the Roku devices.
