Streaming Xfinity at a Vacation home

We have a vacation home where xfinity is not available, so we signed up through another ISP. I thought we could stream our xfinity TV through the Xfinity App on a Roku stick, but it apparently it will only work on our home Xfinity wi-fi. Phones, tablets and laptops will work fine. Is there a workaround other than plugging the laptop HDMI into the TV? Thanks

Only other way I know of is with some extra hardware like a slingbox
