Why can I not watch The Women's World Cup on Fox? I have access to Fox at all other times, but now I am restricted.

Watch Fox on Xfinity Stream or the Fox app? And what device. But try logging out then logging back in. I think Fox own FX and FX always log me out.

NO...I was at work. Were I at home, I would simply watch on my TV. The beauty of streaming is supposed to be that you can watch WHAT YOU PAY FOR when you are not at home.

Re: Why

I was watching from My xfinity at work. This isn't that complicated. Obviously xfinity has some contractual obligation to only allow access to these games only on a home network. My question is WHY?

Re: Why

Have you tried the Fox website and/or mobile app? It’s the broadcasters call what is allowed contractually to be shown on the app
