Xfinity stream question

Hello, I'm a comcast internet costumer, meaning I only have internet services. Recently I clicked on xfinity stream tab and it took me to buch of live streams,  I'm not really interested in watching streams but I was wondering if there is a way to close or terminate those streams on my end? 

 

Thanks

So those live streams are not eating my bandwidth? That's what I'm worried about. Sorry to be so confused about it. Like I said I don't want to watch any of those streams.

I appear to have misunderstood your question. when you buy a cable tv subscription the streaming of the numbered channels, regular on-demand, and recorded programs do not count. viewing of 'internet apps' (clearly marked) does count as do apps for 3rd parties like netflix, peacock, etc.

Yes I know that but if you go to xfinity stream you will see many Live streams, those you can't terminate right? they are always there, its like a live TV program except that its on the internet right?

are they 'numbered' channels? (what are called linear).
