I hope I am posting in right area. New Flex Box streaming user. What is crazy is Xfinity Stream app is not on the Flex Box. In 2018 I read an article that Movies Anywhere was going to be available on Xfinity. It is, on the Stream app. So why is Xfinity's streaming solution not include their own streaming service and allow customers to access their Movies Anywhere library (movies and tv) via Flex either direct as an app in the menu or by adding the stream app to the box?
Got the new Flex box for streaming content on my TV. Hold that thought.
Read in 2018 that the app Movies Anywhere was coming to Xfinity. It did and is found if you log into Xfinity Stream app.
Guess what is missing from the Xfinity Flex Box for streaming? Yup Xfinity Stream!
So not only is the whole Flex Box menu a pain to navigate because paid and free service is all mixed together, but the company's own streaming app which is very easy to use isn't even on there so I can't access my content on my TV, just on my mobile devices.
Is this going to change? Already knew I wouldn't get Disney+ but not even Xfinity Stream so I can access Movies Anywhere app (or even adding VUDU) is ridiculous. I now have to pay for a different streaming service that can link to Movies Anywhere if I want access.
I managed to fix the issue myself, somewhat. I do not have access to my whole Movies Anywhere library of movies and zero access to tv shows. I only have access to 23 movies (my library is significantly larger) and at least 1 movie I can't play due to an error stating I need a subscription yet it plays in the Stream app. I'm getting very frustrated and think this Flex box is a bad joke.

Flex is for non-X1 service. If you have X1 service swap the flex box for an X1 set top box.
