What was your solution? I too am wondering why Xfinity stream cannot be accessed on Xfinity Flex.
Flex is for non-X1 service. If you have X1 service swap the flex box for an X1 set top box.
On the Flex FAQ page https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/xfinity-flex-faqs
is the text:
Can I use the Xfinity Stream app with Xfinity Flex?
Yes, you can watch purchased and/or rented content and premium subscriptions when you log into the Xfinity Stream app with your Xfinity ID and password.
So perhaps Xfinity should fix this if the stream app is not going to be available on Flex.
My reason for wanting flex with the streaming app is for a second location, so I can access videos from my main cable service on a flex system in a second location. With the app not on flex, I will need to buy a Roku or FIrestick and download the app. This makes no sense. Of course accessing via the xfinity stream app would be inferior to something more organically integrated with the Flex interface (i.e. if a user already has HBO from another Xfinity account, or if the account is linked, then just enable those video apps.)
