"Connect to in-home WIFI to watch." message.

I watch TV on a MacBook Pro, Chrome browser.

 

Two weeks ago I started getting a "Connect to in-home WIFI to watch." on SOME channels - such as MeTV (ch. 2) and CBS (ch. 3) but not ABC (ch. 6) for example.

An additional message says "Due to licensing agreements, some content can only be viewed on your in-home WiFi."

Call for support several times and they have no idea except to enable Flash but it is enabled ... and so is WIFI *CONNECTED TO MY HOME NETWORK, NOT XFINITY PUBLIC NETWORK*.

Make sure that you associating it with your actual home network's current WiFi broadcast name (SSID) (HOME-xxxx-2.4) and your home WiFi network's current password / network security key and not the public WiFi hotspot (xfinitywifi) broadcast name (SSID).

It is connected to home network.

There's not even a choice for a public WiFi hotspot.

Flash is set to ALLOW.

What is the SSID name your Mac is connecting to?
