Even if you do the EPIX trial on Roku you still need to subscribe to Xfinity TV in order to get the trial plus you are bypassing the Streaming TV App. I'm trying to make a point on how some of Comcast's decisions are plain and simply bad which will only accelerate customers leaving when 5G becomes readily available and the other better Streaming TV services.
1st) Designing the app to only work with comcast equipment or a Gateway is plain and simply ridiculous. Not all your users want Comcast to alter or modify their routing firmware and functionality which is only one reason I choose to use a modem/router combo.
2nd) Not designing it to be very similar to the phone app with the "For You" functionality is another one.
I am betting that the Instant TV service you offer requires this streaming app which if true becomes useless for me. (Plus the limit of only 2 recordings at the same time? Is Comcast serious?)

I assumed this app would be just like the android app since the android app won't "CAST" to my TV. I decided to add it when I found it on my Roku channel search. Once I found I couldn't do anything with it or view the EPIX free trial that I can get on my phone (Since it won't cast) I read all the details in the forum and discovered they designed it with a lot of unnessessary requirements forcing users to be more tightly linked to Comcast then they actually need to be. (Such as requiring either a gateway or x1 box) Isn't it amazing that no other streaming service requires this level of tie in?
