It's hard to believe this thread is over a year old and still unresolved.
I recently switched from a Tivo Bolt and Minis to an Xfinity DVR since it is required for plans that include Netflix. The selling point was that I could watch all the content using a combination of the Xfinity app and individual channel apps without having to rent additional boxes from Comcast. The Xfinity and Foxnow apps both let me watch Fox News live without having to constantly reauthenticate but neither one lets me easily catch up on Fox News shows (The Xfinity app doesn't list Fox News shows under Browse/News, and Foxnow simply doesn't have them on demand). Actually the more I realize how difficult it is to find on-demand sources for fox news shows outside their own app the more I'm starting to agree that Comcast wants to suppress them.
