I am a customer of xfinity as well but I also work for two other cable companies who as well have this same issue with Starz. Starz app not being compatible with xfinity is not an xfinity issue. This is an Starz issue. Starz want people to stream directly through them, they are trying to cut out third parties so they can profit more. Which they have every right to do. Having cable nowadays don’t make sense, streaming is way more affordable. You can customize your channels and pay for exactly what you want with out get a bunch of stuff you don’t need or want. Honestly unless you’re elderly or technologically challenged cable doesn’t make sense. In my household I have my elderly parents who are technologically challenged. They have a problem with knowing which input is for tv or firetv. Teaching them how to use the firetv device is troublesome in itself. That is the only reason why I still have cable in my house. I personally can be happy with just high speed internet phone line (because I work from home) and home security system. What I would suggest is to go over your cable plan with billing and if Starz is the main reason why you chosen your package downgrade to the package that carries only hbo and showtime. Then by the app directly through Starz. That way you can have Starz on the go anywhere. You won’t be saving much but you will get exactly what you want which sounds like you crave Starz on the go.
