I decided to upgrade my Xfinity Stream service. My goal is to have TV everywhere I go with access to all channels I pay for. I want all the channels we all grew up to know exist, I want to login their app on Android TV (Shield), Roku, and Android mobile. If I pay for the channel, then I want it whichever way I entertain. Hey Comcast, this is what I do not like!
My channel packages
Kids & Family
Sports & News
Channel apps Xfinity cannot sign into
ABC (cannot live stream in Detroit)
Channels Xfinity does not have but advertise/list to customers as if they exist on their platform
Broadcast channels I pay for but cannot view the live stream on TV Go or their respective app
Xfinity premium channels discrepancies
Xfinity Stream on TV Go has 6 STARZ channels while Roku only has 4 channels
STARZ Cinema and In Black
Xfinity Stream on TV Go has 8 Showtime channels while Roku only has 4 channels
Showtime Beyond, Women, Family Zone, and Next
Xfinity Stream on TV Go has 8 Cinemax channels while Roku only has 4 channels
Cinemax MoreMAX, ThrillerMAX, OuterMAX, and Cinemax Spanish
Xfinity Stream on TV Go has 7 HBO channels while Roku only has 6 channels
Xfinity Stream on TV Go has 4 Epix channels while Roku only has 1 channel
Epix 2, Hits, and Drive-In
Available on mobile is TV Go while Roku is All Channels. On mobile while on home network the viewer gets to pick from All Channels and TV Go. There are inconsistencies in between both lineups. All Channels has some channels while TV Go is missing and vice versa.
Do not get The Movie Channel and save $10 because it is not available as TV Go and I cannot find an app. I do not like paying for channels that keeps me stuck at home.
All professional American sport channels are available on the Roku but not as TV Go nor can I login their respective apps.
Pro sport channels on Roku but not TV Go
More Sports & Entertainment package may solve the sports problem. If not, then I wonder who taught the executives business administration.
Other than that, Xfinity Stream and their respective TV brand/service is mostly good.
