I agree completely. No other streaming app on my ipad or Galaxy tab block streaming to an external device like a tv. Netflix, HBOGo, Amazon Instant Video, CBS, NBC, ESPN, all stream the content just fine over micro-hdmi to any of my tv's. Comcast is the only one, and the excuse about licensing agreements with the content owners is a pure lie. Why wouldn't any other streaming app block secondary output like Comcast? This really stinks, and if I could get a solid satellite signal with ANY sat provider, I would switch in a heartbeat. I bought a Kindle Fire HD for my kids specifcally because we wanted to have all the Xfinity kids content available for them to watch in their rooms via hdmi. Of course, Comcast blocks it so that we would be forced to rent more boxes every month. Another horrendous executive-level decision from a company completely out of touch with their customers.
