I have TV Land in SD and HD. The HD is 4x3 however, except the commercials.
I hope TV Land does a better job of upscaling their SD than Pop.
My Comcast (Houston) is only SD. DirecTV has TVLand in HD.
The Xfinity app on the Roku requires you to be on the home network, so no out of home streaming.
I'm not sure what that observation has to do with that post.
But there are fairly simple workarounds to your issue.
You mentioned that if there is another third party device that can be used by the customer to receive the channles that can no longer be received with a cable card, then the cable company was exempt from supplying a cablecard, but that alternative seems to remove the out of home streaming feature, but you mentioned a workaround.
I'm not sure what the workaround is, but it probably doesn't have the concurrent stream limitations that out of home streaming imposes. I guess the workaround is a VPN. There is the potential for large groups of people to watch cable TV with one cable TV subscription. That's probably the reason the app is still a Beta app.
Comcast is under no obligation to support TiVo capabilities such as out-of-home streaming. I'm not saying it's good for the consumer. I'm just addressing the perception that the FCC requires Cable Card support.
IDK, I was just making up a random example to illustrate the question I was asking.
