Here, Comcast is just using a different mechanism refusal to set up a simple authentication process for the same end result preventing users from accessing the content they want on their own hardware. As you may know, we have come to agreements with Roku, Amazon and other third-party companies on these types of issues. I absolutely think this falls under the net neutrality umbrella. They're using authentication as an intentional obstacle, preventing its customers from accessing the content they want on hardware they own and bandwidth they pay for. Why do I even need to say anything??? But as many people obviously fail to read previous comments before making posts that have already been answered often numerous times over it's kind of painful to see you having to repeat yourself so many times, when revising the original article to include these arguments might have been much less work.
The part I don't like is forcing content through Comcast's platform. I would assume this has something to do with the partnership between Comcast and Microsoft. In this case, Comcast was the only company that couldn't be bothered quite intentionally to get relatively simple authentication systems up and running. What is your definition of net neutrality? So they can be dicks to people who don't want to live on Comcast's time table. Choose PlayStation 4 and then choose Continue. This is an issue of authentication. I am leaving Comcast in the next month or two.
I expect exactly what we get with this though, it's why Comcast scores so highly with consumer ratings. We managed to burn the building down before anybody else could, woohoo! I watched hulu and Fancast became Xfinity from the beginning. The app is lightning fast, fluid, and intuitive with a gorgeous user interface from top to bottom. I subscribe to the biggest cable company in the country and they're not listed? Charter do support Go on the Playstation network. They spend all their time in Congress fighting to get more money for Comcast, and then when their term's up they've already got cushy jobs lined up at Comcast. Please don't offer me tech support. Your Cable Provider gets to choose which devices to support.
Wow, that is fucked up. The network I support has an internet filter that can recognize secure traffic and stop it. Comcast is behind the times and doesn't seem to want to compete with the other competitor out there. Not necessarily, though they might be doing that. Way to continue to be worthless and difficult while Comcast laughed their way to the bank with my money.
People all insisting this isn't a net neutrality violation simply because they're using a different mechanism to the same end is really only beneficial to Comcast. Has anyone else had this issue with xfinity and hbo go? Select Activate Your Device to get your activation code. What is known of this continuing issues resolution? You could make an argument that it's anti-competitive, but that would be a stretch in this case. I pay for the service, So I shouldn't be limited or told how I can use it. That's one small step for a streaming service, one giant leap for cord cutting kind.

They're changing things later this year, though we'll have to see exactly what the offering is. How people are upset that I'm suggesting this is even part of the net neutrality conversation seems bizarre to me. That's the Net Neutrality I care about. I had a chat with a customer service rep who informs may they will take my suggestion for that. You seem to be showing quite a sense of entitlement. Again, it doesn't matter if Comcast is using a refusal to authenticate or throttling -- the end result is the same: They're using their position of power to prevent people from accessing content they pay for on hardware they own.
People know when they're not considered significant. I have to assume this has to do with some contractual thing, but some clarification would be nice. The clock is ticking, Comcast. It's part of the same conversation. These examples are closer to this issue than a discussion about violations of net neutrality: The Showtime Anytime app does not run on the PlayStation 4. I had a chat with a customer service rep who informs may they will take my suggestion for that. It's Comcast getting in the way of people using their connections and hardware as they see fit.
Now, Comcast is one of the notable holdouts from the. There is no rational reason that I shouldn't be able to use this app other than one or both of these two companies are being gready. The goal of course is to keep as many users as possible on Comcast's X1 set top platform and away from the most popular Internet video devices. This is very relevant from a high level perspective on why they're doing this and the impact it has, but it has nothing to do with these packets. I was going to sign up for starz, but since I do a lot of my viewing through a chromecast, I decided to subscribe with their new a la carte service instead of through comcast because comcast won't let you used their app.
