How would Comcast even know I'm trying to cast to a Roku? Otherwise, comcast needs to embrace other platforms for content delivery. I'll admit this is a potential explanation for it not working, although I don't understand why I would be able to successfully register the Roku in that case. How would Comcast even know I'm trying to cast to a Roku? You'd feel youself ill-used if they just broke their terms to please themselves. If it did, but failed out in same way, I'd understand. Then the video starts to buffer and at about 50% buffered, you get the error. Authenticate, and see what happens.
