We have a Comcast (CC) acct. in one place and are able to access/stream a fair number of channels by using a Roku and accessing some channels like TBS, TNN, TNT, Com Cen etc. Other channels can be accessed directly via the channel's own app - like HBOGO, watchESPN, TCM, AMC, etc. Most of the time, the first time (and sometimes periodically after that) you will be prompted, on screen, to go to your PC and log into, for example, CNN.it/activate. You will then be prompted to pick your cable provider (CC). You will then enter a code number that has appeared on your tv screen.
At some point I must have entered my CC info on computer the first time I did this, because each time I log into a new channel it auto verifies I'm a CC customer.
I cast everything from PC to TV via Chromecast.
CC is in Miami. This method has been used in Oakland for well over a year.
