I have Comcast and want BigTen2Go. I’ve downloaded the app, but they don’t show Comcast as a provider. Please help.

Any reason you don’t offer a Roku channel or Chromecast support for BTN2GO, I would happily pay for a Roku app, I just don’t get why you don’t do it. An explanation would be appreciated. staff on 11/7/2014 @ 1:05pm EDT Said:

    Darren, sorry for the delay and thanks for the feedback. We’re working on a number of things but instead of providing partial updates, we’ll share full updates on when we have it. Thanks for your patience.
