Can't watch local channels unless I'm connected to home network – XFinity

Whenever I try to watch the local TV affiliates from my iPhone when I’m not connected to Wi-Fi, I get the message that I must be connected to my home Wi-Fi network. That kind of defeats the purpose of a mobile app. I’m wondering if this is a licensing or a technical issue. Seems odd that it would be licensing issue because when I had DISH network, I could watch all of the local channels remotely using only cellular data. Is there a way to resolve this using the Xfinity TV app?

This question, “Can’t watch local channels unless I’m connected to home network,” is about XFinity-Comcast TV Television Apps.
