I am paying $251 00 per month and I think I ought to be able to watch the major networks anywhere. I have a hotspot using an Amazon fire stick. I downloaded the abc app and when I go to live tv it says not available through cox.
I am over on Reddit now(Until Cox can fix me). If you search Reddit you find a lot about this topic. Here is one thread. Seems they are doing it by vendor ID from the MAC addresses. All in the name of restoring box profits to the ISP IMO. Wireless boxes also mean a Panoramic rental. Win/Win for Cox but loss for customers.
PS. Here is a link to root your firestick to change the MAC address. It isn't for the laymen though.
