If you’re an Apple TV user, you’ve probably noticed that certain apps do not let you log in with your Comcast Xfinity cable details. These apps include ABC, AETV, FYI, History Channel, Lifetime, HGTV, Food Network, Travel Channel, DIY Network and most recently, the AMC app, which was just released at long last.

This is frustrating for the cord cutters hoping to take advantage of their parents’ or a friend’s cable subscription packages. Thankfully, there’s a workaround that will allow you to login and activate an app with your Comcast Xfinity details.

Check out this guide from Ecoiv for details and links to activate your Apple TV apps. The same hack works for Xbox and Roku users by changing the url at the end, where it says “appletv.”

While they haven’t updated the workaround for the Apple TV AMC app yet, one redditor figured out how to use the workaround for the new AMC app. Follow these steps to activate your Apple TV AMC app:

That’s it! Your AMC app (or other app) should now be activated and working!
