De-authorize devices

I keep seeing some weird shows on my "Recently Watched" history. I have not watched them so someone is using my account to watch these shows. I have already changed the password and called Comcast. Comcast ran the "X-ray tool" and said they deauthorized all devices. However, that didn't work and anyone with an old device with the Stream TV app installed with an old password can still watch shows without having to enter the new password.

How can I fix this? I spent a lot of time already with Comcast on the phone.

Sorry you're having trouble. I actually see NO mobile devices or PCs on your account when looking at X-Ray (using the email address you used to sign into the forum).  On what type of device are you seeing the incorrect "Recently Watched" history?

 

"Deprovisioning" via the "X-Ray" tool (sorry for all these internal terms!) will always force users to have to sign back into the app.  There is a very rare possibility that the device you are using is incorrectly associated with another account - can happen if assigned a non-unique identifier.  After Comcast used the X-Ray tool, did it force you to sign in again? If not, that supports my hunch.  You can go into settings within the app or website (looks like a gear icon) and select "Sign out".   Then, sign in again and see if things are resolved.
