Discovery Networks app authorizations broken

Discovery Networks app authorizations broken

Not sure if this is a Comcast and/or Discovery Networks issue. Basically, when you try to authorize any of the Discovery Networks GO apps (Discovery, TLC, AHC, Velocity, Animal Planet) on a phone (at least Android) or Roku, the authorization fails when you pick XFINITY as the ISP:

{"code":400,"message":"Invalid Request","description":"Invalid and\/or malformed authorization fields: auth_ttl"}

Same problem here.  It just started.  Can someone from Comcast address?

I'm not sure who's problem it is either, but when you get the error go to the address bar of your browser and you will see the address it is trying to go to. Start from the left and cursor out until you see the auth_tll. Mine looked like the following:

 

&auth_ttl=1.2096e+06&

 

delete the e+06 (or whatever it may be on yours). After I deleted my auth_ttl field looked like this:

 

&auth_ttl=1.2096&

 

then hit enter and it should take where you want to go

Looks like they fixed it. I just authorized SciGO on my phone.
