Fox News on Amazon Firestick

Fox News on Amazon Firestick

Downloaded Fox News and Fox Business Apps for used on Firestick.  I am an Xfinity Premium subscriber. Streaming function works for a while and then is locked with message that content is not being allowed by internet provider. This has result has been the same on numerous firesticks on different TV's.  Comcast denies the problem is on their end.  All other apps and functions on the Firestick are working just fine.

running roku on the Fox News app gives me 'Service Provider Issue' header with "your service provider currently doesn't grant access to this content. Please contact them for more details". (but I'm not logged in). When I use my iphone the precess fails using the safari app  Using the chrome app and cell data the screen comes up to input the activation code. not sure why safari won't work properly. In any case it isn't Comcast related it is the fox app(s).

Do you have a theory as to why the app would function fine and then cease to function? This has happened repeatedly with uninstall and reinstall of the app.

no not at all. I don't know what the system looks at for the Roku  to know it is already authenticated.
