Xfinity TV app on Samsung Tab A

Xfinity TV app on Samsung Tab A

I have downloaded the Xfinity TV app about 6 times on my Samsung Tab A and can't get it to work. Comcast wasn't any help so am hoping someone can help on the forum. When I try to open the app it sends me to my browser (Firefox) where it saves the tab and I sign in to my Comcast acct. and then it goes back to the app but will not open. I have started and restarted the tablet, still doesn't work. The xfinity Go app worked great and would love to have it back!

Can you change your default browser back to Chrome and try again? I suspect Firefox may be the issue here.

Re: Xfinity TV app on Samsung Tab A

Thanks, Dan. You were so right. I am just hoping I can put Firefox back as my default browser on the tablet. We shall see what happens when I do. You were very helpful. I was on Comcast support phone line today for a half hour and she was no help.

I'm glad that worked for you. Many Android apps are starting use use something called "Chrome Custom Tabs" for sign-in (Safari View Controller on iOS). You will likely run into this with other apps in the future but should have no problem switching back to Firefox in the meantime.

Yes, I put the default back to Firefox and was able to open the Xfinity App just fine. I really appreciate your help.
