Can't stream live TV

Can't stream live TV

Trying to stream TNT to watch the Cavs play but I get this error on both Firefox and IE. This has happened a lot as of late. Is this the error 422 everybody is referrering to?

Re: Can't stream live TV

Also wanted to watch Cavs on my computer but 'm using Chrome.  Instead of an error code I'm getting a blank screen after it tells me that the program is rated TV-MA (for a basketball game?).  I couldn't get A&E live either.  Guess live streaming must be broken.  I haven't tried the Xfinity app on my Kindle Fire HDX but the Watch TNT app is working so I am at least able to watch (although I was hoping for a bigger screen to watch on).  We only have one tv and my husband is using it to play WOW!

An Error 422 will clearly say "Error 422".  My best advice is try this, it might not help but it is worth trying.
