TBS and HBO won't authorize

TBS and HBO won't authorize

I have an HBO subscription, and one for TBS, however, Xfinitiy keeps telling me I need to subscribe.  I keep signining in and out.  I was watching a program and it just crashed and then asked for authorization.  Now I can't watch a program.  I can still go to HBO Go and watch HBO, but can't watch TBS unless going through xfinity.

Me too - also Starz and Showtime.  On another computer it doesn't say that, instead trying to play a program tells me I need to install Silverlight, which is already installed and at the correct version.
