Won't stream TV due to claim of being in Incognito mode when I'm not

Won't stream TV due to claim of being in Incognito mode when I'm not

I have been streaming TV onto my loptop using Chrome for a while now and the other day it was working no problem but today when I tried to play an episode (of any show) it claims it can't play because I am in incognito mode. However, I am not in Incognito mode at all. I tried opening and closing the browser. I even tried restarting my computer just to see if anything happened. I checked on the Comcast help and the only thing I found just said to open a new window not in Incognito mode but of course this made no difference becuase I wasn't in incogito mode to begin with. I tried to stream TV using internet explorer to see if it really was a chrome problem but with explorer the video would just sit there doing nothing saying it was loading. There is no reason that I can find for this problem to happen. Someone please help.

This exact thing is happening to me.  When I try to contact someone I experience some problem with my browser or the page won't load and I lose what I've written.  You all at Google have a problem and it is now OUR problem. Please fix it.  


Oh, and I tried to delete Google altogether, but Internet Explorer won't load and I'm afraid I will be completely S.O.L. without a browser.

Same problem here except I have a windows surface which only has (incredibly stupidly) internet explorer and it says I can't view the video because I am in "in private" mode which I am not. I have tried resetting my internet options but nothing has worked. This is becoming very annoying.

Hey what I ended up doing was uninstalling and reinstalling google chrome and that solved my problem.
