I'll pile on here as well.  Have been streaming without issue unitl TODAY.   Now, every station I attempt to stream stops after a (very) few minutes, with this same 8007 Error ("Video cannot be played" and "Sorry <station name> cannot be played"). 


Again just started - no issue at all previously; and, no change in system confirg, setting, hardware, router, security / firewall, etc. - the system & network here remain as they were before when all was fine. 


Config is:  Lenovo workstation with 24GB RAM, running System 7 Professional (all current SPs and updates), streaming via Firefox (all current), hardline into Xfinity modem / router.  Last speed test, just now shows 125 Mbps download & 12 Mbps upload.  No other services (NetFlix, AMZN, Hulu) struggling; and, everything else healthy and happy - just you folks gakking. 


Final note:  This really stinks folks. There are multiple support forum threads running today on this issue / error.  Appreciate someone from Comcast weighing in and resolving.
