I have the same thing and no one at Comcast knows how to fix it. They basically said it was my computer. Which it can't be. I don't know how to get a fix of it without another ios update or going back to a legacy OSX version.

I was having the same problem with my iMac.    I did two things and error 422 went away.  Unfortunately, I don't know which caused the fix.    The first thing I did was clear all cookies associated with comcast.net and comcast.com.    The other thing I did was remove Avast Mac Security.    Rebooted and I could play video on Safari.    Hope this helps.

I have been working on Error 422 problems for a very long time. i decided to do this because I saw no one was having much success solving this problem.

iNative you are correct AVAST is a problem, you do not need to remove it just add an exclusion.

I found a fix for the streaming failure.... 422 error.  I my case it was AVAST anti-virus that blocked Comcast's server from streaming the content to my   Mac Book.  I added the server address:  secure.xfinitytv.comcast.net   to the excluded server list in the Web Shield preferences.  Now the streaming works on every channel...  By excluding the comcast server it allowed the stream to play in my browser, and no longer blocks it.... YAY!

If you are not aware of it Comcast provides Norton Security Suite or Norton Internet Security FREE OF CHARGE to customers. If you are interested post your computer type - PC or MAC.
And I will post links.
