Re: Watching xfinity tv shows on my computer

What operating system and browser are you using?

 

Some people who have problems with IE have better luck with FireFox or Chrome, so try a different browser.

 

Make sure that you're using the latest version of Flash 15.0.0.152.

 

If you are using IE then go to View / Toolbars / Status Bar and make sure the status bar is visible; when you get the buffering message what does the status say? Something like "Waiting for abcxyz", what site or url is it stuck on? If you are using FireFox then install the Status-4-Evr addon which puts back the status bar that was removed a few versions ago and see what site or url that you're getting stuck on and post back.
