I was having the same issue.. You can actually just go on to the channels actual website, hit watch full episodes or live tv and the hit sign into provider and comcast/ xfinity is on there.

once you are logged into that online fire tv picks it up.

i tried to do this but I didn't have any luck. What browser did you use and where you at on fire stick when you did it?

Someone suggested just choosing various providers...well they automatically take you to the sign up page.

I don't understand how this question was posted more than a year ago and they still ah net gotten their act together. None of the option listed before worked. Even login in to the website directly it still doesn't pick up the fire tv app because it's a separate activation. Anyone have a better suggestion?

I found these links to work from a post here reddit. This was on android tv but should work for other platforms.

Just paste one of these links into a browser on your computer and change yourcode in the link to the code from the app e.g. T87PXNN

This worked perfectly for my FireTV. I went to the channel on FireTv and selected Watch Live TV. When it came to sign in screen, I used the links provided, and replaced the number/letter code on the TV screen with "yourcode" in the URL. I changed "Roku" to FireTV as well and hit enter. The links below are set up for FireTV, so you just need to replace yourcode with the code from the screen. Thanks oldlunchlady69!!!

The solutions listed worked until last week when HGTV posted an update to the Fire TV app.  After updating the app won't start with a message that my provider reports me as "Unauthorized user' and won't start.  No activation code shown so can't activate at all.  Same problem with ROKU.  My COMCAST subscription includes HGTV and other apps work fine (CNN, for example).  Any suggestions?

Still out of luck.  Can any knowledgeable Comcast employee offer any insight?  Or anyone else?  Please?  (I'm in the Boston area.)

Hi Rsolie, I have sent a refresh signal to your account, could you please recheck and verify if you are still receiving "Unauthorized user" message.

 

Thank you

I’m unable to locate Comcast or Xfinity when trying to log into HGTV or DIY through my fire TV still. This forum didn’t have any solution that works. Why isn’t Comcast getting it together?? How is it not even an option?

Thanks very much for the response.  HGTV on Fire TV now works.  ROKU however, no luck.  I still get a message that HGTV is not available for "my provider."  I'll send more details soon.  Maybe you can help.

You can obtain a new activation code by going to settings screen in the channel app (upper right corner) and logging out of the app. A new activation code will be generated at htis time. Use the URL method to log back into the channel. 

 

I can only log into one channel at a time, but that appears to be a another issue. 

 

Good luck.

This doesn't work anymore. You can enter the url and it will accept and authorize the app, but then you can only be logged in to one of the three at a time ever since the app update.

Hi Bodymax2003, I addressed this within the private message you sent. We don't have an agreement to stream content using other apps other than the Xfinity Stream app which is why you don't see us listed under the network option when you sign in. You must view these networks through the Xfinity Stream app only.

Xfinity will lock down customers wherever they can. Using only Comcast applications and streaming thru their servers is their business model. End of story.
