I click on the icon to go into the app.  I have an apple account but do not see a place to sign in.  When I try to go in under set up free trial, I get the verification code, enter it through the phone, it says I am set up and my screen will refresh, but then the TV shows a message that says I was signed out of apple tv and it kicks me back to the get the verification code screen ........... Please help

@ferretgirl​ I'm having the same issue.  Go to sign on in mobile device, get the authentication code, says the page will refresh and then it says I've signed out.  Tried 4 times.  Looks like I'm not getting in. 

 Annoying!!!

The first episode of For All Mankind is not loaded correctly. It’s actually Episode 10 from Season 1. Can Xfinity fix this please ?

We apologize you are experiencing issues with the Apple TV+ show "For All Mankind". Unfortunately, we have no control of the content in this app, we simply provide the app on our platform. Once you are logged into the app everything is then supported by Apple. If you have concerns about specific content in the Apple TV+ app you will need to contact Apple directly.

@ferretgirl & @user_55hju8 

We sincerely apologize you are experiencing issues when attempting to authenticate your account via the Apple TV+ app on Xfinity. Below you will find the full directions on how to complete this process. 

Sign Up and Log in to the Apple TV+ App on X1 and Flex

@XfinityJessie​ This is not the solution. If you notice in your very last screenshot it says that your TV will refresh - that is where the problem exists. When it refreshes, it logs us out, and tells us we need to login again. When we select the option to login again, it takes us right back to the screen with the activation code or QR code options. This happens continuously each time we login, hence the endless loop. The trial version of the app seems to work fine but the full app does not allow users to login.

I have the same problem. I cannot get out of the loop you're describing. Apple knows my TV and has verified it, but when I try to watch Apple TV, keep getting sent back to verify again and again. It's very discouraging--NONE of the other apps do this.

I’m also having the same problem with the endless loop after authenticating on my TV.

@AB95​ edit to my original post - appears that the engineers have corrected the issue and the login loop has been eliminated. Thanks Xfinity!

Same issue here.  After the tv refreshes, it automatically logs out of the app and then requests to login again to access app.

Hi there, @user_274f05. Thank you for creating the comment. Just to make sure I understand, this happens when the cable box updates?

I tried to sign up and it sent me a link via text. I did the steps to set up an account, but was never sent the verification code via email. I checked the spam folder and my email server. It never arrived. I've been on the fence about subscribing to Apple tv so this was an opportunity to try it. Sad that it doesn't work and it's too complicated.

Hello @threadmaster, thanks for reaching out for help with your Apple TV account creation. If you have an Apple device you can try signing up through Apple, and then using that login through the Flex App. Also, have you tried using the QR code instead of signing up through the app?

Using the QR code got me out of the endless loop!

This WORKS, folks! I was so relieved after getting all kinds of complicated responses to my own post. The first time I tried it, it didn't work. But this time...pow! Went right through. I was so happy! Thank you @Lisa5326!

I was able to sign up after much frustration.  I already had an apple id because I have itunes on the pc.  I logged in, did the QR code and then it wanted a code that was on my Apple Device.......ummmmmm......I must have an apple device to sign up for Apple TV?   Fortunately, I have an old ipad mini (hated it), I had to blow the dust off of it, pray it would charge and finally was able to get a code off the device to input to get access.  Shouldn't be that hard!

@pmelville204​ you don't need an Apple device, just an Apple ID. I don't own a single Apple product and had no issue getting signed up with a Gmail account and signing in to the app on Xfinity or on my Samsung phone.

Everything I read said you did not need an apple device, but when I signed up, logged in with an Apple ID (it wouldn't let me use my regular email, had to be an apple one) and then a box would pop up that I needed to input the code from my apple device.   I wonder if it had something to do with the fact that I hadn't used my apple ID in quite a long time?

@AB95​ All due respect, I have only android and when I got to almost the end, it said "I needed an Apple device" and wouldn't let me go further.  This with the X1 box.  Signing in on Firestick or Roku, I don't need to use my mobile device, it lets me in.  But I'd like it on my X1 box.  As said above, it shouldn't be that hard.  Why can't Comcast have the same sign in method as Firestick/Roku?
