When trying to watch a show on the app Crackle (offered by Xfinity) - it asks me to activate on their website with a  code. However, the code doesn't work and Crackle says Xfinity needs to update the app on their platform. The code Xfinity offers is a 5 letter code and needs to be 6 letters or else that proves the app needs updating and Crackle can't activate until that happens. I can watch it by going in to my LG TV menu, but not from the XFinity menu which is what I use of course with the Dvr and box. Is this being addressed by Xfinity, or why even offer it for programs? thanks

Can you log back out of crackle as since its a free on demand subscription through Xfinity its should not ask to activate a subscription

@XfinityOrlandoM​ I am now not able to get to Crackle through Xfinity at all. Whether from the Apps menu or through a show episode that says 'play on Crackle', I click on Crackle and it just times out to a blank screen evenutally. I have to go back to 'last' to get back to Xfinity menus.
