Screenshots for live tv on mobile app blacked out

I have an iPhone X. I tried to screenshot something on MSNBC this morning but the screenshot was blacked out. Every channel, same thing. Why is this? How do I change it? It’s pretty irritating.

Hello, @user_9298e2! Thank you for bringing this quite unusual case to our attention. We'll definitely see what we can do to help! Couple of quick questions: 1.) You're speaking of using the Xfinity Stream App, correct? And 2.) Have you noticed blacked out screenshots when using any other apps on this particular device?

XfinitySara.... still can't take Screenshot of Xfinity streaming shows.  Is Xfinity addressing this issue.  Screenshots did work previously.

Hello, how are you @user_exmzkt?I hope your day is going well! We'll need to take a closer look at the device you're using. Screenshots do not work on Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and when using an Android phone. I recommend trying a PC or Apple mobile device if possible. Then give Mozilla Firefox a try. It has a built-in screenshot tool that will work for what you need.
