Hello, @user_305e11. Thank you for reaching out about the Amazon Prime NFL game on Thursday nights. I am sorry that has been buffering. I know trying to watch a game like that is impossible. Are you using a the cable box Prime app, a Firestick, the Prime app on a TV, or another device to watch? Do you notice any issues with any other programming or just the game?

Thanks for letting me know this is the app through the cable box and not happening on other apps, @user_305e11. I also see @user_c5a1e3 is noticing this during other programming in the app as well. If you or anyone willing to try in this thread, exit out of the Netflix app, press the A button on the remote, and select Reset Netflix does that resolve the problem? You will need to sign in again if you try this step.

Is there a fix for this issue. Trying to watch game and constantly buffering. Anything I watch on Amazon on TV is buffering. Netflix works fine. I already did a full system reset.

I have the same issue and the prime video app on comcast keeps buffering between episodes and during episodes.  Is there a fix or is comcast giving everyone the run around again.  And please don't ask me to "chat" as clearly nobody is fixing this ongoing issue.

Hello there!
We're sorry to hear that you're also experiencing some trouble with the Prime Video app, that's where I watch Grand Tour! So I'd be in quite the pickle myself too if this were to happen.

We appreciate you taking the time to reach out and bring this to our attention!
May I ask, are you attempting to watch the app using a device such as one of our TV boxes, or perhaps attempting to stream it via your Xfinity network there at home via another device with the downloaded app, such as a roku, firestick etc?
There types of questions will help us determine whether it could perhaps be the network itself, or even just the application functionality! 

We look forward to helping!

Hello, I didn’t see a response to this question. Or any of the others like it. Like other users I too am experiencing ONLY Amazon Prime taking a long time to load and buffering while watching episodes or movies on it. I do not experience this with Netflix, Hulu, or Peacock. It’s only on Prime. And its on multiple tv’s each connected to separate cable boxes. I’m watching the Prime app through the Xfinity cable box. I restarted the cable box and replaced all the HDMI cables with Ultra Premium High Speed cables and still have the same issue. It’s so bad sometimes that it will display the message the show can’t be played right now.

What is the next step in troubleshooting this issue? Is there a cable box equipment, firmware, or router upgrade available? The box I have is XG2v2-P. Thank you.

Thank you for reaching out to us here today @user_a7bca7. Have you also run through the troubleshooting step on the Xfinity app as well? In order for me to check on your cable box I would need you to send me a direct message with the full name and complete address for your service.

   Click the "Direct Message" icon or  https://forums.xfinity.com/direct-messaging

   Click the "New message" (pencil and paper) icon

   The "To:" line prompts you to "Type the name of a person". Instead, type "Xfinity Support" there.

   - As you are typing a drop-down list appears. Select "Xfinity Support" from that list.

   - An "Xfinity Support" graphic replaces the "To:" line.

   Type your message in the text area near the bottom of the window
