Apple TV+ Won't Start

I have four X1 boxes.  One is a new XG1v4 I got last week as a replacement and Apple TV doesn't load on it.   The screen parks on the app logo and never goes to the content.  The other apps load on that DVR and I can get to Apple content just fine on the other three boxes.  I've power cycled the box and that didn't help.

Well, it happened again and there was a different, actual fix:

"We sent a provisioning signal to your equipment, which forces it to reinstall the firmware version and reconnect to our network. ... This typically happens after there's an update to the equipment, and it doesn't register properly with our network."

Something to remember for future reference.

Any idea what might be causing this?   I've power cycled and done a reset through the app.  Again, I get AppleTV+ just fine through my other three X1 boxes, just not this one.

Hello @BIslander Thank you for reaching out on our community forum. I hate to hear the AppleTV+ app isn't working on the new box. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app?

 

I no longer work for Comcast.

@XfinityJennifer​ ?  I am unaware that users can install apps on an XG1v4.  How is that done?

I also tried a full system refresh and that didn't help either.

Turns out I didn't have to swap boxes after all.  Direct messaging support had me clear local data, which fixed the problem.  Turns out I had to sign in to all my apps again, a bit of a pain, but better than getting a new DVR, which would also require signing in to all the apps again on the new box.
