Error TVAPP-00281

I have one working converter box and three other new smart tv's (LG OLED) trying to use the Xfinity Streaming app. I frequently (~50% of the time) receive Error TVAPP-00281 when trying to access content. What can be done to correct this?

I did find an awful, but effective workaround...if you start recording on the channel that returns the error, then go find the recording you can watch it. Clearly the content is available, but simply won't stream live for some reason.

what is the model number of your 'converter box'?

Thank you for the tip!  I've been getting the dreaded 00281 error on all local channels for a few months.  Typically, I just watch sports on the local channels.  The record/play trick isn't desirable, but it did serve as a much cleaner workaround for the error. 

 

My previous workaround was to stream it on a computer (no error 00281) and cast it to my TV.  Quality suffers a bit, but it worked.
