Xfinity stream app freezes while scrolling through guide for live TV

For the past week, my Xfinity stream app will freeze about every time I try to scroll within the guide for live TV. Problem happens on two different phones, with two different versions of the Xfinity stream app. Any ideas as to how to fix?

Hi, @user_ad0e4a. I know how tough it can be to experience  issues with the Stream app. We've got your back!

 

Issues like this are typically resolved by reinstalling the app and verifying that both the app and your device is up to date with the latest software. 

 

Let us know if that works for you too!

@XfinityJay​ I have the same problem.  The uninstall/ reinstall didn't work.  

Everything is up to date, the phone and the app.  Something must have changed in the delivery end.  

Other streaming services work fine, i.e. Amazon Prime.

Nope. None of the quick-and-easy approaches work in this case.  Tech Support is also impossible to work with and of no help. Don't think I will ever get this fixed!

@user_f20410 - Oh no! I never like to learn a customer is experincing issues. Especially when you're trying to enjoy your shows. After uninstalling and reinstalling the app let's try this. If you hadn't already - go ahead and have one of the TV's "forget your network name" so that you're prompted to manually connect to your home network once more. Then please test the app once more and let us know if this helped. Thanks.

@user_f20410​ I gave some issue with xfinity stream app on samsung s10.  

interesting to note that on my Gmail account I can scroll very quickly down the list, and back up the list of my emails.  However not so much with the xfinity app.  freezes at around ch 66 or 68.. thereabouts.

Same issue here!  I have uninstalled/reinstalled the app from my fire stick and it still freezes up on channel 22 in the guide of live channels.  Unable to watch any live TV.

Yep same thing is happening to me but mine won’t let me get passed channel 11 without freezing and then closing itself out. I’ve uninstalled and reinstalled the app, I’ve rebooted the fire stick. This has been known to happen if I’m scrolling too fast but now idk.. it’s becoming very frustrating and I’m about to cancel everything with xfinity. No reason to pay for a service I can’t even use!

Hello @eburnsu! Thank you so much for reaching out to us. Appreciate your time and patience! Let's get this figured out. Has this been an ongoing situation? I was curious if other devices in the same room are connecting strong to the internet? It seems like there might be some connectivity hiccup. Being that the Firestick is normally behind the TV and the TV can block wireless signals.

@user_b365a1, I am sorry to hear that, what troubleshooting steps have you done? Just a friendly reminder, if you are ever experiencing issues with your equipment/services, you can troubleshoot your devices by downloading the XFINITY My Account app. You can also manage your account and appointments with the XFINITY My Account app or web link https://comca.st/3HmGHv9. I really love this app, I use it all the time when I have concerns with my services. The other day my services were acting up, once I ran a few troubleshooting steps I got my streaming services working properly before it was a bit sluggish. I highly recommend using this app whenever needed. I love that Comcast does an amazing job of making it easy for you to manage your account and services online.

I am also having the same issue. I scroll though any of the live TV guides on my phone and it freezes up at around channel 68. It's been going on for months and has been very frustrating. Uninstalling then reinstalling does absolutely nothing.

@abeatccast Hello and thank you for reaching out over our Xfinity Community Forum. I am so sorry to hear that you are experiencing the same issue, and I would be more than happy to help! To get started, have you yet tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Xfinity Stream App, or "forgetting" your wireless network and reconnecting to it, to see if that has any effect?

I can’t playback anything on the app as of this morning. I’ve checked for updates, restarted several times, and reinstalled the app. You need to see what’s going on with your app. There are enough complaints to warrant looking at things from your end

@user_d4a56e​ I absolutely agree.  too many people with same issue.  I suspect it's a bug introduced by xfinity.

My Xfinity Stream app on my Android Mobile Phone sometimes freezes when I scroll thru the Live TV All Channels List.

Xfinity Mobile Service Provider

Motorola moto e6 Mobile Phone with Android 9.0 Operating System

Xfinity Stream App Version 6.17.006

I tried clearing the cookies of the app, clearing the cache of the app, clearing the storage of the app, logging out/in of the app, uninstalling/installing the app.

I talked with Xfinity Mobile Care 1-888-936-4968 Level 1, 2 & 3 and notified them about this problem.

I was able to scroll thru the entire Live TV All Channels List of the My Xfinity Stream app on my Android Mobile Phone a few times each day for the last couple of days by freeing up memory and storage on my device.

Even so, this problem still needs to be looked into by Xfinity Mobile.

same issue here.  even sent a tech 2 to my house to review. 

Its in the streaming app he says.  (also said, its a beta version and free anyways, so just get a bedroom cable box).    he didn't offer to pay the $7.50 a month though.

I have had so many calls to customer service  and each time its " let me reset your modem for you".   they just read from a script. and look to close as many customer issues per hour as they can.  must be paid by the call.

@user_b365a1​ And I had a technician at my house one time who recommended returning cable boxes and using the app instead. It's been in beta forever. Spectrum Cable has an app that I have used elsewhere that actually works. Come on Xfinity/Comcast, fix your app!!!

Has anyone found a resolution to this issue?  It is now occurring on the only FireTV we have in our home.  Xfinity Stream Beta app freezes while scrolling through guide for live TV.  I have unplugged TV and de-installed/reinstalled the app etc as all have done before me.  What is Xfinity doing to resolve this issue.  Only choice to move a cable box to this FireTV is not acceptable.

I believe this is a known issue by xfinity.  they likely will not admit they introduced a bug.  too many people with very similar issue.

Same issue started with my tv today (in Roseville) and my sister's tv too (Modesto area). Scrolling through Guide and it will play only those first 20 or so channels, but then freezes and logs me out if I scroll further down the Guide. Worked perfectly yesterday.  I've uninstalled and reinstalled, turned off firestick and turned it back on, unplugged the firestick and plugged back in. Nothing helped. It has to be a known glitch, as my sister lives about a 100 miles from me and she's having the same problem.

@user_fbef50​ Had the same issue driving me crazy! My Fire sticks updated to the latest version of the Xfinity stream app over the weekend. I have not had a problem with scrolling through the channel guide since. It would typically lock up many times a day, appears to be resolved with the app update.  Will post back if any change.
