Xfinity Stream App on LG TV Sept 2019

Xfinity now has the stream app on LG TV’s

 

https://corporate.comcast.com/press/releases/xfinity-stream-now-available-on-lg-tvs

 

I downloaded it it to both of my LG TV’s (both are 2018+) and two observations:

 

1) the app only takes up 25% of the screen.  No other LG app I use (Netflix, prime, Hulu) have this issue.  Nor does the stream app on Roku using the same TV.

 

2) this far I can play no content.  It just constantly loads.  Thus far I have tried live tv on both broadcast and premium channels, on demand premium channels, and DVR content.  The roku app does not experience this issue.

Did they resolve your issue? Having the same exact issue. Was able to download the Xfinity Stream app on my LG tv and got it connected. I can browse the channels but it just loads after I pick one. As you mentioned, I also have a Roku and never had any problems with the that app.

I installed the stream beta app on my LG 65” SJ series tv today.  Turns out that the LG “point-and-click” remote doesn’t work with this app, though it works with Netflix, Amazon,...  Impossible to navigate and use the app.

I had the same problem. I was able to fix it by going into settings, then go in to general, go to locations. Set it to Canada. The TV will restart. Once restarted change location to United States. This will fix it, it did me me!!!

Hi Imortilla,

 

Which issue are your referring to in your response?  The inital inquiry on this thread or my problem with the remote?

Point and click does not work for me either. I understand this is beta but at least you would think I could use the arrows to scroll but that doesn’t work either! No AppleTV app so I’m stuck with Roku😡

Thank you! The app wouldn’t open once downloaded. Followed your instructions and it worked perfectly.
