Xfinity Stream App on LG TV

I have an LG 65" Smart TV with Xfinity Stream since August 2020 and the app has worked fine; within the past few weeks I have had the following 2 problems appear:

  1. Every 60-90 minutes while wacthing any channel, the TV will randomly exit the channel back to the xfinity app menu
  2. Several times an hour I will get the circle with the 3 dots indicating which "pauses" the live stream for 2-3 seconds and then the stream continues.

I have the TV attached to my router via Ethernet to ensure a good connection. I have 5 other TVs in the house the use ROKU and the Xfinity Stream Beta app w/o any issues.


I think the problem may be related to an LG firmware upgrade to v5.00.02

Xfinity version 1.11.5, last updated 4/20/2020


Is anyone having a similar problem and if so, have the been able to permenantly fix it?


Thank you in advance

I am having the exact same problem, and as stated I have 3 other TVs in my home, 1 with firestick and the other 2 with Roku and none are having this issue. I think it’s LG specific as well. Any help with this?

I have an LG TV and I am having a problem with not being able to use the features, such as, pause, rewind, fast forward or record and just now as I am typing this the streaming app just completely closed on its own.  This is very frustrating.  When will this issue be fixed??  I feel I was lied to.  I was told that this feature would save me money and works best and is the way that xfinity is moving forward without having to charge people for devices.  However, it’s very faulty and does not run smoothly at all.  Now I will have to raise my bill by ordering their boxes.

Same problem here. My LG TV has a wired Ethernet connection to the cable modem. My WiFi firestick connected to the same system does not pause.

The Xfinity Stream app is still in Beta for a number of Smart TV's, so bugs will occur along the way. When they do occur, we can build an incident ticket for the affected system and connect it to the account. We are planning to go with a full streaming option for customers in the future, once we're able to configure the app for all compatible TV's. Just to make sure we're not missing anything easily overlooked, I left details regarding device compatibility below:


The Xfinity Stream Beta app is available on the following LG and Samsung Smart TVs:


  • 2020 TVs with Model Codes LG SM, LG UM, LG LM, LG OLED *9, including support for models with the new software version WebOSTV 5.0.
  • 2019 TVs with Model Codes LG SM, LG UM, LG LM, LG OLED *9.
  • 2018 TVs with Model Codes LG SK, LG UK, LG LK, LG OLED *8.
  • 2017 TVs with Model Codes LG SJ, LG UJ, LG LJ, LG OLED *7.

Xfinity Stream Beta App for LG and Samsung Devices
