xfinity streaming app on fire tv

I recently bought a Fire TV. the Xfinity Streaming (Beta) app freezes very often. The audio will continue but the video will freeze. This happens so often that it makes the app unusable. Please do not ask me about Internet problems as none of the other apps I use on Fire TV have this issue. Also, there are no Internet issues on any other app in my home wifi. I have uninstalled the Xfinity App and reinstalled it. Any further suggestions?

I am also having a problem with this issue. How do I fix it?

If you hit the play/pause button twice, it will unfreeze the video. I'm just annoyed that I have to do that quite frequently. Xfinity wants me to open up a support session with them. We'll see if they have any other tips. The thing is, I can tell that the app is the problem. No other streaming apps on the same TV freeze up like that. Their Roku app is pretty stable, too (even though it's also a Beta version). It's the Fire TV app that's a mess.

Same problem as described above. No other streaming app does this on this TV. Xfinity Streaming app works fine on Roku devices, phone and PC. Only happening on FireTV devices. 

Tired of having to hit press twice to resume. Sometimes it just hangs up all together. It is not an internet issue on the home network. Using direct wired ethernet to router.

This is going on for months and no solution. Please help.
