Terrible quality xfinity stream

I watching live tv in the xfinity stream web browser, it has always been decent hd quality but the last 3 weeks or so its been terrible non hd quality. The issue is not on my end, I've tried all possible fixes, are other experiencing this?

Thanks

Commenting to see if there's any way to follow a thread.  Same issue.  xfinity speed test shows me 'blazing fast' should be able to play 4k video.  But the xfinity.com stream is awful.  Some channels aren't available for the tvgo workaround.  I'd like to know what the issue is for requesting a credit.  Same as others, any other streaming provider for the same channels - espn, nbx, fox etc. are HD quality and only xfinity the last couple of weeks looks awful.

I canceled xfinity tv yesterday. I use Fubo.tv now and its way better than xfinity stream.  Amazing how the xfinity support [Edited: "Language"], but I was able to go into the xfinity store and cancel tv and phone pretty easy.

Sad thing is xfinity stream used to be good until about 4 or 5 weeks ago.  Amazing the company Xfinity/Comcast does nothing to fix their quality issues.

I think poor management is the reason, just saying.

Now entering week #6 of this issue with no resolution. Even the Roku Stream App is lower quality and constantly buffering (hardwired to gigabit internet). I cannot believe that this issue is still persistent after almost a month and a half.

sorry to hear that my friend, I have HD again on xfinity stream website. Happened on Friday when I logged in after work. I purchased a fire stick and got HD on the “beta” version of xfinity stream app on the fire stick. 


Good luck. 

im located in <EDIT: Removed Personal Information> zip code. 

hope you get a resolution soon.

It's like a page of complaints per week. Sad. I added to the list back on page 3, and you've been spot-on since page one so thanks for your efforts and comments.

Minor update - when a live tv stream first opens, the quality is still the usual garbage. After 25-28 seconds (I timed it a few times), the picture sharpens to what I would call SD. I can almost see the puck!

Desktop; don't know about Roku, etc., as I didn't try yet.

I have had the same issue over the past 4 weeks. I called support and they couldn't help. Doesn't matter what web browser I use. I cleaned everything, cookies, temp files, etc. Nothing seems to work.

Here we go again... Yet another new employee in here stringing us along with "troubleshooting measures" like there's not a massive thread about the issue that has persisted for weeks and still has no official answer from anyone other than "we're working on it". Anything posted by an employee in here that's not a concrete response to the issue is an absolute waste of time.

Still No Resolution for me. Roku, Web, Pixel 4 XL all stream YouTube, Hulu, etc. fine. Xfinity Stream would not play anything for me today (Sunday). Zip is 95928. I am seriously thinking about another provider.

Its funny, I was actually able to kind of watch the football game last night after all this time. Just to log in today for the Celtics game for it to go right back to the way it was. This is insane what is the issue here? I know its not on my end I've had someone come out here to confirm it....Is there a timetable on a fix?

I am getting so fed up with paying a fortune and then not being able to watch TV in my bedroom at night because the streaming through Roku is so horrible!  The last month has been horrible, and it was completely out for a few days.  What the heck is going on?  If this keeps up, I might as well just drop Xfinity all together and stream through third parties - because that is basically all I can do now!

Amira please review this thread and the related thread detailing the known issue in which the live tv stream video quality has been dramatically reduced for all customers. This issue has been ongoing for several weeks with no resolution or update on a fix.

Anyone in this thread, please refer to the other thread regarding this issue "Xfinity Stream no longer HD". I was told by an employee that although the issue is known, there is no priority for it since the number of posts in the forum is relatively low compared to the entire customer base. If you want to see any change any time soon, I guess you're supposed to DM someone (AGAIN) to let them know that you're affected, so your account can be associated with the issue officially. 

Welcome to Week #7 of this issue, and apparently there's still no end in sight.

May the odds be ever in your favor.

Not only am I getting terrible resolution certain channels like FOX 5 DC works for a few minutes then a green screen with only sound but if I use the TV to go link the channel works fine so again its a Xfinity stream problem that doesn't seem to get fixed.

Week #9, still terrible, but there will never be a resolution. According to employee posts on other similar threads, it is a known issue, but there aren't enough "tickets" for it to matter, so they frankly just don't care to fix it. What an absolute joke. You are stealing money from customers by robbing them of expected quality and acting oblivious to known tech issues. I am escalating this customer service issue to the Better Business Bureau and am actively seeking out alternatives to your horrendous service. I have never dealt with such an inept customer service department and a completely incompetent technical department. Figure it out.

If I use foxsports.com or paramountplus.com the streaming quality is perfect.  If I use xfinity.com/stream/ the quality is horrendous.  To me, it is obvious that Xfinity is being limited by Fox and CBS so that people sign up for their services.  This has nothing to do with network bandwidth on Xfinity's network.  It is the reason that Xfinity is not fixing it is that they can't.  It is probably a contractual agreement in order for Xfinity to carry Fox and CBS at a given price.
