Xfinity app on Roku will not work.

I purchased a Roku Streamstick+ today solely to use with Xfinity Stream. I have yet to be successful in making it work. The app starts up, then says “initializing” and never makes it past that. Sometimes it gives an error and other time it initializes indefinitely.

I have an Arris SB8200 and Netgear Nighthawk x6.

I would greatly appreciate some help on this as I am planning to use this as my only method of watching tv.

are you at home connected to your own home wifi (not a business TV nor internet account)? Do you pay for a cable TV subscription for video? do you have a working X1 set top box in your home?

Yup, have the 4k dvr box in the living room. I've been using the app with zero problems since the launch in Feb 2018.
There is no error message, it loads up the Xfinity beta app screen. Then it goes to initialize and stays there until it says, can't connect try again.

I got the ultra sticks. I did reset the router and that cleared everything up on my end. We are good to go now.
