DFPLN3001 error code whenever trying to view available plans/services

I am being redirected to this webpage https://www.xfinity.com/buy/plan/message/DFPLN3001 with a message, " Hi, it looks like you are a Netflix customer. Please call us at 1-800-XFINITY and we can help," whenever I try to view availble plans and services on my Xfinity account. The support didn't really understand what I am talking about, and have suggested I just use the X1 box to make service changes. This issue seems to be quite common according to the posts I have seen on this forum, and they all relate to Netflix. I have updated the primary xfinity account email to my comcast.net email, and the netflix account email to it aswell, but still receiving that message. Any ideas as to what I can do to resolve this?

I have the same exact issue, I have literally spent 8+ hours on the phone and have not been able to get it fixed

Yeah, I hit a brick wall too. No one really knows why it does that. Gave up on fixing it at this point. All I want to do is just be able to view available plan upgrades on my own time, without having to take up the rep at 1-800-Xfinity.

This is ridiculous.  I’ve been on the phone w/customer service for this issue for well over an hour now (multiple reps).  At first I was told that this is a new issue they just heard about, but Google’ing the error shows that it’s been going on for at least a year.  I can’t add the $5.99/mo service (advanced security) I’m trying to add— it keeps bouncing over to this NETFLIX error page.  Same results for trying to view My Plan.  They seem to want to blow it off by saying they are working on it— to come in to the store for any changes, or (worse) they can offer the service over the phone for $15/month since what I saw is only an online web promo.

 

FWIW, I suspect their back-end is having this problem for users that recently changed their primary username and/or other key account data— maybe it updated some systems (what I can see online reflects my changes), but not some of the other back-end systems/databases and the provisioning of the new add-on service fails out.   Did any of you recently change your account/username info before this error started?

"down for maintenance"?   This has been broken for over a year, and no progress has been made to fix it.  It's not something that's down for some maintenance procedure.  All posts lead to "please private message me".   Can't you guys fix this?

I job is to work for you and make you happy!

This happened to me today when I changed my service plan with Xfinity, which now includes Netflix.  This seems to be related to new service offerings including Netflix that now affect a customer's ability to Manage Your Plan online.  This looks like a significant bug in Xfinity's management systems, what is the ETA for this being fixed for your customers?

I'm seeing the error, as well.  Just changed my plan- it now includes Netflix- similar to what others have reported.

Seeing the error code here too.  And this is nothing new.  It's been this way for months (if not years) because the landing page is the same one I've gotten forever when it comes to changing services. 

 

The page is titled "Sorry" -- perhaps as an ironic joke -- and the only real content on the page relative to my intent is:

Looks like Netflix is part of your plan.

To make any changes, just call 1-800-XFINITY.

 

which, of course, is thoroughly unhelpful.  Also included on the page are links to actual extra services which I don't subscribe to whose links work perfectly well.  No indication other than the title that this page is in any way erroneous.

 

Given the pernennial non-functionality, I'd venture that the undlerlying idea is to make it as convenient as possible to add/upgrade and as inconvenient as possible to change or downgrade.  Call me a cynic, but when the page doesn't work this long, Comcast is no longer really "Sorry" about it as the page title might claim.

It seems to me that they are using this to get some free advertising. I'm wondering if I can get a rebate on the services that aren't being provided. Calling to have a customer service agent change something I'm paying for doesn't seem quite fair. It takes some of my time to get help that I could do myself. You are asked by the CSA if then can "help" you with other services. Just another way to upsell you. I sure hope they are getting a lot of extra service for our inconvenience.

This is such a pain. I cannot believe it has take so much time to fix this issue. I finally spoke to someone that sounded like he knew what he was talking about and it made sense.  He told me the error message keeps coming up because I need to finish setting up my Netflix account through the Xfinity app.  Once that's done then my Xfinity account should update itself.  You have to be in front of your television to do so.  Unfortunately,  I'm at work right now so I have to wait until I get home.  Hope this works.

Can you advise what setting needs to be updated. I don't see anything that needs to be changed.

Despite what the above employee states, I can tell you that: 1) I’ve been on the phone and in chats with xfinity reps too numerous to count since Xfinity added Netflix. I mean, this problem has persisted, unresolved, all this time; <br><br>2) Without exception, every time I reached a breathing person, I had to kiss AT A MINIMUM (and most times, WELL OVER) an hour repeating the very same things each rep told me to try, with absolutely no success whatsoever. At the end of the very lengthy and painful contacts, the ONLY things I had to show for it were- a) the loss of several hours of my day; b) soul crushing fatigue; and, c) a massive migraine. And at the end of that torture, the rep, seemingly oblivious that I’ve been held captive by then for one to three hours, then offers to give me the prices for any bundle I wanted. (You can see the problem here because those of us with this error cannot see ANY offers available to us without signing in, which as you know brings up the selfsame Netflix message; and,<br><br>3) I speak from experience because I’ve not only had this occur over these YEARS paying for, but not receiving, what services are guaranteed us, including the ability to manage our own accounts. It now enrages me to see the commercials showing how great Xfinity is, look, you can manage everyone else’s service in your household, too! (When I cant even look at my own PLAN, much less anyone else’s services). But over these years, I have indeed called and on numerous occasions, I’ve asked what offers are available to me, and I have a triple play which was ok four years ago, but when I ask the rep (and I mean every rep I’ve asked) about double play packages, EVERY SINGLE TIME WITHOUT EXCEPTION, the rep has the hubris to actually say something very much like this-“you have the triple play, that’s the best deal, if you switch to a double play, you’ll lose the bundle discount,” then simply disregards my request<br><br>It’s exhausting, and it’s patronizing, and whoever says it doesn’t happen, I’m telling you it does. I’ve been beaten down by xfinity all these years, my time wasted, and it’s now to the point where I feel I’m being controlled by their double whammy of depriving me of my ability to manage my account and the reps acting as “parents” in deciding what they will or will not tell me is available.

Re: DFPLN3001 error code whenever trying to view available plans/services

As a follow-up for everyone who may be tracking this common issue, I spent 2 hours on Saturday evening troubleshooting the root cause of this situation with Xfinity engineers on the phone.  The core issue from what I was able to determine is the interface (API?) between Xfinity account management and Netflix services.  During troubleshooting, when Xfinity actually suspended my Netflix account and caused it to 'pause' on billing from Xfinity into Netflix, the ability to 'Manage Your Plan' actually came back, and I was able to see all my updated services through the 'Manage Your Plan' function.  Obviously not pleased that Xfinity suspended my Netflix billing service, we worked to have it reenabled with Netflix, and my billing was again active and my Netflix operational once again.  After that occurred, I checked 'Manage Your Plan' service again on Xfinity, and the same original error with DFPLN3001 happened again.  I informed the Xfinity engineers that this was obviously the root cause of this common problem, and to have their engineers take this case study and resolve this error for everyone.

 

It's been radio silence since then, and I have no idea if Xfinity is listening or not.  But the time spent Saturday helped shine the light on the core issue, and I hope that they will listen and engineer the right solution for everyone, especially with the Netflix service in many service plans now for Xfinity customers.

Thanks for this information. I only hope the engineers take this to their manager and senior Management so maybe this will be fixed.

An update-after spending three (3) FULL DAYS (24 hrs each) actually begging for help I was told that upgrading my plan and xFi would fix Netflix problem definitely (I have it all in writing). Result: Xfinity 5,000,000-Me- STILL ZERO problem not fixed, but I’m now paying even MORE for same problem.
