I was told 'go ahead and buy a FireStick and you can get rid of your set top box and use the Xfinity Stream app'. OK, I now know that's wrong (grrr) but I committed to the FireStick and it's still pretty useful. BUT... I use probably 15+ apps for various channels and services that require authentication through Xfinity. Some of the apps require re-authentication with Xfinity EVERY DAY! Gets pretty frustrating. Some apps only requrie re-authentication every week or so.
So my quetsion is, How do I stop this constant re-authentication, or at least stretch the time to several weeks or months? Some articles say it's app specific, some say it's the provider. Somehow I doubt I will get Xfinity to chat with Food Network on my behalf... So I just pose the question to see if I am alone in this or if others have the same experience.
I highly doubt it's the FireStick, but I probably can't rule anything out...
I just purchased an Nvidia Shield TV. I have not noticed that yet on my device. I will look and see if my device has the same issue. My Roku never made me reauth its channel but it might be different for Fire Stick.
