ON demand stopped working

I was watching a tv show on demand, I paused it, and when I tried to start up again it stopped working.  I cannot get on demand for anything.  Umplugged and plugged it, did reset and nothing.  I changed my plan three days ago and spent over 8 hours on the phone, on line and in person at a store, talking with over 5 people,  trying to get hbo (that has been fixed finally), and getting my internet network back which an on line employee changed, and I still don't have a green light on my router as it flashes orange, but it works.  Then my wifi would not let me access my nook, and I Fixed that.  But now I have no On Demand.  I have been with xfinity/comcast over 34 years but about ready to switch.  Since I changed my plan it has been nothing but a big headache. Why can't I get on demand now?

Re: ON demand stopped working

I am having the same problem here.  The on demand show plays for about 35 to 45 seconds then freezes for 3 to 5 seconds then a completely black screen on tv then starts playing agaon , does this contuniously.  The sp i talked with agreed the problem was with comcasts backend .  The regular tv channles work just fine,.  Problems seem similiar.
