the error message means that the 'devices' have exceeded the limit (last I heard means more than 45. are others using your account? have you changed your account username's password? do you have other users shown at xfinity.com under account and users?

There is one other but both used in same place (Home wifi). None of the devices can access xfinity streaming, cannot even access the xfinity streaming page to remove devices. There are only three devices, one being an ipad, other two devices are computers. Even the iPad cannot access the xfinity streaming app.

the most common reason I've seen on the forums is incorrect 'stop' of viewing videos on a PC. if the video is playing and the browser is just closed (red x at top right of the browser itself) then the streaming device count is never unlinked and one of your places is gone basically forever.  I'd change both passwords to the accounts as a first step. then call 800-Comcast and select technical support option for cable TV. ask the agent to transfer you to the app support team. ask the app support team member to deprovision all of your streaming devices. 

 

with a PC you need to press the stop option and close the video window (white x in the main window of the streaming website app). then the streaming 'slot' will be released.
