Using xfinity stream on a fire stick... worked for about a week and now gives error message indicating the need to update the app. I go to the Amazon app store and it says unavailable. I don't see anything around the internet anywhere with a new version. What to do?
Xfinity does not support the firestick for the stream app.
I have been having the same problem on my Kindle Fire HDX. I've been using the Xfinity Stream app for years. And, now all of a sudden it is giving me the same error message. I've gone to the app store and it is not showing any updates.
Xfinity and Amazon are having a <Edited> battle and the app doesn't work on Firestick currently. This occurred 2 days ago. Programs you own on Xfinity on demand are being held hostage during the competition. Xfinity on-demand movies purchased should be viewable on any platform. Don't bother complaining. Neither give a hoot about customer service or integrity.
As mentioned by user's Rustyben and CCAndrew Amazon Firesticks have never been a compatible device with the Xfinity Stream App. You can find all the information about what minimum system requirements the Xfinity Stream App has here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/articles/xfinity-tv-app-requirements
