Streaming Playback Error 106000 Error 5

I'm on my Samsung Galaxy Tab, and when playing A&E, the program froze then listed playback error 106000, "unable to locate this video stream". After a few tries I switched to TruTV. Show streamed for 10 minutes then froze and same error. CNN never played but gave the same error. NBC appears to be working. These are not recordings, and I am streaming the shows within my home and WiFi appears to be normal. I watch these channels daily and have not experienced this error in the past. Please let me know how to correct this. Thanks!

Hello @cws130, thanks for reaching out to our Forums! I can imagine how inconvenient this must be especially when trying to view your favorite programming. I would be more than happy to assist you with troubleshooting this error you're receiving. Just to confirm, are you using the Stream app on a mobile device, or connecting through the Xfinity Stream portal at xfinity.com/stream

It is the streaming app. It has since returned to working, but has been very slow to begin streaming and occasionally freezes. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app to the latest version.

For troubleshooting purposes, would you mind testing this through the Xfinity Stream portal at xfinity.com/stream, to see if you experience the same thing there?

I'm also getting this error.  I signed in using the link provided and got the same error.  How can this be fixed?
