Xfinity stream app on LG

Yesterday the xfinity stream app stopped working on my LG tv. It just has the word “loading” on the screen. I have unplugged the tv, uninstalled and reinstalled the app and when I launch it, it still just has the word “loading” on the screen. Any suggestions??

+1. Used the app for the first time Wednesday night and when I tried to use it again Thursday I just got the 'loading' screen.

try power unplug and restart of your gateway modem (3+ minutes unplugged).

Re: Xfinity Stream Beta app on LG OLED stopped working

Same thing happened to me. I've been using the Xfinity Beta app for months on my LG TV and then it just stopped working today and now only shows "Loading". I reset my tv and reinstalled the app a couple times, but still doesn't work. So frustrating, does anyone know how to fix this?

We are Paying for service and not getting it. Xfinity we need a response to this issue asap!

Re: Xfinity Stream Beta app on LG OLED stopped working

Same thing has happened to me. We've had the streaming app on this TV for at least two years. Customer service said a new update was rolled out on Monday, and they do not have a fix for it as of right now...perfect timing considering college football in full swing today.

 

For reference, my model is OLED65C7P

This has no effect. I've restarted everything. Reset the TV to the original factory settings, still nothing. The app works on every other TV/device that I own, just not my OLED.

Same. The only work around is using our Chromecast to cast from my iPhone xfinity stream app to the tv.

Xfinity app stuck on “loading” on my LG TV

It was working perfectly for about a week, and now it’s broken. I uninstalled the app a few times, reset the tv, and factory reset my LG tv.

I install the app, select it, and it reads “loading” I left my LG tv loading for hours and nothing happened.

I’m direct connected, all the other apps work perfectly fine, shame I just canceled YouTube tv, at least it worked.

I can’t load the app, uninstalling it fixed nothing, resetting my LG tv did nothing

Re: Xfinity stream app on LG

Exact same issue and exact timing as you all. App has worked fine and for the last couple days, won’t go past the loading screen. I’ve attempted the same troubleshooting steps such as unplugging tv and modem along with deleting and reinstalling the app. Nothing has worked thus far. Following to see if anyone resolves it.

Re: Xfinity stream app on LG

Same. Tried all troubleshooting mentioned. Called customer service and they reset my modem and some other stuff. Nothing worked. They were supposed to be escalating the issue to another department and that department was to call me back in an hour. Never heard back from anyone.

Re: Xfinity Stream Beta app on LG OLED stopped working

Exactly the same thing is happening to me. The app just suddenly stopped working two days ago. When I launch it on my LG TV, it says "loading" and gets stuck. Looks like I'm not alone here. 

 

Xfinity - do you even READ these messages???  Clearly there's something seriously wrong with this app, and it's affecting all users wit LG smart TVs.

NO. Unplugging the equipment does not fix the problem.

Re: Xfinity Stream Beta app on LG OLED stopped working

Mine went out earlier this week, xfinity said they will create a ticket and call me when the find out it’s not working.....or in basic terms go pound sand. Xfinity already dumped the app for the new Samsung TVs so LG getting bumped was probably just next on their list. No monthly box rental for people using app.

Re: Xfinity Stream Beta app on LG OLED stopped working

I reset my LG TV to factory settings and reistalled the Netflix, Prime, Disney+ and Xfinity Stream apps. All but the Xfinity app work perfectly. The Xfinity app still hangs with "Loading" on the screen.

 

Interesting but the LG Content Store has updated the Netflix, Prime and Disney+ apps within the last week while the date for the Xfinity app is 4/20/2020.

 

Looks like Xfinity needs to update something with the app and/or LG need to get a recent update of the app.

Re: Xfinity stream app on LG

Bought LG so we can use the Xfinity beta app, worked for over a year and now we only get "loading"

does anyone know if this is going to get repaired or should we just finally throw in the towel with Comcast once and for all?!?

I am having this same issue.  The app works fine on my Roku TV's, but no longer gets past "loading" on my LG, which happens to be the TV I use the most.    Please fix this Comcast!!!

This does not work!  It appears multiple subscribers are having the same issue. This needs to be resolved or there will be lots of cancellations, requests for refunds and negative reviews.
