Xfinity Streaming Beta issue

This app seemed to work well on my Samsung Smart TV (although a bit cumbersome to navigate).  However, in the last couple of days when I launch the app it gives this error....."We had a problem reaching the configuration server.  Please check your network connection and retry."  I have reset the connection and am able to stream from other apps but continue to get the error for the Xfinitity streaming app.  Any ideas?

It's not even giving me the opportunity to reauthorize after reinstalling.  The error message comes right up.

select the channel on the main roku menu and press the * (star) key not the enter key and then remove the xfinity stream TV channel. unplug the roku from all cords (hdmi and power) for 30 seconds or more then plug back in and reinstall the channel. working?

I have deleted and reinstalled.  I have deleted, unplugged TV, plugged in TV and reinstalled.  I have restored TV to factory setting.   Still nothing.....I can see why this app has a 2/5 rating.....

same procedure. uninstall the app. unplug the TV from power (not just turn it off) for 30 seconds or longer then plug back in and reinstall.

Try this.. worked for me.

- Uninstall App
-Unplug TV for 30 sec
-Reinstall App
-Don’t open app from the App Store or the home screen. Go to the app with your remote but don’t select it. Select a show or movie from the menu above the home apps and it should work.

That happened to me 2 days ago tried your idea but still no go. Xfinity don't seem to give two hoots about it.

It worked for me and I haven’t closed the app since just in case. I’m pretty sure they have absolutely no clue whats wrong. They use this streaming app as a marketing tool but it’s a POS. And once they get it right it won’t be free anymore.

Nicksbarra's advice has worked for me.

 

I have to open up the app from selecting a program then backing up to the listings menu.

Hi hunterh,
There was a recent connectivity issue to some of the services required for the app launch and sign in process on our Smart TV platforms.  A fix was deployed this morning which should have cleared it up.  Can you please try again, and send me a direct message if you are still encountering issues?  Sorry for the inconvenience, and happy streaming!
 

Regards,

Evan
