Xfinity stream app not working on Samsung smart tv

I have a new series 7 Samsung smart tv. I downloaded the xfinity stream beta app. I hit get started and am given a 6 digit code. I enter that at xfinity.com/authorize - it sends the info successfully to the tv but the tv shows TVAPP-00100 error code. I have spent hours trying to get this resolved with xfinity. Nothing has worked. It’s very disappointing.

Does your tv happen to match these approved models

My Samsung TV actually worked for a few hours after I installed the app and got it to authorize. Then it stopped working and I get the same thing as you, each time I put the code in, I get a success message but TV says something went wrong with same error you're seeing.

I am experiencing the same issue. I have a new Samsung TV so I know my model is supported. Would really like to get an answer to this.

when you go to your samsung app store does it offer the beta stream TV app? if so did you install and accept the terms and conditions?

Re: Xfinity stream app not working on Samsung smart tv

Similar issue. Samsung smart TVs previously able to view content on Stream app, suddenly not. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling app, now get error message about "must be on home network to use on this device" after trying to authorize the app.  Every attempt to load app leads to authorizing, which succeeds but shows that error message.

does a smart phone/tablet using the xfinity stream TV app work when connected to the exact same home wifi?

I’ve been dealing with this issue since November 2019 and haven’t gotten to a resolution yet. My model is 55MU8000.

Re: Xfinity stream app not working on Samsung smart tv

I am also getting error TVAPP-00100. Just bought a Samsung Q60R. Downloaded the app and authorized it on my phone. Phone screen says success but then tv goes to error screen and never gets into steam home screen. Spent 3 hours on phone with Comcast and they have no clue. Super frustrating. We need a solve ASAP

Re: Xfinity stream app not working on Samsung smart tv

I am in the same boat. Have a brand new Samsung TV. Downloaded the app from the app store and installed. Launched. Put in the code on authorization site and then get the same error code as the rest of you. Can stream just fine on my computers and Note 8. I even looked at app details and found a contact for the developer team at Comcast. Emailed them 4 or 5 days ago and still no reply back.

Is your model number matching the compatible model numbers?

Re: Xfinity stream app not working on Samsung smart tv

My app works.... but only partially. I see some of my DVR content, but not all. For example, I see the latest 7 episodes of The Walking Dead, but not the first 8. Why on earth would you make it only display half of what's on the DVR? I hope you don't plan on making this a paid feature until it actually works correctly. The app also freezes up sometimes which is quite inconvenient.

The cloud isn’t an exact mirror copy of what’s on your dvr. It shows the LAST 60 hours recorded.

if you use a smart phone/tablet with the stream app at the same location as the TV set, does it connect and work with the streaming TV service?
