Chrome just played tvland at https://tv.xfinity.com/ - have you installed updates for your OS and for chrome? (on chrome go to the 3 stacked dots upper right corner, select help > about.

All,

 

We apologize for the issue that you have been experiencing streaming TV when using Chrome. I have heard from your fix team and they have provided some resolutions (see below):

 

  • If you do not have the "Keep local data only until you quit your browser" setting enabled in Chrome’s Cookie Settings (chrome://settings/content/cookies), quitting the browser, relaunching, and navigating to the home page (https://tv.xfinity.com/) should clear up the issue. 

 

  • If you do have the "Keep local data only until you quit your browser" setting enabled in Chrome’s Cookie Settings (chrome://settings/content/cookies), try either clearing the browser cache from chrome://settings/clearBrowserData, exit and open Chrome, and navigate to https://tv.xfinity.com/or exit and open Chrome, navigate to https://tv.xfinity.com/

 

This issue was brought on by a recent update to Google Chrome that changed some of the compatibility requirements for files on pages hit during the login process. This explains why it started occurring outside of any version updates we have released.

 

If you have any further comments or questions, please let us know here. Thanks.
