Error trying to watch TV on my computer

I keep getting this error when I try to watch TV on my computer:

Error 900 101000.101004.101005

It tells me to refresh but it doesn't work.

Re: Error trying to watch TV on my computer

 I have reviewed several old posts. It seems this problem has been going on for some time. The only response from a Comcast employee, other than we are working on this problem, has been to refresh the page up to 3 times.

 

If you click on the link below Adobe will detect the Flash Player installed on your browser. A chart on the page will display the version that should be installed with different operating systems and browsers. I do not think this is the solution, but checking will not hurt anything.

Thank you for the information.  I downloaded a new version of flash player but it didnt' work.  I "refreshed" about 5 times and nothing.  It's great that were paying for something that doesn't work.

You didn't mention what show's you're trying to watch, but I've found that in many cases if you go to the networks website you can watch without problems. Depending on the network, you may have to authenticate as a Comcast / Xfinity customer but I've never had a problem doing that.

 

In the almost two years I've been using the streaming service the only time I ever got the 900 etc error was when I was trying to watch something on HBO like Game of Thrones etc and it usually resolved itself after a few days making me wonder if it was some kind of capacity issue.

Re: Error trying to watch TV on my computer

I get thisd error : An error occurred while processing your request.

Reference #97.2e6c19b8.1428684925.32e39eae even when I try and select TV from my main browser.  When I finally do get there, I get the error again when I select TV show or movie.  If you cannot get it fixed, I will switch to another internet provider.  I don't like paying good money for lousy service.

You do understand we are Comcast customers just like you. My name dadgren is blue in color, a Comcast employee's name will be RED in color.

 

I wish I could fix things like this. All I can do is suggest things that you can do on your computer, that have helped others in the past.

 

If you wish to continue.....try this, it is pretty easy, does not take long and is worth trying.
