Can't access FOX News video streaming

Past two days cannot access FOX News streaming video, but can get FOX Radio streaming. I've tried numerous times, even changed my password, etc. Nothing works. Get to login... asks for user and password, the usual screen with the animated arrow flashes on, then it goes back to the list of resources... click on Xfinity again, and the process repeats itself.

How can I get out of this mess? Am a webmaster, need to watch the news feeds for clients, can't.... no matter what I try.

(Have input question to Xfinity with no answer yet.)

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

Today, Saturday 6/9, after loggin off entirely overnight, I can now get into FOX News through Xfinity. Don't know if it was the "rest" overnight that did it, or if the problem has been addressed finally. Keeping my fingers crossed... it is not totally stable all the time!

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I have the same problem. I have to go to TV.Xfinity, then 'Browse', then 'News', then 'On Now', then 'America's News HQ' (or whatever's 'live.')  It's kind of a hassle when i spend so much $ for Xfinity.  I can't click easily between articles and streaming.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I got it working today, by clearing all browser cache, restarting the browser, and then going to the streaming site (http://video.foxnews.com/v/1241186546001/?#sp=watch-live).

if you are accessing fox's own app, perhaps they have a help area under the app's settings menu?or using the fox new's web site might be a contact us link.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I have had the same problem for 9 days now. At first, I was unable to also access the Fox News Stream on my two android devices. That problem cleared up after 4 or 5 days. But it remains on my Windows 10 system. It's exactly a a1000w described in the initial post to this thread.

 

I opened a ticket with Fox News a few days ago, but have not received a response as of yet.

Hello all, we are aware of this issue and we have alerted FOX so that they can fix the problem on their end. In the meantime, you can stream FOX news via the Xfinity Stream app or online at www.comcast.com.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

Comcast's official response to complaints about not receiving FOX NEWS was too slow for such a large company that receives about $200/mo from most of us. Faster folks....be more responsive .

This issue is not a Comcast problem, nor was it caused by Comcast equipment. This is something that only FOX can fix, so we were not aware of the problem until after it was reported to us on platforms like this one.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

This problem is still ongoing. I don't think it should be marked as solved, regardless of who's problem it is. It would be helpful if COMCAST would contact Fox yet again and try to get this fixed for their customers.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I am having same problem.  Fox news go asks for xfinity log in and then goes back to allowing 10 minutes of free access.  I have fox account also and they say it is Xfinity problem??  This just started last week.  Maybe comcast should buy 20th century fox?  Meanwhile, x1 streaming does work.

until foxnews' engineers fix the problem just use the Stream app or streaming website and play foxnews on the TVgo menu.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I'm having multiple problems, all only with Fox News.

 

Same issue as others here with FoxNewsGo; it logs me into Xfinity, but then stream never kicks in, and it just boots me back to "pick your provider" again.  Has been this way for a week.

 

On the TVs (all four), the picture is pixelated and sound choppy.  This just started today, but others here have been having these issues since March according to posts.

 

I can watch on Xfinity stream with no problems; clear picture and sound.

the answer is in the post just above yorus. you can also use the Foxnews TVgo channel when away from home. I turn on background audio to listen so video is not draining battery.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

This is not a viable solution to the problem. The Fox website has some archived content (e.g., full shows) that require you to log in to view. Since no COMCAST customer can log in, and archived content is not offered by COMCAST streaming apps, the customer can not view this content.

please keep in mind that Comcast can't 'fix' Foxnew's broken verification system. at least you can use the Stream app in or outside of your home (and audio only if you like).

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I am having this same issue.  Started about 10 days or so ago.  I watch archived content on Fox News and have been unable to.  I called Comcast tech support last week they said they had not idea there was an issue.  I have deleted cookies and clear cache for fox, idx.securetve, as well has xfinity to try and resolve on my own.  No luck.

 

My symptoms are the same, endless loop of logging into provider never getting content.  Can this be escalated?

Same here, fixed.  I emailed Fox yesterday, not sure if that did anything but it made me feel better.  Glad to have archives of nightly shows back.

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

This problem has returned for the past two days. I have a Roku and I’m getting the activation screen on my tv, but just cycle thru the device and provider screens on my computer/tablet/phone. I was having problems using tablet a few days ago but could access via phone. Called Roku and told problem with Fox. No number to call for support so sent email but they never get back to you. Totally blocked out now for two days, saw Kavanaugh’s confirmation and that was it. Why won’t xfinity work with Fox to fix.

Same issue with streaming Fox News.  Cannot watch live programming but can on my phone.  As much as we pay for services each month, this problem should be solved ASAP!

hi, you posted in the streaming web site area. The desk/laptop browser uses the same stream as do the phones. what is the error message/number that appears on your screen on the desk/laptop? what OS? is it a virtual machine? what browser? is flash up to date and enabled on the browser?

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

I had this problem on my phone after changing my Comcast/Xfinity password. I have an Android phone and went into settings then Apps and cleared the Cache and Data for the Fox News app. Seemed to fix the issue for me.

Actually had Fox News, Fox Sports, and Fox Sports Go running for a week now and all have been running flawlessly. It appears Fox has made changes to its streaming on the Roku. Thanks Fox!

Re: Can't access FOX News video streaming

Comcast told me to just go to Fox News via YouTube......so I did. It works pretty well but I can't get all of the articles that Fox News has.  But if you follow individual people who have conservative poliltical  websites with CC (closed captions), a lot of those individuals have taken the time to ensure those cc's are ensinked (that is, the words at the bottom are at the same time, the audio word is spoken.)  I have aphasia so reading and hearing the word is difficult so the ensinked cc is helpful for me. I should imagine it could help any slow person, like me.  

 

Please write back if this helps you and if this could be more understandable.
