Re: Streaming TV error message: (Error TVAPP-00206)

I just reported the issue thru chat and I now have a ticket.  I have found something interesting:  All the "TV GO" channels work for me.  For example, my ESPN2HD channel 1206 has the error, but ESPN2 TVGO works.  Same for FOXHD and FOX TVGO.

To RobertWy

In my original post, I followed these instructions, several times and even rebooted, logged out, re-cleared my cache and deleted my history. The instructions are worthless and are NOT a solution. A couple of weeks ago everything worked perfectly. Not now though. Please remove the supposed "Problem solved". It is clearly not. Some HD channels work, others don't. Comcast/Xfinity needs to apply some serious technical resources to solve this issue. It has been going on for too long.

When I use tv.xfinity.com to try to watch certain channels (mainly sports such as ESPN, ESPN2, ROOT, NBCSN), I get errors when I try to watch. First, it says it is having trouble streaming, then it says "This video cannot be played" and the error code is TVAPP-00206. On other channels, I have no problem streaming online. This is true for Safari on a Mac, and IE on a PC, and for two different user accounts (the only ones we have). works on my phones by not the laptop or desktop

Xfinity has a sneaky way of quietly discontinuing service like the record feature from our computers.  I called Tech Support about this error code and was told they have no information on this error code.  Cleared cache, as suggested by this forum, and still does not work,  I suspect that they have discontinued this service but are "stealing" from us by not reducing our bills.  With so many choices for cable TV, I don't understand why Xfinity doesn't care about its customers.  Shame on you guys! But I will not renew my service.

Im feeling ike Comcast employees are not even checking this thread since nobody from Comcast has responded in such a long time.  Also, sinc eit is showing as "Reolved" even though it clearly IS NOT RESOLVED.  I think I will create a new thread and link to it here, so that everyone else with the same issue can post it there.

I noticed that a day after I received emails from CBS Live to use their app my Xfinity stopped streaming CBS/Peachtree TV through a browser. Put all your information in their streaming app and it works. Kinda simple, from PBS, FOX, CBS and on that once they have an app thet block browser access. Install an app and you can stream. Not sure what data they collect through app that they dont get through browser but a packet sniffer shows Xfinity streaming app transmitting data when it is closed.

this is an unusual problem in that if you use a smart device or Roku you can watch. It appears (guessing here) that some areas of the country are having a regional issue with web-based delivery of some channels. nothing yet from Comcast other than this issue happpend 6 months or so ago and was cleared up.

Comcast has not yet solved the problem. a workaround is to use any device that can run the Xfinity Stream TV app (will work). Hopefully it will be fixed shortly. note that this is not a wide spread problem at this time.

if you search the forum for TVAPP-00206 you will find many posts. Some areas are experiencing problems using the streaming website but the use of a smart device (phone/tablet) and the Xfinity Stream TV app will work properly. No ETA of a fix for this intermittent problem.

it is a very limited geographically issue. There is no charge for using a PC to stream from home. You can continue to successfully stream from any qualifying smart device by Apple or Android.

Have had this problem many times.  Many times, Mumbai says they guarantee it will be fixed.  Many times, it isn't.  Have two separate computers, trying Chrome, Firefox & Edge.  Home Network.  Xfinity Network.  Seems to happen especially during weekends for sports.  Here is the clincher - I have the Xfinity app on my Samsung phone and it works perfectly.  Mumbai is very happy that is working and I can watch my shows.  I told them I'm paying for both the TV and Internet.

I am getting the Tv error TVAPP-00206  all of the sudden now I can watch shows that are the night after but not live TV. I heard it had to do with google not supporting the flash anymore. Then someone told me to use a diffrent browser. I went through all the trouble to download all the other browsers and still did not work, so I am at a stand still and I am getting upset because this is making miss my NCIS Los Angeles.
