if you are having these error codes on the stream site in the subject have you tried running Chrome making sure flash is enabled always? also, smart devices (apple, android) can use the xfinity stream TV app to watch.

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

I am getting this error message on two different Rokus and on my computer when trying to watch PBS Create channel 268 in Harrisonburg, VA. I called tech support yesterday and she did an account refresh and still not working. I did a chat today with another agent who did a refresh of account and it didn't help. Now I am waiting for a call from the "higher team" to help. This all started with an update to the streaming App I use on the Rokus on June 21. Before that the channel worked just fine on both Rokus and computer.

A Technician ultimately came out to my house from COMCAST, and held his little meters up and told me "We have no indication you've lost signal for your internet or TV". Apparently the "No Internet" and the "TVAPP-00206" I'm seeing is in my IMAGINATION!!!!!!

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

Still getting the TVAPP-00206 error message after almost 4 months in NJ. It is sporadic. Now, maybe because Xfinity is working on the problem for 110+ days, getting random freezes that don't ALWAYS go to the error message or the we're having trouble connecting screen. Yesterday last half hour of an hour show totally out of dialogue sync, like an old japanese horror flic. Error message TVAPP-00206 3 times during the day. You are not imagining. I have had at least 6 instances a week for 20 weeks. It's approching theft of services on the part of Comcast. BTW, I do watch majority of my 'TV' on my laptop.

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.

Hello, all - 

 

There is a known issue where the Xfinity Stream website is giving the error "TVAPP-00206" on certain channels, however, this is not an issue on the Stream app. We are working to resolve this as soon as possible, I apologize for the inconvenience.

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

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

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.

(Error TVAPP-00206) - Almost All Live Stream Channels Not Working across MULTIPLE PCs

(Error TVAPP-00206)

Ive posted replies in another forum of an issue that appears to be happening to a lot of people.  Im unable to stream almost all channels (a few work - TNT, ABC).  Also noted that all of the "TVGO" channels seem to work, but the problem is that TVGO doesnt list ALL channels.

 

Ive tried on multiple browsers, tried clearing cookies, cache, history, even tried on multiple household PCs and it works on NONE of them, yet all of the same channels work fine on portable devices (Samsung tab & phones).  So, this is obviously tied to a windows desktop issue.  Everything worked perfectly fine a week or so ago, and ever since then it NEVER WORKS.  PLEASE HELP COMCAST!  Im paying for service that I am NOT receiving!

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.
