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

Hope they change this but I noticed that every network with an app will not stream in browser with Xfinity, Cox and so on. Every network with no streaming app works fine. I just decided no CBS, Fox, Peachtree TV, PBS for me. Never been a fan of ABC but it streams in browser so I have years of catching up to do and will watch current shows of CBS and NBC next year on youtube.

The same is happening to me. Majority of the live channels will not work on my home computer (MacBook Pro) but will work on ipad, this problem starting occuring only a week or so ago. Comcast HELP with this issue!

Just to check myself. Install Xfinity streaming app and CBS/Peachtree TV, Fox, and CW work on same machine in app that does not work in browser on same machine.


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.

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

Having the same issue. Almost everything from 201 to 700 is missing. Using Chrome but Safari and streaming app on iphone show the same. Searching for CNBC only gives me archived shows. If I watch one of the channels available, and use last watched link at bottom to CNBC or MSNBC I get: 

 

This Video Cannot Be Played

 

We've run into a problem while streaming .

(Error player.noPlayableID)

 

If I browse to my account and view channels they're missing there as well.

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.

the 206 error seems to be geographically limited and the only workaround so far is to use a smart device (android/apple) and the Xfinity Stream TV app.

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.

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

While on chat with support, LiveTV streaming just mysteriously started working again. They claimed they did not do anything. I reminded them this has not worked in the last week and just not intermittent.
Support response  "Refreshing your account allows us to sync up billing codes with your home. There should be no impact regarding the services running in the home. This is a good path to getting a resolution to you. I have not proceeded with the refresh yet. It seems like you may have been experiencing an intermittent issue."

I should be a "case study" for this company to review how broken their customer support is...

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.

customer service can't fix the issue as it appears to be server related. There has been no resolution to the 206 error that has happened in small areas to a few customers for a few months. It only affects web streaming. Using a capable Apple or Android smart device will work correctly until issue is resolved.

Same here, cleaned the cache, closed the browser, turned off laptop, turned on, got out of my house, gave 30 jumping jacks, came back, turned on laptop, open browser...and same. Great job Xfinity!!! Look how happy your customers are, and you got your bills paid always on time.

It doen't work on apple or android devices, Roku or PC browser either. Looking at the numerous complaints over a long period of time suggest they need to hire better network engineers.

Expert

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

the error 206 code is apparently not caused by cookies etc and is affecting some users in a limited area. the Streaming on smart devices is not affected only via web browser.

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.  

Xfinity - Please admit you have a problem.  And FIX IT!!!!!!

Hi, do you notice issues when streaming live content only or do you get the same error message when watching on demand content? Are you connected to your home network when streaming?

you can still stream on smart devices (apple/android). the area seems to be small and is probably an unfixed server capacity issue.
