I have Amazon Fire Stick and I am trying to download some apps. Once I downloaded the app it asks me to activate it by going to their website and entering in an activation code. I use my IPhone to do that and sign in with my xfinity username and password I get a green check that says I am connected and then it open another page that gives me an error message error="invalid_client", error_description="A client id must be provided". What do I do?

I am having the same issue on the Bravo app on my Apple TV. Apple TV is up to date, the app is up to date. I’ve tried restarting and quitting and reopening the app. I can stream bravo shows just fine on the Xfinity Stream app and the Bravo app on my iPhone

If you’re on AppleTV or Firestick and trying to activate using your iPhone/Android, that’s what triggers the error. Trying entering the activation on a laptop computer or desktop. That should allow you to watch on your AppleTV. That said, annoying to have to go through the gymnastics just to get xfinity to work as it should...

I was just experiencing this problem too, trying to use the AMC app on Apple TV. I saw a suggestion in another thread to use Firefox instead of Safari for entering the code on the AMC website, and this solved the problem for me.

I'll try that although reluctantly. I don't prefer firefox. This is insane that is still a problem. It wasn't a problem before Thanks!
