Thanks for the post.

Have your tried to contact Xfinity support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

You can reach Xfinity support here: https://www.xfinity.com/support/

Thanks,

Thanks for the information.

Try removing the channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the channel back once more. 

If the issue remains unresolved, I'd recommend reaching out to Xfinity support directly to report the issue and request additional support. Many channels on the Roku platform are developed and maintained by the channel provider directly, and they'll be able to best assist. If other channels are working correctly, and you only experience this issue on the Xfinity channel (app), that is likely an indication that the issue lies within that particular channel. In these cases, the channel provider will need to investigate the issue in order to help resolve it.  

Thanks,
Danny

I was just on the phone with Xfinity customer service for over an hour, and at the end they referred me to Roku customer service to ask why the app isn't working? Xfinity Stream works on my phone (iOS) and computer (Chrome on macOS). Interestingly, the Xfinity customer service rep told me Roku isn't officially supported, just Samsung and LG TVs...

Exactly what is the issue? You do need a Comcast video subscription. Also, you must be on your home Comcast Internet, and your modem must be properly linked to your TV and Internet account. I have also had occasional issues where overnight 'maintenance' outages cause some database to get confused and I have to reboot the modem to get Comcast services to work (mail and other stuff also will not work until the reboot.)

I have Xfinity internet and tv service, and my TV is in my living on my home network. I spoke with customer service reps at Xfinity and after over an hour, they told me it was an issue with Roku and I needed to contact them. That's strange because I've used my account to authenticate plenty of apps in my TV and they all work fine; the only one I'm having issues with is the Stream app. It's especially frustrating because up until a week or two ago, that app was working perfectly fine.

That did the trick finally! I deleted and re-installed the app four or five times to no avail, restarted the TV multiple times, but it must be the order of uninstall, restart, re-install that did it! Thank you!

We have been using Xfinity Stream for 2 years.  It occasionally required reauthorization but that always worked until now.  I have spent hours with Xfinity support & removed, recycled Roku (both online & unplug) & the channel per this thread.  However, we are unable to activate this channel.  Prime, Netflix, etc. all work fine.  But I get a TVAPP 00101 error message each time I enter the activation code with a message that I can watch streaming on phone or tablet.

suggestions please.

Warren
