Xfinity Stream App Not Working

Sometimes this error happens that although you are at your house, the app still says that you are not at home. In such a case there are a few things that you can do to resolve the problem. They are listed below.

  • The first thing that you should do is check your WiFi connection. If your device’s WiFi is not turned on, you can receive the “not at home error” on your Xfinity Stream App. So if your WiFi is turned off, turn it on by going to the device settings.
  • The second most common reason for this error is that the users have their device connected to some other WiFi connection instead of their home connection. So check if you are connected to the right WiFi connection.
  • If you are connected to the right WiFi connection and still the problem persists then try restarting your device. Once the device is back on, go to the Xfinity Stream app and check if now your app recognizes that you are connected to the home network.
  • If none of the above works then you will have to contact the Xfinity customer support.

  1. I have a freezing problem on my xfinity stream app using amazon firestick 4K bt only on stations like CNN,MSNBC and Fox when on abc, cbs and nbc it doesn’t freeze. This seems to occur when commercials are playing and then continues into the actual broadcast for 3 or 4 min intermittantly. This seems to be only on the cable news stations. Any idea what is causing this and how to prevent it. I’ve removed the app and reinserted it checked for updates. I have very good download and upload speeds (840-40)
