CNN and MSNBC

Out of the blue and with no changes to my Xfinity subscription package, I am no longer able to log into live CNN and MSNBC to watch on my iPhone.  Now getting message that these channels are not in m package -  which is wrong. 

Xfinity  -  How does this get fixed?    All equipment is working fine.  And no issues with CNN and MSNBC on the TV itself.

Hello, @user_e0397a! I'm glad you reached out to us here on the Xfinity Forums for help with your app permissions. We certainly do not want you to miss out on your favorite streamed content, so we would love to help you figure this out! 

Can you tell me what troubleshooting steps you've already taken such as re-installing the app or checking to see if you can still watch these same channels on the Xfinity Stream app?

Hello, @FallSapphire. I see you are in a similar situation; however, you've had picture issues while streaming. That is likely another problem not associated with the access of these channels. With that said, we can help with that as well. I understand you restarted the device and signed-in in again. Do you stream exclusively via the Firestick? Have you tried accessing your content with another device? If so, do you have the same issues there?

Hello, @user_7d857a, I hope overall your day has been a good one. I apologize for the streaming issue. Is this happening on multiple iOS devices by chance or just one?

Hey there! I just checked on my Stream app via my mobile phone and both MSNBC and CNN were viewable. Have you already attempted closing out the window and reopening (or closing and reopening the app), trying a different browser, clearing cache and cookies, and rebooting the device completely? You are also receiving the error about the channels not being included in your subscription, correct @user_a9b08f? Are there other devices that the Stream app does allow you to view those channels on?
