Spectrum TV App in Xbox series X keeps freezing when watching on demand - SOLVED

The app is nearly unusable when trying to watch on demand programming when using my Xbox Series X. Many times it freezes whenever a local advertising trys to play or when you try to fast forward. Even happens sometimes while just watching the program. It freezes ALOT!

I've tried stopping and restarting the app; long press restart of Xbox Series X; uninstall/reinstall of app. Nothing seems to improve it.

Platform Version: 24.1.4

Store Version: 19.3.0

    I apologize for the issues, are you experiencing these problems on any other devices? Currently the Spectrum TV app has not had a version for the Series X released yet and is not currently supported, there may be issues when using the app on this device.

    Freezing is typically a connection issue. When was the last time the modem was restarted?

    Hi James, I've checked connection and the xbox is showing over 400.

    Thanks Anthony. I haven't tried any other devices. My main TV runs on this app as the cost of cable boxes over top of the already very expensive service is exorbitant.

    The series x has had a spectrum app available since it's release in November. If you are saying that a version hasn't been released that specifically addresses problems with the app on series x, that is concerning. The development platform has been available for a year and as previously mentioned, on the market since November.

    Any idea when can we expect a fix?

    Sorry for the confusion, I missed in the original question that you were referring to the X series. @Anthony_V is correct, the X series is not supported yet. Because the app is available on the XBox platform, you will see the app available. I included a link to platforms that are currently supported. Unfortunately, we do not have a time frame when the X series will be supported, however you can check the link for updates.
