'Sorry, there was an error in the player'

Hi guys, 

Hoping you you may be able to help. When trying to watch something on my nowtv app on my Xbox one it comes up with this error message 'Sorry, there was an error in the player' there is no error number, just that message. I've tried uninstalling it etc I've logged out of my account, reset my internet router, connected to my phone internet, removed the device from my account and adding it again. It works on my other tv and other devices just not my Samsung tv. Anyone have any ideas on how I could fix this? 

 

Thanks in advance ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Hayley

I am running the NOW TV app through a LG TV and encountering the same error message,, 'Sorry, there was an error in the player message'. The message appears frequently and intermitently, sometimes 2 minutes between, sometimes 10 minutes, sometimes 30-40 seconds. It is extremely frustrating and destroys the content. Please can you send a specific solution.

Many thanks.

I am experiencing the exact same issue, trying to watch nowtv on my xbox 1.

There have been suggestions about changing the dns however this hasn't fixed the problem. Any other ideas please?

I have been also having this problem with my Xbox one for a few weeks now.

I have a Samsung TV and running the 3.0.3.70 now TV app 

 

Any advice what to do in uninstalled it, reinstalled it, cleared the cache, change my Xbox location, changed ip, DNS and other settings. Nothing seems to work.

I had this problem but itโ€™s working again now. I didnโ€™t do anything different to what I had done when it first happened, just unplugged the Xbox for a few weeks and when I came back to it it was working. There isnโ€™t much info about this error online so if all fails I would just uninstall the app and try again in a few weeks and keep doing that until it works like it did for me.

Hi i've got the same problem with my LG tv.  Did you log out of account first and then delete and reinstall?

I am also having this issue with the app on a Samsung Smart TV, the app is showing as version 5.2.10. Everything I have watched be it a 30 minute tv show or a 2hr movie I get this message seemingly at random, the app gives me the option to go back but the app locks up and I cannot get out of it unless I turn my TV off at the wall.

 

I have tried uninstalling and then reinstalling the app but the issue remains.

Hey, thanks for replying. The version of the app is 3.0.8. Only on one of my Samsung  TVs. Itโ€™s not a smart tv or anything and Iโ€™ve never had a problem before watching now tv on there. I watch it every day without a fault and about a week ago it came up with that message. Wonโ€™t let me watch live tv or anything. I uninstalled it for a few days and just redownloaded now but itโ€™s still not working. When I sign in on my boyfriends Xbox one x in the same house, it works fine.

So just to confirm @Anonymous User, your using your Xbox One when this issue occurs and your connecting your Xbox to a samsung TV? 

Can you check the version of the app on your Boyfriends Xbox for us?

Thanks,
