    G'Afternoon all,

    I enjoy watching several shows from The History Channels show list on their respective website, but have just recently ran into an error that I do not know how to remedy.

    I click "play" on a random episode or a random show, and (once again) RANDOMLY, it will bring up a black screen with a red exclamation mark with a circle around it, to the left of a text error in white reading: "Needs to reauthenticate." Example is Ancient Aliens S9/EP 15.

    There is no set series or episodes it does this consistently on. It literally does this with every available show, but only on certain episodes; weird lol...

    I watch them from my Samsung Galaxy S5, and do not use the actual History Channel App., but I have NEVER had any problems whatsoever in the past; works like a charm every time without fail. I have tried contacting my ISP, scoured the web & forums for information, power-cycling the modem, re-signing in to my History Channel profile, re-connecting and then re-signing into my WIFI; LITERALLY exhausting every avenue available to perform a "hard-reset," if you will.

    Still nothing.

    Any input, suggestions & subsequent help/assistance would be greatly appreciate all,

    Thanks in advance, and Cheers!

    *(I originally posted this on The History Channel Forum on "topix;" currently awaiting an answer.)*

    Welcome to Android Central! Chances are that it's a problem with their site, not with you. Give it a day or two to see if they fix it.

    Another thing to try is to clear the cached browsing data for that site. Open the browser, go to its settings, and look for an option to clear browsing data. Depending on the browser, you should be able to clear data for a specific site. If not, then clear all of your browsing data for the period of time that this has been going on (or you could do it "From the Beginning of Time," if you want to be sure).
