Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.
Try removing the Amazon Prime channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the Amazon Prime channel back once more.
Reinstalling the device doesn't help. I have a TCL-Roku tv and a Vizio with Roku Ultra Lt. Both devices are kicked off Prime Video after a minute or so of play. I can fast-forward the video when I first select it to view, but am kicked off shortly after that.
If the issue remains unresolved, I'd recommend reaching out to Amazon Prime Video directly to report the issue and request additional support. Many channels on the Roku platform are developed and maintained by the channel provider directly, and they'll be able to best assist. If other channels are working correctly, and you only experience this issue on the Amazon Prime Video channel (app), that is likely an indication that the issue lies within that particular channel. In these cases, the channel provider will need to investigate the issue in order to help resolve it.
You kept spamming me with roku2 upgrades so I ended up buying the newer roku express+ cause you said it worked better with future channel updates. So far, it's kicked me out of Prime and Pluto each day after following a binge. It will probably kick me out of the next channel I watch and pay for. This does not occur on my cheap LG Fortune 2 nor my 2009 Macbook Pro that no longer receives updates since the year 2014. This Roku device had one job, and it doesn't do it. Can I ask why that is?
When Pluto quit, I restarted, wiped the profile, did all the hassle website logins that follow a reboot and adding all the channels again, only to find Pluto inconvenient and start watching Prime for the day. The next day it has happened to Prime.
I'm actually glad I didn't encourage my folks to switch to streaming because they look to me to trouble shoot and Roku's reliability will hurt my relationship with my parents even further.
Now before I splurge on an hd tv that will definitely NOT be a roku brand, explain why every channel I load cannot be accessed even after a reinstall, restart, and reload of an entire Roku profile
There are plenty of users on the Amazon forum complaining of the problem without any solution, but I don't see any way to get through to Amazon about it. Does Roku have any communication line with the Amazon app developers?
