Re: Apple TV channel - Login Failure

This recommendation actually made the problem worse. This is definitely a Roku issue because there isn't a problem with my Apple TV. When I was able to log in, it was trying to get me to pay for a subscription I already have.

I have a 4670. Couldn’t log on to the Apple TV+ app either through phone or on device. I just cleared my cache (home x5, up, rewind x2, ff x2), waited for Roku to come back, went into the app and login worked. All logged in now. Give it a try.

all of that BS has been done multiple times.  It does not work.  ALL of my info is correct.  If there were no problems with the roku app no-one would have this issue.  It does not even allow me to sign in to the roku app via a mobile  device.  firesticks work, mobile app works, samsung app works - roku app does not work

Don’t know what to tell you Jaxco. Mine wasn’t working, cleared the cache, and now Roku channel works fine.

Several. Times.  The 4670 is working but all of the other devices I have on the supported lists will absolutely not work.

I'm in the same boat. This is annoying. 6 months later and it still hasn't been fixed? This is ridiculous.

@Jaxco @Mrhaave 

Thanks for the note.

Try removing the 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 channel back once more. 

If the issue remains unresolved, I'd recommend reaching out to Apple TV 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 Apple TV 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 can reach them here: https://support.apple.com/apple-tv

Thanks,
Danny

I just bought a Roku Express (3930) for my father-in-law and having same sign-in issues. No SD card to take out, have restarted Roku and re-installed Apple TV app multiple times no luck, still getting the signing in screen buffering forever and verification error from my mobile phone...help?

I realize tech support is stating this is a APPLE issue but if you are going to carry their App on your product you should really have them fix it. I try logging in with my APPLE ID and it just keeps spinning, Signing In.... My fear is calling Apple Support and they will state its not their device since its a Roku and it wont work.  Apple support is utter garbage that is why I bought a Roku instead of an Apple TV.. 

Maybe Roku as a company should state we are not offering your channel until you fix the problem.. I am keeping my 30 dollar Roku device just because it carries my Cable carriers app which I can use on a tv without having a box otherwise id take this back to my the store where I bought it because basically this is false advertisement. Why say you carry an App if it doesn't work with your devices? 

Please escalate this to your upper management and have it fixed.. The Better Business Bureau and the FCC should look into this if it continues
