Apparently from my Google search Roku dropped Fox as their contract was due to expire January 2020. So this is BS uninstall and install.

I watched Fox News all day via Roku, can get Fox News on my computer, now today I am in a perpetual commercial break, we'll be right back?  I have deleted the app, I restarted my roku and reinstalled the app, same issue.  Can't find any solution, not sure why I was fine yesterday and this **bleep** today

I have uninstalled, restarted the roku and then reinstalled the app many times over but still no luck. The live version on screen shows a pad lock on it and it you move the cursor to any other menu item is drops out of the app.  Either Roku or Fox News must have a solution.

@Blaze1

Thanks for the post.

For more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves. 

 

Thanks,
Danny

I have the same issue on my Roku 5 series, the only workaround I’ve found that works reliably is to use my iPhone or iPad to stream Fox News and then use AirPlay to view on my Roku. Works every time.

@Nikohelle 

Reinstall FoxNews:

1) Remove the FN app (Highlight the app, press the Options (*) button on the remote, then Remove)

2) RESTART the Roku (Settings/System/System restart/Restart) <-- MUST DO THIS HERE!!!

3) Re-install the FN app

(If you dont restart after removal, settings/cached data associated with the app are left behind and it wont be a clean re-install)
