Democracy Now Channel not updating

Jump to solution

I've had the Democracy Now Channel for years on ROKU,,,, I believe they broadcast each morning M-F and then show up on Roku sometime in the afternoon. Several months ago instead of showing up in the afternoon of the day of shooting, they began showing up the next day. 

This week, they seem to be stuck on Tuesday, May 19th and Wed, Thurs, Fri has not popped in (yet?).

And YES, I did delete and reload the Democracy Now Channel,, and YES, I did make sure my ROKU version was up to day and refreshed, restarted, etc. and NO, this is not happening on my other dozens of channels. 

Anyone else having this problem? or can think of another solution? 

thank you

If you want to watch Democracy Now! on Roku, another option is to install the Free Speech TV channel (FSTV). They also stream Democracy Now!

Update: as of this writing, 5/24/2020, Democracy Now is still "stuck" on last Tuesday 5/19.

Yes, I have written Democracy Now when I originally posted this, and have not heard back from them. I will write Democracy Now again. 

thank you,

James

UPDATE: Democracy Now is still stuck on May 19th, it is now the 27th. I have been writing DM every day and today I noticed a phone number for DM, so I called the number.... selected the "engineering department",,,, and left a message... I hope this works.
