Disney Now, Could not locate user, CODE: 012-1206-403

Like the title says, on some Disney Now shows when I select I get a grey screen with this message;

Could not locate user

CODE: 012-1206-403

I tried getting an answer through the app's troubleshooting feature and have not received a reply for over a week.

Will someone please help.

I don't have this channel so can't give specifics, but you may be able to log off the channel and back on. You'll have to enter your login authentication info again, but that may re-establish your access. Look for "Settings" or "Options" or similar within the channel as a place to logoff/on.

Failing that you can try to remove and reinstall the channel:

1. Highlight channel on home screen.

2. Press * key and choose Remove channel option.

From home screen, Settings > System > System restart. This assures no remnant of the old installation remains in the Roku's memory.

4. After system restarts, find channel via Streaming Channels.

5. Highlight channel and install.

6. If channel requires a login, you may need to log in anew.

I did the remove/restart/install and now the episodes I was having issues with don't even appear on the listings.

I do not have these problems when viewing on a PC. And no, watching on the PC is not adequate.

Thanks for the inquiry.

If the issue remains unresolved after removing the channel, restarting and adding the channel back again, I'd recommend reaching out to Disney Now 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 Disney Now 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.
