ESPN app won’t open

When I attempt to open the ESPN app on my TV it won’t open and returns me back to the Roku homepage? Can someone help me? Thanks.

Re: ESPN app won’t open

It sounds like you have a Roku TV. If that's the case, do a reboot. Don't turn the TV off and back on. Go through the menu and reboot the device. Settings > System > Power > System Restart

If that doesn't resolve it, try removing and reinstalling the app. Do it this way. All these steps, in this order.

  1. Remove the app
  2. Reboot the device. Settings > System > Power > System Restart.
  3. Reinstall the app.

This will often resolve issues with apps crashing.
