Error Code / MVPD playback issues?

I keep getting a strange image on my Roku channel screen when trying to watch apps like "E!" & sometimes MTV, ESPN, and others. This does not happen with Netflix, hulu, or other generic channels. 

The message always states: "Sorry! we are having some trouble" the MVPD has returned as error code... blah blah.

I have contacted my WiFi and they have not seen an issue like this so it is likely it is coming from the device. Please help

Thanks for the post.

Try removing the channel(s) 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(s) back once more.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing?
