Free Speech TV not loading

We’ve been warching FSTV for years, but suddenly it’s no longer working. Removed and re added Free Speech TV to our streaming channels and it still doesn’t work. What’s going on?

"Free Speech TV" app will not load on Roku 3. Will load all other household rokus.

So it has to be the Roku 3 and NOT the app.  Tried resetting/unistalling/update checking and all other advice to no avail.  Is there a work around or something?  Another way to access Free Speech TV on the 3?  I don't want to have to replace it just for one app acting weirdly.   Plus, I love the headphone jack.

Re: Free Speech TV not loading

Between uninstalling and reinstalling did you restart the Roku?  Sometimes this helps by making sure the memory is completely cleared of the former installation.

Re: Free Speech TV not loading

I have been having the same problem w/the Free Speech TV channel on my Roku Premiere (4620 series) in my living room! It’s been ongoing since last Thursday or Friday. I click on the FSTV channel to open it, the small logo screen pops up for a second & then it just goes back to the home screen without loading. I also have a Roku Express (3700 series)  that is use in my bedroom & the strange thing is FSTV channel is working on that device. I’ve brought it into my living room for the time being. I literally have no idea what to do about fixing the issue on the Premiere. I’ve restarted it a bunch of times, I’ve removed FSTV & added it back. I’ve checked for updates. I’ve verified my network connection. I’m at a loss. Would really like to know a solution to fix this problem.

I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. STARTED LAST WEEK (W/O 4/20). TRIED EVERYTHING. IT WOULD BE NICE IF ROKU WERE A LITTLE MORE SERVICE FRIENDLY.

Re: Free Speech TV not loading

I’m having the same problem. FSTV works on the Roku stick I have in the bedroom, not on the Premier+ I have in the living room. And I did uninstall, restart the Roku, and then reinstall the app.

Nope. Still no joy. Even after a delete, restart, reinstall again.
