Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
In the last week or so, HBO Go stopped loading. When opening the channel, only a black screen shows up. I have tried removing, restarting and adding the channel back with no success. Is anyone else having this issue and had any success fixing it? Same problem with HBO Now.
@bnhowes Thanks for reaching out to let us know what you're seeing. If reinstalling the channel isn't resolving the issue, and other channels are working normally, you'll want to contact the channel provider to report the issue and request additional assistance.
We'll go ahead and help pass your report along to the channel provider as well to request they take a closer look. If we hear any further updates, we'll be sure to provide an update. Feel free to send a private message if you have any other questions.
I installed the HBO Now app and it loads blank. the blue dots appear at the bottom and then nothing. I had HBO with Roku in the past, but let the subscription expire. this time i signed up with HBO directly. I would expect to get a login prompt at least.
Troubleshooting so far:
I have restarted the Roku the the menus and pulling the power cord. i have deleted the HBO now app and reinstalled from the device and the roku website. I have factory reset the roku and setup the device again.
Even though I've been an HBO subscriber for many years, I can no longer access HBO GO via my Roku. I've checked for Roku system updates, tried to reinstall the HBO GO channel (I get an error message that prohibits installation), and tried to access HBO via the Roku Channel (it asks my to sign up for a trial subscription to HBO).
Don't know but my HBO Go stopped working the other day out of the blue. When I try to delete the app it says there is no network connection, but when testing the network connection on Roku it says it is working (and the other channels are all working). Aggravating.
