Re: History channel won't work

When problems are confined to a particular channel, it may be that the channel installation has gotten corrupted. A reinstall may fix the problem, so give it a try.

Remove/reinstall procedure:
<ol><li>Highlight channel on home screen.</li>
<li>Press * key and choose Remove channel option.</li>
<li><b>IMPORTANT- DON'T SKIP</b>:<br>
Restart the Roku to clear its memory via Settings > System > System restart. (On a Roku TV, this is Settings > System > Power > System restart.) </li>
<li>Reinstall the channel. Note it will be added to the END of the channel grid.</li>
<li>If channel requires a login, you may need to log in anew.</li>
