Movieland TV - not available?

Is Movieland TV not working?   When it connects, get screen with Search and About and nothing else. But does not let you go in to either.

It's gone. Not in the channel store anymore. My guess is they were showing movies they didnt have rights to. Because they had tons not available anywhere else.

Yep same thing happened to me yesterday. Is not even in store anymore. Is dead. It was an awesome app I hope they come back again somehow.

I think it's kind of odd that all traces of Movieland TV didn't disappear - it leaves me hopeful that it will be back. It was my absolute favorite, their library of movies was the best. I am certain there must have been some copyright issues which led to it being removed, suspended or whatever its fate may be.

Movieland Tv

Is there a chance that Movieland Tv is coming back to Roku? It was one of my favorite channels and now is currently not available. Please bring it back!

Re: Movieland TV - not available?

I see Movieland TV is not listed in the Channel store now, but my installation is still there and still works, sort of. The listing of available movies with thumbnails is gone. Now all I get is a Search link and an About link that shows the channel app version number, etc. The search function still works but it only searches on titles not actors, directors, screenwriters, etc. Easiest way to search available titles is just to enter a single letter and review the results list. The couple of titles I tried did work, not in HD, looked highly compressed, and with a few short buffering delays, but they did work.

Update. On my third movie today, I received my first ad 1:30 into a 1:48 movie. Now I'm wondering if the few short buffering instances were ad spots that either didn't take, or perhaps where they hadn't been able to sell the ad space.
