NFL network live TV option missing, has always worked
NFL network channel "live tv" option disappeared sometime this afternoon. Worked fine this morning. I have access through my tv provider. Ive tried removing channel and reactivating it through cable provider, once logged back in live tv option still missing. I tried restarting roku. I logged in with cable provider at nfl.com and live tv option is working fine. So it has nothing to do with spectrum.
Re: NFL network live TV option missing, has always worked
EDIT: TL;DR - Live TV not available on Roku - see bottom
EDIT1: App version 5.0.0 released, restores Live TV (for NFL Network)
You didnt mention your Roku model # or firmware version (Settings/System/About) or app version (highlight the app and press Options (*) on the remote).
I installed the NFL app and activated it, but I ran into several different odd issues (including activation issues) before it worked properly, and (non-Live TV) playback took about 30 seconds to start.
There is no "Live TV" option/tab, it just auto-plays available videos.
(As an aside, NFL.com is the worst performing/least optimized website I've ever encountered, and only CBS-affiliate sites give it a challenge as "slowest to load/render"..)
Reinstall the NFL app:
1) Remove the NFL app (Highlight the app, press the Options (*) button on the remote, then Remove)
2) RESTART the Roku (Settings/System/System restart/Restart) <-- MUST DO THIS HERE!!!
3) Re-install the NFL app
(Otherwise, if you dont restart settings/cached data associated with the app are left behind and it wont be a clean re-install)
If that doesnt work, you'll need to contact the NFL (they code and publish the app):
