New Spectrum Streaming App Crashes Roku

Jump to solution
I use my spectrum streaming service all day every day. Never had a problem. Evidently they recently changed some software.  Now the app opens, I try switching to another channel, it freezes, then crashes Roku and I get to watch "ROKU" jump up and down 5 times.  This is happening on every tv I own.  

I have 500MPS internet.  Its not that. 

I called Spectrum and they said other people are having the issue. 

No solution.  Is anyone else experiencing this?

@MaureenY

Thanks for the inquiry. We're sorry for any incorrect information that you have received, but this is not an issue being caused by your Roku device. This is a service-related issue that Spectrum's channel (app) is experiencing. 

If removing the channel, restarting the device, and adding back the channel didn't resolve your issue, I'd recommend reaching out to Spectrum directly and continue to work with them to request additional support. Many channels on the Roku platform are developed and maintained by the channel provider directly, and they'll be able to best assist. If other channels are working correctly, and you only experience this issue on the Spectrum channel (app), that is likely an indication that the issue lies within that particular channel. In these cases, the channel provider will need to investigate the issue in order to help resolve it.

Thanks,

For more information about that channel's features and functionality, you'll want to contact Spectrum  support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.

Thanks for letting us know about the issue you were seeing. The channel provider has stated that this has now been resolved in their systems. 

Please go ahead and try using the channel again. This issue should no longer occur.

Hi,

Thanks for letting us know about the issue that you are experiencing.

Try removing the Spectrum channel from the Roku home screen by navigating to the channel tile, pressing the * key on your remote and choosing 'Remove channel'. Then restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. Once your player starts up again, add the Spectrum channel back once more. Does this clear up the issue you are seeing?

Thanks,
Danny

Nov 15th - just reloaded the app and rebooted process 2X. It still has not fixed the problem. I have a high end Sony TV and with the recent update the Spectrum App glitches and freezes on almost every channel.

It works fine on my TVs with a Fire TV. What’s the next option from ROKU?
