PBS News hour episodes are not current date

Episodes for PBS News Hour are no longer current.  For example, on Monday, 10/26/2020, the most recent episode available is Friday, 10/24/2020.  If this pattern holds, Monday 10/26 episode will not be listed until Tuesday, 10/27/20.

This issue has been noted for the last week or more.

By accessing PBS.ORG, the current episode is readily available today.  ROKU seems to be the cause.

Re: PBS News hour episodes are not current date

Roku can only display what the channel originators send to the Roku-compatible version of their app they have created.  You need to be directing your question to PBS.

Re: PBS News hour episodes are not current date

Very annoying and essentially renders the program useless because, I mean, it's old news by the time you can watch it.

PBS, why am I donating to you?
