@johnnycash

Thanks for the inquiry.

When doing a search on the Roku device, it looks like the channel is still available. Can you please provide more information about the issue you are experiencing.


Thanks,
Danny

Isn't PressTV one of the Iranian-owned web domains that were recently seized by the US government?

On my Roku Ultra player, the Press TV app (version 1.2, build 38) works partially.  "Live" and "Stories" work fine, but "Programs" doesn't.

Yes, but Press TV can be accessed at their Iranian domain, presstv.ir.
