Channel sounds great but I'm unable to add it by clicking the link.  What's the best way to add?  Do I need a code?

It looks like that particular way of linking to private channels has been broken. Try this:
Make sure you're logged in to your roku.com account, the same Roku account to which your Roku device is linked. Then try this link: https://my.roku.com/account/add?channel=WHATSONCHANNEL

First of, thank you @belltown for sharing this! I've been breaking my head on creating one for my channel, still am but now I have a better idea on what I was missing. Do you think adding a functionality to move across the guide towards the right, as to be able to see more future content, what would you recommend? I was thinking on using onkeyevents to displace the rows, but I have yet to go deep into the code to check the plausability.

Looks like the guide data is some what broken and crashing the app. Only way it doesn't crash is to turn off 3 hour guide - and then it lists Dec 31, 6pm as the date and time. The listings are accurate though.

Sorry for the inconvenience. I've identified the problem and implemented a fix. Unfortunately, I've been unable to upload the change through the Roku developer portal. They've implemented new "security" measures due to problems they've been having with "robots" developing Roku channels. I haven't been able to get past this step and prove I'm not a robot. Not sure if/when I'll be able to get past this hurdle.

Has there been any progress on reviving the Whats On channel or is it now permanently disabled?  If the Developer is having trouble uploading a fix, perhaps someone on this forum could contact him and help him with the NEW upload process.  So many of us find this channel to be useful on a daily basis.

I haven't had time to look into why the developer portal thinks I'm a robot. I've already spent way more than the 5 minutes I budgeted for uploading the fix. I may have some time over the weekend to get back to it. Apologies to you and the 35,000+ other users who are inconvenienced by this nonsense.

I love the app and use it daily. Seems like RokuShawn or some other official Roku person here could offer some assistance.

The TV listings are now working again in Version 2.6/03. To force the system to install the latest update, on your Roku go to Settings>System>System update>Check now

Hello, I performed the system update, but it didn't fix the problem.
