RETRO TV channel stopped streaming on all my ROKU's last week. It just shows a static RETRO TV logo.

Jump to solution

When I click on the RETRO TV icon, a continuous static RETRO TV logo is displayed on my ROKU's and never changes. RETRO TV is streaming on the internet normally when accessed from their website, on my computer, but will not stream on ROKU.

All other channels on ROKU play perfectly. No reply yet received from RETRO TV support folks. Anyone else suffering this problem?

Hi @jtken,

We appreciate your post regarding your playback issue with the Retro TV.

We recommend starting here to troubleshoot channel issues: Follow these steps in order:
1.Navigate to the channel tile on the Roku home screen, press the * key on your remote, and choose 'Remove channel'.
2.Next, restart your device from Settings>System>System restart. (For Roku TV Settings>System>Power>System restart)
3.Once your player/TV starts up again, go to 'Streaming Channels' on the Home screen, and add the channel back once more.
If that still doesn't clear up the issue you're experiencing, we recommend contacting the channel provider directly to follow-up for more help. They’ll be able to best assist with any issues that are occurring within their channel.
Thanks,

Mary

Yes, I noticed that it now says “temporarily unavailable”. I’m hoping I can find this channel under another streaming app like Pluto TV, STIRR or Xumo where they are aggregated.

Customer service replied - they have a new channel - It’s Real Good TV - that combines RetroTV, Heartland channel, and Revn (cars) live channels and on-demand.  It asks you to sign in, but if you click “explore” it’s not necessary.
