Re: Roku not working on all channels

Have you recently been updated to Roku 9.4 software?  It could be that a bunch of your channel apps also need to be updated.  You can force this to occur via Settings > System > System update > Check

When I did this right after receiving Roku 9.4 I had 24 channel apps update and so far I haven't discovered any problems introduced by 9.4.

Re: Roku not working on all channels

I'm having a problem with Now TV.

Program plays for ten minutes or so and mysteriously stops. Other channels, e.g. Netflix is streaming ok.

I have done a factory reset and updated software to no avail.

Anyone else having this issue?

Thanks for the posts.

Try removing the 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 channel back once more.

Does this clear up the issue you are seeing? Please keep us posted.
