Some channels work fine, some say I don’t have connection

I can use Netflix, Hulu, HBO, CBSNEWS, Amazon etc with no problem. 
Trying to use Oxygen, E! Or POPTV and I encounter all kinds of issues. 
currently, I’m trying to watch a show on E! And I keep getting a grey screen that says “no connection. Connect to the Internet now” then gives me two options: “exit to set up” or “I’ll set it up later” 

but I can hear the program playing in the background.

then, it takes forever to exit out of the program to get to the Roku home screen just to go through the entire thing all over. 

I’ve re-booted the router. The Roku. Checked for updates... etc. 

seems like the Roku just doesn’t get along with these channels?

Re: Some channels work fine, some say I don’t have connection


Thanks for the post.

What Roku model device are you trying to watch the channels on? 

Have you tried 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.
