Sony Crackle app not loading

Tried on 2 different Roku devices in the household  and both were not wanting to load. Get message "tge spp has failed to launch, please check your connection and try again "

All other apps are loading without issue. Could it be something with the connection  in the household or anyone else having issues to at this time... 5:40pm central


Had the issue before and it cleared up few hours later this has been ongoing for about 2 or 3 hours


Thanks

Re: Sony Crackle app not loading

I just tried it with the same result. Other channels work, as yours do. So it appears to be an issue at the Crackle end. It's not one of my usual channels, so I can't say I've last used it. But it's been several months at least. Remember that if Crackle works on a different device, that doesn't automatically mean it's a Roku issue. Some services use different servers for different devices, and it might be a server issue for them. Or, they released a new version of their Roku channel and it's broken. That's still a Crackle issue, unfortunately.

Re: Sony Crackle app not loading

It's not working here also, I don't watch it much either, but even in my brief viewings it's the app I've had the most problems with, so this is more the rule than the exception for Crackle in my experience.
