Weather4Us channel conflict with firmware 8.1

My Roku 3 updated recently to v 8.1. Last night I opened Weather4Us and after waiting for the interactive BMW commercial to end, when I attempted to toggle to another day's weather, the channel not only crashed, but my new LG OLED TV screen went black and powered off. Assuming the channel had crashed the Roku I waited for it to boot up but it didn't. Needless to say I was a bit freaked out, though I managed to get the TV on again and deleted the channel. In my over 10 years as a Roku owner I've never seen this occur before and not even sure how a channel could power off a TV when it crashes. Very strange behavior so I'd recommend any other Roku 3 owners remove the channel at once.
