Why are some channels suddenly causing roku express to crash?

Hey, I've noticed this for a while with just Spotify which didn't bother me too much, but now it's BBC I player I can't use as well. Tried deleting and re adding both but no joy. They just freeze and then cause rokj to crash every time I try to open them. Short of completely resetting my roku I'm stuck for ideas. Any help would be great

Re: Why are some channels suddenly causing roku express to crash?

After removing a channel, best practice is to restart your Roku to clear its memory before reinstalling the channel. 

Restart via Settings > System > System restart (for Roko TVs: Settings > System > Power > System restart)
