Why cant I get FOX and Friends to load?...I paid and ROKU account shows it is installed.

I know the White House doesn't like different views, but are they censoring what I want on MY TV?

Re: Why cant I get FOX and Friends to load?...I paid and ROKU account shows it is installed.

You didnt mention your model name/# or firmware version:  Settings/System/About

..nor the app or app version (highlight the app, press Options (*)..)

If this is the FoxNews app, its notorious for having all sorts of routine issues, including content loading issues.

You can try reinstalling the app, though it may make no difference:

1) Remove the app (Highlight the app, press the Options (*) button on the remote, then Remove)

2) RESTART the Roku (Settings/System/System restart/Restart) <-- MUST DO THIS HERE!!!

3) Re-install the app

(Otherwise, if you dont restart settings/cached data associated with the app are left behind and it wont be a clean re-install)

If it still doesnt load, you'll need to contact FoxNews (or the app vendor if its another app/service).

It looks to me like we are being censored by someone when want to watch any of the Fox News items.  In the last week, I have not been able to get on at all!  I bought Roku so I could watch real news!

@GE1 

While I agree there is plenty of blatant oppositional viewpoint discrimination and censoring going on, the situation with the FoxNews app for Roku is simply one of incompetent programming/service management.

The FoxNews app is just very poorly coded and managed, and FoxNews doesnt seem to really care/isnt very responsive about making necessary changes to the app or servicing it.

I highly suggest you contact FoxNews and complain about the Roku app quality:
