A Free Season on Roku not playing

Roku Channel says that Season 1 of "The Killing (2007) is free; however, it see that some episodes like 7, 8, 9, etc. are not playing even though the label says it is free.   Any ideas?

Re: A Free Season on Roku not playing


Looks like the Roku Channel is offering "The Killing" (2007) through Topic on the Roku Channel.

Not sure if this is a Topic or a Roku issue, but verified episodes 7, 8, and 9 from Season 1 are just returning to selection screen. (both ion device and online Roku Channel).  The other episodes seem to play fine. 

Paging @RokuDanny-R , @RokuMary-F , @RokuKarla , and @RokuNimfa-C so they can forward to the appropriate Roku team.
