CW channel crashing to Roku Home screen

Having this issue with the CW channel now, I have restarted the Roku, deleted and reinstalled the app and nothing is working. Netflix and other programs are working as usual.

Re: CW channel crashing to Roku Home screen


Thanks for the post.

Have you made sure to remove the channel, restart the Roku device, then re-add the channel back again, specifically in that order to ensure a clean channel install?

In addition, what Roku device are you using? Are you making sure your Roku device is plugged into a wall outlet and not plugged into the TV USB port. Please be aware that at times the TV may not provide adequate power to the Roku device.

Please keep us posted what you find out.
