Can’t play anything on Roku Channel or Discovery+

Can’t play anything on Roku channel or discovery+. I’ve tried resetting, unplugging tv as well as checking internet; I even went so far as to factory reset it to no avail and I’m using a free trial before I start paying for subscription and I would like to be able to actually use it. I have a standard 43 inch Roku tv.
