Why isn’t Fix News Chanel loading and opening when it is selected?

Re: Fox News Channel

Sometimes a channel just experiences a problem now and then.  Just go back to it later and it works.  Issue is normally on the channel provider's end I have found.

Maybe doing a System Restart on your Roku will fix problem (probably not, but sometimes.)

You can always remove the channel and reinstall channel/check for updates.

Highlight the channel.....Press * button on remote....check for updates first, if good then repeat procedure and select REMOVE CHANNEL......Do a System Restart

Then reinstall the channel.

Hope that helps. Fox News is working currently, but I do experience some probs with this channel failing to open at times.  It usually will start working when i come back to it at a later time, other times I just reinstall it.  Can't really tell you definitively what this happens.  I also get it with NewsMax a lot.  But have never had to reinstall Newsmax, just come back to it later and it works.  Just gremins in the apps sometimes.
