Re: freevee channel not working

I'm having the exact same issue. All other channels work except FREEVEE, keeps sending me back to home screen.

Same problem since yesterday on both TV's. One is a Roku TV & the other is a "regular" tv with a Roku device.

Have deleted Freevee on both, restarted Roku, and reloaded Freeve on both. Still just keeps bouncing back to Roku home page when you click on it.

Re: freevee channel not working

Hi @Hennyfilms,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

Thanks for letting us know about the behavior you're seeing with the Freevee channel. We would like to know how to identify and resolve any playback issues.

As a first step, we recommend performing the below steps and see if you can resolve the issue:

  1. Remove the channel from the Roku device
  2. Power cycle the Roku device, by disconnecting it from the power cable and reconnecting the device back to the power
  3. Re-add the channel back to the Roku device

Please try doing this and see if it helps with what you're experiencing.


Best regards,
Mary

Okay, so, that worked. It lets me use FREEVEE again, but as soon as I log into the app to get my account playlist, recently watched, etc. it boots me back out to the ROKU homescreen like before. 😔

Hi @Hennyfilms,

Thanks for following up.

Just to verify, are all other streaming channels playing content normally?

One additional suggestion we would like for you to try to check for a manual system update by navigating to Home > Settings > System > System update > Check now.

Please keep us posted and we'll continue assisting you from there.


Best regards,
Mary

Re: freevee channel not working

All other channels are working fine, and everything is current software. Even FREEVEE works just fine as long as I don't log into it. I even downloaded the FREEVEE app on my phone and logged in to see if it was an account issue, but it's working on my phone (even while logged in) just fine. 🤷‍♂️

Re: freevee channel not working

Hi @Hennyfilms,

Thanks for the note.

If removing the channel and adding it back after you've restarted the device does not resolve the channel issue, I'd recommend reaching out to channel support directly to report the issue and request additional support. Many channels on the Roku platform are developed and maintained by the channel provider directly, and they'll be able to best assist. If other channels are working correctly, and you only experience this issue on that channel, that is likely an indication that the issue lies within that particular channel. In these cases, the channel provider will need to investigate the issue in order to help resolve it.

Please let us know if there are other related issues that we can further take a look at.


Best regards,
Mary
