Paramount+ playback error on all Roku devices

I have tried every troubleshooting solution out there and nothing is working! All of my other streaming channels work fine, but on both Roku TVs I have I get “playback error try again” message only on paramount. I am able to stream it from my phone and iPad, so it is not a problem with my account. I have updated both TVs, unplugged, reset, deleted and reinstalled app and none of these are fixing

Re: Paramount+ new user, app doesn't work on two Roku devices

I have Roku model 3810RW/Roku streaming stick+ and the only channel that consistently never works on my TV is Paramount Plus. 
serial number YH008P935722, software version 11.5.0 build 4312–50, device ID 225028935722

tracker ID -doesn’t give me one🤷🏼‍♀️

Steps to make this happen is that you simply go into the channel Paramount plus, select a show to watch, it starts to load and then says ERROR- Unfortunately, an error occurred during playback. Please try again.

So frustrating!!😫

Hi @aprilmacomber

Welcome to the Roku Community. 

Thanks for reporting this issue to us, let us help. Have you tried to remove the channel? If you haven't tried it yet, you can remove the affected channel and re-install it. To ensure the process is successful, restart your device before adding the channel back in. We would recommend doing this from the Settings menu by navigating to Settings > System > System restart.

For detailed instructions, refer to this Support link: How do I resolve channel playback issues?

Keep us posted on how it goes.

Yes, i have checked for updates, added and removed the channel more than once, restarted the roku a few times, and just “reset” it, NOTHING has worked.

Hi @aprilmacomber

Thanks for posting in the Roku Community!

It's important to perform a restart of your Roku device before attempting to reinstall the channel. Have you tried following the recommended steps in the suggested order (remove > restart > re-install)? If not, we highly recommend doing so. Additionally, we suggest restarting your device from the Settings menu by going to Settings > System > Power (if you don't see a Power submenu, proceed to the next step) > System restart. This should help resolve the issue you are experiencing.

Re: Paramount+ playback error on all Roku devices

I have tried those, on both TVs and it’s still not working. It starts loading then goes back to the error screen.
