Problem watching GB News live

Hi… just wondering if anybody is having problems streaming GB News live?

For the past couple of days, channel has been playing same section of news content for approx 2 minutes, then completely freezing.

Have tried removing and relaunching GB News from my list and restarting Roku, but neither works.

Has anybody got any suggestions?

Just to be sure it is:

Remove-Reboot-Reload  in that order.

Yes, I am having exactly the same issue. The playback is Mark Longhurst's afternoon show from a few days ago and each time I go to watch 'live tv' it commences with an advert for 'SOS' charity and the screen shows the time of 1426. I have tried every combination of remove, reboot, unplug, you name it, I've tried it. I have two Roku 4K Express streamers and both are showing exactly the same show when I choose 'live tv'. I can't find any support for this issue.  You are not alone!

HI there, yes having the same issue with my Roku stick. It's only on the GB News app and it has been stuck on the same moment in time since last Thursday. I've attempted to uninstall/reinstall the app but maybe I will try to uninstall/reboot/ reinstall in that order to see if it helps. 

 

If anybody figures out how to fix this please share!

Thank you.

GB News Live is not working on both of my Roku devices.  I’ve tried uninstall/reboot/ reinstall in that order but they still gets stuck on the SOS advert.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Maybe they forgot to switch something on before they went home nice long Easter break or there’s a wire unplugged

I was thinking the same thing as I work in broadcasting and thought maybe due to the Easter break those who maintain the app may have had sone technical glitch- will have to wait and see later this week!
