Different guy here but the same problem. I have been using Roku on my Firestick for over a year but in the last 2 weeks, it won't allow my shows to start. The Roku page comes up with my name, then I select a show and it comes up to its homepage but when I click to start or resume, it says "Playback unavailable at this time, try back in a few minutes" or "Playback not allowed". I have verified my internet connections and bandwidth, I have restarted my Firestick, I have logged out of Roku and logged back in but I still have the same problem.
We'd like to know more about the issue you are experiencing with the Roku channel on your Firestick. Does the issue only occur on The Roku Channel or all channels on your device? Have you tried to remove the channel and see if it helps? If you haven't tried it yet, you can remove The Roku Channel and re-install it.
Just learned about the Roku channel a couple weeks ago and installed it on my fire TV stick. Worked perfect until today now nothing plays I get a playback error try again later. I checked for updates. I've uninstalled and reinstalled the app still nothing works live TV or any other shows. Kind of disappointed at this point I had hoped for it
Fire tv no longer plays shows on roku channel so I pulled out my old firestick same problem. Roku channel greeting has my name home page is shown can access guide but when I select a channel it buffers and then gives error message. All three of my roku devices are working. Have Uninstaller and reinstalled what is the solution?
All I see is the same messages from here, you always say can you let us know...well it won't play any on demand titles... that's all you need to know and nobody apparently has a solution. So Amazon said yes we have The Roku App, but you can't watch any on demand titles from the Roku Channel and apparently neither Roku or Amazon seems to care...just dumb!!!
