Re: Reverting to Roku Home Screen While Watching Newsmax

Hi @jojoherron, @OHMANJ,

Thanks for posting here in the Roku Community regarding the issue with the Newsmax channel!

We're sorry for the inconvenience that it has caused. We recommend starting here to troubleshoot channel issues.

Follow these steps in order:

  1. Navigate to the channel tile on the Roku home screen, press the * key on your remote, and choose 'Remove channel.'
  2. Next, restart your device from Settings > System > Power > System restart (if you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step).
  3. After your Roku device restarts, visit the Roku Channel Store and add the channel again.

If the issue persists, please refer to the Support article here for additional troubleshooting steps: How to resolve a playback issue.

We hope you'll find this helpful information.

All the best,


Jecheal R.
