Roku devices will not stream Spectrum app

All four of my roku devices will not stream the Spectrum app. I was on with tech support earlier today and they said the problem was with ISP and I needed to reboot my modem and router. Did that and no help. I then contacted Spectrum and they said it was a problem with Roku. So, is this a known problem?

Re: Roku devices will not stream Spectrum app

Hi, @SpectrumUser123!

Welcome and thank you for reporting this issue here on the Roku Community!

We have noticed that you mentioned encountering an issue with your Spectrum app in your post. No need to worry, we are here to help you out with this matter. To begin, we need to have a better understanding of this issue so that we can properly assess it. Kindly provide us with the following information listed below:

Meanwhile, you could try performing these troubleshooting steps.

  • Remove the channel: Highlight the channel tile on your home screen and press the Star button to open the options menu. Select Remove channel and confirm.

Re: Roku devices will not stream Spectrum app

I've done all you've suggested. Only local channels (if you subscribe) can be viewed. I've checked all three (3) ROKUs I use. The problems started a few months ago with fuzzy picture on all channels, I'd clear up the issue with a forced app update. Then 2 weeks ago, all the higher channels stopped working and now all channels less the local channels time out and blue screen.

@ScottyDog 

The only app ROKU is directly responsible for is the ROKU channel. I'd suggest contacting spectrum.

Re: Roku devices will not stream Spectrum app

Remember this started the stream 4 weeks ago:

"All four of my roku devices will not stream the Spectrum app. I was on with tech support earlier today and they said the problem was with ISP and I needed to reboot my modem and router. Did that and no help. I then contacted Spectrum and they said it was a problem with Roku. So, is this a known problem?"

Contacting Spectrum starts the cycle over. I was hoping this community board would have better advise.
