Streaming Newsmax Channel on Roku

The same we cannot watch Newmax through Roku TV live tv channel. We get in and a few minutes we get kicked out. It is aggravating. The only way I can watch Newsmax live is through Pluto live tv or Youtube live Newmax channel. I have had not had any complaints with Roku TV until this. Roku TV please fix this problem on your Roku TV live tv channel for Newsmax news. I want to watch it through Roku TV live channel and why is everyone having problems now that want to stream this new channel? Roku used to be reliable, stable streaming without interruptions or connecting issues to your favorite streaming channels and programs you want to watch. Roku please get this problem fixed please!

Welcome to the Roku Community!
We'd like to take a closer look into this issue that you're having. May we know what kind of Roku device you're using right now? (Roku Express, Roku streaming stick, Roku Ultra, Roku stream bar, Roku TV-Specify)

We look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thanks,

Newsmax has launched Newsmax+ starting 11/1/23. This is a paid service which supersedes the previous app for live show content. A log in and passcode is required. Roku needs to make this app available in its store so that those of us who subscribed can watch. Thank you!

newsmax needs to supply the app. I'd suggest contacting them.

They were contacted and said they are having issues with Roku but they didn’t elaborate on what those issues were but did say they should be resolved !1/2/23. 🤷‍♀️

Re: Streaming Newsmax Channel on Roku

Yes, Newsmax really messed up their changeover to a paid service. They said they would have a new version of their app available today. But they never said when, so it could still be hours from now. 

Just remember, Roku has nothing to do with this. They provide the platform, the providers create the apps for their service. Roku has no control over how the providers do that. They only check the apps for compliance with the terms of service before allowing them in the channel store.

Newsmax has updated their app/channel, and it now works for Newsmax+. Do a manual update check to make sure you have the latest version of the channel.
