Hello Mafooli, you seem to be the person with the answer here, can you explain the process by which you were able to get Royalbox up and running again? Reading through back posts I’m not really following what the fix is.
Nope: mafooli got native BBC iPlayer working in the UK (I.e. legitimate use as designed). Royalbox iPlayer outside UK seems to be a copyright breaking scam (completely different channel to iPlayer), and, to protect UK broadcaster funding, hopefully Royalbox is now gone for good.
NB the mods seem to have merged two threads, unhelpful in this case.
BBC IPlayer is a hulking big channel app, and does have hiccups where it won't work on all devices (sometimes due to memory limitations). Because of size and complexity iPlayer has been discontinued from older Roku devices (and older SmartTV too!)
I see. Does anyone know where I can find back episodes of Eastenders from a source that is legitimate? The BBC used to provide them to the untied states via an arrangement with WLIW. But that has now ceased.
i’m so sorry, i never saw this reply. factory reset your tv, don’t download the apps from the roku tab during set up, when i loaded the tv afterward the apps were working
edit: above poster is correct, the apps that were designed for the tv just didn’t work - i don’t think royalbox is “legitimate” usage, per se. but why did roku merge two completely unrelated threads? did that, pointlessly, but never once replied to multiple support requests within the thread. bloody useless
For more information about those channels' functionality, you'll want to contact the channel provider support directly to inquire further. Many channels on Roku are developed and maintained by the channel provider themselves.
