Watching Newsmax live crashes Roku TV

Same thing here. I have tried everything mentioned above. I can stream it on the web, but that doesn't help with the Roku TVs.

I have been having the Newsmax crash issue for some time now. The delete and add channel does NOT solve the problem!

Re: Watching Newsmax live crashes Roku TV

Hi @db47,

We appreciate your first post here in the Roku Community!

We understand that you have already performed troubleshooting by removing and adding the channel. Please keep in mind that before adding the channel again, make sure to restart your Roku device since this step is crucial. To restart your Roku device, simply navigate to Settings>System>Power>System restart (if you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step).

We recommend giving it a shot for the second time, and please keep us posted on how it goes.

All the best,

Chel
