Why does Roku Failed to Load

Roku would start and show apps, however, if clicked on What to Watch or Live TV it says Roku Failed to load (or something like that). It would show empty boxes that would have had a show to watch. If I open any other app like Pluto, I would get the audio but, no video. What is going on?

Re: Why does Roku Failed to Load

Thank you for posting here in the Roku Community, @treasuredphotos!

We appreciate you for reporting the playback issues you've been experiencing with your Roku, and we'd be happy to find you the best resolution for this. 

Before we proceed, did you recently make any changes to your network connection? Also, have you tried rebooting your Roku player to see if this will make any difference? If not, we highly recommend so. You can perform it by navigating to your Home screen. Scroll up or down to select Settings > System > Power (skip if unavailable) > System restart

We would also recommend restarting your router. For more information about this, you may refer to our support article dedicated to solving playback issues.

Keep us posted on how it goes and we'll continue assisting you from there.
