Re: Britbox crashing to home screen


Britbox is crashing on my tv again.  It has worked well since 1st of the year, but has started crashing again.  My subscription is thru Britbox.  When I click on the app on my Roku tv, the BB logo comes up and the buffering wheel starts, but then my tv returns(crashes) back to the Roku Home screen.

My SharpRoku TV information is:

Model #LC-55LB481U

Serial #2N00GX212984

Device ID #8556AG212984

Software O/S Version 11.5.0 build 4312-34

My Britbox app information is:

Version 3.0 build 662

My Tracker ID # is:  84-075-103

PLEASE HELP!!  This is so frustrating!!

Re: Britbox crashing to home screen

Good Afternoon. This same thing has been happening to me as well with the Britbox app on Roku. The app will start to launch, and then immediately goes back to the home screen. To date I have tried removing app>reboot>reinstall app. When that didn't work I did a factory reset on my roku and then tried again with the same result. I've now noticed that Britbox on all my Roku devices will not load, however every other app works perfectly. I have reached out to Britbox and they have stated that it is a Roku problem. 

Problem has persisted for 3 days. 

Model: 3930RW - Roku Express

Serial Number: X00400ST8T8N (S009318T8T8N)

Software Version: 11.5.0 * Build 4312-AE

Issue ID: 8N-080-539

BritBox Version 3.0 Build 662

Thank you for your assistance.

Re: Britbox crashing to home screen

I’ve been emailing back and forth with BritBox at least since April 2023, it’s now the end of August. Each month I check in with them for an update and every time got some variation of:

  •  this is an issue on our (BritBox) end
  •  we (BritBox) are aware of the issue and have already identified the did and will be rolling it out soon.


Directly quoting from them in early April:

Thanks for reporting this issue to us; our tech team is aware of Roku bounce-back issue. The good news is we’ve found what’s causing the issue, and we’re currently working on the fix. 
The fix will be implemented in a BritBox app update on your device, so please ensure your app is up to date in the coming weeks

Once a month since early April i get some variation of the above.
