Britbox crashing to home screen

Hi @Stewmeat1,

Welcome to the Roku Community!

I'd be happy to take a closer look to see how we can help. I have a few questions to better understand the behavior you are seeing:

  • When did this issue first start occurring?
  • Do you observe this behavior while using any other channel(s) on your device?
  • Have you tried removing the channel, restarting your device from Settings>System>Power>System restart (If you do not see a Power submenu, skip to the next step), then once it loads up again, adding the channel back once more to see if that clears things up?

With more information, we will be able to assist you further.


Best regards,
Mary

Re: not launching britbox. been happening for the last week

Device: Roku TV 5120X TCL 32S3750

Serial: 2N006E345914

Device ID: 5MK046345914

Software OS: 11.0.0 Build 4193-08

Tracker ID: 14-447-818

Started 1-2 weeks ago, happens when I click on BritBox channel, it gets as far as partially loading the BritBox home screen and then fails and returns to the Roku home screen

I saw the response to an earlier poster about OS version, so I manually had it search for updates. It said my device is up to date (last update date shows as May of this year) and didn't update the OS.

Re: not launching britbox. been happening for the last week

Same thing happening to me. I did all the recommended system & channel restarts & searches for updates, but nothing changes.

  1. Roku TV 5315X, Insignia model NS-39DR510NA17, Serial number 2N00C6091690, Device ID 6Y465C091690, Software version 11.0.0 build 4193-12
  2. Only occurs on this channel
  3. Tracker number 90-448-495
  4. After choosing BritBox, Roku goes to Britbox homepage for a few seconds (partially loads), "BritBox Live Continuous" pops up briefly, then I'm kicked back to Roku homepage.
  5. I'm using the BritBox app that I installed on Roku TV

It was mentioned in an earlier post that a user was still on OS 11.0 and the reply suggested a manual software update. I tried that and the message was that all software is up to date. If the problem is that an update is needed, how else can I get it?

BritBox won't load properly

I've read the blog and on-line posts.  Britox had been working and last week, it suddenly stopped.  Britbox has directed users to ROKU and ROKU has directing users to Britbox.  I have a valid annual subscription to Britbox (not through ROKU).  My ROKU device was last updated on 11/06 (which is when Britbox stopped working).  I have removed/reinstalled the app (like other user it isn't asking me sign back in), I have reset/restarted my modem and my ROKU TV.  It seems very way too coincidental that the app stopped working when my ROKU was updated (the app works on my Fire TV).  This problem seems to be happening to a number of users and none of the answers seem to correct the problem.
