Re: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

I have been having the same problem for a month.  I got a month free when I emailed them, it seem to have a problem just sometimes before they started the new "Live" junk, and last week it worked twice before quitting again.  I think I will discontinue the service if now fixed this week.  They blame it on Roku but all the other streaming services I use are fine.

I found a way to get in most of the time.  On the Roku screen ,goto search and type the name of a program you want to watch. (I use my computer to look first).  Then I get an icon that bypassed the Britbox menu (where I think the problem comes from) and pick my show.  So far this has worked for me.  It is sad that they just keep pushing sales type things at us when they cannot even get the main menu to work.

Re: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

Hi @SusanGoolsbee @jw6828,

Thanks for the post. I'm sorry to hear about the channel playback issue with Britbox.

Please be aware that the appropriate Roku team is currently investigating this issue. At this time I do not have any information that I can provide. However, once more details are available, I'll be sure to update this Community thread.

In the meantime, please help us with the required details below so we can send additional information for the investigation to our engineering team:

  • Roku device model, serial number, device ID, and software OS/version (these can all be found in Settings > System > About)
  • does this issue occur on a specific channel? if so, what channel and what version/build is the channel (this can be found by selecting the channel on the Home screen and pressing the * button)
  • tracker ID when this issue occurs (when you see this issue occur, press the Home button 5 times, followed by the Back button 5 times, and provide us with this ID)
  • steps to reproduce the issue you are seeing

Please be aware that we are actively monitoring and investigating the discussions on this thread. Thanks again for your continued patience.

Re: Britbox crashing to home screen

I am having the same issue. This does not happen with my other streaming channels on my Roku TV, they work fine.

I have done all the troubleshooting tips, including resetting to factory settings.....several times.

I have contacted Britbox, and they said it has been resolved with their latest update,  but it won't go into effect until Roku implements that update. They called the issue the "Roku Kick-out" issue.

Do you know when Roku will implement Britbox's latest update?

Thank you.

Re: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

Good luck trying to cancel, I canceled an annual subscription this morning, because Britbox is useless to me if I can't get into it.  Received an e-mail stating my subscription was canceled successfully but I could continue to watch until Aug 2023 lol,  no refund, I can't get in so how can I watch.  Britbox claims a fix for the problem has been done and released but has no idea when Roku will launch it on their platform as they have to test everything before releasing.  I have been trying for weeks to actually reach someone at Roku about this issue, but have been unsuccessful in finding a way to reach Roku directly, if anyone has a number I sure would appreciate you sharing it with me.  I am beyond my limit with both companies at the moment.  I want to watch the shows I have started on Britbox and I do not want watch on my computer and I shouldn't have to but if I don't I have just wasted money. Never again will I get a annual subscription with anyone, burnt once but not twice.

BritBox crashes on TCL Roku TV

Searching around it appears that the Roku BritBox application is trouble-prone but I have not found this specific problem.

This is on a 28" TCL Roku TV, model 28S3750. Roku firmware is version 11.0.0 Build 493. BritBox application is version 3.0 Build 644.

What happens is that when BritBox is selected, the channel initially comes up to its menu across the top and an otherwise blank screen where the programming selections would appear. It sits there for about 30-35 seconds this way and then BritBox crashes and the TV returns to the home screen. (This problem does not occur on a standalone Roku Express 3710X box we have connected to an older TV set.)

We've tried cold-booting the TV of course,  tried removing and reinstalling the BritBox channel, ran the channel's update, and cleared the Roku cache and 

None of these steps have made any difference. BritBox still crashes. Has anyone else here experienced this problem and found a solution?
