Re: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

Hi JW6828, I have been doing this also, it works for some shows but not others, and I cannot move around once the show ends I need to exit and search another show.

Re: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

I got the same story, that a fix had been made but they did not know when it would be applied. I go to the app every day and manually check for updates. I did find that searching for the show I wanted to watch gives me a link to go in and watch. While I am getting sick and tired of doing this, it does give me a way in. And they gave me a month free due to the problem. I am guessing you paid for whole year. I have checked all the other streaming apps that I use and they work. It seems to be Brit Box. I also noticed it started when they put the new "Live" line of programs up. With the expertise they should have I do not understand why they don't put it back like it was and work out the problem. I worked in IT many years, now retired I still remember we used to just go back to the working version of a program if something went wrong. I wish I knew how many of us are having this trouble. Not that it would help, but it would be interesting. I am tempted to use my daughters Firestick to see if she has the same trouble. I also have a LG tv with Britbox on it but my wife has control of that one. After this month I am going to cancel if not fixed

Unable to access Britbox channel

Like many other Britbox subscribers, I have not been able to access Britbox for weeks.

Britbox says its a problem with Roku and it should be fixed in a "few weeks" and to download the updated version of the Britbox app.

Any reliable company will compensate subscribers for lack of service by extending their subscriptions by the time lost.

Since I already paid Roku for the year, I cannot stop payment.

I want to know if Roku company has enough pride and integrity in its service to do the right thing for its customers.

Same response users get to any problem from Roku. No help, just busywork.

Re: ROKU KICKS OUT BRITBOX WHEN APP IS LOADING

My issue is identical to yours...with the identical response by Brit Box. The issue has gotten worse over the past several months (I used to be able to get on occasionally...now I can't. I pay through ROKU. We have a different brand of TV...so don't scrap your Sharp TV. It's not the TV, it's either ROKU or Britbox.

I'll give it another month before I quit the Britbox subscription.

Re: solved: Sharp Roku TV Britbox app crashing

I won’t give all of the backstory because it’s not necessary. The answer is: 

1. Delete the Britbox icon from your list.

2. Cancel your Britbox subscription from the Britbox website.

3. Return to the Roku streaming channels to locate the Britbox icons. I say icon(s) because on my streaming channel list there are two. Pick the icon that shows Roku Britbox and add it. 
4. Launch the channel and follow the prompts to subscribe to Britbox. It is the same price and works way better on Roku than the other app ever did.
