Roku Media Player overseas

Hello

I have a TV with built-in roku, purchased in USA, but I live overseas. i'm on 9.0. Roku media player does not work anymore, is this due to a geo-restriction?

I can't imagine any reason RMP would be geo-restricted. It doesn't connect to anything outside your personal network, so it doesn't know where it is anyway. RokuDale will need to weigh in on this.

There is no geo restriction for RMP.

When you moved, did you get a new IP address? Is the media stored in a directly connected drive or is it connected to a DLNA server? If a DLNA server, it could be because your local IP changed when you moved. Just guessing.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.
