Channel install failed

I am currently unable to download specific channels to include: Roku Channel and Amazon Prime Video - I get an error message that states "channel install failed". Netflix works well. 


Billing address and setup was with US address. I am using a router with a VPN - site selection is also in the US. 


Welcome any help and suggestions. Thanks!
