Resume locks up on Roku Channel

I have been trying to resume a movie on Roku Channel for a week. The resume function freezes with a 2/3 bar. It only does this on some movies, but not on TV shows, and it doesn't seem to be the ad blocking problem, since the ads show up on other shows.

I'm on a Sharp Roku TV, 9.4.0, build 4200-13. Here's what I have tried:

-- Starting movie over and fast forwarding to the spot. It won't play past that spot.

-- Rebooting using the power setting and unplugging the TV. No joy.

-- Deleting and adding the Roku Channel. Again, no joy.

Any suggestions?

Try to resume movie, it locks up. Try to start movie over, and it locks up at the resume point.

Not quite sure what you mean. What do I need to do when the freeze happens?

Re: Resume locks up on Roku Channel

We are having the same issue! We started watching Lost In Space tv series yesterday and stopped halfway through a show. When we go to put it back on, it doesn’t even show ‘resume watching’ unless we go to the Search and look the show up that way. However, even then we cannot resume the show!!!

Re: Resume locks up on Roku Channel

for me it locks up on all my Roku devices, it’s not a certain model it’s how the streaming is done on this channel. I’ve just started watching Army Wives on Roku Channel, (it’s a little different than watching on Hulu; the ad breaks are done at weird intervals, like, right after the next scene starts, then it shows Ad 1 of 4, starts going through the ads... at random times it will freeze and nothing I do helps, so I just leave it alone. Sometimes it takes a few minutes for it to resume on its own. It’s not my internet, because I can watch Prime or Netflix and this doesn’t happen, it’s only on this channel. It’s not the remotes either it’s the Roku Channel streaming, that’s what you guys have to check out, fix the streaming on the channel.
