I just bought a Roku Express and it came with 4 shortcut channel buttons (Netflix, GloboPlay, HBO GO and Google Play) that I really like. The problem is that the GloboPlay button doesn't open the channel, when I press it goes to the main menu. The channel opens manually in the menu but with the shortcut button it doesn't work. The others shortcut button works fine.
It sounds like you may have created a Roku account that isn't located in your current region. If channels in your region are not available, it may indicate that your device is linked to an account that was created in a different region where that channel may not be offered by the channel provider. You'll want to make sure that you are using an internet connection located in the correct region when creating your account. You can check your IP address' reported location by visiting www.whatismyip.com - If you see an issue, you'll need to contact your ISP to help resolve any issue.
We would recommend creating a new Roku account in your region. For more information about how to create a new account, visit our Support page here: How do I create a Roku® account? Once your new account is set up, try to perform a factory reset on your device and link it to your new account.

I believe that you didn't understood me but I'll give more information:
My account region is fine (Brasil), I already use the channel Globo Play, I have a paid subscription that I use every day in Roku. If I click on the channel app directly on the menu it opens and I use it normally.
The problem is: When I try to open the channel with the Shortcut (quick) button on the remote control, the button with the Globo Play printed on it, the channel doesn't open, it doesn't show any message, it just opens the main menu.
This problem doesn't make me not use the channel, but I can't use the channel button on my remote control, it is very anoying.
I believe this problem occurs because the channel "Globo Play" that was only for Brazil, changed the name for "Globo Play International", and now the remote control "code" doesn't match with the new channel.
I think the solution is to make the new channel "GloboPlay International" works as the old channel, this way the remote control will match.
When previous channels changed names like Mgo to Fandango now, cbs AA to paramount+, or hbo now to hbo max it never made a difference in the remote quick access button. I did buy new roku remotes that came with new app keys that it took a month before the roku themselves knew of these commands and responded to them. That was back in 2013. See and wait it might take time for roku to be upgraded with new info.
