SDK, where to specify https instead of http - Need help with Brightscript

Hello. I just added a SSL certificate to my website and now all channels are failing. My fault, so I want to specify in my brightscript where to tell it to load from https instead of http:

Here is the code for my categoryFeed.brs - I tried to simply add https to the URL, but I had no luck. If anyone can help, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
