I've been watching a show on the roku channel for several days now. It doesn't show up on the panels, I have to use the search function from the main menu, then select the roku channel from the list of channels that have the show.
Today when I did this I got an error to check my network settings. I did all the usual things, reset the router, did a system restart. Checked my connection in settings and it said everythung was fine. Tried again and got the same result. I tried loading a show from the roku channel directly and it started playing just fine. Went back to search and brought up my show and got the error again.
In summary, internet is fine, connection to roku is fine, shows in the roku channel play fine, but if I try to load a show from the roku channel via the search function, I get a network error.
I don't believe Earth: Final Conflict is available anymore on The Roku Channel, but I'm checking with those in the know to be sure. I'll update this thread Sunday or Monday, whenever I receive an answer.

It may be coming off, but I found it (and watched the first part of S1E1) while troubleshooting this last night around 8 pm ET.
This morning, it's not on the menu, It still shows in the search menu, but selecting it from The Roku Channel gets me the error OP was reporting.
(i) Network error
There is a problem connecting to the network. Please check your network settings.
So, it appears that items don't always have the same availability for everyone at the same time. Also, items removed may still show up in Search. And, the error message OP reported and I confirmed above is the message that is generated, rather than a "no longer available" message.
