I have a ROKU 2 device, a month ago I was able to had BBC iPlayer, ITV, My5, NowTV, SKY but I returned from a few weeks holiday to find that my Device seems to have been wiped clean. the home screen only had NETFLIX ... I have looked to reinstall apps. they do not appear in the list. (Oh I am in London in case you are wondering ... ). I have searched under streaming channels - but no luck. it seems to only have obscure American content.
Re: Roku 2 - no more iPlayer, ITV, My5, NowTV etc.
I have a Roku 2 as well as a new RCA TV with Roku built in. On the TV I am able to watch Sesame Street shows, but on the Roku 2, it starts to open the Sesame Street page, but then gives and error and says the channel is not available right now, and to try again later, but it still doesnt work days later. Was Sesame Street a channel that was dropped on the Roku 2?
I'm thinking "No" because if the app is on the device, the developer is supporting it. If the device is excluded (that's by model number, not model name) then it can't be added to the device. And it's on your device.
Now, there were two devices called "Roku 2." There were four other devices called "Roku 2 [some suffix]" which are all no longer supported.
The Roku 2 model 2720 is essentially a souped-up Roku 1. It's officially supported, and many apps support it, but it's a very old and sluggish device.
The Roku 2 model 4210 is a Roku 3 on the inside. It's still old, but a much better device than the even older Roku 2 model 2720.
Which do you have?
