every thing keeps spinning.

I can't even get it to stop spinning long enough to choose an option. I'm even trying a hard reset!  Help!

Re: every thing keeps spinning.

All other apps work fine. Tubi, pluto, rumble and several other free apps all show video fine. Just Roku TV doesnt show anything. If I choose from live TV its just a black screen. If I choose an episode of ANYTHING in the Roku app it just come back to the same screen over and over again. I CANNOT WATCH ROKU CHANNEL and only ROKU CHANNEL.

I do not have a credit card on file. I have removed and readded Roku CHannel several times, power cycled, factort reset .... NO ROKU CHANNEL
