TV Show on the Roku Channel is Dubbed in Spanish

I’ve been watching Highway to Heaven when all of a sudden starting from season 2, episode 9 everything is dubbed and subbed in Spanish.  I tried playing the next several episodes after that and those were also in Spanish.  I couldn’t find any settings to switch it back to English.  Is there actually a way to do that and I’m just missing it?

I am currently having the same issue.  It was fine and now it is all converted over, I have checked my settings and updated my device and it is still wrong.  I hope a fix is coming soon.

@WatchinTV 

You can watch "Highway to Heaven " on Filmrise Family, Tubi, and Pluto Channels.  All these are free channels/apps and are playing correctly in English.  

You can use the Search feature from Home Screen of your Roku and see all the available Channels/apps it is currently playing on.

Re: Language changed on Highway to Heaven

It is now January 31 and the issue still isn’t resolved.  If this issue isn’t resolved I will no longer be using roku.  Seems this could be a ploy to get ppl interested enough to go buy it.  I’m all for glitches and working then out, but looking back this has been going on long enough and not just for this show.

Re: Language changed on Highway to Heaven

I was just about to come here to post an update but @Steph32886 beat me to it.

Update: Today is Feb. 1.  S2 E18 "To Bind the Wounds" on The Roku Channel is still in Spanish.  (The problem was first reported on Nov. 19, 2021.)

Highway to Heaven fans: Pls know that all 5 seasons are now available for free in English on Tubi, Pluto, IMDB, BYU, Plex, Filmrise, Crackle and also on Peacock if you have it.  

My Comment: Overall, I still love Roku and I'm sticking with it (for now).  To be fair, Roku has improved.  For example, a "Live TV" choice now appears on the Roku main menu on the left side.  I appreciate not having to dig through menus to start live TV.  And, the promised new live TV features arrived last year (favorite/hide/manage/filter channels).  I dislike that I can't watch Highway to Heaven in English on The Roku Channel.  It's annoying.  And I find it odd that they would let so much time pass and not resolve this issue.  Don't they care about their customers?  So, I'm not thrilled with this unresolved issue, but with 7 or 8 other ways to stream the show, it's not bad enough to cause me to ditch Roku.  So, this streamer is still staying with Roku (for now).
