Re: History channel not working

Explain what you mean by “not working”? You launch the History channel and what happens? What does a remote have to do with this? Which Roku model do you have? Do other channel launch like Netflix, Hulu or HBO Max?

Please note that the proper steps for this are:

  1. Remove the app.
  2. Reboot the Roku.
    Roku: Settings > System > System Restart 
    Roku TV: Settings > System > Power > System Restart
  3. Reinstall the app.

All three steps, in that order.

Same for me = I click to launch the History Channel app and it just reboots to my home Roku screen.  The app never successfully launches.

@Bo87    I just added the History channel and it loads and plays. Which Roku model do you own?

Please note that the proper steps for this are:

  1. Remove the app.
  2. Reboot the Roku.
    Roku: Settings > System > System Restart 
    Roku TV: Settings > System > Power > System Restart
  3. Reinstall the app.

All three steps, in that order.

Re: History channel not working

Ditto for me.  The History Channel fails to launch/load/start on all three (3) of the Roku devices in my home.  It starts to load... and then just returns to the home menu.  The History Channel will not start.  I have left feedback every time, but that is probably just a waste of time.

I have tried removing the History channel, restarting the Roku and then re-installing the History Channel, but no change.

@blueskies_150  Roku doesn’t make the History channel. It’s Developed by A&E Networks. I loaded it up on my Roku TV and it works just fine. Reach out to A&E and see when they will be releasing an update for the Roku channel

I have the same issue and did exactly what you say and I click to launch the History Channel app and it just reboots to my home Roku screen.  The app never successfully launches.

I even rebooted my router and still the same result.

Did a factory reset on my Roku TV and still the same result.

I can access the History channel via app on my ipad and my PC with no issues so this is definately a Roku issue.
