Unable to unlock hallmark channel.

I am unable to unlock the hallmark TV, even though My cable provider is listed and I sign in on it. In order to see any shows from the channel I have to cast it by apple airplay. I am able to see on my cell phone and on my tablet but not on my Roku Ultra which has been updated. I have remove the channel and reinstall it but it continue to tell me that the channel is not part of my cable subscription is incorrect, since I am able to see it on my cell phone and tablet. I already contact my cable provider and they say the problem is with Roku, since I can see it he channels in other devices.

Re: Unable to unlock hallmark channel.


After removing a channel, best practice is to clear the Roku's memory by restarting it  before reinstalling the channel.   Did you do this?  Without the restart you may not get a clean reinstall.

Depending on your Roku model and Roku version number you'll find the System restart option under either Settings > System or Settings > System > Power ... or you can just unplug from its power source for a few seconds then plug back in.
