Re: Now TV will not launch on Roku Express

@MorelloCherry NowTV have acknowledged the problem, and are working on a fix. In the meantime, if you do a software update on the affected device, if should roll back to a stable version.

 

Please let us know if it works.

Re: Now TV will not launch on Roku Express

I'm having exactly the same problem.  Was working around 8:15 but had stopped by 12:30.  Looks like it's trying to update to v6.4.2 but doesn't open or appear on home screen of either of my roku devices.  Tried everything up to and including a factory reset but no joy.  Raised a call with support but I think it's a problem with the update itself.

Re: Now TV will not launch on Roku Express

There are multiple threads about this issue but here’s what I’ve posted elsewhere.

It seems be affecting quite a few users since the App update. NowTV have been informed and are looking in to it…

Thanks for the reply.

 

Looks like it's been resolved now; I've now got the new version open on my Roku.  As a massive DC fan this couldn't have happened on a worse day.  Okay, so I'll have to wait a little bit longer to watch Justice League but it'll still be there tomorrow night (hopefully).

Cheers for the update. Yep. New update works. Annoying but resolved.

Still also not working on my Roku 3810EU player.  Starts up, thinks for a minute, then "Sorry, NowTV is not currently available".

Hi @desht  @JFS 

 

A new version of the app has recently been released normally a Roku were only check for updates once every 24 hours, but you can check for updates manually.

 

Go to 

settings > system > system update

 

If the app gets updated, you'll find that it simply has the new name of 'now'
