    I have tried to add DirecTV now for weeks to Roku. When I click to add channel I get a message “Channel install failed.” Can anyone help.

      Hi, did you try going into the settings and telling it to update manually? It doesn’t normally take weeks to do updates but you do sometimes need to do that after installing a channel.
