Opening PBS Kids channel causes Roku Express to crash

Tue Sep 17, 2019 5:35 pm

For the past couple of weeks, when we open the PBS Kids app on our Roku Express, the pink PBS Kids logo splash screen appears with our local Public TV station on it, then it goes to a colorful background with a "loading" wheel in the middle, but the loading wheel never moves, and after about a full minute of staying on that screen, the Roku reboots itself back to the Roku logo animation.  I have removed the channel, performed a system restart, then reinstalled it, I have checked for software updates and there are none, and I have pulled the power cord, but the same behavior persists.
