The "not available in my location" appeared again here in Southern California tonight (November 19th, Saturday, 8:15pm) AFTER I watched a full movie with no problems. What is going on??? I've removed the channel and reinstalled the channel several times. I've even rebooted the box by pulling the power. The latter was done when CRACKLE froze at the main menu the first time around. My suggestion is to pull the channel, recode it, then test it throughly BEFORE it is released to the public. We are not talking about a private channel here. CRACKLE is one of the "featured" channels. It should work everytime!

I find it amazing that Roku has not addressed this issue publicly. I suspect it has something to do with their "partnership" with HBO. Check to see if the same time HBO Go became available, Crackle became disabled. The timing of it all seems a little uncanny. We always turn to Crackle when Netflix starts giving us fits because of their slow resets. Now without a word from Roku, suddenly it is no longer available in our area. That stinks of exclusive rights to a market and giving preference to a "partner".
If I am wrong than someone in high places needs to start getting more responsible with their communications with their customers. The folks at Netflix learned the hard way. It would be good of Roku to learn by their example and talk straight about this issue.
That's the most absurd thing I've ever heard. Roku's people chimed in in THIS THREAD about it being a problem, and working on it with Crackle. Not only that, it's still working for most people. So unless HBO+Roku+the Illuminati+swamp gas aliens are conspiring against buckeyes, you should double up on your medication, go back to bed, and think about what you typed up there.

Had Roku for one day. Started a movie on Crackle, stopped it and went to another channel. Tried to come back and it now says not available in my area.
Oddly, I can watch the same movie on my computer in the same room from http://www.crackle.com
Must be a Roku issue.
