On May 30th, Roku streaming channels experienced an unexplained disruption, leaving impacted customers clueless with no idea what was wrong.
The company advised those customers to update the devices manually:
“Due to a global technical certificate expiration, select streaming channels on the Roku platform that rely on this certificate chain may not be working as expected. Please install a manual software update from Roku now.”
We always knew SSL certificates came with an expiration date, but we didn’t plan for the fact it’d be happening this year!
