Some Roku customers have recently discovered the Pandora Channel on the Roku TV platform is not working on their televisions. The new issue is described as the Pandora logo appearing for a fraction of a second and immediately reverting to the home page when you try to launch it. This issue is described in many other ways as well. Some say that the launched app immediately reverts back to the home screen, while others complain that they keep getting an error when trying to log in to the Pandora channel, saying “unexpected error” and another error saying “Roku is not providing login information.”
Even though Roku users do not have to pay to stream music with advertisements on the Pandora channel on any Roku streaming device, one needs a Pandora premium subscription to stream the songs without advertisements. Since Pandora Music provides three levels of service: free, plus, and premium, none of these users can stream music and podcasts on Roku TV. This frustrated the Pandora plus and premium customers as they’d paid to listen to music without any interruptions.
