How to Fix It When TNT Won’t Activate on Roku

Troubleshooting issues with Roku channels

There are several reasons why TNT stops working on your Roku, and the problem can present itself in different ways:

  • TNT for Roku may show a message asking for the activation code after you have already completed the activation step.
  • TNT for Roku may appear as enabled on your computer screen but not reflected on the Roku device.
  • The TNT application never goes beyond the activation screen.


The activation error with TNT usually appears when you try to activate the application for the first time. Because there is no login screen on the app itself, you must activate it through another device such as a laptop or tablet.

Regardless of how you see the error, there are a few steps you can take to try and get DTT (or other channels) working on your Roku again.

The original Roku 1 and 2 players are no longer supported by the TNT app, it may cause compatibility issue.

Cause of activation errors on the TNT application

One of the causes of the activation problem with the TNT app could be the strength of the Wi-Fi. If the signal is too weak, the app will have trouble connecting.

Another possible cause is a forgotten or wrong password, or cookies stored in your web browser. If you tend to stream to many different apps, your cookie cache may contain too much data. It’s always good to clean the cache once in a while if you plan to use a lot of different streaming apps.

The third cause could be the app itself, which might have been corrupted and require reinstalling and restarting. Since the Roku device only turns off if the USB cable is connected to the TV instead of the wall, sometimes the device freezes like any other type of computer. Doing a reset is often a good way to go if none of the above options worked.

The DTT app depends on you having an active cable subscription; without it, you cannot stream with the TNT application.

How To Fix It When TNT Roku App Won’t Activate

Clear cookies from your browser. This is the most common problem with the TNT activation process. Since you are using a web browser to activate the application, your cookies may need to be deleted.

This process is similar on several different web browsers, including Chrome, Edge, and Firefox.

Reinstall the TNT channel. There are times when the TNT channel gets corrupted. To fix this, try deleting the app from your Roku and then reinstalling the channel to get a fresh start.

Check the strength of the wireless signal. A poor wireless connection can have a big impact on the quality of your streaming session. If the signal strength on your Roku is weak, the device may have trouble connecting to the DTT streaming app.

  • Open the Roku home screen.
  • Click on Settings.
  • Click on Settings > Network.
  • The signal strength will be displayed on the screen as Excellent, Good, Fair or Poor.
  • If the signal strength is good or bad, you might want to restart the Roku, restart your router and modem, or get a Wi-Fi signal booster.

    Since Roku devices don’t have a physical power button, you’ll need to completely unplug the Roku to perform a hard reboot. Unplug, wait 10 seconds, then plug the power cord back into the outlet.

    Reset your Roku. If all else fails, try resetting your Roku case or key. A factory reset is a last resort, but it can eliminate many errors that are not resolved with the steps above.

    Factory resetting your Roku device will erase any channels you have installed and all of your network data, as well as any personal data or settings. This should be a last resort option, and you should ensure that all your usernames and passwords are stored elsewhere before starting the process.
