Flixter app for Roku issue with Game of Thrones

So, it was nice that Flixter updated its Roku app so that it was actually more than a glorified trailer viewer. Most of my UV library can be viewed, and viewed successfully, but whenever I try to play any of the 3 seasons of GoT I get "An Unexpected Error Has occurred try again later" message. Now, I can watch GoT on my computer, my ipad, and on my android phone thru Flixter without a problem, but I'd really like to watch it via the Roku on my television.

Anyone else have this problem, and know how to fix it? Or who I would need to contact to even try and address the problem?

Are they viewable through Vudu?

no. they are not. however, it is not just a GoT issue. Any of the movies play fine. Any of the TV shows (GoT, Grimm, Strike Back, Banshee, etc) give me this error. I've been on with both Flixter and Roku support, and neither could figure it out, but are "looking into it".

I don't think any TV shows work on the Flixster app. I don't know why. But the Flixster app sucks. It won't play a lot of titles.

For the HBO/Cinemax shows, you need to redeem the UV code at both Flixtser and Vudu. Redeem it at Flixster to get it in your UV library, then redeem at Vudu to get it in your Vudu library.

yeah, I usually redeem only on Vudu, but some of these didn't allow for that option. It was Flixster only.

I didn't have any problem redeeming Game Of Thrones (all 3 seasons) at both Flixster and Vudu.
