Beta App - No Access to Channels

Beta App - No Access to Channels

Bought a 2nd Roku this weekend, activated the Beta App but am unable to actually access any channels on this 2nd Roku. Getting a "requires subscription" response.

 

Verified on the 1st Roku, am still able to access channels, same channels I had attempted to access on the 2nd Roku / Beta App combination. 

 

When I follow the link posted on the screen for my 2nd Roku, it's really uninformative. It's only a plan upgrade web page. Online chat is apparently gone, the bot is not helpful. I've read through the stock material ahead of purchasing the Roku as part of the decision making process. 

 

Searched over an hour of prior posts, didn't find anything similar that had been previously asked. But it's always tricky to find the *same* when describing these events.

 

My question then, is there a way to validate that I actually activated the Beta App on this 2nd Roku correctly? Or do I need to wait a certain amount of time before activation is actually completed before I can access channels? Or anything else I might be missed in the forms of steps needed to complete.
