Hi

The Fox News addon Kodi repository hasn't worked for over a month. Tried updating it and reinstalling it. It says error.

Can someone please look at it and sort it out for us. Need it desperately. Please do us a favour.

Regards

Registered to post here, it's not working for me either (Fox News version 4.0.5 / XBMC 18.5 Leia via Libreelec 9.2.0)

I get the following traceback in logs.

Code:

Please close this thread, there was a manual fix offered here that works for me - thanks all!

For the last 2 days, ONLY the Fox & Friends shows generate an Error and I've activated every log function I can see and not a single entry when I check the logs.

Other FOX News shows seem to work fine. I am on the FOX addon version 6.0.3,  KODI version 18.8.0, Android 9.0.0, on an NVIDA Shield {same problem on a Raspberry Pi}. Love the App as it is the only way for me to get FOX News.
