Error code 003 occurs when using Roku because the device cannot update the software, even when connected to the Internet. In some cases, error code 003 also refers to a situation where you cannot connect to multiple channels via an Internet connection.

There are two main reasons why you cannot update your Roku device: either the internal servers are down/maintained, or Roku has network connectivity issues. This can happen even if you are told that you are properly connected to the Internet.
