Many streaming services are now available for users to dive into hundreds of hours of content. However, as accessible as these services are, they don’t always work perfectly.

In this article, we’re looking at the Paramount Plus error code 124 and giving you six fixes for the problem.

Check your internet

The first thing you should do is check if your internet is working alright. If you’re on WiFi, check to see if you have an active internet connection and good signal strength. If you’re on mobile data, check to see if mobile data is working and that you have good network coverage.

Restart your device

At times, restarting your device can fix seemingly random issues. This also reloads all the files required for the browser to work in the memory, getting better performance and a clean cache. 

Clear your browser’s data

Corrupt files in your cache or otherwise can cause this error as well. Clear them out to see if you can get Chrome to work.

Step 1: Type in chrome://settings/clearBrowserData in your browser’s address bar and hit Enter.

Disable ad blocker

Intrusive third-party ad blockers can often interfere with the way sites work on your browser. If you see error code 124 when using Paramount Plus, it’s your ad blocker blocking some of the site’s functionality. Try disabling it and visiting the site to see if your problem is solved. 

Remove the channel and add it again

If you’re streaming Paramount plus on your Roku, try removing the channel and adding it again. To do so, go to the Roku home screen and press the * button on your remote. Once there, head over to Options and select Remove Channel. Now restart your Roku and add the channel to see if that solves error code 124.

Reinstall the app

If nothing else works, try to reinstall the app on your current device. Reinstalling will remove all files associated with the app and then download them again, removing any corrupt files that may hamper functionality in the process.
