    @Roku Hi Roku, every time I watch anything every view minutes it just goes back to the Home Screen please help

  • Just_J0hnathan Just.Johnathan (@Just_J0hnathan) reported

    Does anyone else have issues streaming @rumblevideo to their @Google ChromeCast? At this point I have to watch Rumble videos through @Roku streaming.

    @NitroDawg16 @Roku My Roku worked well for abt a year. Then it started conking out every few minutes. Now its completely dead! Yo Roku -- help! @TheRokuChannel #23DaysofRoku

  • RichKuser Pissed Off Patriot (@RichKuser) reported

    @Roku You all clearly, CLEARLY are liars when you say you value your customers and want them to have a great TV experience. You provide ZERO support options to assist anyone with billing/payment issues. You take ones money and run laughing to the bank and provide no support. None

    Yes it's January, the worst month for retail sales. But $Roku's moat seems to be alive in the U.S. Seeing dominance in the U.S. in TVs (again)... AND... strong dongle sales (again). Roku seems to be keeping ~ 40% market share right now in the U.S. Still number one.

    @XfinitySupport So, this has to be a known issue with your xFinity Stream app. I can't steam on Roku or my iPhone. Did you even look to see if you are having an issue? Because I doubt it.

  • phillee_58 Phil Lee (@phillee_58) reported

    @AppleTV can’t stream worth a ****. My $40 ROKU at home works flawlessly and this $200 device drops the connection constantly then doesn’t work at all. Anyone want to take this off my hands for $50?

  • sfobrian ..:: Brian ::.. (@sfobrian) reported

    @XfinitySupport is xfinity stream down right now? I'm getting the error message "This Video Cannot Be Played" Error TVAPP-00231. This is on Roku.

  • MeBlackbird2 Blackbird2🔞 (@MeBlackbird2) reported

    Anyone else been having problems with YouTube ads on Roku?

  • 35and5 Bullpen Catcher (@35and5) reported

    @ebajek85 I’ve never used Chromecast, so wouldn’t know one way or another. AppleTVs and Rokus (although Roku does make a really cheap model that seems iffy) work well.

  • ricki_smalls Little Wasabi (@ricki_smalls) reported

    And why not spell it out on the website? I’ve already been charged and found out Roku tv isn’t compatible w/ the Trio Basic plan trying to login. I wouldn’t have upgraded my account if there was a warning BEFORE.

  • Spyda1221 Spyda (@Spyda1221) reported

    Help: @Netflixhelps @netflix Netflix app keeps crashing, every 2-5 minutes on Roku TV. It’s been happening all month to thousands of users. Please help or possibly route me to get a refund for this month?. Thank you in advanced. #Roku

    @BallyPanthers Roku app not working just shows postgame

  • shaunk3000 shaunK (@shaunk3000) reported

    @SquidinTech Hi, just saw your review of the Roku express, and I see reviews are generally around UX and remote. I’ve been curious, is it assumed that they all ‘display’ the content similarly? Ex, would an HD Roku display quality for Netflix be exactly that of an HD Firestick’s?

  • AvittiaCharro Charro Avittia (@AvittiaCharro) reported

    @BreitbartNews How's that going to work? I have multiple homes and take my Roku with me when I travel. If they do this I'll just cancel.

  • RapazRodrigo Rapaz Rodrigo (@RapazRodrigo) reported

    @Saberspark Been looking for this but the only stuff I can find is what was made to promote it and things on people who worked on it's portfolios also found a Roku page but it dosn't work for me, not sure if it's because it doesn't exist anymore or because I'm using a vpn to try to view it.

  • fraanck1953 frank griffin (@fraanck1953) reported

    @Cultpix1 I downloaded your channel on Roku, but it doesn’t do anything. Help!

  • TOCB10 just mac 🌻 (@TOCB10) reported

    @OpenTexans At first, I unplugged my modem. Then I tried unplugging my tv and roku. But nothing worked. Changed channels and no problem!

  • jonkeymohnson **** trousers (@jonkeymohnson) reported

    So weird and annoying how i can cast njpw world from my phone to the roku in hd quality but it looks like absolute dogshit on any other device

  • YolmanUseche25 Yolman Useche (@YolmanUseche25) reported

    @RokuSupport hi my roku device keeps turning off by itself while I use it. what can I do to fix that?

  • KeepinUpWJiaEr JACKSON IN CALI AND CHICAGO 🫶🏾✨💕 (@KeepinUpWJiaEr) reported

    @Roku can y’all fix the Netflix app????

  • VikingSamurai7 VikingSamurai7 (@VikingSamurai7) reported

    @Crunchyroll , just a reminder that you have the worst @Roku app I have ever used and it’s an embarrassment to you and Roku. Honestly Roku should ban the app until it’s functional. @Sony should be ashamed they let you operate like this. Signed - every Roku user

  • flaugher Robert Flaugher (@flaugher) reported

    Whenever I try to watch the @AppleTV that's connected to my @Roku TV, I never get any sound. It's like the ATV can't connect to the soundbar. The sound works fine for all the apps on the TV and it even works fine with my @PrimeVideo TV. Anyone else have this problem?? #Apple

  • daniellecombs_ danielle (@daniellecombs_) reported

  • GreenHeronJim Jim (@GreenHeronJim) reported

    @AppleTV Why is your app for @Roku so glitchy?! 😡 Love your content, but annoying AF to watch! Please fix it!!!
