  • nguyenn Nguyenning (@nguyenn) reported

    Hey @TheCW please make CC for your streaming apps better for devices like Roku and Firestick. These big blocks of black backgrounds are terrible!

  • mushabear mushie is cold ✨😈🖤✨ (@mushabear) reported

    can crunchyroll ever get their shit together and fix their roku app lol

  • MaLaCoiD 🌹MaLaCoiD ⭕️☎️ (@MaLaCoiD) reported

    @BreatheNewWinds @Roku Update, factory reset, then if still not working, replace with MiBox or something else that is ChromeCast capable.

  • BerniesBack2020 Christopher Jackson 🚫✂️ (@BerniesBack2020) reported

    @BreatheNewWinds @Roku Only thing I can think of other than trying to see if it has a warranty. Otherwise maybe try calling the manufacturer or store that sold it to you and asking for help.

  • ItsEdSinclair Sinclair (@ItsEdSinclair) reported

    @mister_tee @Sonos FWIW I am really enjoying my little Addon T5. BUT I suspect this will be a problem with any IOT type devices over time and not just limited to Sonos. Had to buy a Roku cos the apps in the smart TV stopped being updated.

  • CombatVeteranDW Sandstorm (@CombatVeteranDW) reported

    @newsmax Dear Newsmax, there are issues streaming channel on Roku does not want to stream on Roku Ultra or Roku 3, it shuts down channel when you select live newsmax and goes back to Roku interface. I uninstall channel and reboot Roku, installed channel unsuccessful indeed!!

  • beezino24 the Total Package Bee (@beezino24) reported

    @RokuSupport hey! Lost my 3800x remote (wife did) and I was fine using my phone, but for some reason the roku is off my network! Help!

  • jazzymofo Jazzy♈Muthawhat? (@jazzymofo) reported

    Yes, a jail broken Firestick. Or Roku.

  • cozappz Cosmin Diga (@cozappz) reported

    @AmazonHelp Thank you for your help! As you said, I'll have to inquire @RokuSupport why my US bought and Belgium registered @Roku cannot find Amazon Prime.

  • RichardCasey Excelsior, Mr Lee. (@RichardCasey) reported

    @Netflixhelps No, it's just REALLY slow to load and buffer, then starts, then buffers again and stays that way. Every other service working through the roku box is fine.

  • PoliticalBee B.L. McMillan (@PoliticalBee) reported

    @mortgageconsult Same thing happened during #Schiff opening. For me, it’s an AT&T or Sling or Roku problem. It also happens occasionally on @maddow....but only when it’s super important. 🙁

  • PMTMike Mike Ward (@PMTMike) reported

    @newfoundmass I haven't subbed to either service in awhile now. I was more recently a HS subscriber. Their live streams were awful and using their Roku app was a nightmare.

  • Arrowsmith87 Flynn | (they/them) 🌙🌙🌙 (@Arrowsmith87) reported

    Everytime I go to get my Jojo fix Roku is trying to download ESPN on my system. Like seriously I dont give a shit about sports.

  • cinniharpy Amandalorian (@cinniharpy) reported

    @SeanKonkolicsAU Problem is I use it on my roku

  • Hotstarusa Hotstar US (@Hotstarusa) reported

    @sapricar Hi! We want to quickly get this fixed for you. Hence, we request you DM the details of your Roku device along with a screenshot of the error to assist you further.

  • blairwitchgreen Bennie 2 MILLION WORDS (@blairwitchgreen) reported

    @LukeSouthworth I went back and forth between the Twitch app on my Roku and my Twitch homepage putting in various codes. My login seemed to work on the Roku, but I noticed that it didn't show my favorite streams. I closed the app and when I tried to open it again it locked up again.

  • Shiftyeyes82 (¬_¬) Shiftyeyes (@Shiftyeyes82) reported

    @blairwitchgreen I believe Twitch removed their app from the Roku store some time ago. I had issues with it as well. If you had it installed before they removed it, it continued to work, but it started getting super buggy for me about 5-6 months ago.

  • Texana27 Texana (@Texana27) reported

    Do not buy @ROKU televisions. Have to restart repeated to sync the picture and voice everytime turned on. #Terrible

  • kimftwdw Kim🇵🇭🎗| 3 (@kimftwdw) reported

    I swear my life has been crazy this 1st month of 2020. First it’s my fridge breaking and now our cable box is broken. Thankfully we have Roku devices and I have an Xbox that we were able to subscribe to some streaming apps for the mean time.

  • Tigger4046 John Hilla (@Tigger4046) reported

    Sigh. Ok @Google you win, I fold! I'll let you be my dedicated host, but I need to fix a mess. But will talk about that later. I have to decide a plan. And I'm not a happy camper at the moment so I'm going to put myself in timeout or bed. @Roku your giving me a headache. : P

  • ZenRebelDiva Rebeldiva (@ZenRebelDiva) reported from Henderson, Nevada

    The @amazonfiretv is a piece of crap. Telling me it’s critically low on storage then won’t let me uninstall crap apps I never use! I’m sticking to @Roku I’ve used them for over 10 years and never had this problem with any of them.

  • Roger_Pena54 Roger Peña (@Roger_Pena54) reported

    @Netflixhelps I use a Roku Stick. When I highlight the Netflix icon on my TV screen, it goes dark & stays that way. Currently watching Netflix on my iPad with no problem, so it's either Roku, the TV and/or Netflix there.

  • ashubert A Shubert (@ashubert) reported

    @RokuSupport @Ask_Spectrum the Spectrum app that you force updated on older Roku devices last week, causes the Roku to crash and reboot, several times per day. Behavior occurs on my Streaming Stick and Roku Premiere + at my home and at my girlfriends.

  • chuckheffernan 🧢No Morons for President! (@chuckheffernan) reported

    @YouTubeTV Need to FIX your Roku app! When one goes to recorded program and try to exit it freezes. I AM NOT THE ONLY INE HAVING THIS PROBLEM! FIX THE APP!

  • ByteChomper BitByte 🏒 (@ByteChomper) reported

    @KlowdTelevision lately your Roku app, among many channels used with my RokuTV, is the only showing buffering issues. And they seem to be getting worse.

  • ThingsI59746295 ThingsILike (@ThingsI59746295) reported

    .@Swiffer @audible_com @ItsFlo Fun Fact: I’ve been muting your ads tonight because @hulu_support refuses to fix the volume issue that has plagued their Roku app for over a month. I have a deeply negative association with anyone who advertises on @hulu

  • FlyRy23 Hungry Bogart (@FlyRy23) reported

    @HBOGOhelp @trekker34 I know how to use my Roku, thank you. I had to watch the new ep on the Samsung TV app and last week I watched on my Chromecast. Please fix these roku issues.

  • flowmastr1x Allen Roe 🍍 (@flowmastr1x) reported

    @VuduSupport @NVIDIASHIELD trying to log in and my password has never changed and meets requirements I have no problems on iOS or Roku is this a app bug

  • BklynBckstretch Teresa Genaro (@BklynBckstretch) reported

    @angman8 @turfnsport @NYRABets Yes. With Roku, not Chromecast. The problem is widespread & NYRA has acknowledged it

  • AshleyNerd4Life Ashley Robbins (@AshleyNerd4Life) reported

    @Roku I am got my dad a Roku with the headset remote option. He is hard of hearing. He loves the free western channel and can hear it with no problems with his Roku earbuds!

  • MrImpact_blog 🦉Mr IMPACT Blog 🦉 (@MrImpact_blog) reported

    @HighspotsWN Yeah, my Roku is awful so if I can get hold of a Chromecast then I'll be upgrading 😂

  • GamerGeeksTodd SNARCast Productions (@GamerGeeksTodd) reported

    @DarthChillash I had that same issue with Sling on my Android TV. Kept creeping out on me and I had to reboot the Shield to get it to work again. Roku worked fine, as well as the Xbox app (which used to always give me problems.) But the Shield Android TV app it the worst.

  • MrImpact_blog 🦉Mr IMPACT Blog 🦉 (@MrImpact_blog) reported

    @ronrobiins @HighspotsWN My Roku is awful, everything lags.

  • Roadwarrior627 Roadwarrior627 (@Roadwarrior627) reported

    @TheNYRA Not just Roku, as far as I know. Not working for Android or Amazon Fire, either.

  • iChrisLehman Christopher Lehman (call Congress: 202-224-3121) (@iChrisLehman) reported

    @JenAnsbach Love our AppleTVs 😎 Have some family with a Roku box (not the stick), they haven’t had any issues. I do prefer the AppleTV interface.

  • TheNYRA NYRA (@TheNYRA) reported

    *We are working to resolve the Roku streaming issue as quickly as possible and apologize for any inconvenience*

  • _ShesJustJhaz Melaninaire (@_ShesJustJhaz) reported

    GiGi wants a fire stick. I’m trying to explain to her that most people that have it, have it jail broken. She is not tech savvy at all And I don’t want to calling me when she her movies ain’t downloading 😂😂 I’m going to tell her to get a Roku and call it a day.

  • JenAnsbach Jennifer Ansbach (@JenAnsbach) reported

    @alysonbeecher We reset the router and have no problems streaming Netflix through the Blu ray. The Roku is even closer to the router but it shuts off. :(

  • alysonbeecher Alyson Beecher (@alysonbeecher) reported

    @JenAnsbach Maybe. Seriously haven’t had issues with my Roku but have had issues with my internet- wires to the house.

  • alysonbeecher Alyson Beecher (@alysonbeecher) reported

    @JenAnsbach I have had my Roku for 5+ years and I have had no problems.

  • vav717 Victor Valencheck (@vav717) reported

    @fanatiztv_en Team. Issue not resolved yet. I just restarted my Roku and issue persists. Also, my Android App is also experiencing same rewind issue. I tested other channels that are fine. No issue.

  • zippytrippy Frank Fazio 🇨🇦 (@zippytrippy) reported

    @blue_nin9 I believe @KentGruber did a conference talk on the Roku hacking thingy. He may be able to help.

  • akillies akillies (@akillies) reported

    @TheNYRA @NYRABets nyranow app for roku or fire tv not working, live an head on nothing the others work

  • stephenj159 Stephen J (@stephenj159) reported

    Your support is shocking @RokuSupport @RokuUK. Over a week of back and forth and your agent has only just understood my issue! Absolutely no chance of resolution and seemingly no way to be escalated to someone higher up. I made a big mistake by switching to Roku.

  • gnomeicide Cab Davidson #Remain #Rejoin (@gnomeicide) reported

    ...now we lazily stream Spotify to the tellybox via the roku or whatever else is turned on. But playing a record, cassette, CD or radio was fine. Connections all seemed good. Turns out the problem was my cheap ass DAC...

  • rpchelder RH (@rpchelder) reported

    @klwatts Captioning always seems to be a problem for @PrimeVideo especially with @Roku or @Chromecast

  • getinjonathan getinjonathan (@getinjonathan) reported

    @TheGloballer @AmaraCNN @holmescnn Use your provider credentials to login to CNNGO and boom! CNNi is back in your life. Download the app to your TV or Roku stick. Where there is a will, there is a way.

  • Lupinfan83 Lupinfan83 (@Lupinfan83) reported

    @yourmonamie @_nerdiee @FUNimation That’s on my Roku, the iPad app never given me an issue

  • drennan_doug Doug Drennan (@drennan_doug) reported

    Absolutely amazing, near a hundred years ago PT Barnum used to deceive people with a sign in the big top that said,”this way to the egress” only to find themselves outside. The same scam still works today whether it’s the demoncrat party or a scam company like Roku. Caveat Emptor

  • mdoverkamp Kamp (@mdoverkamp) reported

    @marchmaps @blueshockeygrl I wonder if there is a horror/thriller type Roku or Firestick app that has all of these available to watch. Could help Johnna find her dads movie too!!

  • scarberry field elf barbarian. (@scarberry) reported

    @DubiousUnicorn @Shudder this stuff happens to me on my roku. delete the app, re-download it and sign it. it should fix.

  • YeezyKableezy the glengarry leads (@YeezyKableezy) reported

    @EsotericCD Plex Media Server + Plex Media Player. Server runs on your laptop. Player runs as an app on your Roku or similar. Or, your laptop has an HDMI out port. That's a pretty common solution to the problem nowadays.

  • DubiousUnicorn 🦄 (@DubiousUnicorn) reported

    Hey @Shudder, I’m having a weird issue where I can’t get Tammy and the T-Rex to play (on Roku). It goes to load the movie, then backs out back to the previous screen. Every time it’s the same thing, and has been doing this since yesterday. It just won’t play it.

  • allthepaper Len take 8 (@allthepaper) reported

    Yay!!! My exercise circuit can finally power the Roku properly! The problem ended up being pretty mundane; I had components kind of spread out on the breadboard and the USB powering the Roku was pretty far away physically from the incoming USB power...

  • Cassandra_Carr Cassandra Carr (@Cassandra_Carr) reported

    @sjpoletti I'm watching TV. I have Roku, currently binging Worst Cooks in America.

  • MujeebS Mujeeb Shah-Khan 🇮🇳🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@MujeebS) reported

    @LexAlexander @duresport Of course they’ve made it easy if you want to add either Roku or an Amazon Fire Tv stick from anywhere to $30-50 or less. Solves that problem if you wish.

  • uncburkman Joshua Burk (@uncburkman) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum It's been doing this for weeks. The freezing and random rewinding a few seconds back is frustrating. It does this on multiple Roku devices. Only this app gives me issues on my Roku.

  • teebeepresents Teebee Presents 🎙️🎥❤ (@teebeepresents) reported

    @hulu please fix the @Roku issue logging customers out to have to sign back in all the time which I have contacted you many times to fix. It is annoying after over a year it is still happening. It should not take that long to fix this! #streamingissues

  • TBerardi_WMFD Travis Berardi (@TBerardi_WMFD) reported from Ontario, Ohio

    @nhtrucker1986 @AndyJardy @wmfdtv @Roku Oh no problem. I’ll keep you updated on it
