    @ATTHelp I'm a NFL Sunday Ticket online subscriber. I can login to all my devices except my Roku TV & XBOX - It says "incorrect username/password". But if I'm logged in to another device it says, "You must logout from computer", so I know the password works fine. Please help!

    help my psvue will not come on back on my roku tv

  • BryJax44 Bryan Jackson (@BryJax44) reported

    @MaseDenver @DIRECTV @DIRECTV is the worst! Only get a signal if it’s 80 and not a cloud in the sky! Went with getting a Roku and subscribing to PS Vue. Went from paying $280 a month to $74! And you can download the Sunday ticket app to your roku.

  • looseleaves1205 looseleaves1205 (@looseleaves1205) reported

    It’s working fine on AppleTV, so must be a Roku app issue.

  • Hotstarusa Hotstar US (@Hotstarusa) reported

    @Jay_Prakash88 Hi! Please know that we do not support Insignia TV and hence, you are facing issues. However, you can use third-party devices such as Google Chromecast, Amazon Fire Stick (External) or Roku TV Stick (3 and above) to watch content via Hotstar.

  • hulu_support Hulu Support (@hulu_support) reported

    @Chezziechezz Sorry about that, Chelsea! Our team has been made aware of this and currently investigating. While we don't have any ETA on a fix, we'll be sure to pass along this feedback. For now, some devices such as Roku may offer a volume leveling feature as a workaround!

  • Konducta4LFE John Cancilla84🌹 (@Konducta4LFE) reported

    @Playbox_hd & please fix; FMPL HD I can only stream movies with FMPL HD, using iPhone. When I try to Cast / DIAL to my Roku player & watch on tv it says: (Video Failed To Play). I was trying to watch; “Down & Out in Beverly Hills” I’m a VIP user and thank you for your help as always

  • 4everBLUJAY ^¤mhakuletzzz¤^ (@4everBLUJAY) reported

    @KapamilyaTFC please fix TFC channel on roku. Pls.

  • MikeInRedlands Mike Aguirre (@MikeInRedlands) reported

    @Craziwillow @Roku We should probably direct this issue to @RokuSupport. Please read this thread from the beginning.

  • MikeInRedlands Mike Aguirre (@MikeInRedlands) reported

    @Craziwillow @Roku This is happening to me as well. I posted the issue on the Roku forum 3 days ago and no one has yet to respond. Very bad customer service #Roku

  • TrumpsHamberduh AntiWhateverDTis (@TrumpsHamberduh) reported

    @Howard_Donnie @RokuSupport I'm unsure about that since my roku is installed within my tv. Hopefully tech will be able to correct that issue too asap.

  • BrookeGittings Brooke Gittings (@BrookeGittings) reported

    @missmaesmom @Roku Yeah it seems like this is a common issue and the fix is to get a new one - it looks great that's why I'm frustrated. Haha I wanted to use it now! 😉

  • drhenning Doug Henning (@drhenning) reported

    @LFN Why we love the PLN.... Only problem is the STADIUM App is gone from ROKU so I can't watch most events on my TV except connecting to computer....

  • lilipad1020 lilipad 576E44 3QGJ3TX (@lilipad1020) reported

    @curly__michelle oh, i'm signed in on all tvs, but it's the roku one that gives me buttloads of commercials. and always at the worst times too! like right as the ghost reached out from the monitor to get that creep.

  • GuitaristHoward Howard (@GuitaristHoward) reported

    @fuboTVsupport Help not able to watch @FCBarcelona vs Valencia on demand on @Roku. When I select the game, Rock just takes me back to home screen

  • TrumpsHamberduh AntiWhateverDTis (@TrumpsHamberduh) reported

    @MeMikekushes @Roku @RokuSupport It's crazy. I've had roku tv's in the past. We actually just returned one bc it was defective out of the box with lines across the screen and it was all black and white. I have never had issues before. To now not be able to use a new tv bc the Roku site is down is ridiculous.

  • shipyplier Aaron (@shipyplier) reported

    @Roku I can't even sign up my new TV. I'm not able to get pass the the login screen.

  • pointer_ivan Ivan pointer (@pointer_ivan) reported

    @Roku and @RokuSupport - Seems y'all have an outage. Cannot seem to get the activation code to work on the link page. Seems I'm not the only one having trouble right now.

  • Dionelipops black (@Dionelipops) reported

    @RokuSupport @Roku can you guys fix your roku link so I can activate my tv smh

  • Dionelipops black (@Dionelipops) reported

    @Roku can you guys fix your roku link so I can activate my tv smh

  • David_E_SC David Edwards (@David_E_SC) reported

    @Roku Nothing! Because the roku website won't allow me to create an account and activate my new roku!. Yall need to fix that. I don't want to have to return my roku!

  • Adam__Weiss Adam Weiss (@Adam__Weiss) reported

    @RokuSupport I am trying to create a Roku account to activate my TCL tv and Roku keeps saying "oops, something went wrong" when I try to set up an account. Pls help.

  • AlanGarkle Alan Garkle (@AlanGarkle) reported

    @RokuSupport old (but not so old) Roku was super slow. Caved and bought a new one. Now I can’t activate it or sign up for an account. Error messages all around with no explanation. Thanks for such a stellar product and easy setup! #ShouldaBoughtaFireStick

  • dodgergregg Gregg (@dodgergregg) reported

    @DOMS209 @Roku Must be I’m having the same issues.

  • DOMS209 Dominic Marquez (@DOMS209) reported

    Is @Roku having technical difficulties because I can’t login and the password reset is not working!

  • beebowallace beebo wallace (@beebowallace) reported

    @RokuSupport your support is incredibly and not user friendly. I can not create an account to link to my new Roku device. And it seems like I need an account to access support. I keep getting an error message that there is something wrong but not telling me what is wrong.

  • HobbesQ HobbesQ, First of His Name, Emissary to the Goblin (@HobbesQ) reported

    @Roku keep getting error messages trying to create account or link using the code on the TV

    @Roku Best: Mortal Kombat Worst: Double Dragon

  • smorton101368 Titans Homer (@smorton101368) reported

    @PlayStation @AskPlayStation either roll your changes back to the Roku app or fix this damn “oops can’t load the stream” bug in it. It’s ridiculous how often this is happening. Next time let’s do some thorough testing before rolling out changes.

  • RyanSides Ryan Sides (@RyanSides) reported

    @AstrosCounty I try :) But no, no problems watching. Works fine on web, mobile, fire stick and Sony tv. Don’t own a roku.

  • zpinternational ZP International (@zpinternational) reported

    You'll find Doctor Tyranny's Terrible Television episodes on there. #Roku #tvhorrorhost #tvhost #bmovies

  • Jeremy_CSZ #Ble55ed™ & #BeatWKU (@Jeremy_CSZ) reported

    @GoodTymeCharles I had zero problems with watching Stadium through Roku TV either

  • CraigPokorny Craig Pokorny (@CraigPokorny) reported from Omaha, Nebraska

    @FOXSports you’re TV apps are killing us! Roku streams die on commercials and Apple TV errors when loading content!

  • jordanpenner Jordan Penner (@jordanpenner) reported

    Still having a few issues with my @Roku remote unpairing, but the app for my phone really bridges the gap when that happens.

  • THverseMK Talachucho (@THverseMK) reported

    @Roku Best: Resident Evil Degeneration Worst: Mario Bros, of course

  • CraigPokorny Craig Pokorny (@CraigPokorny) reported from Omaha, Nebraska

    @FS1 every time your roku app goes to commercial, jumps thru x of 8 ads then goes back to the list of streams. Please fix this before the @Huskers game. It’s driving us nuts!

  • jakekane1124 Jake Kane (@jakekane1124) reported

    Hey @FS1 your app on the roku is absolute garbage. I’m trying to watch the gophers game and every time it goes to commercial it kicks me off. Fix this shit

  • WhimsicalZombie Farándula (@WhimsicalZombie) reported

    I can only watch on my old laptop that has crappy video or my cell. Cell has nice video but it is so small & I cannot use my phone for other stuff. Roku was the perfect fix but @espn is making it sooo hard. #UFCVancouver

  • bridgers_kirk Kirk (Mental Mentalist) (@bridgers_kirk) reported

    @JasonRileyWDRB @jeffgreer Download pluto tv app on roku, android, apple. Free, sign in go to sports catagory and find stadium network. Boom

  • dannywhodunnit B A S I C _ D A D (@dannywhodunnit) reported

    @hammel11 If you're watching it on a Roku device I have had no issue with Roku TV

  • ClaireCWrites Claire C. Holland (@ClaireCWrites) reported

    @micheleneggen My Roku tv usually plays videos on Netflix fine, but whenever I try to browse it makes my tv freeze up. I wish they'd get rid of all the autoplay because I think that's part of the problem.

  • hulu_support Hulu Support (@hulu_support) reported

    @MATTALLENN We apologize for the volume trouble. Matt! Our team is aware of this and working to fix it. While we don't have an ETA to share, we appreciate your patience while we work to clear this up. For now, some devices, such as Roku may offer a volume leveling feature as a workaround!

  • perspectvortex Big Screen (@perspectvortex) reported

    @jaredv87 Honestly the quality of reddit streams sources had improved significantly over the years. And I can beam from the PC up to the Roku (or Apple to Apple TV)

  • PatternProfits Ben (@PatternProfits) reported

    Plenty of other familiar names with strong growth and charts that are not broken. Again, just a partial list... $BZUN $FSLR $COUP $DXCM $GSX $QTWO $SHOP $ROKU $TAL

  • UserExperienceY Happy Customer (@UserExperienceY) reported

    @rokusupport i have so many problems with my roku streaming stick :(

  • brentfincham Brent Fincham (@brentfincham) reported

    @NBCSports I signed up for PLGold this morning to watch #WOLCHE and #PLGoalRush on Roku. At this point I want a refund. The Roku app is TERRIBLE! GoalRush plays for 30 secs then shows loading screen. #WOLCHE will start playing about every 5th time I select it. Unacceptable!

  • jeff356 Jeff Process (@jeff356) reported

    @JerkDanielson @RGHJR46 @DIRECTV @ABCNetwork @espn @hulu @YouTubeTV @Roku @amazonfiretv Agree and thanks man for the time and energy to help us out in figuring out what may happen. Did not know ESPN + did not carry regular ESPN programs that is good news if we want a deal cause with sides would lose without a deal it seems

  • JerkDanielson JD (@JerkDanielson) reported

    @jeff356 @RGHJR46 @DIRECTV @ABCNetwork @espn @hulu @YouTubeTV @Roku @amazonfiretv There is no way in hell a deal doesn’t happen quickly. Worst case scenario is it goes dark for a couple hours or a day. Anything more is mutual destruction. Everyone’s ATT and Directv bill will go up, it’s just a matter of how much and what they get in return.

  • HanFliesCasual Guylaen O'Connor ♣️ (@HanFliesCasual) reported

    @bobbyllew 15 secs of thinking my roku was broken

  • HanFliesCasual Guylaen O'Connor ♣️ (@HanFliesCasual) reported

    .@FullyChargedShw there are fifteen whole seconds of BLACKNESS, A VAST DARK EMPTIENESS at the beginning of the recent vid and I thought my Roku was broken.

  • aaronaustin95 Aaron Smith (@aaronaustin95) reported

    @gusgus1330 I shouldn’t have to add another subscription when the game is televised in my market and I have a paid subscription for the channel. @roku @FSMidwest and @Spectrum create a problem by not working together

  • MBilunes MB (@MBilunes) reported

    Berman and TJ are back with Sunday NFL Primetime...exclusively on ESPN+. Anybody that actually gives a shit is going to need help with their Roku.

  • adamjsimon Adam Simon (@adamjsimon) reported

    @AdamBKessler @EntStrategyGuy Apple’s TV app is now shipping on smart TVs, as well as Fire TV devices. They’re negotiating with Roku and will probably land there as well. Distribution will not be an issue, and consumers will use Apple/Amazon/Roku based on brand affinity and original content.
