  • wisteria_sky WisteriaSkyBoutique (@wisteria_sky) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum @jaylabmayer Same exact problem for me! Only it’s been going on 2 weeks now. It started once the Spectrum app was updated, then the Roku update a few days later. I restart Roku Express then delete and reinstall Spectrum App. After doing this 5-6 times, I can usually get it working.

  • chadbrodbeck chad brodbeck (@chadbrodbeck) reported

    @BigTrader65 I feel you man... sucks. I’ve blown up accounts before with options too. And over one free stick from the worst cable company on the planet. That Comcast stick won’t even dent ROKU revenue

  • Wrightandwrong Shaun (@Wrightandwrong) reported

    @TylerJonesLive @JayhawkSlant That's a WAY better takeaway than all the ****** fans unwilling to spend $5 a month on ESPN+ ( $25 for the season) or give their grandparents a firestick/roku and spend some quality time (30 minutes) showing them how it works.

  • JIGDRAGGER Joey Adams (@JIGDRAGGER) reported

    @Hisense_USA I think I would appreciate your roku integrated TVs actually being controlled via the included ir remote. It only works 1 in 10 button pushes. I have to use my smartphone. Got 2nd new remote=exactly same issue

  • ausmboomer Sheri Drips (@ausmboomer) reported

    My cable box is broken; so I go to my ROKU TV & watch ABC News. The other day they ran the ENTIRE drumpf rally. Today, they show clips alongside great programs (in the corner) of drumpf meeting with contractors in San Diego at the border FENCE. In the pic, were STEEL slabs.

  • dopeboy_french unorthodoc PhD (@dopeboy_french) reported

    Worst part about kam breaking my Roku is no more 3AM crunchy roll ://////////

  • NeelaSRivera Neela (@NeelaSRivera) reported

    @Roku For the control to just work consistently. The Roku remote ALWAYS gives me problems.

  • ecolive Eduardo C. Oliveira (@ecolive) reported

    @TVGloboInter I see issues with Sling on Globo that do not happen with other channels. Using Roku it looses a day of recorded shows and using amazon fireTV it produces dark screen from time to time.

  • jaylabmayer Jayden🍄☁ (@jaylabmayer) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum my spectrum app won't work on my roku. It has been like this for more than a day. It won't load or sign in, it will stutter and go to on demand then go back to the home screen on the roku. I don't even get any error codes.

  • JamieKarlHall Jamie Karl Hall (@JamieKarlHall) reported

    @tedneumanphoto Comcast is saying that they have a streaming app that can be viewed on Roku now... just wasn't sure of details and quality.

  • mdoerty Mike Dougherty (Michael John Dougherty) (@mdoerty) reported

    @bigjax3211 Disney + will cost me $1 more than I am paying for ESPN+ and Hulu - and both are in the bundle. Worst thing is my LG TV doesn’t have the apps. So I have to buy a Roku stick or Chromcast

  • JustaDawgAZ KenAZ (@JustaDawgAZ) reported

    @TeamYouTube The problem fixed itself over night. Using a Roku Ultra. Same thing used to happen with Hulu Live and only on the NBC feed, I'd send them my zip and the station call sign and they'd fix it. This is the first time I encountered it since I switched to YTL. Thanks 👍

  • fpw2020 Norcross Trader (@fpw2020) reported

    $ROKU Additionally, every quarterly conference call, $CMCSK is just going to announce the number of conversions to their streaming service. It will be awful news every quarter. $CMCSK will be followed bt $T and $VZ. Just bad voodoo on this stock.

  • JoeStefanelli Joe Stefanelli (@JoeStefanelli) reported

    @AntzMarching @Roku The remote for my Streaming Stick+ controls my Samsung soundbar with no problem.

  • douglastwoo Douglas (@douglastwoo) reported

    @Roku A mute button on remote. The 4 preloaded channels on the remote, be able to program them to your own channels. Would be nice if you could sign in to your channel provider on the Roku itself. Then whenever these apps ask for this info, it just auto logs it in.

  • TylerAMina Tyler A. (@TylerAMina) reported

    @DavidAmoyal @brlive I use B/R live on my roku, never had an issue, today purchased Juve vs Athleti, charged me, but doesn’t work. I’ve been on hold with customer support for an hour haven’t gotten a human yet. @brlive

  • thockin Tim Hockin (@thockin) reported

    @rothgar @dave_universetf My question is really whether Roku ultra can decode BD in real time, if the network was fast enough. No way to tell without trying. All my BDs are ripped directly, no transcode or recompressing, and I am disinclined to change that. Worst case I keep RasPlex, which is good tech

  • Grommish Donald Hoskins (@Grommish) reported

    @padresj My @TCL_USA @Roku uses the connection all the time, but never requires it.. Definitely broken in form (written from my cell as I await the ISP repair person for no Internet)

  • OppayahTwitR CJ (@OppayahTwitR) reported

    @OctoTrader @BillGriffeth @CNBCTheExchange @CNBC @CNBC #RapidFire $ROKU is not a streaming provider. It does not compete with Disney+, Apple TV+, and Netflix. These services actually help $ROKU to sell more device and offer more choice. You guys got it wrong! I am loading up on $ROKU today.

  • indianafanatic Jeff Schwartz (@indianafanatic) reported

    @CordCuttersNews @comcast @Roku "Sorry, but to subscribe to Xfinity Flex, you must lease one of our new xFi gateways. If you would like help leasing an xFi gateway and purchasing Xfinity Flex, please call us at 1-877-397-9821." Hard pass.

  • MWM76 MWM (@MWM76) reported

    $NFLX loading next weeks $250 puts on the cheap. Crash time like $ROKU coming imo!

  • iharsha18 Harsha (@iharsha18) reported

    It’s confusing why @Roku would be down with the onslaught of new streaming services when it should actually help. @jimcramer @MadMoneyOnCNBC

  • sssvenky Venky Srinivasan (@sssvenky) reported

    $ROKU potentially it will be the first touch of 10 EMA since since 8/5 weekly breakout. 50% retrace on weekly. Worst case 50 SMA at 127.72.

  • shaolintrader88 ShaolinTrader (@shaolintrader88) reported

    $ROKU problem is that u got these dip buyers but should have leaned on that 5 min candle off vwap

  • moneypig001 MoneyPig001 (@moneypig001) reported

    @ProTrader_Vini $ROkU $138 is finally broken ! $$$$

  • NanoTrades8 NanoTrades8 (@NanoTrades8) reported

    $ROKU nice pull today, still need some more help though for my puts

  • paulmarx995 Paul Marx (@paulmarx995) reported

    @Roka_Dura Don't feel that, need to be positive at what you achieved. A lot more stocks lower than higher today. My gainers have given back a lot. Had technical problems with platform and browser. ROKU puts were the play, stock down 8%

  • Attidog John hughes (@Attidog) reported

    $ROKU I have Comcast service. It’s terrible

  • T66476371 T (@T66476371) reported

    @Optionminer @johnscharts Thanks S. I had to take a stop beyond where i wanted on the swing, it gapped down. My success rate on swings in just terrible, so i rarely overnight, i almost entirely day trade, when i do, i seem to get burned. Anyway, gutted i missed ROKU, nice work man!

  • Sandman7591 Sandman (@Sandman7591) reported

    @canuck2usa @Benzinga uhhhhhhh i'd say this is a slighty bigger problem for $ROKU BRIEF-Comcast Makes Xfinity Flex Available To Internet-Only Customers For Free

  • Stevaker Steve Hamaker (@Stevaker) reported

    @Rob_in_KY @KellisRobinett @CatFanRod Seriously. I think people are just stuck in the cable fix and don't understand how easy it is to stream through Roku/AppleTV. #cutthecord

  • tedmills ted mills (@tedmills) reported

    @leslieleeiii There was once, and I can't even remember the name or if was on the web or Roku, where you could stream television from all over the world, live. Not always great quality, but watchable. That soon went away. Now we are all silo'd again.

  • SongByrd IAmOcSong (@SongByrd) reported

    @AmazonHelp Thank you, I mean every so often on my Roku I have to resign in and pair... Never had that problem before.

  • lailahyasmeen Lailah F. (@lailahyasmeen) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    I’ve been up tryna fix my damn firestick for hoursssss. I miss the Roku

  • ImprobableJoe Improbable Joe (@ImprobableJoe) reported

    So, the Roku TV was: Cheap Decent quality Has an app Lets you listen to your TV through your phone while your wife is sleeping in the next room

  • notw209 Jon m (@notw209) reported

    @hulu hi my hulu live keeps crashing on certain channels on my roku stick I tried everything and it still was going to the home screen can yall help

  • rnmomma2three Venessa Peterson (@rnmomma2three) reported

    @NHLTVSupport Help! I can watch on my phone, but not on my Roku, even though I use the same login info for both. Argh!

  • MarriedMerryman john merryman (@MarriedMerryman) reported

    @Roku you guys have the worst customer service of all time.

  • SexyFarms SexyFarms (@SexyFarms) reported

    @comcastcares our Xfinity Stream app for Roku is not working. We are not able to watch TV. Help!!!

  • colelivehard Coleoween🎃🕸⚰️🎃 (@colelivehard) reported from Des Moines, Iowa

    @AskPlayStation It’s telling me I’m traveling and in a new location when I log on. I’m not. I called about a year ago and changed my location when I moved but that’s it. It’ll prb kick me off soon because the locations not right. That’s just the roku issues. Fire stick issues are completely diff

  • lucy_gucy_XD LucyGucyXD (@lucy_gucy_XD) reported

    @dirtygodx I always ruin Katie’s with good mythical morning cause the roku has her login. She hates me for it <3

  • Sildas1733 Derek (@Sildas1733) reported

    @draglikepull I had this same problem on the app on my Roku TV. App frequently didn't care if the game wasn't actually blacked out. I ended up just having to have a laptop hooked up to the TV.

  • atarijaguarguy James Ryder (@atarijaguarguy) reported

    @AskPlayStation when I start my PlayStation vue app on my roku it shows the start up screen then just goes back to the roku menu screen started on 9/16 on all three roku in my house. Any chance I need to uninstall the apps, first time I’ve had a problem with it, thanks

  • RustyIdols Cliff (@RustyIdols) reported

    @BritBoxHelp Exactly so for those without Roku or Apple TV we are watching on computers or in my case on an android box attached to my tv - the problem is that the App is optimized for computer or tablet and is a pain to use on a TV. Even a game system app for Xbox or PS would be a help.

  • QuisitiveInvest Inquisitive Investor (@QuisitiveInvest) reported

    @WallSt_Dropout @ElliotTurn @JerryCap We started with $AAPL TV, then layered in $AMZN Fire TV.. Fire TV's UI/UX is by far the worst, and was so bad, we ended up with a $ROKU TV. Once we had the integrated ROKU TV, it was clear we needed to have Roku on more TVs. Now we're mostly ROKU

  • YvonnePrah Yvonne Prah (@YvonnePrah) reported

    @CourtTV PLEASE fix the repetitive ads on Roku app, it is highly annoying during trials

  • william_geddes1 William Geddes (@william_geddes1) reported

    @MLS_Buzz I have never had issues. Never used thru Roku. They have a “no spoilers” option that hides scores. Never had issues watching games on delay.

  • gracie_e2016 GracieE (@gracie_e2016) reported

    @hulu_support Great! The issue with readability was why I stopped using Roku. Not sure who you do your testing on, but you might want to re-think ...

  • dawnarlene39 Godsintercessor (@dawnarlene39) reported

    I’m trying to figure out how am I going to watch @pastorkimray with my @thewordnetwork not working on Roku.

    My @thewordnetwork is not working again on my Roku.

  • CtownDawgPound Drew (@CtownDawgPound) reported

    @TeamYouTube This is definitely an issue with @YouTubeTV and not just on my Roku. All devices same issue.

  • TeamYouTube TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) reported

    @AndrewGothelf That's definitely odd behavior. Try uninstalling and reinstalling the YouTube TV app on your Roku. Let us know if it fixes the issue.

    @Netflixhelps Lots of connectivity issues to homepage and title unavailable messages to the Netflix app on Roku 4. Immediately switch to PS4 and no issues whatsoever.

  • judesb judes (@judesb) reported

    @LariatAngel they’ve asked me like 30 times what kind of Roku I have and if my Wi-Fi is working and yes and yes and yes everything’s working except for Xfinity stream. COME FIX IT YO.

  • judesb judes (@judesb) reported

    Going on at least my third week of not being able to use my Xfinity stream on my Roku and nobody can help me. Hours of back and forth and plugging and unplugging.
