  • tjwacker Travis Wacker (@tjwacker) reported from Chicago, Illinois

    @TeamYouTube I tested the connection through the Roku settings and it’s all good (plus I’m watching YTTV through my Apple TV and it works fine). I did also delete & reinstall the channel and I’m still having problems.

  • hannaaahbanana_ hannah 🍌✨ (@hannaaahbanana_) reported

    @hulu_support what is going on with the update on the roku, it’s always down or cancelling. i pay $38 a month for this, i’m tempted to just cancel this i’m always having this problem

  • therealADWarren These are the times...to drink beach coffee (@therealADWarren) reported

    ...oh, and FYI @ElevationChurch, your @Roku app will not even open up... hasn't in two weeks.... I'm using a Roku4. Same as all the past times. Missed Palm Sunday..ever since you changed your app last year, it has crashed more than its worked. The prior version had no issues.

  • silverslideman Dave Todd 🕷 (@silverslideman) reported

    @takt1_classical @musicAeternaTC Want to listen to this via my Roku, but can't log in there ("Unknown error. Please try again later"). My 48 hrs is running out.

  • mrflibble24 mrflibble (@mrflibble24) reported

    @PBSKIDS @hugbugification @Roku Reporting same problem here. This has been happening since last night. I just reported via the ticket link you supplied.

  • therealADWarren These are the times...to drink beach coffee (@therealADWarren) reported

    Dear @Sling, You app on @Roku crashes daily. I've had to restart x3 today alone. It's definitely specific to your app. No other, except @ElevationChurch app, have problems on #ROKU. Been going on about two months. Paying $35/mo. Are you aware or have in repair. AW

  • ADTlME ADTIME #MTO (@ADTlME) reported

    @MalibuInvest COST is broken! Whole market melt up mode! They must be selling ahead of news. GLTU, glad I exited at open and took ROKU!

  • JackKetch1 Jack Ketch (@JackKetch1) reported

    @action_jay I just got a wired Roku box because it seemed silly to use wifi when I could just use a cable. Even on a 5 GHz router we've had some issues.

  • CaseyCip Casey Cipriani (@CaseyCip) reported

    Rainy day by us. So an awesome day for @PBSKIDS to be just not working on our @Roku. And believe me @RokuSupport I've already done the restarts, reboots, and deleting/re-adding. This Sharp TV sucks.

  • PHolmes122 Phil Holmes (@PHolmes122) reported

    @Twitch if you're not going to fix your app for Roku, please stop preventing 3rd party apps from doing it.

  • Emmydems Emmy. (@Emmydems) reported

    @markedly @DanteDeathTouch I have a tcl roku tv and it never crashes. The add-in roku devices do sometimes crash. I’ve had roku and Apple TV and roku is superior and cheaper. Plus you can get Apple TV app on roku.

  • DcatBry LeaAngel❤️ (@DcatBry) reported

    @RokuSupport MGM: Sci-Fi is not working/opening on Roku Channel ( Android app version from Google Store). MGM:Sci-fi keeps saying unable to play; try again later. Please fix the problem. I love this channel. 😞

  • lizjurman Elizabeth Jurman (@lizjurman) reported

    Hi @SBS @SBSNews Thanks for the groovy new on demand app - but it has an infuriating fatal flaw. It is SO HARD to find the live news stream when I try to watch it via a telstra tv roku device. Hope you can fix this. Thanks.

  • Aleut1 Bradley Michael (@Aleut1) reported

    @RokuSupport @cbsaahelp I have a Roku streaming stick + 2017 model. Every couple of episodes on CBS All Access, an ad break will keep restarting. For a 5 commercial break, it'll show ad 1, 2, 1, 2, 3, 1, 2, 3, 4, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Please fix this. It's very annoying.

  • jaalynn__ Jalynn 💕 (@jaalynn__) reported

    AT&T need to get they shit fix. How my phone connected to my WiFi but not my roku, Xbox, ps4, or my computer.. make it make sense

  • _ElaineMichelle E.Michelle (@_ElaineMichelle) reported

    My only request is that @Roku make bigger remotes. Lawd I lose the damn thing as soon as i find it. Help me

  • ToodlumJinks Mike Brummer (@ToodlumJinks) reported

    @Roku I'm trying to get help with some code issues on Facebook but I'm not getting a response. Help!!

  • Samanthasteez Samantha (@Samanthasteez) reported

    I accidentally washed & dried (barely dried bc i could hear the banging and obv had to investigate ...) our @Roku remote w all of our bedding today & surprisingly.....it no longer works....quite possibly the worst timing for such a mistake 😫😨#Isolation #mombrain #pregnancybrain

  • HenryMilliard HenryFromTheCounty (@HenryMilliard) reported

    @YouTubeTV the ok button on my roku app stopped working. Removed app, restarted, added app back. Same issue. Tried on my phone and same issue. Cannot use the ok button via phone or remote. Tried looking online no solutions.

  • NostalgiaNut Nostalgia Nut (@NostalgiaNut) reported

    @themindrobber My only problem on Roku has been everything starts in silence. I have to fast forward and rewind to get the sound to play

  • grhansen Glenn Hansen (@grhansen) reported

    @slinganswers I’ve had to remove then reinstall the app from my Roku tv a few times, but now that’s not even working. Frozen, not the movie. Help!

  • 80mins Curtis, but socially distant. (@80mins) reported

    A Roku/AppleTV app would help with that. Obviously, there's appeal to putting it on a larger screen. /5

  • fromwinetovino Lo Lately (@fromwinetovino) reported

    @mamasahotmess04 We got rid of our cable and went totally to streaming services/Roku. Family shared Netflix, Hulu and share a live tv login with my BIL. Internet is a bit more expensive, but still cheaper overall.

  • kismetnyc1 CarolH (@kismetnyc1) reported

    @tiff_fb I had a similar issue. If you got the free month via CBS Access and not Amazon, Amazon for whatever stupid reason will not honor it. You have to use it through the CBSAccess app either on your smart tv or fire stick, roku, etc. (1/2)

  • abcward Bruce Ward (@abcward) reported

    @SwanniOnTV I have both HBO apps installed on my roku. There is no option for watching without subscription. Help!

  • sarahsname Sarah (@sarahsname) reported

    Really let down by @amazon & @Twitch s choice to remove any way of watching through @Roku. I get that it's comp to the firestick but we're in the mid of a pandemic. People are home scared & stressed out. You'd think you'd want to help by providing access to twitch not removing it

  • zariaglucas Zaria Lucas (@zariaglucas) reported

    @_thewhitegirl22 Fire stick if it’s jail broken, roku if not.

  • justinrayharvey justin harvey (@justinrayharvey) reported

    @Roku I hope the update comes out quick because I've noticed a bag with the @AppleTV channel on Roku and I'm hoping that the OS update will fix it

  • coachp1416 Rob Powers (@coachp1416) reported

    @JasonMoran3 @Ask_Spectrum Lol, can relate. We have the spectrum app through roku. Earlier this year when ‘Cuse was playing Duke, I called and attempted to have the ESPN package added. First person gets my account, I explain the situation, ask her if it would be available she says should be no problem

  • wtfRobbi Robbi (@wtfRobbi) reported

    @SYFY been enjoying the app and #BattlestarGalactica . But, it seems there’s a problem with the Roku version. It shrinks the video, as if it were at the end, and doesn’t return to full size. The only commonality are Home Depot commercials.

  • WERQhrse Werq Horse (@WERQhrse) reported

    @markedly The couple issues I've experienced probably had more to do with the app I was using (I think it was Tidal) than the Roku software. I'd choose Roku again over any of the competition.

  • DanteDeathTouch Count Dante🌹 (@DanteDeathTouch) reported

    @markedly Usually it's just some app, like Youtube crashes more often than others... It's more the Youtube app's fault but that is what I use more than anything. I've never had it crash on Netflix. have an Apple TV at work and it has issues too so I don't think Roku is any less reliable

  • IHearSimon Simon ⛺🇨🇦 (@IHearSimon) reported

    @markedly It depends on the app you're running. E.g, if you are watching Bloomberg, it is because you've installed the Bloomberg app. If the developers haven't created it properly, despite the careful quality control of the Roku store, then it might crash. (I project managed this stuff)

  • newenglandmatt matt 🏋🏾‍♂️🇺🇸 (@newenglandmatt) reported

    @MissMelonBandit Certainly not Roku. Roku is the absolute worst Avatar. He let a friendship get in the way of killing one guy and then that guy left him for dead, launched a century long war, and even subjected a culture of people to genocide of which there was one single survivor. So not Roku.

  • tsafra Todd Safra (@tsafra) reported

    @CBSAllAccess I purchased a Roku Streaming player on March 19th but when I tried to activate the 3 month trial 5 different times prior to april 5th that option never appeared. Roku did not respond to my activation issue, is there something you can to activate that 3 month trial

  • CheckItBomb Victor (@CheckItBomb) reported

    @Roku Add/Fix the twitch app tell them amazon to **** off cuz no one is buying their greasy ass fire stick

  • PaperJoshi Josie's Woolly World (@PaperJoshi) reported

    The Internet on my PC has been kinda shitty the last couple of days. Streaming files stored there to the Roku has been touchy, too, so I assume it's a router issue. It's only affecting my PC, which is also the only device using wired Internet, so I think that might be the issue.

  • _ykSlim Slim Andretti🗣🐉 (@_ykSlim) reported

    It’s like regular tv fr, I use my grandma spectrum login on the roku😂

  • jaswhite__ mula (@jaswhite__) reported

    The Roku remote is THEE worst remote for you to lose.

  • ubetcha58 Denise Armstrong 🇺🇸 💙 (@ubetcha58) reported

    @slinganswers I'm using a roku device, brand new, and every time I start sling I have to uninstall and reinstall the app in order to watch. I keep getting the 8-270 error. The roku device is the latest device.

  • DKuzNY △ 𝔻.𝕂. 𝕌𝕫𝕠𝕦𝕜𝕨𝕦 ▽ (@DKuzNY) reported

    @RokuSupport @roku my soundbar stopped working last night after WiFi failed. WiFi is back up and running but soundbar won’t connect and I don’t know how to reconnect it. It’s just flashing an orange light no matter what I do. Please help.

  • smdnyc Shannon Donnelly (@smdnyc) reported

    I recommend people sign up for streaming services directly rather than via their @Roku. Every month for the last 6 months I log into my Roku and cancel CBS All Access. It says it worked. Then I get charged again the next month. Since I signed up on my Roku device CBS can't help.

  • PhilShenkle Phil Shenkle (@PhilShenkle) reported

    @HISTORY I have been trying to get in touch with you about the terrible ROKU app. You are losing viewers by the day because the app is so bad. I love your content but the app is unwatchable! Please fix...it's been bad for too long, it's time to get the app working right!

  • PaddingtonBaar Paddington (@PaddingtonBaar) reported

    So @Twitch has a copyright strike on TTVStream the 3rd party viewer on @Roku Nice timing @amazon while half the world is stuck at home your worried about making even more money. Why not fix your own @Roku app if your that worried about more millions #CashGrab

  • YouMayRise Hattori Hanzō (@YouMayRise) reported

    The AppleTV interface on Roku is beautiful. If only the app didn’t present several streaming and buffering issues 🥴

  • ErikMGriffin Erik Griffin (@ErikMGriffin) reported

    @Keiththecop Compound media app is up on roku. But when I sign in the app closes and I return to roku home screen.

  • Diamond_Dust6 Diamond_Dust (@Diamond_Dust6) reported

    @Krensada @disneyplus I was also only using internet on a single device at the time, it was a roku tv. Maybe it uses a lot of bandwidth as others have said. I don’t know. Either way, it’s good to report this to Disney so they can improve their service of it has an issue.

  • nolo_ellis NOLO (@nolo_ellis) reported

    AMC says it’s losing money. Well if they can only fix their customer support and the app for Roku. I can’t even use it because the site where I enter the code to get roku connected doesn’t pop up.

  • _glofaerie ⛅️ ⁰⁰ (@_glofaerie) reported

    i got the cable login i’m unstoppable with the roku apps now

  • EfromChicago Eric "Bunker Fatigue Is Real" from Chicago (@EfromChicago) reported

    @AndrewLeeTCNT @AjKFAN It's working on Roku, it's not working on Verizon or AT&T.

  • jonjohns65 Jon Johns 🐾 (@jonjohns65) reported

    @AMC_TV your app is making me sad. Tv: Roku App: paid for Sign-in: successful thru cable co. Verification AMC app: still not working. No AMC: no BCS Now I'll have to cancel my payments to you.

  • nowtvhelp NOW TV Help (@nowtvhelp) reported

    @scotland_camera Hi, sadly we are out of stock right now for remotes up until July at the earliest 💔 However you can use your phone as a remote by downloading the official Roku app. Or use that spare change to buy one on ebay 🙂 Good luck and sorry we couldn't help you any further

  • clogicca Steven (@clogicca) reported

    @jontlewis @Roku @VuduFans yeah I have a problem with gouging and favors like that lol .. no thanks .. enjoy your ripoff, and help hollywood get richer 🙄🤣🤢🙉

  • Funkizm D-Funk (@Funkizm) reported

    @AlexWhittler A smart tv @Roku @AppleTV @amazonfiretv solves that problem

  • pooptrashbucket PTB (@pooptrashbucket) reported

    @_frayed_nerves @Twitch @Roku I know, my official twitch app just stopped working and now I found out about TTV and that's not working anymore either..

  • IHeardStarSay Starlynne Gornail (@IHeardStarSay) reported

    @HisenseGlobal YOUR PRODUCTS ARE TERRIBLE. My 40" Roku TV broke within 16 months. I'm switching to SAMSUNG

  • sshanaaaa Shay bands 👑♉️ (@sshanaaaa) reported

    the worst thing is not being able to find the roku remote...🙃

  • DerTeeHarri Dr. Chip Beers 🍺 (Blue Checkmark) (@DerTeeHarri) reported from Columbia, Illinois

    @RytheRealtorSTL Hopefully comes back soon. I just know when I first got Hulu, the capabilities between my Roku and Firestick are different. I haven’t noticed any issues currently, but I’m using a Firestick

  • DerTeeHarri Dr. Chip Beers 🍺 (Blue Checkmark) (@DerTeeHarri) reported from Columbia, Illinois

    @RytheRealtorSTL Roku doesn’t always have the full capabilities with live as a Firestick does. You have to look into what model Roku you have vs what is compatible with Hulu live. There’s a list on Hulu’s site. Look into that, may solve your problem

  • nikki64485 Nikki (@nikki64485) reported

    @GetSpectrum You're Roku app for TV Choice freezes when using the DVR. Fix it!!!
