  • AMOAMS Ang 🏴‍☠️ (@AMOAMS) reported

    @askparamount I am a current subscriber and having sign in issues on both Roku and Firestick. Not changing my plan just to sign in but I know how to cancel. Will reboot my router but if it doesn't fix the problem, cancelling tonight. 😡🤬

  • lelandwrightjr Ray Wright (@lelandwrightjr) reported

    @PBS @ThisOldHouse Guess I have to figure out how to get the @roku to work right. Because it’s not on the pbs stations I have!

  • ShanMR42 Shannon (@ShanMR42) reported

    Guess who’s @hbomax app on @roku still doesn’t work. Oh that’s right me. Good thing there is only like three more #HOTD episodes after tonight and I can cancel HBO again.

  • DavidJaquezz David Jaquez (@DavidJaquezz) reported

    @Xfinity @SNFonNBC @Xfinity your streaming app is not working o. Roku devices. Way to go! Version 6.8.0 giving the TVAPP-00287 error to lots of people.

  • RobinPetSitting Robin’s Pet Sitting Plus (@RobinPetSitting) reported

    @AppleTVPlus loaded appleTV via Roku & videos DON’T play most of the time. Reload app same problem. Although can stream on iPad/iPhone but even when they’re off streaming on TV doesn’t load, then later may load 1-2 esp then stop loading. Seriously? Is this what u call a service?

  • claudyfranxx Vanya Irigskolki (@claudyfranxx) reported

    Shout out to @Roku for making the worst remote ever! If I had a dollar for how many times that remote has exited the app I’m using to go to another app without me even touching the remote, I’d have enough money to buy a different smart TV!

  • ybemad 🇺🇸🇬🇹🇸🇻⚧️🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍⚧️✊🏾✊🏿 (@ybemad) reported

    @paramountplus app frequently breaks on Roku and Android TV (Sony). It's really irritating. Restarting devices doesn't resolve issue nor does clearing cache. Fix your code!

  • lhasis Lindsey H (@lhasis) reported

    @hulu_support @hulu the Hulu app on my Roku is only showing season 1 of Bachelor in Paradise, and none of the new episodes. I’ve check the app for updates, uninstalled and no luck. Please fix it! This is why I pay for Hulu to skip commercials

  • EsDeib It’sDaveVillanueva (@EsDeib) reported

    This new NBA App is absolute garbage. I’ve tried it on iOS, Fire TV, Xbox, PS5, Apple TV, and Roku and there hasn’t been one where I was able to actually just watch a game or NBA TV without issue. Fix your stuff @NBA @NBALPSupport

  • imapissstone parky 💕 (@imapissstone) reported

    not my roku tv having wifi problems

  • Newcastle691 Newcastle (@Newcastle691) reported

    @darbsliz If you're paying for it through Roku then you might be running into the same issues I had which had limited functionality. What I did was go through Hulu and pay for it through Hulu instead. When I did it seemed to solve all my problems. Just cancel Roku and do it that way

  • noahvvmusic noahvv (@noahvvmusic) reported

    @Wethe1sJack @MarkyNxtDoor yeah airplay or screen mirroring i think those work on the roku

  • darbsliz darby (@darbsliz) reported

    I pay for ESPN through my Roku and it isn’t letting me watch the Longhorn volleyball game that is streaming on ESPN. But I can watch other things? can anybody help

  • coreyjpeart Corey Peart (@coreyjpeart) reported

    I don’t think the @CBS app has ever worked to watch Sunday football on my Roku. It’s absolute garbage and they refuse to fix it.

  • coreyjpeart Corey Peart (@coreyjpeart) reported

    I don’t think the @cbsapp has ever worked to watch Sunday football on my Roku. It’s absolute garbage and they refuse to fix it.

    @CBSTVStudios Your app on @Roku sucks Keeps showing a message that an error occurred. Please give a solution other than Remove>Restart>Reinstall etc etc

  • cbonadonna Chad Bonadonna (@cbonadonna) reported

    @rands Likely not the LG TV. I have 2 Apple TV 4Ks. One hooked up to an LG C1 (w/ Sonos Arc) other to a cheap Roku TV ((w/ Sonos Beam). LG TV has never been connected to internet. I am seeing the same issue on both TVs.

  • MaxxPrescott Max (@MaxxPrescott) reported

    @RokuSupport hello i am having an issue with my roku

  • drunkryno Tipsy Ryno (@drunkryno) reported

    @CBS @CBSSports your apps on Roku are terrible. I have a @DIRECTV account, and I like to stream football on my bedroom tv with Roku. But it never works. Why?

  • trammmngo Tram Ngo (@trammmngo) reported

    hate when the roku doesn’t work. when I needed it the most it vanished

  • drunkryno Tipsy Ryno (@drunkryno) reported

    @cbs @CBSSports your roku apps are terrible! I subscribe to Directv and would like to watch football in my other rooms that use roku instead. But they never work! What are we paying you for?!?

  • caaaaamilaaaaaa -____- (@caaaaamilaaaaaa) reported

    I’m never dating someone over the age of 30 again. Tell me why this guy calls me 50 times a day cause he can’t get his Roku to work

  • TPizzymcgith The Real Pizzymcgith (@TPizzymcgith) reported

    @JoeVirayNBA The app wasn’t working for me last night either and, as per usual, their “help” line told me to uninstall and reinstall (on both my Roku and my iPhone) rather than admit it was an error on their side

  • Dont4get2Chew ames (@Dont4get2Chew) reported

    @CBS your app keeps crashing on both roku and appletv. All my other apps work fine so it’s on your end. Please fix this.

  • Sgtmt23 A penguin? (@Sgtmt23) reported

    @Roku @paramountplus i dont know who fault it is that i still cant watch live tv because it just lags and then crashes. But fix your **** or im moving to @Apple and theyll get my money.
