  • cyberman0 Cyberman0 (@cyberman0) reported

    @FUNimation having odd issues since your outage with app on (multiple) Roku, I have re-installed/restarted. Its showing recently added as 3 months ago and some shows cause it to flat out crash (Black Clover) when trying to play the theme when first selecting show.

    @RokuSupport My Roku has lost its internet connection! Help me please!

  • sierra_k8 Sierra Kate (@sierra_k8) reported

    Getting a little annoyed with Netflix on our Roku. Instead of playing the next episode of Parks and Rec continuously, it plays a commercial for a Netflix original or tries to send us to a different series. We have to go back to the episode list. Cannot find a setting to fix it.

  • TheEricTownsend Eric Townsend (@TheEricTownsend) reported from Leicester, Massachusetts

    @pauldecoster @JimLouth Work pays for internet, I went with the cheap cable package, one box, streaming to all the roku’s $112 per month work paying half of that, not terrible.

  • Topgunns84 Austin Gunn (@Topgunns84) reported

    @RSLonKSL It's terrible on my Roku and it's even worse on my phone.

    @PhobicCarrot @LttleGel @Cole_Heart_9327 @MLBExtraInnings @Roku I've got issues with the siriusxm app that's consistent. Everything else is alright for the most part on my firestick

  • PhobicCarrot PhobicCarrot (@PhobicCarrot) reported

    @gingersoxfan @LttleGel @Cole_Heart_9327 @MLBExtraInnings @Roku Roku has a shit interface, the implementation of DD only works w some avr's and the remotes need to be repaired almost daily. Never had any of these problems w my 3 fire devices.

  • sallynorris Sally Norris (@sallynorris) reported

    @Roku Just purchased Roku and cannot create an account. After filling in the online form and clicking Continue, nothing happens. There is no answer for this in the online help. Please advise.

  • CoveyJason Jason Covey (@CoveyJason) reported

    @slinganswers thank you... weird thing is my windows 10 app (where i watch @localnow 99% of the time) is not showing that channel... on my roku tv at home local now shows back up... maybe it's an update issue w the app...

  • jandmarauders Jamie and the Marauders (@jandmarauders) reported

    @criterionchannl @JasonHirschhorn Hasn’t been working well on Roku Stick. Was told the issue was known and was being worked on. Haven’t dared watch a real movie for fear of being shut down during the final scenes, which is th effect of the error.

  • uptickman The One and Only (@uptickman) reported

    @hulu_support I keep getting network error on my Roku TV, and the mobile app is not working, wtf

  • BuffaloDan01 Danny D (@BuffaloDan01) reported

    @Roku I love your product. I'm at my parent's house visiting. And theirs is sooo slow. It's awful. I did an update and restart. Please don't be like Apple and make the old players obsolete. / Or you should develop a trade-in program.

  • sbtge Sabotage (@sbtge) reported

    @bobbybobson4888 apple TV I get, cause they don't have any quality control roku I get because they will put up anyone offering them money but jesus ******* christ no one else should be buying what they're selling

  • TeamYouTube TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) reported

    @TerryLovell There was an issue with the subs feed earlier which has now been fixed. We suggest you reset the app on your Roku device as this may help clear things up. Keep us posted.

    one of the worst pains i have ever felt is not being able to find my roku remote

  • StCBeerWine StC Homebrew (@StCBeerWine) reported

    I have had some kind issues with all apps on @Roku but wow, @HBONowHelp is so brutal. After 90 minutes I gave up on trouble shooting... delete, reload, reboot wifi, reboot Roku, always freezes. Have to watch on laptop and once Games is done so is @HBO through @hulu

  • sarahelainee sarah (@sarahelainee) reported

    a 65” roku tv is glitching rn, original cost $576, glitch cost $250, what a deal lol

  • Star_Inari Kris aka Star Inari aka #1 Youtuber ever (@Star_Inari) reported

    @FunimationHelp I keep getting the “This content cannot be played in your territory” message on my Roku, even though yesterday and for months now it’s never had a problem. How do I fix this and why would this even be happening

  • bear1y Barrett🦇 (@bear1y) reported

    @criterionchannl Love the service. I love the UI on desktop, however UI for Roku has some problems.. For example if I could just see a grid view of “all films” that would be fantastic. I know it’s an ongoing process, just my 2 cents. Thanks for everything

  • e_chernick Eric Chernick (@e_chernick) reported

    @FOXSportsGOHelp trying to watch the clippers game on FSGO on my roku. When I click on the streaming feed the app closes. Need to be able to listen to @Ohmeomy. uninstalling the app didn't fix the issue

  • hotcoffeeandpie HotCoffee&PaperBallots (@hotcoffeeandpie) reported

    There’s nothing like the #MuellerReport to make me painfully aware of how awful @Hulu live tv streaming via @Roku is. Buffering... buffering...

  • 1ZTech ZTech  (@1ZTech) reported

    @HitachiGlobal Hi, I'm having an issue with one of your Roku TV's where half of the screen is a certain color profile and the other half is a different color profile. It isn't a consistent issue but it's very annoying when it does happen.

  • kimerrikin [kimerrikin] (@kimerrikin) reported

    @Roku Hello my Roku is not working. And your website makes it impossible to contact customer support. It’s been going on for 2 days. HALP.

  • Melly4Beto Melissa Davis (@Melly4Beto) reported

    @hulu I'm trying to add MSNBC to my Hulu basic package. I went to my account page, and having trouble finding if it's in a package, or just an add on. Please Help!!! I use a PS4 and Roku for streaming, and I am billed via debit through Hulu.

  • _LarryWilliams_ Larry Williams (@_LarryWilliams_) reported

    YES.... @Roku is GARBAGE!!! Same problem here for almost a year too.

  • Tag_Steele Tag Steele (@Tag_Steele) reported

    @Roku TV's are a piece of shit!!! It's been a year and they STILL have no clue how to fix the "Smart Guide". They call it "Smart" yet it always says "No data Available". Their guide is about as smart as their programming and customer service "non-service" staff. DO NOT BUY!!!

  • Pokerino Potsy Barns (@Pokerino) reported

    @ziobacio @criterionchannl I just watched most of "Experiment in Terror" on the Roku Criterion Channel but had to watch the last five minutes on Prime. They keep saying they're working on the problem. One and a half weeks later.

  • CubsGirl79 Thank you Supernatural!!! 💔 (@CubsGirl79) reported

    @AmazonHelp Error code 9068 using a Roku 4K tv. The other seasons look to be all there, but I only checked a few so far. We have purchased all but one of them so I hope it’s either put back up in full or a refund can be granted. We spend a lot of money on prime video, at least in my opinion.

    @Netflixhelps Hmmm - my device isn't listed on those options [neither Smart TV or Roku]. My only other option for other devices is: "We are currently researching this error. To help us investigate, please contact customer service."

  • sunshinesolidad moving out girl🍩 (@sunshinesolidad) reported

    @nevernotdoing @netflix I am. I was having problems with google play too on roku.

  • welliebh Beth Hughes (@welliebh) reported

    @BravoTV Please fix the upload of latest episode of RHONY on both Bravo app and ROKU. Both are playing last week's episode even though it says it's this week's episode. Please!

  • Metrofan11 Art Raimondo (@Metrofan11) reported

    ** DO NOT BUY R O K U CRAP!!! Your life will be figuring out why your REMOTE Doesn't Respond. THEN: You'll get ERROR Messages concerning the SAME HDMI Conectors you've used for MONTHS are NOW incompatible with their LACK OF SERVICE!!! @LPNational @Roku @Yelp @CNN @FoxBusiness

  • Valthehbic valerie (@Valthehbic) reported

    @megoing Luckily the problem has been temporarily resolved. Husband can stream the HBO app on his phone, which can connect to our tv, & our Roku can connect to it through his phone, so I'll still be able to watch GOT. What a relief, I was all prepared to drive 2 1/2 hours to his sister's.

  • MJeezy2017 Darius Targaryen (@MJeezy2017) reported

    @MLBFanSupport subscription login is not working on my tablet with the same login info I use on my phone and Roku.

  • fadeaccompli Fade (@fadeaccompli) reported

    @wednesday ...huh! Though, ironically, I am now using a Roku box. (Which Amazon Prime keeps having issues with anyway; I begin to think Amazon is just bad at video.)

  • pete324 pete (@pete324) reported

    @FloBowling But it's not on my roku...nor were the qualifying rounds at the time they were played... Please fix

  • Nostalgiavamp steven clark (@Nostalgiavamp) reported

    @Roku hey guys when I use the photo + part my app and play a video sometimes it gets stuck then plays again how can I fix that

  • SashaSnyder Sasha Snyder (@SashaSnyder) reported

    @hulu_support Thanks for the quick response! Unfortunately, once the show receives that error code it remains and the show is unwatchable on the #Roku. Has happened to several shows and sporting events @F1 and #DeadliestCatch to name a few.

  • connected_works ConnectedWorks (@connected_works) reported

    @SteveMay_UK There’s a school of thought (me) that Fire devices are all awful and what you really want is a Roku.

  • leahbiaa Leah Kane (@leahbiaa) reported

    @Roku @BravoTV Now maybe if you could upload the right episodes it would be amazing! Ep 6 is playing for EP 7, please fix this asap rocky.

  • StansBakery Stan's Bakery (@StansBakery) reported

    @Roku is there a current issue with @Flickr in your system. Our keeps opening and shutting down already tried restarting

  • Josh_BKNY Josh 📫 (@Josh_BKNY) reported

    @fuboTVsupport @jdillafromFL the sign in problem is fixed.. but the streaming error persists. (at least for me) also.. you cannot uninstall the app because its a subscription service. Roku keeps it on the Roku device until you unsubscribe. Not sure about @jdillafromFL, but I have the Roku Ultra.

  • jdillafromFL JDillafromFL (@jdillafromFL) reported

    I have a Samsung TV, use a Roku Device to stream fuboTV. Lately I've been experiencing menu pausing, shows/movies close due to a 'streaming problem' and every time I turn my tv on and off, turn on my Roku, I have to sign into my account for the first time. WTF! @fuboTVsupport

  • TChris67 🇺🇸 Terry C ➡️ (@TChris67) reported

    @tyler_casper I use a refurb Roku. It has issues...

  • morardains starlight ✨💮🐬 (@morardains) reported

    whenever i’m watching youtube live-streams my roku literally shifts the quality to 180p even with the option of “autoselects best quality” i literally just watch boxes move

  • coulterlaura Laura Coulter (@coulterlaura) reported

    @hulu_support 31792. Got the error on both my Roku app & Chrome browser on my laptop. Was finally able to watch on the app on my iPad, thankfully.
