  • woahduderino Turd Ferguson-Trebek (@woahduderino) reported

    Your outage on Roku TVs has gone on quite long enough @AWSSupport. It’s Thanksgiving and we’re stuck inside. Let’s go ahead and get this fixed.

  • ChrisRedpath Chris Redpath (@ChrisRedpath) reported

    @SoozUK @NOWTV It's not going to help you much right now, but you can get a nowtv box really cheap so you can stream without using the phone. Roku boxes also support all the other services as well as sky ones. Good luck!

  • _BVM bahvoom (@_BVM) reported

    Is it possible to use airplay to stream a FaceTime call to roku in *landscape*? Seems to work ok in portrait but I can’t get it to “flip”

  • estefsays Stephanie Jimenez (@estefsays) reported

    @bigu It’s terrible, we don’t deserve this kind of treatment after such a bad year! Looks like the real version hosted by NBC is only for subscribers. But someone suggested downloading Locast app on Roku, then streaming your local NBC Channel from there. I’m hoping it works!

  • Rich_Buschel Rich Buschel (@Rich_Buschel) reported

    Does the sound bar work when you are just watching regular TV and not steaming on the Roku? @Roku @RokuSupport

  • browngt5 Taylor Brown (@browngt5) reported from East Boston, Massachusetts

    Seriously, @Roku and @hbomax have got to get their **** together. I have so many issues casting it from my phone to Chromecast.

  • JulieTonroy Julie Shaw Tonroy (@JulieTonroy) reported

    @hulu noticing that service keeps skipping to different episodes near the end of episode when a show has multiple episodes on Roku. Has happened several times this week. Is there a fix for this? Happy Thanksgiving from the pandemic holiday bingewatching community.

  • BucephalousB Bucephalous Breeze (@BucephalousB) reported

    @davidtvrdon @verge My Roku is still not working...?

  • crimsonpostgrad crimson, cpa (@crimsonpostgrad) reported

  • fuboTVsupport fuboTV Support (@fuboTVsupport) reported

    @GenePendak Still waiting on your response. Let us know how we can help! @DankLoriah What channel are you having this issue on? Is this a Roku-integrated TCL? -IV

  • RexDartEskimoPi Cranberry Sauce A La Rex (@RexDartEskimoPi) reported

    @rsaintjohn @mealy_rick I have an older Roku and fear this kind of problem will become more common. Maybe Santa will bring me a new one...

  • alex62881363 alex (@alex62881363) reported

    @Roku 🖕🏻 fix you internect connection you piece of **** ****** company

  • 4cmlittle crystal little (@4cmlittle) reported

    @Roku ... trying to get customer service to help ... installed Roku on tv and it wiped out our ability to view our cable ... TCL tv is blaming Roku, software problem - help! #CustomerService #Roku #tclroku

  • HaydnDunn Haydn Dunn (@HaydnDunn) reported

    @DragonSmolt @vashmcl Long ago TV’s tried to build their own OS but failed as the usability and GUI sucked so manufacturers went for Android TV, Tizen, Roku, WebOS and people started purchasing smart tv’s for its usability and not necessarily quality as to view YT and Netflix with ease.

  • treklady11 Treklady11 (@treklady11) reported

    @Roku How can we fix our settings so that our background theme is not changed by Roku?

  • Racer12WH Wes (@Racer12WH) reported

    @spotifypodcasts @Spotify Are you getting video to work on the Roku app??????

  • donnastphibes Hey you, weird girl (@donnastphibes) reported

    @DerMudeTude Thank you so much! I was wondering what was up. Missed that announcement somehow. I thought it was on my end, I just had to reinstall the ap for Roku because the new UI didn't take and I couldn't use my remote. Apparently an apwide problem.

  • PeerM1991 Peer Møller (@PeerM1991) reported

    @GrowthStockInv1 Sorry, I missed the video. Well, I see the issue. Are you holding Roku?

  • nottnietzsche Niche 😈 Purple People Eater 😈 (@nottnietzsche) reported

    Yo dude lmao cancels my crunchyroll sub?? Its logged me out so many times why would I pay for it if it won't even let me use it??? I hope they fix whatever they did to make it run so bad on roku

  • mealy_rick Rick Mealy (@mealy_rick) reported

    @MST3K No problem. Pluto hasn't been working on my Roku box since the last update anyway.

  • jeffh6730 Jeff (@jeffh6730) reported

    @RokuSupport @disneyplus why do I keep getting a “protected content error” every time I’m watching movie/show on Disney +? This error only occurs on my roku ultra.

  • dkaz Derek K (@dkaz) reported from Bolingbrook, Illinois

    @cbsaahelp @manderinexox I’m having the same issues on Roku. I’ve never seen any platform where sound and video were so apart. Huge issue, CBS. I see it happen most on Champions League replays.

  • stevencwatson14 Steve Watson (@stevencwatson14) reported

    @Roku the quality of my picture is awful and I have frequent buffering since Tues. I noticed that others have also been having problems. Has the widespread problem been resolved and I have in home problems?

  • HustonAsh Ash Huston (@HustonAsh) reported

    @skillcapped I’m seemingly unable to watch just your videos on my Roku tv through apple airplay, is there a fix to this issue and if so how soon can it be expected?

  • MightyDizzy George Rosta (@MightyDizzy) reported

    @CordCuttersNews my award for worst streaming service of the year (and maybe of all-time) goes to @AMCPlus. Been streaming for five years via @Roku, and have never seen a service offer so little for so much. Big fan of AMC, but AMC+ sucks.

  • LadyMris Mris (@LadyMris) reported

    @hbo when are you going to treat your longtime cable subscribers as well as the new people on HBOmax? That you can't get the ap for on roku or sign in with your cable acc on prime. I'd like to see superintelligence today but it's not available on my HBO ondemand! Come on!

  • Bro20Big Kim #BB22 #BBLF (@Bro20Big) reported

    @Roku How come since the upgrade my private listening option is not working??? Being able to listen through headphones is Absolutely necessary in my noisy apartment.

  • PhoneBoySaidSo PhoneBoy Said So (@PhoneBoySaidSo) reported

    Gene pool . All that endured here . Bangkok If you do the feed of a bit slippery out raining. Giving myself and fitness tracker that bad problem to lose the doctor next month, that’s my Roku and run

  • SaltyCracker9 Salty Cracker (@SaltyCracker9) reported

    @Robtvz I am not sure why the link doesn't work for you. We also are on Roku if you have that. -Mrs. Salty

  • DavisTodder Todd Davis (@DavisTodder) reported

    @hulu The 1.99 deal does not show up on Roku. Presumably, this means I would need to sign up online, get a nuclear warheads password then transfer that into the Roku Hulu channel login? Why so complicated?
