  • _Pablo_G23 Pablo (@_Pablo_G23) reported

    @sheaintambs Wait but roku well at least the one i have has a button on it that when you press it. The remote makes a noise so you can easily locate it. Unless that doesnt help some of you.

  • clairessaffitz 𝐦𝐨𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐚 (@clairessaffitz) reported

    @bimontenxgro yeah, i was looking at tvs with roku included and was trying to figure out what would work best considering my wifi is the actual worst. i def would forget the fire stick idea considering you can’t get disney+ on that. i’ll def keep this in mind. thank u

  • theKurtBoni Supreme Kurt (@theKurtBoni) reported

    Roku's failure as an avatar, if i might add, stems from his decision to distance himself from the issue. Even after terminating his friendship, he did not actively suppress the narrative that Sozin tried to inoose on the world. We need to speak up! #OustDuterte

  • rjcc Richard Lawler (@rjcc) reported

    @violetblue it's even awful on Fire TV! the best versions are on platforms where they have requirements for at least the play controls, like Roku and Apple TV, that make it usable. everywhere else it's a nightmare

  • submarinewinter submarinewinter (@submarinewinter) reported

    @history_prog your @Roku app has been #broken for a while. It goes back to the select screen after every commercial and then you have to figure out where you were and watch another #commercial #lame

  • hannah_bobbi wvbobbi (@hannah_bobbi) reported from Lone Oak Park, West Virginia

    So @Suddenlink sent a text and said my service was restored! LIE! I still don’t have On Demand. I NEVER got to talk to anyone because they said it was an outage. I’m about ready to just use my roku and Hulu and to hell with @Suddenlink

  • _odw Olivia💎 (@_odw) reported

    Losing that roku remote is the WORST

  • brothrock76 Brandie Rothrock (@brothrock76) reported

    @Roku my daughters remote will no longer work with her roku tv. There is no button inside the remote. She moved recently and is 11 hours away. Nothing we find online works. Help please

  • UrGirlMaria Laura (Maria) (@UrGirlMaria) reported

    @ScottLikeHorror @Roku Multiple people have had this same issue as well. I was charged $60.41 even though I'd never even come across Sundance Now before. Roku support team told me they couldn't find my account through my email, and told me I might have to contact my bank about it.

  • Abelopez Abelopez (@Abelopez) reported from Fresno, California

    I’ve said it once and I’ll say it again, the @netflix app on @roku is absolute garbage. Constantly freezes and we end up having to reboot the device just so it will work. Our @amazon Firestick and @AppleTV don’t give us any problems.

  • andinolyd lyDior✨ (@andinolyd) reported

    @sheaintambs @Bript_ the roku no problem, just download the remote to ya phone

  • Pointmansdaught Helene Watson Atkins (@Pointmansdaught) reported

    @hulu_support Roku ultra. MAny are having the same issue. It starts buffering then skips ahead like I complained about weeks ago and so are many others.

  • lizladz liz ladz (@lizladz) reported

    .@CBSAllAccess pleaaaase fix your ad server. Watching Picard on Roku and it keeps playing the same ads over and over and over.

  • ohjuliaaaxo juli snail (@ohjuliaaaxo) reported

    twitch isn’t loading on my roku pls help before @SullivanKing comes on 😭😭

  • aeknipe Clearly a bot account (@aeknipe) reported

    @Roku The @YouTube app doesn’t fit the screen. It plays larger than the screen. I’ve deleted the app, restarted the Roku, and then reinstalled the app - still doesn’t work. Please help.

  • Zinnia1111 Zinnia (@Zinnia1111) reported

    @AmazonHelp Firestick update a few hours ago is causing problems. Now everything I watch keeps getting cut off and I have to restart everything. I have a Roku one another television and everything runs smoothly as usual so it's not my network, connection.

  • craigengler Craig Engler (@craigengler) reported

    @acevonjohnson There is a Roku update coming tomorrow that will fix it, but it’s not typical for so many movies to be whacked out like that. Showing that video to our tech team.

  • michelleismyna2 Michelle (@michelleismyna2) reported

    @fernfieldflower I have a big smart tv with built in roku. Love my roku tv. My problem has been getting the wifi connected and now I have to get new equipment bc my netgear stuff was faulty. It's getting worked out now though. Got the sweetest tech at 6:30.

    Roku remotes are the worst

    @DUSKdev Not working on roku

  • Lindsay_Mae18 Lindsay (@Lindsay_Mae18) reported

    @Roku my roku keeps disconnecting from the internet. We’ve tried everything from restarting our modem and resetting network settings. Please help.

  • ashley_tmwu Ashley (@ashley_tmwu) reported

    @Xfinity Having an issue with the streaming app on my Roku. It freezes on “Initializing” and then says try again later. Restarted my roku and also uninstalled and reinstalled the app.

  • Dare_Re_Ya Dr. Atkinson (@Dare_Re_Ya) reported

    I don’t have this issue because I have the ROKU app on my phone & can control everything from my phone!

  • codedsunshine ʙʀʏᴏɴɪ @ #1 rokuzou stan and expert (@codedsunshine) reported

    @karokuwu karma would definitely call him stubborn but roku does let him help him after karma insists on doing so akjfdskf

  • DJCrownBlack Post - Kobe (@DJCrownBlack) reported

    @RokuSupport @Roku Today. Go guys charged me for a ESPN+ subscription that I already pay for. I need your help refunding me my money!

  • Staze_a 🗯 (@Staze_a) reported

    My roku tv isn’t working someone help!

  • WilliamNextLev1 NextLevelTrader (@WilliamNextLev1) reported

    The massive stimulus is bullish. Oil up +24% today is very bullish. Fed rates at zero is bullish. Economy resuming in late April is bullish. $SPY is going to skyrocket soon. Shorts-covering will be brutal. Load up on quality names now. $AAPL $ROKU $COST $UBER $BIIB $MSFT

  • DrFriendly4 The Mysterious Dr. Friendly (@DrFriendly4) reported

    @Daily_Express I watch trash mostly. Prime has plenty. Shudder and Filmrise on Roku are quality as well

  • bryansuddith Bryan (@bryansuddith) reported

    @GetSpectrum With two of us working from home, one student, 3 phones, a couple of t.v.s and ring devices everywhere, performance has been fantastic. The only hiccup is our old Roku devices only pick up the 2g signal, not the faster 5g. Problem for another day.

  • EmmaAtTheMovies Emma @ The Movies (@EmmaAtTheMovies) reported

    @eatentexp They don’t do the one I have anymore but it’s basically the Roku Express. The only issue I’ve had with it was overheating during the summer when it was really hot in the house, but *touch wood* it’s not generally a trouble makers.

  • KFJonesAuthor K.F. Jones - Author (@KFJonesAuthor) reported

    @JazdzewskiTara There's also a Roku box which is basically the stick in a box - if that's accurate, then overheating may be less of an issue.

  • Yazmin619 Yazmin Gonzalez (@Yazmin619) reported

    @Roku @RokuSupport I'm unable to connect to any apps on my roku TVs. And it's not my internet because I checked that. I'm able to connect using my PS4. Asking for help since yesterday still no reply! I'm at work and my kids are home..this is the last thing they need! 😑

  • craigengler Craig Engler (@craigengler) reported

    @Boobafett69 @Shudder It's an issue with Roku. We're working on it.

  • VapidJason Jason but, like, Social Distancing Jason (@VapidJason) reported

    @JazdzewskiTara Fire Stick is terrible, IMO. The one I had would overheat if you watched anything longer than 45 minutes. Plus, I think the Roku has an easier to use interface.

  • DcatBry LeaAngel❤️ (@DcatBry) reported

    @PlutoTV Heads up! Your app started crashing on Roku Express Plus this morning! Now won't even open! Keeps saying having problems playing this; return to on demand ( was trying to watch live Doctor Who channel at time!).

  • Yazmin619 Yazmin Gonzalez (@Yazmin619) reported

    @RokuSupport I'm unable to connect to any apps on my roku TVs. And it's not my internet because I checked that. I'm able to connect using my PS4. bee. Asking for help since yesterday and get no reply! Pls help

  • Mattypriorfan Laura Piper (@Mattypriorfan) reported

    What a bloody revelation this Roku box is! I can watch disney+ without the buffering problem.

  • USVeteran2 #DrainTheSwamp (@USVeteran2) reported

    @LeFondateur4 Agreed. Dont like It all unless they can correct a very serious problem with the platform. Like $ROKU though :)

  • Bd0llas_ Tre60🌍💙 (@Bd0llas_) reported

    My roku remote not working and I just got the mf tv yesterday I aiant feeling this!

  • rossalittle Ross A. Little (@rossalittle) reported

    I have a REAL PROBLEM with seeing two ‘My Pillow’ ads on my Roku MSNBC within fifteen minutes. I will no longer watch MSNBC News on Roku! Done.

  • alexhcranz 𝚊𝚕𝚎𝚡 𝚌𝚛𝚊𝚗𝚣 (@alexhcranz) reported

    @TheChewDefense Probably a hand shake issue. Your TV and Roku aren’t talking correctly to one another correctly and it’s delivering an HDR signal but your TV isn’t interpreting it correctly. Try a dif port and/or dif HDMI cable. If those don’t work there are some other workarounds.

  • saraanjuliiyer Sara Iyer (@saraanjuliiyer) reported

    @SamSaysFashion I used to watch Hulu through my Sony Blu-Ray player. But they stopped supporting it so I canceled Hulu (I only watch stuff on my TV, not my computer). Now I have a Roku. The interface IS terrible through Roku!

  • kcchiefscooper CooporonaVirus (@kcchiefscooper) reported

    @roku Tina Fey and Mayhem is 4 of the 6 commercials every break... Please help

  • mharvey816 meh 🤷‍♀️ (@mharvey816) reported

    @LeavingFilmstrk @criterionchannl I went through Roku customer service and they insisted it wasn't their issue, which I'm inclined to believe because it's not every selection, just most of them.

  • Gypsysoul_3_3 Gypsysoul (@Gypsysoul_3_3) reported

    @Roku whatever update was done on the @YouTube app today, please UNDO. IT'S NOT WORKING AT ALL

  • mharvey816 meh 🤷‍♀️ (@mharvey816) reported

    @LeavingFilmstrk @criterionchannl I keep having issues on the Roku where most but not all videos have no sound. I wish I knew why this particular channel has this problem.

  • WanderingHogan Chris Hogan (@WanderingHogan) reported

    @BritBox_US hello I'd just like to say whoever designed your Roku sign in process should get taken out behind the building and beaten

  • nealsharmon Neal Harmon (@nealsharmon) reported

    @knspy0 @VidAngel Right now the fix is to download the iPhone or Android app from the Apple App Store or Google Play store on your phone. Then connect to Amazon using the VidAngel app on your phone and click "Send to TV" and then choose the "Roku" option. Sorry for the hassle. We're working on it.

  • Gypsysoul_3_3 Gypsysoul (@Gypsysoul_3_3) reported

    @patton6966 I think @YouTube broke their roku app when they updated. Can tell it updated since last night because the bubble saying connected is different and app is not working

  • stevensweden4 Steven Abd El Hamid (@stevensweden4) reported

    @TwitchSupport Hey! The roku app is not working. It opens then closes out before completing loading.

  • TheMilana_ The Milana (@TheMilana_) reported

    @sheaintambs Put the Roku app on ur phone. Problem solved lmao.

  • bairfanx Normal Human Despair (@bairfanx) reported

    Lol, so @roku uses a proprietary cable design built on Mini USB and they have no replacement cables in stock so they direct me to Amazon who has none of those proprietary cables because of course they don't. My "fix" is to buy a new Roku.

  • miwriting Michael Wilkerson (@miwriting) reported

    Relatable. I've had a huge problem lately with changing audio (english not even working when it's available) with the FUNimation Roku app.

  • MikeRideshare Mike Rideshare (@MikeRideshare) reported

    @HBO @hbonow @HBONowHelp your Now app is horrible. I’m in the middle of a series, try “continue watching” & the series isn’t even there! Happens all the time. App crashes a lot too (Roku). So unreliable. Netflix doesn’t crash & keeps track of what & where you were. This is bad.
