  • 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.

  • nat_wrigh natasha o. wright (@nat_wrigh) reported from Jacksonville, Illinois

    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.

  • Rayterrill Ray Terrill (@Rayterrill) reported

    @rhinoblues @steeple3k @IAmDurr I have this exact problem right now - Roku keeps losing my logins, especially ESPN+. I thought I was losing my mind.

  • QuirkyGardener Daniel Amerman (@QuirkyGardener) reported

    @CalvinistCaleb Bah that doesn't help for Roku purposes I assume. How tf does CBC get sole access.

  • latmo2323 Jimmy the Greek (@latmo2323) reported

    @Roku @hulu_support error code plrunk15. Fix it!!!

  • lamorris1226 Leslie (@lamorris1226) reported

    We love our @Roku but have been having a problem with a lot of buffering. @GetSpectrum and @PlayStation have confirmed it is not them. I have tried calling @roku to speak to tech support and they keep directing me to their website(which doesn’t have the answer)

  • sarah1tn sara (@sarah1tn) reported

    @nbc PLEASE fix ur app..I have a Roku and if I hit pause then from then on the show skips. I have to go out of app and back in every time I need to pause. Also for a wk I have been getting error msgs that content isn't loading, but if I hit back button it loads

  • WillChase_ William Chase (@WillChase_) reported

    @fknrightchicago @Sling They had issues with stuff doing that. Not sure if it was sling or the roku

  • imvnnxo iman🦋 (@imvnnxo) reported

    Does anyone else who has @Roku have issues with the remote ALWAYS just not working and the tv screen saying “ HDCP unauthorized” I am sick of this shit

  • aaroncoal Aaron Stigall (@aaroncoal) reported

    @DIRECTVNowHelp No error code messages. We are on a Roku Ultra. 100mbps on a newer router.

  • amiibofreak773 Jayden Montoya (@amiibofreak773) reported

    Guess my Roku is permanently broken thanks to power surges, only had it for a year and now it refuses to connect the display through HDMI 2 despite being plugged in...

  • EsBurroughs EsBurroughs (@EsBurroughs) reported

    @davidlsims @criterionchannl I’d like an algorithm that at least let’s me finish a film or extra without the -3 error on Roku. Fix this 🗑.

  • LogDaddyLogs Logan McRae (@LogDaddyLogs) reported

    @hulu asked me to start a free trial.. now it won't let me login on my phone or roku.... @hulu_support

  • Shanksalot Shanksalot (@Shanksalot) reported

    The @BleacherReport app is the worst on my Roku. Disgraceful that I have to pay $2.99 for this. It’s not 1995.

  • kimicocoa1 kimicocoa (@kimicocoa1) reported

    @JWorldFn208 @SakuTheGamer @FUNimation @Rialisms @VoiceOfVegeta @SeanSchemmel @Chrisayresva I have the opposite problem, it will play on the website and on roku but not on the ios app. :/

  • JimmyHemphill Jim Hemphill (@JimmyHemphill) reported

    @lightsweetcrude @criterionchannl I’m having the problem on Roku. The movies play great until the last couple minutes, when they’re frustratingly cut off my an error message saying the content can’t be played.

  • russfischer Russ Fischer (@russfischer) reported

    @sgorr @criterionchannl I had the same experience (watching on Roku) right as the channel launched. Last few things I’ve watched, including most of the Columbia Noir programming, have been error-free.

  • fuboTVsupport fuboTV Support (@fuboTVsupport) reported

    @MichaelLMoffatt We apologize for any trouble, Michael. To delete the app, click the "*" button while hovering over the fuboTV app on the home menu of your Roku. This should give you the option to "Remove Channel". Please DM us if you still have any issue. -GV

  • BoozeApe 🌴🎣🍻🌴 (@BoozeApe) reported

    @brlive fix your @Roku app. Can't stream @dpshow. Not even an option for it.

  • alliej37 alexis wright (@alliej37) reported

    @VerizonSupport I live in a small condo, so I’m surprised I would have to buy something else to make it work. Netflix and amazon work fine on Roku though, so I honestly think the wireless boxes are the issue. If it was the network, roku would have issues too I would think.
