    @HBOMaxHelp It's on a Roku Ultra. There are no error messages. If I select a show from "Continue watching" the purple box around the show acts like it was selected then does nothing. I tried other shows I've never watched and they work but shows I've started don't.

  • RetiredNavy007 Retired Navy (@RetiredNavy007) reported

    @DragonAggie @iAmTheWarax 4 ROKU TVs never an issue.

  • DaleMacLean1 Never Give Up (@DaleMacLean1) reported

    @CraveHelp help! I'm unable to watch crave on my samsung tv or on roku. I'm a paid subscriber and I've tried everything to get it to work It now says upgrade to watch shows but there nothing to upgrade. I've even tried paying more but it's not working,but works onmy phone.

  • DaveShevlin Dave Shevlin (@DaveShevlin) reported

    Headphone remote listening just stopped working for my roku voice pro remote. Have done all usual fixes. Plug headphones in & it just doesn’t work. Anyone know of a fix?

  • FocoDadof3 Mike (@FocoDadof3) reported

    @returnofaj Damn streaming to my Roku puts behind spoils all the awful things coming I guess.

  • Cavit81 Cavit8🦕🪐 (@Cavit81) reported

    @iAmTheWarax I can't make it work on Roku or Chromecast.

  • DoktorIJones DoktorIJones (@DoktorIJones) reported

    @hbomax On roku, apple tv, and iPhone I am having sync issues on every episode of Babylon 5 that I've checked, Spirit, and Dune. It's fine on the computer but the audio is WAY off on my devices.

  • jmcrowell Oh, the Inanity (@jmcrowell) reported

    @iAmTheWarax I've used it with Roku and Google, wireless and wired, and the only thing I've noticed is a slight delay before the sound starts when beginning a show or coming out of a pause. Looking at their FAQ they just blame the consumer for their app problems.

    @TeamYouTube @4u2nv4 I have checked Roku for system updates and I am running the most recent release. Roku checks every 24 hours for updates. I still cannot load the YouTube TV or the YouTube channel on my Roku TV. When will a fix come from either YouTube or Roku???

  • PunishedKomics PunishedKom🔞 Read Rise of the Guild Master! (@PunishedKomics) reported

    I almost started playing Prime on Dolphin, but for whatever reason the HDMI connection from my PC to my Roku tv wouldn't ******* work and that really annoyed me.

  • riveromanny Manny Rivero (@riveromanny) reported

    @OphirGottlieb @technology Maybe they want to resolve their issue with ROKU?

  • ritchiebloom Rich Bloom (@ritchiebloom) reported

    @garicruze HBO max is unusable on my Roku smart TV, all other apps work fine. It’s very odd, like nobody tested it?

  • fennyishere Fenny Compton (@fennyishere) reported

    @BritBox_UK please fix Roku app

  • oldseaminer HoopsDogg (@oldseaminer) reported

    @pabst_benatar @demeatloaf @RealMYoung23 Also. Old rokus suck. If your roku/ streaming stick doesn't support 4k, it probably doesn't have the hp to work that well with anything (even if your tv isn't 4k). I bought a roku ultra lt last year to make streaming sports watchable, especially on dvr.

  • waZoocat michael brace (@waZoocat) reported

    @YESNetwork unable to sign in on Roku with QR code or by link…takes me to normal sign in and does NOT ask for activation code as displayed on tv

  • kennhoekstra Kenn Hoekstra (@kennhoekstra) reported from Prairie du Sac, Wisconsin

    @4_ONE_4 @bucksfan34 I have been paying the $19.99 a month. It's not perfect. Sometimes the audio and video aren't in sync. I've had some buffering issues. Could be my wireless. A wired connection might be better. If you have a Roku try it. 1 week is $6.99 I think.

  • Dp99Erin Dolores Mulva (@Dp99Erin) reported

    @YouTubeTV Sorry, but for streaming live, I am going to stick with my @Roku. If you guys don't work out a deal, I'll have to go to @hulu. Get er done!

  • Kari_Ari_O BÅBYGIRŁ 💘 (@Kari_Ari_O) reported

    Roku tvs so ghetto man. Why I gotta press a button on the remote 50 million times for it to actually register and work

  • R0KeM Roke (@R0KeM) reported

    @TCL_USA Is this soundbar compatible with the ROKU wireless speakers and wireless subwoofer? Can they work together for surround sound? @Roku

  • SpineGoddess458 Spinegoddess (@SpineGoddess458) reported

    @marcelkiefer_ I’ve got Disney Plus w/ESPN+, but it and AT&T won’t cooperate. Spent more than 3 hrs with support from AT&T, Hulu, Disney, ESPN, even bought a Roku and it still wouldn’t work.

  • TRPSharkie Depth | Sharkie (@TRPSharkie) reported

    So my Roku doesn’t have a remote, I use my phone instead and for that to work it needs to be on the same wifi connection, and I was so tired last night that I put my tv onto my phone’s hotspot which my phone can’t connect to, so I have to reset my tv now

  • Ruck_It_Turner Aislyn Turner (@Ruck_It_Turner) reported

    @Roku so my device won't respond to the commands I'm pressing half the time, and it's saying it's not plugged into a strong power source but I haven't changed anything in over a year. Help?

  • KSBennett4 Mister K (@KSBennett4) reported

    @BritBox_UK Please fix your @Roku app

  • Taylor347287 Richard Taylor (@Taylor347287) reported

    @BritBox_UK is there a problem with your Roku app? It crashes back to the menu every time it loads. Started happening on both my Roku boxes simultaneously. Have tried factory resetting and reinstalling from scratch, same thing happens. I have latest version. V1.0 Build 103.

  • RefJHawk Referee Jared Hawkins (@RefJHawk) reported

    Apparently watching Survivor Series 1995 on my TV through the Roku @peacockTV app is ******* impossible. And spare me "reboot your internet" and "unplug the Roku", it was done and my speedtest came back nearly 70 mbps download. FIX YOUR ****** SERVICE!

  • SocialMonet Monet (@SocialMonet) reported

    @HBOMaxHelp It was a Roku TV and happened immediately after the show aired, after I played it at 9PM (CST). I restarted the app, same problem. I watched again the next day (Monday) with no issue. Please prepare for higher usage on Sunday nights when Insecure airs live on T.V.

  • aRubeInTexas Les Abrahamson (@aRubeInTexas) reported

    @RyanSchlanser @Roku It’s happened each day we go to watch a game, but we keep trying to tune it in and eventually it worked. It stopped mid game and we had to reboot the League Pass app again. It’s just awful.

  • Road_2_Ft_Worth Michael J Smith - Panic Disorder 411 (@Road_2_Ft_Worth) reported

    @IPoppit It might help to go to settings and reboot Roku. I like Amazon Prime the best and watch different channels through the platform. Currently, I'm watching Doc Martin on Acorn TV.

    @Roku Getting a 404 error on the official rules.

    @Google @YouTube please don't take my life away. Vids on @Roku WORK IT OUT.
