    Tech help pls. We have a Ukrainian family moving in with us in a couple of weeks time. I've been told to buy a Roku Express, which will allow them to access Ukrainian TV. Can anyone send me the amazon link of what I need to buy? I know I also have to take a monthly subscription

  • TN5280 ChiInWi (@TN5280) reported

    @barbsway19 @paramountplus I have a Samsung TV and access it directly without a Roku stick or Amazon. However, we have an older Samsung that doesn’t work for some things (like Hulu live). For that one we need to use a roku stick. Guessing it’s the same thing with P+. Must be some new technology?

    Once again I'm having to crank up my laptop so I can cast the @GoStripers game to my @Roku and lose quality in the process. How's that app coming along @milbtv ?

  • WizardOfFries Walter Peck 👑 (@WizardOfFries) reported

    @TeamYouTube Do you actually have a fix for this or is your suggestion of doing the obvious all we're gonna get? Subscriptions tab won't load at all on Roku or PlayStation. It's been two days now.

  • NOWHelpTeam NOW Help Team (@NOWHelpTeam) reported

    @declancarty Hmm, we we're really hoping that would work Declan and by looking at the Roku forums it seems that there can be a number of fixes. Is there any special characters in your routers name or iPhone Hotspot name? Thank you - TD

  • DamonCochrane1 Damon Cochrane (@DamonCochrane1) reported

    @TeamYouTube Have no problem with the mobile app only on the TV app (Roku and Sky Q). Cannot reinstall on Sky Q as it comes with it.

  • jentherat1 jentherat (@jentherat1) reported

    @SIRIUSXM your new app update for roku tv is HORRIBLE- crashes constantly, hate the new format and freezes every time you make a selection please fix it’s unusable as is

  • fifique Fiona S 🇺🇦 (@fifique) reported

    @TennisChannel @PHShriver Is there a problem with your TC+ stream this afternoon? I was watching on ROKU on 2 TVs and on an iPad and all apps crashed. Now, they open but either won’t load a court and/or crash as soon as I choose a feed.

  • fifique Fiona S 🇺🇦 (@fifique) reported

    @TennisChannel Is there a problem with your feed today? All my Apps crashed at the same time and now crash immediately upon load. ROKU, iPad, iPod, all.

  • Atouchofthecat Out There (@Atouchofthecat) reported

    @Roku Why are your customer service reps. So afraid to escalate problems?

  • jackmunyati1 Jackson Munyaradzi Munyati (@jackmunyati1) reported

    @wellahdube Dude ECONET as a whole is one big f***en scam. Ask me, I got a sim card for 2 cows. In our circles we call them ecotsotsis, they sold us kwese decoders which don't work, sold us fake roku devices which don't work, never mind how much yatakanyudzwa ne ecocash.... need I go on?

  • Atouchofthecat Out There (@Atouchofthecat) reported

    @Roku Roku your customer service really sucks, who else out there thinks Roku Customer Service sucks? I got charged twice and they told me I was wrong? When I asked to fix it they cancelled my service?

  • Divakind Divakind (@Divakind) reported

    @ilikefugazi I watched a story on one of the news channels recently (think it was WGN on Roku) about feral cats keeping down rat problems. Apparently rats can smell when cats are around & stay ******** away from said area.

  • DeanKeys5 Dean Keys (@DeanKeys5) reported

    @TCL_USA Is there going to be anymore updates to 50S421 Roku tv. Mine seems to be buffering more since the last Roku update. I think the tv itself needs a firmware update. Also fix the HDR problem, it's still way to dark.
