    @TeamYouTube I’m on 50 mbps Internet, and have no issues streaming any other platform. Only have trouble streaming YouTubeTV on my Samsung Smart TV and my Roku devices. I’m now watching CSPAN’s YouTube channel because my YouTubeTV coverage of the impeachment hearings continues to halt and buf

  • BMcCoy04 Bryan McCoy (@BMcCoy04) reported

    @hulu_support We are getting an error saying the love show we were watching wasn’t available. Now after an ad plays the stream freezes. We get about 120 mb down on our network, zip is 70726 and we are watching in a Roku ultra.

  • realpdxlion Bill (@realpdxlion) reported

    @anpearce @Lj_era8 I really want to watch #TNF on Prime -- so Amazon gets good numbers and more games (vs NFL Network, at least). But Prime over Roku is no contest for Fox over dig antenna for lag and picture quality.

    @WVUSports @WVUhoops Specifically not working on Roku or iphone, neither wifi nor cellular

    @TruNews @TruNews Your ROKU app still does Not have yesterdays Full show. Please Fix so we can watch on our tv's. Thanks

  • chazzbro Chuck Brown (@chazzbro) reported

    @hulu_support In addition to the Roku, I have watched on an Android. The problem is identical on both, and I have never experienced it before on Hulu. So, it's unlikely something in my settings. I went back and restarted the S17 E24 episode and I first noticed it at 01:30 into the program.

  • AltiaStudio Altia (@AltiaStudio) reported

    @oxedwardpel @DistantKingdom -Roku brand products Wi-Fi signal jam -Save corruption, SD corruption, occasional system brick on crash Just to name a few

  • jarredtrax The Patient Trader (@jarredtrax) reported

    the biggest issue w option trading is the time limits. ive had a roku position for awhile now that i held onto even after the d/g. really unlikely it recovers by next week. gonna be a pretty substantial loss. but in the long long run, im sure roku makes new ath's

  • PoliticalNoobYT Political Noob (@PoliticalNoobYT) reported

    @Styx666Official People get offended if you BREATHE the wrong way. The only benefit of YT was free massive traffic. With bans & algorithmic tweaks, that benefit is lost. Bitchute & the other platforms need better UI's & apps to cast to TV, Roku, etc, it will help. Should come in time.

  • BRLiveSupport BR Live Support (@BRLiveSupport) reported

    @MikeH0llister Hey Mike, we are looking into this issue. In the meantime, if you purchase the PPV from any other supported device, it will cary over if you sign into the same account on your Roku.

    @ZEE5India I am not able to view zee5 on Roku. Pls help.

  • tvjames tvjames is coming to town (@tvjames) reported

    @hulu_support I could be a fan. It seems like it's more intuitive than the last, but that it's not working as intended on @Roku TVs.

  • April_Kisse September 27 (@April_Kisse) reported

    At this I’m just ready to get rid of all 3 of my @Roku stick and get a @firestick with all the damn problems I’m having, this is RIDICULOUS

    @quartern_roku can’t add the isratv channel to roku anymore. Please fix it. Thank you.

  • Tigger4046 John Hilla (@Tigger4046) reported

    @overflow_meme Don't even get me started, I'm used to XmL and had to crash course learn Json. luckily I'm stubborn and there is a magical app called Json Manager for Roku that you can edit the json and you just literally tell it what to do and where to find itself! Uploading to Roku today!

  • tvjames tvjames is coming to town (@tvjames) reported

    So... I see @Hulu @hulu_support has gotten rid of the old interface. New one needs help, though - sluggish on @Roku TV and most the time the selected item doesn't show the highlighting or the selection box so you have press enter/ok to see what you've selected. #MysteryShow

  • plooger plooger (@plooger) reported

    @RockyMountViews @LouiseCort1 Not sure why you’d be having issues with a Roku unless it’s an old model.

  • Norman_Lewisjam NL (@Norman_Lewisjam) reported

    @DisneyPlusHelp what do I do for error code 83. My Roku devices and phone are compatible

  • bentleyliz1 Karen Two Two (@bentleyliz1) reported

    Dear @hulu pleaseeee fix auto play on @Roku

    @KS_Cocoa_Beauty Hello, I am not aware of any issues with the Spectrum TV app and Roku devices currently. I will be happy to assist you. Please send me a DM with your account name, phone or account number and full service address. -STS

  • TheGirlRyanne Ryanne Allison (@TheGirlRyanne) reported

    Hey @ItsOnATT, the new updates to the @Roku app are terrible. Please put the guide back where it was and change the fast forward feature back so I can skip through commercials more than 15 seconds at a time.

  • WhoisTylerFrey Tyler Frey (@WhoisTylerFrey) reported

    @NBCSN yo your new Roku app update absolutely blows. Fix it please.

  • KS_Cocoa_Beauty Cocoa_beauty (@KS_Cocoa_Beauty) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum I’m told there is a issue on Roku devices right now. I have 4 FireSticks and the rep that recommended the streaming service did not mention that the app is not on that device. I purchased a Roku just for this service. Nothing but issues with this app since. Ugh!!!

  • StarbandJordan Jordan Jacob (@StarbandJordan) reported

    @disneyplus Is there an issue with your Roku app mixing up the continue watching history. Every time you look at your profile, it's changing the continue watching changes to random items. The issue does not occur on the website.

  • RSLTID_ lance (@RSLTID_) reported

    So my students use a Roku to watch tv at night. Little do they know that I can connect my phone wirelessly to it and have been pausing it very randomly and they’ve come to the conclusion that the Roku is broken 😂😂

  • MattF40 Matt (@MattF40) reported

    The entire @NBCSports streaming platform is garbage. Roku app: awful - pauses every 4 minutes. Chromecast: makes it 20 before crashing.

  • JohnProtevi John Protevi (@JohnProtevi) reported

    @NBA .@NBA #LeaguePass now not working on my Roku AND my Amazon Fire app. It's a daily double of crap service!

  • HANmer_time dshine (@HANmer_time) reported

    @DisneyPlusHelp The disney plus app will not load on my computer at all and on my Roku it has a Error Code 83. And i can't even get on the website to fix it. please help.

  • Very_Harmonious Thea Harmonious (@Very_Harmonious) reported

    Hey @Roku ! We seem to be having connection problems…we’ve reset, rebooted, reconfigured and reconnected. HEEEEEEEEEEERRRELP!!!!

  • freebustinjust1 freebustinjustin (@freebustinjust1) reported

    @vountee You gotta invest in a jail broken firestick/roku stick

  • boricuamanpr Danny Boy (@boricuamanpr) reported

    @NBATV I have problem to see the channel on my @Roku

  • ScottTLittleton Scott T. Littleton (@ScottTLittleton) reported from Elsmere, Kentucky

    @WWENetwork @Roku when I try to view anything it is asking me to subscribe. Ive been a subscriber since launch. There is no login option. Help!

  • jimmylittle Jimmy+ (@jimmylittle) reported

    But "X-Box: Roku Stand" is a terrible name.

  • thompettyswife 🇺🇸 Hollie Hobby 🇺🇸 (@thompettyswife) reported

    @YouTubeTV I can't take it anymore. Black screens, buffering, no way to resume a show you just got kicked out of, poor layout. I even returned my perfectly fine Roku thinking maybe it was incompatible, and had to take a crappy lower model only to have the same problems.

  • ScholarMonk Scholar Monk (@ScholarMonk) reported

    How come @Roku your stock jumping so high in price when your app atleast for Samsung smart TV is so terrible to use, lack basic features search option missing, don’t know other apps anywhere else. Or is it just @ZacksInvest pumped news and jumped stock price with mediocre app

  • ybridges75 Yvonne bridges (@ybridges75) reported

    @AmazonHelp Thank you for getting back to me so soon. I had a look but it did not help. I think it is at your end because I've tried 3 different android devices 1 roku stick and 1 laptop. I've used my wifi my works wifi and 4g still nothing works as I said every other video plays fine

  • LeftWingApathy taxed to death (@LeftWingApathy) reported

    @Vaybor Roku does very little to differentiate themselves from Fire tv, Android, Apple etc. And those guys are juggernauts who actually also provide quality television. Amazon has 35 million users on fire TV, I expect them to continue to grow rapidly and Roku will fade away.

  • smokingontesha fuck you (@smokingontesha) reported

    I need an android charger to fix my roku 😫😫

  • KaraFlops KaraHops (@KaraFlops) reported

    @Bryant_hoss @pandoras_foxo @boring_cactus Not to mention that some models of Roku will straight-up crash and bootloop if there's a Nintendo Switch on the network

  • 504djudd77 djudddd (@504djudd77) reported

    @Roku @OANN thanks for your help 🙄 you should refund me this month due to this malarkey

  • Dance4life321 Amanda Schulz (@Dance4life321) reported

    Seriously, lesson learned! The @amazon Firestick may just be the worst purchase I’ve ever made, and that’s saying A LOT! It always has issues! If anyone is Christmas shopping for me, I need a @Roku for my downstairs TV, never had an issue with Roku on my TV’s upstairs!

  • ImperfectKb Imperfectly Perfect K (@ImperfectKb) reported

    @DebbieAAldrich @pastorcsutton @CNN @MSNBC @LindseyGrahamSC @SenFeinstein Because I have Roku, I watch CBS News Live, which thankfully had no issues. I do put the channel on mute when the commentary comes on. Not a fan of CBS, but I got 2 watch it just 2 see this.

  • RobMJohnston Robert Johnston (@RobMJohnston) reported

    @AppleTV @ATT @ItsOnATT Can y’all please figure out the 4K stutter on #ATTTVNOW .. Its been going on for over a month. 4K setting works on all over devices (Fire Stick 4K, Roku, etc). This issue seems exclusive to ATV4K when 4K mode is enabled. Fix this please!!

  • Vindicator725 Mike C-137 (@Vindicator725) reported

    Been having problems with watching Hulu+Live TV on my Roku. It keeps cutting out and buffering. Sometimes when I go into Hulu it goes back to the home screen right away. Happens on multiple devices. #Hulu #HuluLive #Roku

  • 8ateTech 8ATE (@8ateTech) reported

    @StrangesSanctum @CraveCanada Roku is Rogers. Crave is Bell. You do the math. Its as much a roku problem as a crave problem.

  • BrianDCarte Brian D. Carté (@BrianDCarte) reported

    @oann, experiencing an outage though Roku. 😥

  • WilliamKothman William Kothman (@WilliamKothman) reported

    @CordCuttersNews @TabloTV @amazon I looked at both before getting a Tablo Quad. Tablo supports 6 simultaneous device views vs Recast only 2. Tablo supports Roku, Recast only Amazon devices. Tablo tuner quality seems as good as our TVs. And Tablo support is best of any tech company I’ve used.

  • HaggardGamer Haggard Gamer (@HaggardGamer) reported

    @Nelstar15 @WatchMixer I have asked for a Roku or FireTV app and I always get told to just cast @WatchMixer but it is literally the only app that can't run properly when I cast. Constantly stutters, freezes & runs at low quality. I don't have blazing fast speeds but 300⬇ and 20⬆ should be fine.

  • babybluecollar BulbaScore (@babybluecollar) reported

    @sbregman87 @morgihurd @_gelyamelnikova Hey I know you’re not an engineer but maybe you could pass on to your people that it shows up in the Apple TV and Roku apps, but after the ad it just hangs and gives an HTTP error. I’ll watch on the website, but just thought you should know. Thanks Scott!

  • cranky_hedgehog Angela (@cranky_hedgehog) reported

    4/4 This has been brought up in a Roku community page but this isn’t a Roku issue; it’s a Hulu issue. I specifically use autoplay because I’m doing other things and it’s very inconvenient to stop what I’m doing to monkey around with the tv. @hulu_support

  • TheCrazyLeft18 The Trump Loyalist🇺🇸 (@TheCrazyLeft18) reported

    @TCL_USA TCL if you care head over to the Roku Forum and look for firmware 9.2 because you have alot of unhappy customers including me and we are very pissed. Get with Roku and fix the Black Crush on Local Dimming High. Please head over to Roku Forums. This hasn't worked on any version.

  • tpemberton24 Coquette247 (@tpemberton24) reported

    @RokuSupport I ordered a Roku stick on 12/1....11 days later and I still don't have any shipping information. Help!

  • PyresRPGear Pyre's RPGear (@PyresRPGear) reported

    @AmazonHelp What would help is reissuing a functional twitch app for roku or stop quietly killing off all the unofficial ones that do work.
