    @SuptSims @SIDEARMSports Thank you for reaching out. Unfortunately, we ran into some unforeseen issues with the development of the Roku app and are working together with Sidearm to identify a solution. Unfortunately we do not have a timetable at the moment. Our apologies for the inconvenience.

    If Disney+ is even half as buggy as DisneyLife it has problems. Likewise if it doesn't have apps for major consoles/Roku etc (DisneyLife STILL doesn't AFAIK)

  • jhenley276 cochino76 (@jhenley276) reported

    @ADsXe @Sling @Roku @MLB I was having the same problem dude. Switched to PSVue, no problems.

  • giannaarantes5 Gianna (@giannaarantes5) reported

    Streaming games is the WORST. I open Twitter to see Correa walked it off while my TV was still on commercial. It’s 2019 figure it out roku smh

  • Liss1103 Alyssa ✨ (@Liss1103) reported

    dear @Roku please fix your @netflix app because I’ve tried watching something on it multiple times and it skips and just does not want to load also when I try to scroll through the options it never loads properly and always freezes, if you could fix this ASAP that’d be great thxs

  • TRBFleet Safe Space Coloring Books (@TRBFleet) reported

    @ATTHelp the @DIRECTV Sunday ticket streaming on @Roku was non existent all day. Kept getting a message "sorry for the interruption, we're working to fix it." One would think for the price we pay it would work like it's supposed to.

  • preslischu parsley shoe (@preslischu) reported

    cmu needs to get its shit together...the wifi isn’t working..which means i cannot watch the harry styles lights up music video on my roku which will not connect to the broken wifi

  • brianleefoy Brian (@brianleefoy) reported

    @Roku sucks. Just cut the cord and using Roku with @YouTubeTV and @googlefiber. Roku 4K is constantly buffering and has a grainy picture. No issues with YoutubeTV on the @amazon Fire Stick or on any other device.

  • KristopherKarns Kristopher Karns (@KristopherKarns) reported

    @TBSNetwork I downloaded your app on Roku but it won't let me sign in. Every time I click the button nothing happens.

  • LeeiaLH Slam (@LeeiaLH) reported

    @grandsupremnews #roku this might help for answers

  • dave_universetf Dave Anderson (@dave_universetf) reported

    @rothgar @thockin @Roku Yeah. This is one place where streaming services have an advantage, because of the economy of scale of transcoding once and copying into many sockets. Now if only streaming services didn't give me trust issues.

  • nielsen_karl Karl Nielsen (@nielsen_karl) reported

    Totally broken, I pay $100 for the student version (a ton of money in college), doesn't work on my Roku or my computer, ended up finding a... different stream. @DIRECTV @NFL either need to get their shit together or give me some money back. ($6 would be 1/17th)

  • TanyaCuddles TanyaBee (@TanyaCuddles) reported

    @zarayaskea @whoisB0Bwhite I don't have DirecTV I just have Sunday ticket through Roku. They said they couldn't help me at all and that I have to get through to the Sunday Ticket online. But their chatline is down 😡 this happened to us last weekend too. I'm so mad and definitely want a refund.

  • saintsfl Chris Richard (@saintsfl) reported

    @DIRECTV @DIRECTVService #sundayticket Worst streaming experience ever. Been trying on my Roku, laptop and iPad for 2 hours straight. My bandwidth is fine so it is YOU! Refund please!!!

  • DProckstar Deerparkrockstar (@DProckstar) reported from Deer Park, Ohio

    @GetSpectrum there is an issue with your app on @Roku that needs fixed!

  • Author_DLWhite Breasted Boobily (@Author_DLWhite) reported

    Roku has been giving me low power errors for days. I am not buying a new Roku. I just switched out the cable and I hope that fixes it.

  • cteague1321 Basketball school (@cteague1321) reported

    @ATTHelp And still not working. Not on Roku or phone.

  • ashubert Andrew Shubert (@ashubert) reported

    @ATTHelp I spoke with support. I on stand-alone streaming package. Roku device, Apple app. It’s all games EXCEPT philly-Minnesota. Rest after 3-4 minutes of the circle get error sorry about interruption. We are working to fix it ASAP. Support should be aware this is a nationwide issue.

  • ashubert Andrew Shubert (@ashubert) reported

  • sean3z Sean Wragg (@sean3z) reported

    Ugh, @ATTHelp and @DIRECTVService I haven't been able to stream the HAWKS/BROWNS game today despite trying multiple devices: Roku, Android, PlayStation. RedZone and other games work. Insanely frustrating. "Sorry for the interruption. We're addressing the problem ASAP" 👎

  • cteague1321 Basketball school (@cteague1321) reported

    @Kuhl_Ravens @ATTHelp Exactly. My login works (finally) but the only channels I can watch are RZ and FZ. Every single game says, “Sorry about the interruption. We’re addressing the problem ASAP”. Happening on Roku and my phone.

  • cpa2mba Malcolm Mumford (@cpa2mba) reported

    @NicolleDWallace I would prefer to get my fix on my ROKU Ultra watching the NBCNews app - but I can’t. And no one at NBC, NBC News or Deadline White House will answer my emails or tweets. So frustrating 😒

  • _Kalel__ Kalel (@_Kalel__) reported

    @PeteyDanger @ATTHelp @FuzzyDunlop32 Stand Alone Roku app fix it

  • SirrDemon Brettof9 (@SirrDemon) reported

    @DIRECTV hey your Sunday ticket o Roku is not working. Please fix.

  • OShowKCJared Jared (@OShowKCJared) reported

    @ATTHelp Also, in other absolutely obnoxious developments: In the past, if I close my PS4 app, I could open my roku app with no issue. Today, for whatever reason, I was forced to turn the PS4 back on and sign out before I was allowed to sign in to the Roku app. Pretty annoying @ATTHelp

  • vintage_aaron Anthony Aaron (@vintage_aaron) reported

    @ATTHelp @dillstrickland Stand alone app is not working on any platform - XBOX, Apple TV, Android TV, or Roku TV. Tried all of them.

  • jasonwoodmansee Jason Woodmansee (@jasonwoodmansee) reported

    @MasterTes Having the same issue on Roku. Can only get Red Zone - and sadly I was trying to watch Redskins-Dolphins *on purpose*

  • MrHillier13 David (@MrHillier13) reported

    @slinganswers For some reason I just assume that the quality for redzone would be better. I have a Roku ultra hardlined to my network and everything else works great. When they go to multi boxes the quality is grainy

  • jlamke5 JWill (@jlamke5) reported

    @DIRECTV @Roku Please fix this Sunday Ticket issue. I'm not a big fan of paying $80/month to not see any games!

  • rjwintrow Ryan Wintrow (@rjwintrow) reported

    @DIRECTV Sunday ticket isn’t loading anything on roku. Just randomly stopped loading 1 minute into the game and now the app is all glitchy. Please fix or give me a partial refund.

  • dakattack40 Dakota Smith (@dakattack40) reported from Wayne, Michigan

    @ATTHelp Standalone. It’s not working on my roku. Red zone channel works but I can’t stream any of the games

  • 5StarMatchup 5 Star Matchup (@5StarMatchup) reported

    @DIRECTV Same as many people, Sunday ticket streaming is not working. As they say, a lot of coin for a platform that's not working. I've tried web browser and roku.

  • SederVCU Noobmaster69 (@SederVCU) reported

    @PlayStation Your PS Vue app for Roku is ******* terrible. Whoever designed the UI for the guide should get on with their life's work.

  • arwko rKo (@arwko) reported

    @TheCW Can you please fix your Roku app, getting stuck in endless commercial loops happens way too often.

  • nwsltechsupport NWSL tech support (@nwsltechsupport) reported

    @tellr94 @bjjasinski @NWSL It's weird because other sports on the Yahoo Sports app casts. I don't get why it's a rights issue for Yahoo to not be able to cast it from a phone but for the Yahoo Sports Roku app to work.

  • tellr94 Taylor (@tellr94) reported

    @bjjasinski @nwsltechsupport @NWSL I don’t get why this is an issue, get a $25 FireTv stick or a roku and get the Yahoo sports app.

  • Pez_ur_life Scottal (@Pez_ur_life) reported

    @Poezilla That's why I didn't get an Apple TV and got a Roku. I stole an Apple TV so I can connect my iTunes on my laptop though. I heard was awful reviews about the remote.

  • MikeSlamer Mike with the mics (@MikeSlamer) reported from Brooklyn, New York

    @DailyDOOH @Roku Yup. I’ve had reliability issues with RPI, not single issue with MICCA. Not an endorsement, and not slagging RPI’s customization factors, I just prefer knowing it works out of the box for the specific job at hand #avintheam

  • fryguy_pa Jeff (@fryguy_pa) reported

    Hulu seems to have broken their Roku app. Always being asked to log in, every time I launch it. Now even the AppleTV app isn’t working. Grrr....

  • sankerscrowdtw1 sankerscrowdtwist (@sankerscrowdtw1) reported

    @nflnetwork @Brad_B21 @NFLUK Feed not working on Roku app!

  • g_schrage52 Greg Schrage (@g_schrage52) reported

    No TV should be connected to WiFi. Roku, Fire Sticks & Apple TVs are awful, but improved with @The_Pi_Hole. You can run it on a $5 raspberry pi zero w.

  • DragonImagining Imagine Dragons (@DragonImagining) reported

    A teeny tiny dragon with awful bracelets named Roku

  • higgymonstah Jim Higgins (@higgymonstah) reported from Cumberland, Rhode Island

    @Roku Had the worse day ever streaming across all applications. Constant buffering and interruptions. Restarting the internet wifi didn’t help.

  • Leedrop62182 Lee Napper (@Leedrop62182) reported

    @Sheliacardfan I havent had an issue watching all 6 games this year. Had to use Roku for a couple.

  • Alan__Richards Mr. Richards (@Alan__Richards) reported

    @RokuSupport Hi! Alf on the Roku channel doesn't seem to want to work or load, any help would be appreciated.

  • iafischer ilene a fischer (@iafischer) reported

    @slinganswers me again. Your app is once again quitting randomly and crashing my Roku stick. I’ve already lowered the pic quality. 😡

  • JeremyHalladay Jeremy Halladay (@JeremyHalladay) reported

    @Roku I’m having issues where HDR is dark even on the bright setting

  • kbaum11 Kyle Baumgartner (@kbaum11) reported

    Wow. The @FOXSports app on Roku is horrible! Continuously crashes and has been for 6 weeks. Still no fix for it. Lame.

  • Jaxx_AI JAXX_AI (@Jaxx_AI) reported

    Dug out my old iPhone4 era AppleTV so I can watch F1 upstairs. Just noticed something, the picture quality, frame rate & audio are a lot better on Apple TV compared to the crap Roku NowTV streaming sticks. I'd forgot about AppleTV but it really looks like Apple did a decent job!

  • DVRslave DVR Slave (@DVRslave) reported

    @TabloSupport I think this issue has something to do with the last update that happened on my Roku as I started having the issue with my recordings not playing right after the update. Its 9.2.0 build 4106-29. My other roku has a different version & is not having the issue.

  • madsdad110 Will Duren (@madsdad110) reported

    @comcastcares on my stream app, it shows that I’m not subscribed to the channels that I am billed every month for. Plus, I can’t use the individual apps (espn, USA, etc.) as it says the same thing (not part of my package. I’m on roku and Iphone. What is the issue with this.

  • GeriTownsley Geri Townsley (@GeriTownsley) reported

    @surfshark your need to cache NBC sports app which is on Roku box as it is very buggy and it has a buffering issue right now. This make apps on Roku very unstable too.

  • hulu_support Hulu Support (@hulu_support) reported

    @TayKBay Apologies, Taylor! This is something our team is currently working on. We don't have an ETA on a fix, but we appreciate your patience in the meantime. For now, some devices (such as a Roku) may offer a volume leveling feature as a workaround!

  • itsnotgeoff Jeff G. 👻(spooky)👻 (@itsnotgeoff) reported

    @ATTHelp Same issue is not happening on Roku apparently

  • Cdub_99 ©armon Wilson (@Cdub_99) reported

    @Cade4ISU @jonbehrens21 @DIRECTV @espn No issues on the Roku. Cut the cord already

  • manelrodero Manel Rodero (@manelrodero) reported

    @acjuelich @PrimeVideo @Roku @HBO @netflix @PrimeVideoES @HBO_ES @NetflixES The biggest problem for me are: 1) kids watching content not appropriate for them and 2) loosing where I left a TV serie or movie if someone else watched it 😤

  • iastater09 Greg Nelson (@iastater09) reported

    @Cade4ISU @jonbehrens21 @DIRECTV @espn Yeah much better on Roku... Definitely a DirecTV issue.
