  • kentuckyhug @kentuckyhug (@kentuckyhug) reported

    Thankfully, I’ve caught the majority of the big moves in $ROKU since 65.00. Just wish I had bought more and caught entire ride. It’s just getting started. Years worth of quality growth ahead.

  • natefinley Nathan Finley (@natefinley) reported

    @AskPlayStation I’m not seeing my Favorite channels in the Vue Guide on my Roku. I have Restarted the Roku and logged in and out. Any advice on this issue. Started happening yesterday.

  • JamesDeanOnline James Dean (@JamesDeanOnline) reported

    @AskPlayStation The new Roku App is awful - part 2: Also, favorite channels used to show up under the OTA channels in the guide - now they don't, so if you want to go from ABC to Food Network, you have to scroll through 22 dead ESPN college football channels.

  • TheLASooner LASooner (@TheLASooner) reported

    @SoonerSportsTV The Roku app is not working for me, I see the OU splash screen and it goes back to the roku home screen. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling, same issue.

  • JamesDeanOnline James Dean (@JamesDeanOnline) reported

    @AskPlayStation The new Roku App is awful. You disabled the functionality of the 'OK' button to activate the Menu. Now you have to hit the back button - but if you do that twice then it tries to exit the app.

  • Brianna_casares Bri Casares (@Brianna_casares) reported from San Antonio, Texas

    Someone come fix my Roku :(

  • superclearpepsi superclearpepsi (@superclearpepsi) reported

    @AskPlayStation vue update on roku express is broken and terrible. Can't browse past or future hours or days in the guide, only gives access to present and next hour. Also, if I go to guide it stops playing live TV, have to select from guide again to get back to show. Please fix.

  • granthouse15 Grant Householder (@granthouse15) reported

    @AskPlayStation starting yesterday, I’ve been having audio issues with my PS Vue. The audio with freeze/cut out and then when it comes back, it isn’t in sync with the video feed. Using it through a Roku tv. Please help. Thx.

  • Sparky6369 Charlie (@Sparky6369) reported from South Haven, Indiana

    @AskPlayStation Just with PSVUE on the Roku. When viewing any channel or show, the audio and video start off in sync and after about 30 seconds, the video stops and falls behind about 3-5 seconds. I deleted the app and reinstalled and it still has the same issue. iPad app works fine.

  • TCL_USA TCL USA (@TCL_USA) reported

    @itsthejody @Roku Oh no! Feel free to send us a DM and we'd be happy to help diagnose what's wrong.

  • itsthejody 🆃🅷🅴 🅹🅾🅳🆈 (@itsthejody) reported

    My .@TCL_USA .@Roku TV has serious issues. It's only 8 months old. After about 3 days, it won't load any UI graphics and won't load any app graphics such as show thumbnails in the Hulu app. I have to manually restart it via Restart in the Power menu. Beyond annoying! 😡😡😡😡😡😡

  • DocLuke_ Lucas Stoflet (@DocLuke_) reported

    @TLatshaw @TwitchSupport @Roku Agreed. Now I have to on my PS4 which isn't really an issue, it's just another device I have to have on to stream vs the smart TV I bought...

  • ASchallenberger Adam Schallenberger (@ASchallenberger) reported

    @TwitchSupport It looks like the Roku grandfathered app is not working. Keeps crashing.

  • JacksonStewal Jackson (@JacksonStewal) reported

    @TEEELAZER Just specific stocks. I am short $UBER, $NFLX, $TSLA, $NIO, $LYFT. Fed can't help them. Market will turn eventually to short things like $CMG, $ROKU, $SHOP.

  • BettieDavis100 Bettie Davis (@BettieDavis100) reported

    I finally just started watching Black Mirror about 35 min ago or so & in the middle of watching, my Roku go wonky & I am at a loss as how to fix it. Gotta put Netflix on my laptop I guess. #BlackMirror #Roku

  • 50something10 50_something (@50something10) reported

    @VikiStatus is viki down, got logged out of roku and cannot sign on again saying pw error

  • RJ_TMC RJ Justavick (@RJ_TMC) reported

    @AskPlayStation Actually reading that more than just me are having this issue with the new update, seems specific to roku devices, from what I can gather from the PSVue subreddit.

  • cmoman15 Mikael Ohman (@cmoman15) reported

    @alex_pacin @TheSwickster I use the Unvision Roku app to get around the SD issue. Works like a charm

  • noreennavarro Noreen (@noreennavarro) reported

    My dad thought the Netflix was broken so all I did was hit the reset button on the Roku and it started working again so now my parents think I should be a computer engineer lmfaooo

  • jontracyk Jon Klappenbach (@jontracyk) reported

    @DIRECTV is the worst solution for for any type of cable or satellite tv. Whatever you do, go elsewhere! Even if you think your provider sucks they’re still better than @DIRECTV #scammers #losingcustomers Time to switch to @Roku

  • EMIComps EMI Comps (@EMIComps) reported

    @psvuenews @PSNetworkStatus 8/21/2019 PSVue update on Sharp Roku TV, is now causing video/audio sync issue across all channels. Roku Software Version 9.1.0 Build 4121 PS Vue Version 3

  • 1st3d Christina 🇺🇸 (@1st3d) reported

    @PlayStation WHY WHY WHY!!! did you change the vie app for Roku I hate it it’s awful

  • NannymossA Emily A. Nånnymöss (@NannymossA) reported

    It may be a Kobo (CANADIAN company; surprise, surprise) OR a TCL Roku TV.  Not sure. They are HERE in the town I've moved to in Hicksville. The man I'm living with cannot help me for 2 reasons:

  • colin2008 Lisa D. Harrington (@colin2008) reported

    @DaleFG2 @RokuSupport I agree!!! I have removed the psvue app and added it again, rebooted my TV and still having audio issues with it being out of sync. I have a Roku TV and this is awful!!! They need to fix this ASAP or we are getting a new service!!!

  • kianamitchell_ uummmmmmm (@kianamitchell_) reported

    I finally figured out the login for Hulu but now my Roku won’t connect to the internet.... I need the world to stop playing games I’m just tryna have a chill morning before class

  • mjthomas456 Mark Thomas (@mjthomas456) reported

    @AskPlayStation My Playstation Vue on Roku Streaming stick came up with a guide that doesn't list my Favorite Channels first - I have to scroll thru all the channels. I uninstalled and reinstalled the app on my Roku but that did not help.

  • CAPWESTEQUITIES CAP WEST EQUITIES (@CAPWESTEQUITIES) reported

    9/ -Agregators have a Achilles heel: they kill supply’s differentiation. This provides opportunity for real plateformes (tools) that help its users to differentiate themselves (ex SHOPIFY or STRIPE for e-commerce, ROKU for TV.

  • guyfromkcmo guyfromkcmo (@guyfromkcmo) reported

    The signin process was a ridiculous and tedious ordeal from hell, but the @FXNetworks @roku app allows me to watch @TheSimpsons Treehouse of Horror episodes on demand, so, yeah, I am extremely happy about this.

  • LeadChangeTrish Taco Shark 🌮🦈 (@LeadChangeTrish) reported

    @PirateAtLaw And auto play the next episode. I have an old Roku that requires me to go back to the episode screen to hit play on the next and its the WORST.

  • YesItsMeGabriel Gabriel Sawyer (@YesItsMeGabriel) reported

    @PrimeVideo Please, for the love of God, fix your Xbox One and PS4 Prime Video apps. Roku is fine. The other two have me frustrated to a point I’m willing to discontinue my student Prime and the discount that comes with it.

  • ahzoov David (@ahzoov) reported

    @AskPlayStation the new app on my Roku is nice and smooth, no cutting out, but there is a huge problem. I cannot pause the video.

  • coreycyber Corey (@coreycyber) reported

    My @Roku @MLBTV app keeps spoiling results for the @Mets game, even with spoilers off. If the game stream ends while you're watching on a delay, the box score leaks the final score and also no longer has the right seek times for the Jump to inning feature. Plz fix thx! #LGM

  • Stefaniya Stephanie aka Shmuka (@Stefaniya) reported

    Hey @paramountnet: I’m trying to watch online on Roku and it says your channel isn’t part of my subscription package, but it is (Cox San Diego). Please help!

  • berriewine berriewine (@berriewine) reported

    @jzimm413 @hulu @hulu_support My guess is this is your device. This is another reason #hulusucks for reducing devices that it supports because the roku is the worst for lag, it’s why I started using my no longer supported Samsung blu Ray player in the first place.

  • Kojo62 Kevin Jackson (@Kojo62) reported

    @AskPlayStation Problem after the latest Vue app update on Roku. My home device is no longer set, and when I try to reset it again, it fails, returning a network error. But it used up 2 of my 3 home device changes in trying. VERY bad.

    @CorbettMatt Use Roku for streaming, never give your TV internet access if you can help it. TV manufacturers have shown no regard for privacy

  • RunR0nRun Chuck Royal (@RunR0nRun) reported

    @HBOGOhelp Help needed for my Roku device, AT&T Watch TV Now not available in list of TV providers when trying to sign-in to watch HBOGO.

  • darnold328 Straw Hat Drewffy (@darnold328) reported

    @Roku hey guys just wanted to tell you that your stick is the worst piece of shit I’ve ever wasted my money on and I’ll never buy anything you ever make again. This thing sucks and never EVER works. Ty for your time.

  • BASILMEOW 😬ME😬 (@BASILMEOW) reported

    @RokuSupport YOUR CLOSED CAPTIONS HAVE HIJACKED NETFLIX AND AMAZONS SETTINGS. EVEN WHEN YOURS ARE SET TO OFF! AND YOURS ARE NOT READABLE EVER. FIX THIS OR GETTING RID OF ROKU

    @HBOGOhelp Un, no and there is no error message I'm signed in and it won't sign in on my Roku I'm signed into my Xfinity account but I'm not giving you that information.

    @hulu_support in zip code 76244 on a Roku device channel 11 (CBS) is just not moving the programming it's showing the same commercials over and over not sure if its a channel 11 issue or your end.

  • wrath_776 bubble wrath (@wrath_776) reported

    @KhaosTheoryDerb @WFTDA @WFTDAlive im not great with roku so its totally possible the error was me also

  • _xoherbalized Mandingo Flamingo (@_xoherbalized) reported

    Dear @Roku , if I pay almost $10 a month for your services I should not have to watch commercials during movies on your app. - 1st world problems.

  • samiryajnik Samir (@samiryajnik) reported

    @codywillard I have tried both Roku and Chromecast. I find Roku more stable and easier to use since Chromecast comes without a remote and requires use of your phone. This issue comes into play when you have guests at your phone trying to work the TV when you are not there.

  • lallybrochloser Elizabeth 🚑 (@lallybrochloser) reported

    Hey @Roku my streaming stick keeps giving an overheating warning. Haven't even had it a month. Please help! @RokuSupport

  • VolanteAlan Alan Volante (@VolanteAlan) reported

    @btbshowtime @NateDiaz209 It didn't help that you had to watch the prelims on ESPN plus then more pre lims on ESPN and then the actual fight on pay per view and if you don't have Roku it made it even harder

  • ChrisWiegman Chris Wiegman (@ChrisWiegman) reported

    @vaskenhauri Sounds about like the problem we had on Roku. It was a major pain.

  • ponyotrader Ponyotrader (@ponyotrader) reported

    dt broken ROKU be done with short scalp if holds the 136.40 lvl, rejects look to scale back in short

  • IceNine Ice Nine (@IceNine) reported

    @HebeSharon @Dean_Nimbly We got a Roku - no issues, other than *another* remote.

  • MontyBrinton monty brinton (@MontyBrinton) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum I am trying to watch spectrum on my computer in my bedroom and spectrum is saying I am out of the country also can not get the spectrum app to work on my roku RLC-1000 error code and I have reloaded the app on my roku and restarted the internet

  • Berry_Pezenar Perry (@Berry_Pezenar) reported

    @chefcern @bitchute @Styx666Official Still no Roku channel. I think you would be surprised by the amount of traffic it would provide, a lot of people with Smart TV's and no PC for some reason. Help to become more mainstream.

  • fishpool86 Fish (@fishpool86) reported

    The new @YouTube app sounds on @Roku are terrible!

  • itweetstuffhere Matt Erickson (@itweetstuffhere) reported

    @chadlismyname @_NotYourMom @ESPNFANSUPPORT @RokuSupport @Ask_Spectrum @ESPNPlusHelp Thanks for the help man. Just factory reset the Roku, reinstalled all the apps, signed back in to ESPN+ alone and Spectrum alone. Neither one worked. Tried Chrome & Safari on my laptop. No dice. Tried using a VPN. Still nothing. And still no response from @ESPNFANSUPPORT.

  • simonowens Simon Owens (@simonowens) reported

    It’s funny how all these streaming apps think they’re going to be Netflix killers when the Roku versions of their apps are utter dogshit that crash half the time.

  • jeffkastner Jeff Kastner (@jeffkastner) reported

    Dear @hulu, Please fix your freaking live TV Roku app! Every time I try and watch the @Cardinals , it goes back to the home screen every time there's a commercial!!

  • RyanCox20 Ryan Cox (@RyanCox20) reported

    I don't have that problem with the ESPN app at all. that was on the Roku version of the app, the ps4 version of the app pisses me off even more due to the fact that I can't even watch replays and sometimes can't even watch the nbc sports channel if a event is on @NBCSportsApp

  • sasasasaraa Sara (@sasasasaraa) reported from Denver, Colorado

    Dear @Roku not only have I been disconnected from your customer support online help chat multiple times, now I’m waiting for technical support on the phone in which the time keeps increasing. This is a great way to chill after work 😡🤬👿😩

  • DawnPossible Dawn (@DawnPossible) reported

    Methinks #crackle is broken. It's shut down my Roku player 4 times now. Really wanted to watch Ghosts of Mars *pout*
