  • bmc1204 Chris1204 (@bmc1204) reported

    @KeithMalinak @PatUnleashed @BlazeTV @theblaze I can’t login either through the app on Roku.

  • pissantjew pissantjew (@pissantjew) reported

    @tntdrama Trying to get your app on my roku. GEt your station through Sling but lost some DVR recordings and need to watch on your app. Cant find Sling as provider. #help

  • slowgln Glenn Slowey (@slowgln) reported

    @LevinTV Mark, I watch you on BlazeTV on Roku, and the reception/service is terrible, please change back to LevinTV or connect with Fox Nation. please, please

  • BreBre_8 Bre (@BreBre_8) reported

    @GlossnPumps803 I have a roku tv now and I can download any app I want but you still have to have a login to access it. I have an Xfinity login and I can watch live tv and stuff as long as I’m logged in with my cable provider or unless you pay monthly for an app

  • BreBre_8 Bre (@BreBre_8) reported

    @GlossnPumps803 Fire stick. With Roku you still need subscriptions with apps you download unless you have cable and a login

  • pins_r R.Pins (@pins_r) reported

    @BlazeTV please fix your technical issues. Roku is having major problems lately.

  • CleanLenins Paladin Palindrome (@CleanLenins) reported

    @chuuzus I can't help but read Ozai's expressions as "Oh, THAT'S why my grandfather had to wait until Roku died. I have made a mistake."

  • HedgeyeComm Andrew Freedman, CFA (@HedgeyeComm) reported

    @cgaddis720 Higher coverage if you strip out implied player revenue. #Coronavirius problem for $ROKU is the supply chain. TV OEMs, potential drop in unit sales and devices. Inventory shortage for displays, etc. -> hits account growth. If it manifests, would likely see it in app data.

  • PrettyTony8B Anthony Lewis (@PrettyTony8B) reported

    @danyork @TSN_Sports @Xfinity Yes. Download the WatchESPN app on your device, then login with your Xfinity credentials. I'm in NY watching on my Roku.

  • kwwonjiyong BIANCA | 비앙카 🦷 (@kwwonjiyong) reported

    @GetSpectrum @Ask_Spectrum can y’all fix your app on @Roku it crashes constantly 🙄

  • trashHeap Wes (@trashHeap) reported

    Dunno who was at fault, or what update fixed it. But youtube rentals on our roku no longer default to 4k on our 720p TV. ( This was causing wierd playback issues ).

  • SadittyACEKitty Shay Butter Baby 💋 (@SadittyACEKitty) reported

    So, I finally figured out what the problem was with my Roku and Disney+ 😊

  • assbott1 assbott (@assbott1) reported

    And steve austin’s broken skull challenge on the roku channel.

  • KenniTerrell Kenni (@KenniTerrell) reported

    @Roku hey, my TV keeps randomly shutting off. Like when I'm in the middle of a show or playing a game. It said it was an internet issue and even without the internet it still does it. Makes it very hard to watch shows

  • PlatinumCore16 Platinum (@PlatinumCore16) reported

    Thanks @Roku your @YouTube app can't stream anything live over 360p 👌 Every other device in my house has no problem at full 1080.

  • karenbatkins Karen Atkins (@karenbatkins) reported

    So my Roku volume was stuck on up and I .. yes me .. without any help and only a steak knife repaired it ! First time for everything!

  • cbasshardy ֆɛɮαֆтiαռ (@cbasshardy) reported

    @hulu_support Hey there, really annoying issue keep having where I cannot load shows on Roku TV.. Always get DEV30 error. Only show that works is Seinfeld. Have to load each episode for 5 sec on phone then hit play on tv. Sucks! Please help

  • good_all_is Patty Ellis (@good_all_is) reported

    @AirTVhelp For the last couple of days I have not been able to access local channels from my Airtv using Sling via my Roku device. The local channel plays for about 10 seconds then get error 16-109. I have a Roku 4670-Roku Ultra.

  • MyMelodyOfTheH1 MyMelodyOfTheHeart (@MyMelodyOfTheH1) reported

    @Feralroku That's a good idea, Roku. It would really help with the feng sui in the room, too.

  • DarkBlueMonkey RetroMonkey +3 (128K) (@DarkBlueMonkey) reported

    @backofficeshow @escragger Aye, that's its weakness. No rf stuff. Not a problem for devices like roku and sony tv that work with both rf and ir.. but it won't do IP services. But a homebrew remote might have problems with that anyway if it's bespoke or encrypted protocols.

  • PhobicCarrot PhobicCarrot (@PhobicCarrot) reported

    @JulieBoBooly I have gigabit fiber service and professional grade networking equipment (Unifi gear) and the roku's cause me so many problems.

  • will_debeast27 will_debeast (@will_debeast27) reported

    @Gothalion we don't get to watch your streams anymore because there is literally no way for us to have you on tv. No PS4 app, No Roku app, No chromecast option. Please tell @WatchMixer to fix this. We Miss You!!

  • gorgeoustaylor2 gorgeoustaylor (@gorgeoustaylor2) reported

    My damn roku channel not working 😒

  • M2Madness M3thods (@M2Madness) reported

    @SpeciousScoop @YouTube Oh I do on my computer. Roku is the problem.

  • B_lxe Beth✨ (@B_lxe) reported

    Really wish they could fix the WiFi settings on my roku bruh

  • opinyon8ed Simon Hobson (@opinyon8ed) reported

    @FeltonAndrew ITV via cable/digital is unwatchable - Streaming live at ITV Hub on Roku ... no issues 👍

  • StevenTrue Steve True (@StevenTrue) reported

    Even though I can’t watch the @WatchMarquee channel. Just discovered the @Roku app that has highlights and other videos outside the login. So looks like a good product and I want to like it. Get it figured out @Cubs and @comcast @Xfinity @comcastcares

  • Psychprofin20 Survivor (@Psychprofin20) reported

    Hi @YouTubeTV i need help! Whenever we try to watch a newly-recorded show, like Impractical Jokers or The Bachelor, the next day or two, it won’t load! It just keeps spinning! Tried playing on Roku, Fire TV stick, etc. Happens EVERY time, past 1.5 months.

  • yandromero07 Diane Dela Cruz (@yandromero07) reported

    Slow fvcking internet service, broken roku, and no signal on cignal. Urrgghhh!!!!

  • Kit_Kat_Cata 𝓚𝓲𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓵𝓵𝓮 𝓚𝓪𝓽𝓱𝓮𝓻𝓲𝓷𝓮 🏳️‍🌈 🏳️‍⚧️ (@Kit_Kat_Cata) reported

    @Chefzilla72 @waytoomuchbeer @ZhuXingzong Yeah, I really should catch up on a few things but all access is so bad Several years later and still can't fox the volume problem it has on Roku

  • rmmcgurk Rena McGurk (@rmmcgurk) reported

    @hulu_support I finally got to finish Good Trouble Season 2 Episode 16 after fast-forwarding past the 2nd to last commercial break 8 times because it keeps freezing up on my Roku causing the entire device to reboot. I just cant get to the part I want. Please fix this!

  • andyrasda_78 Saint Pragma (@andyrasda_78) reported

    @RokuSupport hi support, I am not able to add prime video to my Roku Express 37XX. When I log into my online account and search via channel store the add icon is greyed out. Help.

  • bellesapepper37 𝓜𝓮, 𝓜𝔂𝓼𝓮𝓵𝓯, 👀'𝓼 𝓑𝓮𝓵𝓵𝓮 (she/her/Mrs) (@bellesapepper37) reported

    Imma pull out my Google Chromecast and see if Hulu Live doesn't buffer using it like Roku has for an entire week now. Pixel hell and restarts and error codes galore.

  • isha_srivas isha_srivas (@isha_srivas) reported

    @cbsaahelp I have been trying to watch an episode of @BullCBS on the app (ROKU TV) but every time I try to scroll to the episode the app quits. This has happened before. Please fix it permanently.

  • Bass_Bunny BassBunny (@Bass_Bunny) reported

    @TeamYouTube Xbox one.. (Not the one x ) probably from the second year they were making them Last night I got an error code : 0xcfff43c Every time since then it just reads something went wrong try again. We also use you tube on our roku tv and it logs in fine as well as on my phone

  • _duta_ tim scott (@_duta_) reported

    @geoffryken It's also awful on Roku. Fox app is worse.

  • PatMcA1212 Patrick (@PatMcA1212) reported

    @TeamYouTube my youtube TV app is not working on my Roku nor iPhone. I followed the steps after receiving a message about my access being limited. Please restore ASAP

  • ReidJohnFuller Reid John Fuller (@ReidJohnFuller) reported

    5 minutes after this tweet, I removed power to the @roku and that seemed to resolve the issue. 2nd half has been great.

  • AdaMarie93 Ada (@AdaMarie93) reported

    Ray and I have spent over an hour trying to get our Chromecast to work with the help of their tech-support with no success. I’m about to throw it out the window and buy a Roku instead. @google

  • RichGustason Richard Gustason (@RichGustason) reported from Colorado Springs, Colorado

    @IvonnaCadaver @YoutooAmerica @Roku Actually been watching tonight on Roku. And haven't had real issues. But that dragon hitting that ship had problems LOL

  • DarthVader_o Darth Vader (@DarthVader_o) reported

    @hubbardhawkeye Only problem I had was when i didn't shut off my roku streaming stick for like 30 days.

  • chuckheffernan No Morons for President! (@chuckheffernan) reported

  • chuckheffernan No Morons for President! (@chuckheffernan) reported

    @France24_en Frace24 app is not working on Roku!!!

  • JChazen76 Jeremy Chazen (@JChazen76) reported

    @Roku @AETV fix your app. I can’t watch live tv through it. I’m missing LivePD!!!!

  • YdeJim Jim Yde (@YdeJim) reported

    @TeamYouTube @TeamYouTube I recorded a basketball game tonight and tried to watch it 45 minutes after it started on @Roku but no luck. Start from beginning hung. Rewind from live hung. I was able to watch on laptop, no problem. YOU NEED TO FIX THIS!

  • guyfromsanmateo Guy Tautenhahn (@guyfromsanmateo) reported

    @NASCARONFOX @bobpockrass For anyone that doesn’t get FS2 on their cable if you have a Roku I was able to pickup FS2 providing you sign in with your tv provider. Drag racing is on FS2 right now.

    @BreakingF24 Can you fix your Roku app!!! France 24 is not working!!!

  • DAndreCombs2 Dre C. 👑🐻 (@DAndreCombs2) reported

    @_lilhollywood Hell yeah....cable bill is a mf scam.... all you need is a smart tv, wifi, and a jail broken firestick or roku stick

  • Daisy1169 Lil Mama (@Daisy1169) reported

    @AmazonHelp Roku. Everyone I know who has a roku stick or tv has the same issue.

  • brian_sajdak Brian Sajdak (@brian_sajdak) reported

    @JSmaggs I was getting there… My brother-in-law just got a TCL 55R625 which should run about $550. It and the Hisense 55H9F or H8F are well regarded picture quality wise. I’d go with the TCL just for the Roku operating system over Android TV in the Hisense.

  • k8lyn_l k8lyn (@k8lyn_l) reported from San Antonio, Texas

    my mom wanted to watch something from her espn+ app on the tv so she went and got $70+ worth of shit to show her phone screen on the tv when they have a roku🤣🤣🤣🤣 she just found out she could download espn+ on roku and sign in🤨🤨

  • Mcodywiley M. Cody Wiley (@Mcodywiley) reported

    The Apple TV app on a Roku tv is absolutely terrible. I have fast internet and it still buffers constantly. This doesn't happen with any other streaming service. It sucks because they have some great original shows and this is making them unwatchable.

  • theanderson64 Anderson (@theanderson64) reported

    @NHLTVSupport You have GOT to fix your Roku app. Shouldn’t have to log out and back in just because I turned my TV off. Been an issue for months.

  • mjarbo Matt Jarbo (@mjarbo) reported

    I have a 4K TCL Roku TV that recently has been having brightness issues in regards to 4K content streamed from Disney Plus. Thankfully I was able to find a way to turn that off, and now I can actually enjoy what I'm watching on the service

  • lundgren_chris Christopher Lundgren (@lundgren_chris) reported

    @johnfhagan @ChiTownSports @hulu_support I see that on their website, but I don't know what I would stream it to. Roku even has the Marquee network, but you have to sign in with cable credentials.... I don't see that one as an option.

  • ceIestialwonder celeste (@ceIestialwonder) reported

    @AmazonHelp Hey there is no skip intro on the roku app at all. Please fix this thanks

  • UltimateWines The Ultimate Wine Co (@UltimateWines) reported

    @flosports - hey, your customer service SUCKS! I bought a subscription to watch the Mary ****** Classic but my log-in info isn’t recognised by Roku. It’s impossible to contact you via live chat. I need help NOW!!!

  • JimFromChicago Jim (@JimFromChicago) reported

    @WatchMarquee Cant sign in with provider on roku...way to drop the ball...

  • PatchyBites PATCHY 🦋 (@PatchyBites) reported

    @tcarman23 @RealPatchette And depending on the device, the commercials make it crash sometimes. We’ve never had problems on the AppleTV or Roku, but our PS3 can barely run Hulu long enough to watch an episode of anything without crashing.
