  • Ivan_dssd Ivan H (@Ivan_dssd) reported

    @NBCNightlyNews it’s hard to watch your news in the app now. It’s slow & crashes my Roku. Please do something. The NOW steam is useless. Don’t automatically start the user there. That’s the problem.

  • jwp1973 Jay Prindable (@jwp1973) reported

    @hulu do I blame you guys or @Roku for how bad Hulu live works. Great concept but terrible performance

  • Sarcastically1 SarcasticallyDeranged (@Sarcastically1) reported

    @DiscoveryID 6 days since I can't "Activate " the IDGO through @Roku FIX IT, PLEASE! Your website doesn't respond after entering the activate code.

  • erjessen Ed Jessen (@erjessen) reported

    @hulu @hulu_support currently having issues watching the new ep of Handmaid's Tale, getting a 404 error on my Roku TV. Wife is unhappy. Pls advise. #handmaids #onthewall

  • jaimeodom Jaime Odom (@jaimeodom) reported

    @hulu_support @hulu this service is terrible. Hulu hasn't worked almost all day. No live TV. No DVR. I'm about to go by a Roku stick and subscribe to YouTubeTV at this point. It shouldn't take all day for your techs to figure this out #wasteofmoney #ineedarefund

  • dmentd82 Richard Cranium (@dmentd82) reported

    @hulu_support Having issue accessing @HandmaidsOnHulu on @Roku and @amazonfiretv

  • cane_voice Aaron Lowe (@cane_voice) reported

    @hulu_support so I WAS watching live pd on A&E on hulu live on my roku TV. Then suddenly it stopped with a connection error, same thing on my smartphone. All other apps on TV work fine.

  • bekahanneparker Bekah⚓️ (@bekahanneparker) reported

    So Target is even more amazing than I already thought. My roku is broken so I did an order pick up and in less than 30 min I drove to target and they delivered a new one to my car so I didn’t have to get my tired baby out of the car. 🎯

  • mistymtnreverie MistyMountainReverie (@mistymtnreverie) reported

    @Jonnyboy9595 @hulu_support Also not working on my phone, Fire tablet or Roku

  • gsbarkdull Greg and Sandy (@gsbarkdull) reported

    I’m getting the “ Network Error” message on my TV using Roku.

  • Missyg28 Melissa Gardner (@Missyg28) reported

    @Roku your new update “remote” version on your mobile phone is god AWFUL..... please please i beg you to change it back to the old way! It was soooo much easier to use and not so touchy and goes all crazy like this new version 😬 i wish i haven’t even updated the Roku app now

  • paul_jackiewicz Paul Jackiewicz (@paul_jackiewicz) reported

    I’m having issues with live tv on my phone and roku... nothing will playing and stuff on dvr is missing

  • Jakeah_21 Jakeah (@Jakeah_21) reported

    @hulu_support my Hulu account won’t load on my phone or on my Roku tv. Keeps saying error playing video

  • Elder_Cincy_Guy Tom Lewis (@Elder_Cincy_Guy) reported

    @hulu_support Heya, my other streaming services are working (via Roku) but Hulu is giving me a Network Error message. Was working fine until about fifteen minutes ago. Pls advise, thanks.

  • DrScotti51 DRScotti (@DrScotti51) reported

    @PatriciaRN66 @directvnow I’m having the same problem. Very aggravating. I’ve also just started have repeated internet drops only on my Roku, appleTV and all others fine.

  • NeonMd82 NeonMeateDream🦑 (@NeonMd82) reported

    @MondoVulgare @Shudder Seriously I’m going with #Roku if they don’t fix their shit. Apple is getting incredibly sloppy. Im hoping the new software this fall will rectify it but I’m not holding my breath. Great design hardware wise but it’s a mess UI wise.

  • egudenas1 Erik Gudenas (@egudenas1) reported

    @SupportTheResistance1 this $BYND and $SHOP worst offenders. Can almost excuse $BYND due to tiny float and super high short interest. $shop also had some brief pullbacks. $ROKU is truly unbelievable

  • ChrisFernandes Chris Fernandes (@ChrisFernandes) reported

    @Nikki_Skywalker @indiewrestling Thanks. Not working on Roku or my laptop. Bummer.

  • CPGOAT Chad (@CPGOAT) reported

    @MikeyLaFraah89 @beyondwrestling Roku and Chrome both having issues. Tonight’s show didn’t super excite me on paper so think I’ll just call it too.

  • jddemcher Josh Demcher (@jddemcher) reported

    @hulu_support Seeing the same issue on our Roku, will report network error each time I try and watch, have to uninstall and re-add each time. Also see the network error while watching when there really isn't an issue. Please fix @hulu_support

  • lynchem1 Ellen Lynch (@lynchem1) reported

    @feedingtubepaul @Readyornotfilm @tvland @SpectrumReach Feelin’ your pain. My grandson was at our house Sunday and wanted to binge Swamp People (help me) 😡 on our Roku TV...and it was filled with VW Arteon commercials that would repeat six times in one commercial break! I still have not recovered!

  • BigShambowski MarK Condon #AntiSmarkSuperstar 😈☠ (@BigShambowski) reported

    Having to use that Web Video Caster app because Twitched was shut down. Wouldn't have this problem if Amazon just kept Twitch on Roku.

  • PayRollBlues Antonio Rodriguez (@PayRollBlues) reported

    The problem with a Roku Tv is that when the remote dies you’re ******.

  • tmule Thomas Muellner (@tmule) reported

    Proud Millennial moment... just had my mom call me saying that the TV was broken. Got her to FaceTime and flip the camera to show me the Roku and Xfinity remotes in her hands... walked her through a simple reset Black Mirror style and got that shit humming. Let’s gooooooooo 😂

  • atliberalandold OldAndCranky (@atliberalandold) reported

    grrrrrr. The input button on our TV is not letting us change the HDMI ( whatever ******** that is) so we can use our roku to watch Hulu. And that is clearly the most first world problem I've ever had.

  • sprlt47 Dan Williams (@sprlt47) reported

    @Ninja Just lost Twitched app on my Roku. @twitch needs a streaming app for TV’s that’s an option outside of staring at a phone or computer screen. Need content creators that stream on twitch to help make something happen. @CouRageJD @timthetatman @NICKMERCS @BasicallyIDoWrk @DrLupo

  • monkeysbears bookmagic 📚🐶 (@monkeysbears) reported

    @hulu_support all my shows from my list are gone except 2. When I search, it says some are no longer available although I was just watching. I rebooted my Roku. Same issue with app

  • 67Aspirintype Officially Resisting 🌊 (@67Aspirintype) reported

    @SMTasto @todays_4cast Same. Can watch live TV, but can’t even get listing of networks to show up. Restarted Roku twice with no help.

  • IBJIYONGI Black&QueerChanda Prescod-Weinstein 🙅🏽‍♀️ 🇧🇧🌈 (@IBJIYONGI) reported

    There should be an award for “Worst @Roku App”

  • GHWWEFAN23 #WOKEN Pro Wrestling and Sports Fan23 (@GHWWEFAN23) reported

    @hulu i am having problems loading a show i want to watch on your roku app so can u please fix it please

  • dennisupdike DEN (@dennisupdike) reported

    @tullster21 @Roku @RokuSupport Still, frustrating as it may be, being nasty to their support people won’t solve your issue.

  • Rubberbandits Rubber Bandits (@Rubberbandits) reported

    RTE player is a buggy pile of shit that is crashing my roku stick. I didn’t think it was even possible to crash those.

  • UnfocalPoints Kevin (@UnfocalPoints) reported

    @hulu_support i have Hulu through a Roku TCL tv and it won’t let me sign in and tells me there’s a network error. I can log on phone on my phone just fine.

  • TaishaMPerez Taisha Perez (@TaishaMPerez) reported

    @hulu_support something is up with this app. Can’t use it on my iPhone or my roku. Telling me there’s a connection error but there isn’t. Seems others are having the same issue...

  • 1WorldTrader SA (@1WorldTrader) reported

    @hulu_support Hulu forced a sign in just now , but now I can't login on Roku or mobile app. And yes, I'm using the correct log in info. Was just using the app a few hours ago.

  • sarahwolffee sarah (@sarahwolffee) reported

    @hulu help I can’t sign in on my roku but on everything else I can all I want to do is watch b99

  • 11000Wattz ajbreezy (@11000Wattz) reported

    @RokuSupport my roku remote keeps becoming unresponsive and has a flashing green light. Only way to recover is factory reset. Plz help 😔

  • guill_creative Guillory Creative (@guill_creative) reported

    @AmazonHelp @amazon All streaming devices in the house - 2 2nd gen FireTV’s, 1 Fire Stick and 1 Echo Cube are going to all be replaced with Roku streaming devices. Your customer service is the absolute worst. #NoMoreAmazonDevices

  • Peter51465517 Peter (@Peter51465517) reported

    @AprilTara @Sling @Roku Very bad service, went to @YouTubeTV and haven’t had not one single issue in 2.5 months, you won’t be disappointed

  • NamesToken Token (@NamesToken) reported

    @SuperNin10Bros I know I'm pissed even if it was only a dollar I still paid for it! But I just downloaded Roku cast and it works the same actually might be a bit better quality too!

  • brianmoeller18 brian moeller (@brianmoeller18) reported

    @Roku puppet master doesn’t come up as an option in a search under amazon but it comes up in amazon. Just a glitch probably.

  • TampaCricket Michael McRae (@TampaCricket) reported

    Management should be selling $ROKU shares near highs and when the can. If they run out, I'm sure the *** will issue them more options. LOL

  • DylanReeve Dylan Reeve (@DylanReeve) reported

    @thomasbeagle Now I'm curious, I will tally in this tweet: 4x desktop PCs 1x "server" (desktop PC running Linux) 2x Laptops, 1x Chromebook 2x iPads (+1x mostly broken one) 4x Android phones 1x Android tablet 2x Amazon FireTV 1x Roku That's most of it.

  • EdgeSetter Paul (@EdgeSetter) reported

    @y_yama_saki We have a bunch of Roku Sticks at my house mainly for YouTubeTV, haven't had a problem with them yet

  • veroicone Veronica Mars (@veroicone) reported

    Lately I’ve been having a lot of issues with the Twitch app on Roku, may be time to get a new streaming device for my tv ...

  • sohardtobegood Cathy Briscoe (@sohardtobegood) reported

    @RokuSupport This May be my last Roku. They seem to have such a short life. My current one has what started out as minor lip syncing issues, but has evolved into some strange aspect ratio issues. I used to think it was a Hulu issue but now some weird stuff is happeng w/ Sling.

  • uk_dreamer199 RJK 🇬🇧🖖🏽🛸👽 (@uk_dreamer199) reported

    @hulu app still not working on my iphone @hulu_support it works fine on my roku... pls fix as soon as possible thx

  • Burnsblu Extreme Bagholding (@Burnsblu) reported

    @Roku constant overheating issues as soon as I setup the ROKU Premiere, total disappointment, I’m returning this junk and back to Amazon Fire, plus no where on your website to leave feedback or talk to customer service

  • KAMEricaGA1 K_AMErica_GA (@KAMEricaGA1) reported

    @swingline6016 @RealMattCouch It is terrible that local channels do not air rallies any longer. I am only able to watch on tv because we have Roku and subscribed to @OANN

  • WhollyHealthnut Rana (@WhollyHealthnut) reported

    @Roku I've been trying to get a defective remote replaced for weeks. Terrible customer service! Never had this issue with my @amazon Fire Stick....just saying. So disappointing.

  • bbjeagle JOY (@bbjeagle) reported

    @DIRECTVNowHelp When I access Direct tv now on ROKU I am getting fluctuating volume levels every minute or so. Help me!

  • perknc Loran Perkins (@perknc) reported

    @directvnow DVR hasn’t worked for 2 days. Restarted both Roku and FireTV. Uninstalled and reinstalled app. Still getting error message. Help!

  • fdossantos fernando dos santos (@fdossantos) reported

    @slinganswers Restarted the app again (on Roku Premiere+) and the program listing is now available. I can also access the channels against. Must’ve been a glitch

  • OttoWeinert Hercules Rockefeller (@OttoWeinert) reported

    @NotFunnyJ @HooplaDigital it does help, I think I have that loaded on my Roku. Thx!

  • tjennings_art Theresa Jennings (@tjennings_art) reported

    @ChrisWiegman @Roku Not the setup, but the closed captioning, the picture quality, not having to log in weekly and reset my closed captioning, and so far, not having a show seize in the middle and then I get the Roku splash screen that doesn’t go away. We’ll see. It’s only the first day.

  • maggie162 Maggie Wiggin (@maggie162) reported

    @juliefalbo If it's a TV channel with an app, yes. I use my mom's cable login for basically everything. I haven't come across any streaming service or channel that has an app that *isn't* on Roku.,

  • thunderclap999 Thunderclap △⃒⃘ ⚯͛ (@thunderclap999) reported

    @FOXSports @fs1 your app is the absolute worst. Freezes every 5 minutes on roku

  • djlilbooduh Djlilbooduh (@djlilbooduh) reported

    @zestyexuberance @Sling Agreed I have been running into a lot of issues with buffering, screen going black and lag. I use Fire Stick and Roku. These issues did not happen when I first subscribed when Sling Blue was in beta.

  • Trace_Archon Tracy Archon (@Trace_Archon) reported

    @cupoftea918 @Roku I am having the same issue.

  • pcdebol MooCowMan (@pcdebol) reported

    @donkinmonez @aaron_tagerson I have some issues with the ROKU locking up from time to time in my TCL. Have to pull the power plug and reboot can be a pain in the butt. Moved it to a room where it doesn't get watched as much have had no more issues.
