  • hamiljc James C. Hamilton (@hamiljc) reported

    @meangreennation @cusaReport My problem is I bought espn+ because I was under the impression the games would be there not on a website I cannot watch on my roku.

  • CathyReally Cathy (@CathyReally) reported

    @Silverstar98121 @xtop For Hulu, you can from the website. Which is my big problem with these things. I mostly watch through my Roku, so I want to be able to easily do this stuff from that app, not wade through website nonsense.

  • BEEFL_Commish BEEFL_Commish (@BEEFL_Commish) reported

    @RotoPat Can't understand why someone would use an Apple TV vs buying a TV with Roku integrated. Not only do you ditch awful ATV but you don't have any extra cords

  • spatula75 Nicklas Johnson (@spatula75) reported

    I cannot recommend @TCL_USA/@Roku's TVs. They have abysmal audio sync problems with sound bars, which have been known about for years but have never fixed. Unless of course you like to see someone's lips moving 100ms before you hear them talking...

  • DoHef19 And Yet I Smile (@DoHef19) reported

    @RokuSupport I've tried this, it's not you, it's them. The internets were ablaze with comments about it during the WS. Tagged Roku so you could be aware it's a continuing issue. Both TBS and TNT apps (same company, can't be a coincidence).

  • sarahbamfordd sare (@sarahbamfordd) reported

    i can’t watch anything on my roku bc our wifi is trash, send help

  • JustaDawgAZ Ken Kakoska (@JustaDawgAZ) reported

    @hulu_support It’s back for now but have been getting the network error msg several times a day for the last 2 days. I’m a Live subscriber, Roku Express, iPad,iPhone, zip 85250.

  • MichaelMathis18 Michael Mathis (@MichaelMathis18) reported

    The Amazon fire stick is freezing and rebooting frequently now. My roku devices have never given me issues like this. #amazon #roku #firestick

  • GumbysDonkey Matthew Bailey (@GumbysDonkey) reported

    @hulu_support Good afternoon! I'm having a problem connecting to Hulu through a Roku, PC, and Android device. Not sure if there is maintenance taking place, or another problem.

  • stp147 Steven Pierce (@stp147) reported

    This is still an issue a week later. No comment from @Roku or @BigTenNetwork. I select "watch" on the event and it goes to black and then back to the screen where you can select watch again. @BigTenNetwork I pay for BTN+ to watch these events, sometimes in replay. #GetItTogether

  • Taylor_Burck Taylor Burck テイラー・バーク (@Taylor_Burck) reported

    @brlive Heads up - having issues with the 2nd half of the AAF Game, The Roku app crashed durring halftime and when I try to open it I just get an error message, I went to the website and the game will play for a few moments then refresh to a black screen

  • chuckheffernan Chuck Heffernan (@chuckheffernan) reported

    @hulu_support Fix your god damn hulu! I have dealt with you guys time after time and you keep blaming the customer. You need to update app on Roku instead of keep blaming customers. Over last 6 months you have raised price 3 times and quality has gone way down. CRAP!

  • risscobalt Jeanne Owens, author (@risscobalt) reported

    @Crunchyroll Please fix your site. I can't watch anything on it from my laptop or on my Roku right now.

  • Libradiaries Libra Diaries (@Libradiaries) reported

    @netflix Can you please fix the app on my roku TV. It keeps switching from my profile to my girlfriends profile. I'll be watching a show and it'll switch without anyone watching but me.

  • tapemachines Tape (@tapemachines) reported

    @davidbix I’ve actually always had problems with the web player and none through my Roku TV

  • clewis7711 Clewis (@clewis7711) reported

    @HIDIVEofficial Would be nice if HIDIVE had an app on roku. No on VRV. Nothing but unresolved issues with VRV on roku.

  • Original_Klatch Klatch (@Original_Klatch) reported

    @hulu_support anything I can do to prevent these error -5's happens daily, mostly on the Roku3 during 7th Heaven. It has happened on the Roku 4, but not as often. It also seems to be when a commercial is supposed to show.

  • BrianF_722 Brian F (@BrianF_722) reported

    @NickYoung665 Nope. I'm watching on my Roku and no issue. Probably your ISP

  • RetroGamer_Meph Mike Saxton (@RetroGamer_Meph) reported

    @DMthe8r @arkanjil $339 for a TCL brand 55" is the cheapest that Costco has. It is a 4k with Roku. That's the problem I am running into. Prices have gone up because people stopped carrying 1080p Tvs in favor of 4k.

  • Space_Alexander Alexander (@Space_Alexander) reported

    .@plex fix the Roku app

  • ddnelsen Denise Nelsen (@ddnelsen) reported

    @Roku My streaming stick was working great! Now not so much! Works on Samsung TV but not Sony Bravia. Getting invalid format message. Can't seem to find a resolution. Help please!!

  • ashleyfatkinson Ashley Atkinson (@ashleyfatkinson) reported

    @Roku having trouble with ROKU and cable tv. All was well until I hooked up a remote to my bedroom tv. Now in my den I cannot get to cable . Help

  • alisonzilzer Alison Zilzer (@alisonzilzer) reported

    @pwp72 @RokuSupport Hi- I’m having same problem. Internet is connected just fine and whatever app I select on my roku tv, it says the internet is NOT connected. Go through setup, it confirms connection, then says it’s not. All other devices are connected.

  • ispart Ispart Barek (@ispart) reported

    @RokuSupport can’t get my new Roku sticks activated. Your site has been down for hours HELP @Roku

  • torygsmith Tory Glen Smith (@torygsmith) reported

    Same thing happening here. #roku your device activation is broken today. Please post something on your site asap to let others know you're working on a fix. #tcl

  • wayfinderven venty-wenty ☆*:・゚ (@wayfinderven) reported

    if you have a problem w one kh ship bc they’re the same person then maybe keep the same energy for All ships that are similar (kai/nami, nami/xi, so/roku, roku/shi, etc)

  • torpedoskyline TJ Barber (@torpedoskyline) reported

    @emilypowellmua We have a Roku dev on our team and making an app for it is terrible. Your app can be no bigger than 4MB in size and their dev kit is a dumpster fire so a lot of Roku apps are buggy

  • the_Lawson Zach Lawson (@the_Lawson) reported

    @whoiscamo @kocowa_official So same issues. Noticed it this morning when trying to watch some things. Scrolling through list causes it to boot back to Roku main menu

  • thejuddz Mike Judd (@thejuddz) reported

    @hulu_support Service is back up now ... Device Roku Uktra, csp is Xfinity, location is Derry NH ... youtube TV was working fine during Hulu outage which rules out csp connectivity issues or device/ott player issues

  • Mystery19663651 Mysterygal (@Mystery19663651) reported

    @SureThen @DIRECTVNowHelp Cancel...at month 6 I bought 2 new devices Roku Tv and firestick same problems...returned devices and cancelled. Love my new stream

  • andreafitz18 A Fitzgerald (@andreafitz18) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum App on iPhone and App on Roku both not working. Troy NY. Since 2/20/19.

  • c99koder Sam Steele 🏳️‍🌈 (@c99koder) reported

    @mfdii @lozzd @ubnt @AmpliFiHome Seconding the AmpliFi recommendation, but also seconding the TCL Roku TV problem :( I eventually switched mine to a USB ethernet adapter because I had to reset the WiFi chip in the secret dev menu every few days. Hoping for a Roku firmware update to fix that!

  • andrewgwardwell andrew wardwell (@andrewgwardwell) reported

    @hulu_support live tv not streaming. Restarted Roku, my modem, same issue. Error code -3:ignored

  • EricDJuly Eric July (@EricDJuly) reported

    @DurioPatton @chrlzthagr8 Roku is not free. They have free channels (most of which I don’t watch). But you still have to pay for other channels. It works just like most of the other things like Apple, amazon, and there devices. You still need a cable login for most of the stuff.

  • ralphchikambi #GlobalGoals (@ralphchikambi) reported

    @kweseplayzw Please assist as the person l spoke to at your call center cannot help me concerning my Roku devic

  • Gstdwthflbbr John Cunningham (@Gstdwthflbbr) reported

    @HogCall @Pac12Network @Roku I streamed the game from the USC website. Much better quality broadcast last night. Night before was abysmal.

  • thejuddz Mike Judd (@thejuddz) reported

    @hulu_support Hey there Hull Support .. having error code 3 on Roku, power cycled didnt work, seems to only effect live TV, dvr'd content works

  • Petel520 Pete I (@Petel520) reported

    @TinyByteApps why does the launch keyboard not work with my 4K roku. In the past I launch the keyboard letters would appear on my tv making it easy to login. Now I can’t do launch keyboard properly. I see it on my cell not on my tv.

  • JonPessah Jon Pessah (@JonPessah) reported

    @JoeArico @optimum I'm looking into ROKU, which my son has. Big savings. Optimum price is steep, and the service is awful. I keep losing stations on my cable box. Started with one HBO channel. Now its also Ch. 2, 4. We're told we have to pay $70 for a service call to fix faulty hardware. Hell, no.

  • 1armed1der Lloyd Christmas (@1armed1der) reported

    this is by far the w o r s t airbnb i’ve ever stayed in and the roku remote they have is broken but i have it on my phone what a weird time to be alive y’all

  • sug00white Sug (@sug00white) reported

    @Roku I love my Roku. But, after talking to support because my Ultra is degrading my wireless network performance because the "Enhanced remote" requires the Roku to broadcast OVER my router on the same wifi channel and them telling me there's no option to fix it, I'm losing faith!

  • TuxedoTiff ☠Tiffernator☠ (@TuxedoTiff) reported

    @hulu_support Firestick, i was watching live tv then all of a sudden it stopped and said that error. I restarted the firestick, redid the wifi on it to refresh it and still got the error again so I'm trying it on the Roku now. Was just curious what it meant.

  • jtimm24 jeff timmins (@jtimm24) reported

    @Roku last two movies I’ve rented, playback has failed. Can y’all help me verify I can get my money back

  • Gabrielg1988 Gabriel (@Gabrielg1988) reported

    @hulu_support hoping you can help I can't view anything on my account, on note 8+ and my Roku TV. Says "There's nothing to watch here right now"

  • OnYourTurntable Eddie (@OnYourTurntable) reported

    @Sling your latest FORCED update - is the worst #EVER it's on a @Roku and compared to EVERY SINGLE OTHER Streaming app -- #Fails #miserably - @Pluto and all the other #Roku #apps just yours - #drops out, signals #ERROR #CODES pukes, dies, and chokes ARE YOU STILL WATCHING...

  • J_Irish12 Justin Irish (@J_Irish12) reported

    @DIRECTVNowHelp So it’s working on my roku, that is in the same flipping house, but not on my iPhone or Apple TV less than 30 feet away... FIX IT

  • skippytx Mike B (@skippytx) reported

    @JosephRyanRies I couldn’t find a high quality TV without all the “smart” features. Inexpensive ones no problem. My Vizio isn’t bad as I avoid the built in apps, the TCL Roku I don’t care for as you have to use the interface

  • Rickwritesnow Rickwritesnow 🎙️🎧 (@Rickwritesnow) reported

    @RokuSupport Not the problem. The @NBC roku app makes you re-register every few days. Problem is with the NBC. Why do you make us go thru the process of stopping what we're doing, log onto the computer, enter the access code blah blah. Hey NBC, your programming is already FREE.

  • peachplumpear8 peach plum pear (@peachplumpear8) reported

    @Roku I need help with my roku tv been on phone over 2 hrs no resolution. Case # 557863

  • LyNdz6 Lyndsey ❤️⚡💙 (@LyNdz6) reported

    I'm really disappointed in @RokuSupport I am not trying to put them down, but damn! All I want to do is talk to someone about an issue that I've been trying to get rectified for 3 days now. I'm about to throw the Roku out the window and run over it with my snowmobile. 👎

  • H2NTER HB (@H2NTER) reported

    Espn app on my roku TV been crashing every 10 minutes smh if anyone knows how to fix this lmk please

  • eemmiiyyaahh TrillsFav💙 (@eemmiiyyaahh) reported from Columbus, Ohio

    @lweinblatt @netflix @bigmouth @GilmoreGirls We had the same issue on our Roku! Try deleting the Netflix app and reinstalling! 😘

  • thebmoc95 RealRobertAnderson (@thebmoc95) reported

    @achitko @TVG @Roku I didn't have that issue but occasionally during streaming my feed freezes and the device restarts inexplicably.

  • anneschauer Anne Schauer (@anneschauer) reported

    @Roku Has thr worst customer service experience. Please provide a number or a way to chat.

  • lweinblatt Dubbs (@lweinblatt) reported

    Hey @netflix ! My Netflix won’t work on my roku — it keeps freezing and then taking me back to the main menu. Please help. Been going on for days. Can’t watch @bigmouth or @GilmoreGirls and I miss my friends!

  • CLOliver101 CLOliver (@CLOliver101) reported

    @AcornTV Roku app not working. Cannot sign in on TV or on PC or iPad

  • tearshiarealta Tissie💻🎮⛄☃ (@tearshiarealta) reported

    .@TeamYouTube @Roku the YouTube app on Roku is not working. It keeps kicking us back to the home screen when we try to load it. Does not do it with any other roku app. I have tried removing and re-adding the app and it still does this.
