  • seldo Laurie Voss (@seldo) reported

    @troutgirl @cramforce @jkup @geteero We fixed our Roku problem by buying the special version that has an Ethernet port and plugging it into the router as well.

  • callme_ayee asia ❤️ (@callme_ayee) reported

    ima need A&E to fix their app for Roku tv...I shouldn’t have to press play every time after a commercial is over 😐

  • Heepojeep Greg Childree (@Heepojeep) reported

    @TeamYouTube when watching on my roku ultra it frequently freezes when trying to go to a live channel or trying to access a recording on my dvr. I have rebooted (many times) my download speed is GREAT. I have no issues with any of my other roku channels disney +, hulu, prime.

  • melferburque xian (@melferburque) reported

    trying to watch miracle workers using a comcast login for the tbs app on my roku tv (because there aren;t enough layers there), and there are EIGHT ******* COMMERCIALS at once. **** this shit. not worth it.

  • MilRazzleberry Mil 🇺🇸 (@MilRazzleberry) reported

    @wajhawk @TSzymialis thanks for your tweets. my problem is i have no account on a cable company so i can't get it on my roku.

  • SageAine1 Anna 17 ✝️🇺🇸⭐⭐⭐ (@SageAine1) reported

    Hey @Roku why are you offering 30 day free trial subs to many channels, not to be billed until the end of 30 days but your CHARGING THE FEE UPFRONT. That's bait and switch. Reporting fraud through my bank. Better fix it.

  • plex Plex (@plex) reported

    @imJGott Aside from a few platforms like Roku and maybe some smart TVs (which would basically be the same as what you have already anyway), you should be able to grab screenshots yourself. If you post in our forums, others can likely help get some if you don't have a particular platform.

  • MilRazzleberry Mil 🇺🇸 (@MilRazzleberry) reported

    @TSzymialis @donaldrusso994 @yourmama210 @OANN i downloaded it on roku but it needed me to login to a cable company. i don't have cable.

  • TraderWade Wade Carman (@TraderWade) reported

    Today was difficult. The good risk reward setups came and went quickly in the morning. I stopped out of 2 of my 3 $ROKU 75 put positions and it looks to have broken the downtrend it was on. Traded BA 100 puts this morning for small gain. Still holding 3 $BYND 50 puts Apr 17

  • itsNoonieJ FEB07. (26)👀 (@itsNoonieJ) reported

    Im so damn delusional from day 2334322 of quarantine; I’m trying to control my PS4 with my damn roku and mad because it’s not working ! LORD SAVE ME ! 🤣🤣🤣

  • Lv44EnderShaman A Heartbreaker, Charles™ (@Lv44EnderShaman) reported

    @MattMcMuscles Now, see, Retro Crush is something I can get behind fully. I've already got TokuSHOUTsu coming to Pluto TV, so one more service I can watch to get my Japanese Animes fix legally, even with ad support, I'll support wholeheartedly. I'll fire it up on my Roku and go to town.

  • jamesplake721 BROTHER LAKE🇺🇸🇮🇱Q (@jamesplake721) reported

    I can't see it. I will catch it later. The app is not working on my roku

  • K9kimC K9Kim-Chee (@K9kimC) reported

    @Keiththecop @CompoundBoss @TheCumiaShow @CompoundAmerica App not working on roku, ipad, or iPhone. I even tried to reset password and says my email is not on file. So you broke something.

  • djheatherww heather (@djheatherww) reported

    @CompoundAmerica @TheCumiaShow @LandauDave Not working on roku

  • SkepticCyclist 🚴 🚵 Jason King (SkepticCyclist) 🎿⛷ (@SkepticCyclist) reported from Pomona, California

    See a @Sling update on my @Roku anticipating finally fixing the issue, that has been occurring for years, of the guide always defaulting to “All Channels”. No. Still the frustration of having to do 5 unnecessary steps to change the guide to “my channels” every time I open the APP

  • BclarkeNancy Nancy B. Clarke (@BclarkeNancy) reported

    @cenkuygur @Roku @PlutoTV @XumoTV @Xfinity @Facebook @Twitch It is easy to have a solution for the Chinese when they knew what the problem was. They probably had a solution before they even put this virus out.

  • lepepe_sm zach (@lepepe_sm) reported

    @SmiteSpace worst tv i ever bought was a roku

  • VimeoStaff VimeoStaff (@VimeoStaff) reported

    @meJustinPierce Sorry, there are known issues with the Roku app. Unfortunately, we have no estimate for if or when our TV app team will be able to prioritize work on the Vimeo Roku app, but we truly appreciate you taking the time to bring these issues to our attention.

  • Ho_Amandaa Amanda H (@Ho_Amandaa) reported

    Add The Nanny to @netflix because I miss that show. Only the first 2 seasons are on Roku.... #help

  • Young_ProPhecy1 James Pittman (@Young_ProPhecy1) reported

    $ROKU eating today.. Airline stocks got hit the worst

  • TheRedTopaz Karma (@TheRedTopaz) reported

    @CxdedDarkness Watching him do so, he couldn't help but to grow worried for Roku. Karma noticed his shaking hands, but felt like it was rude if he interrupted the boy in the middle of his typing. Surely, Karma would say something if the shaking got worse.

  • Nordysfavfan Wildfan (@Nordysfavfan) reported

    @ediison @FargoRenegade @Diddy @RokuSupport @Roku @amazonfiretv @hulu_support @netflix At least someone is trying to help. I@areas of a jackass response maybe you could have some damn compassion yourself!

  • AlexMcCollister Alex McCollister (@AlexMcCollister) reported from Lincoln, Nebraska

    I think I’m going to swap out NextDNS’s block list for AdGuard’s. After living with the one from Next for a few weeks, too much feels broken. AdGuard feels like a happier medium of keeping my tv from telling Roku what I’m watching but still letting me load tweets (e.g.)

  • Misty_Lake Misty Lake | Photographer (@Misty_Lake) reported

    @SXM_Help I got a notification for @HowardStern but when I opened the mobile app I cannot find his channels. Both his channels were in my favorites. His channels only show up on Roku now. I updated my app but still not there. No other channels are missing. Please fix.

  • KMacca33 Kim M (@KMacca33) reported

    @Oneshowywoman @MorleyAnnabel @BBCSounds @BBCiPlayer Having sign in issues to i Player on TV (Roku box) & website.

  • FargoRenegade Charlie(Fargo Renegade) (@FargoRenegade) reported

    @goldengodzilla @Diddy YES!! I feel horrible. I spend as much time in each room as I can to keep them company. But they are bored. That why I figured I could give some of them my netflix login and have them use roku's. But I dont have the money to buy them since wife lost her job because of all this...

  • __The_Giver__ Smiley (@__The_Giver__) reported

    @HISTORY fix your app on @Roku. After I'm forced to watch 5 commercials, i get sent back to the home screen. I then have to click resume, where I am then forced to watch more commercials. Every. Single. Time.

  • op7120 Steve Leslie (@op7120) reported

    @realfrankboal Basic antenna gets all local channels. If you have WiFi get Roku. The only issue is finding Royals games. They could be found on fox sports in sling, but they can’t show them anymore. Sling is a channel that carries a lot of the cable channel within their channel.

  • serkankunduz10 serkan kunduz (@serkankunduz10) reported

    @Roku @iHeartRadio @FOXTV @aliciakeys @billieeilish @MariahCarey Hi i bought roku premiere but i could not install the firefox browser do help it is not active

  • SaraaEissa26 Sara Eissa (@SaraaEissa26) reported

    @rockotier She was superior is every way. Had that oof- kyoshi had. The problem solving Aang had. And didnt hesitate to kill villains (unalaq) like Roku did.

  • patrickapjm Black.tingzz (@patrickapjm) reported

    @FunimationHelp the funimation appnis having a error and qont load on my roku device or my phone

  • lewnitedstates Lewy Lewy (@lewnitedstates) reported

    Do you think God is upset that most of my prayers are please help me find the roku remote

  • patrickapjm Black.tingzz (@patrickapjm) reported

    @FunimationHelp There is still a problem with funimation on roku it is running extremely slow

  • ETaters Epic Taters (@ETaters) reported

    @CharlieDaniels The PBS channel on Roku is terrible. People should be able to go watch John Prine episode on Austin City Limits to help him. Seriously. All of that.

  • Ralph_Seegobin Ralph Seegobin (@Ralph_Seegobin) reported

    I have wasted thirty minutes trying to sign into my @Fandango and @FandangoNOW accounts. I’ve changed passwords now three times and I still can’t sign in on my Roku player to watch a movie I just purchased. It’s ridiculous!

  • KPG_ KPG👩‍👧‍👧 (@KPG_) reported

    I don’t like roku TVs. I’ve had the hardest time with the one I have and I don’t understand the issue. The remote is so delayed it makes me want to throw it at the ******* wall.

  • ediison Edison Ter-Mkrtchyan (@ediison) reported

    @FargoRenegade @Diddy @RokuSupport @Roku @amazonfiretv I’m sure you guys are capable of sending some pieces of equipment to help the elderly. @hulu_support @netflix

  • fischersblack Fischer Black (@fischersblack) reported

    $ROKU:”We recommend that OTT ad buyers buy directly from Roku or trusted publishers on the platform. When buying from other sources, and especially open exchanges, the buyer may be better served to use technology that can help with verifying the source of the ad requests” $TTD 👀

  • Rev_Colleen Emberella (@🏠) 🏳️‍🌈 (@Rev_Colleen) reported

    My outlook on staying at home for another month has just improved exponentially. I just discovered that adult swim is free on Roku! God help me, I'm going to binge all 9 seasons of Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Season 1, episode 1, Susan Powter #StopTheInsanity

  • Post_Farmer M.C.H. (@Post_Farmer) reported

    The @Roku remote has to be one of the worst designs ever.

  • lpolski Larry Polski (@lpolski) reported

    @BenRogers @PrimeVideo That is an error because your Laptop does not output a copy protected signal over HDMI to the projector. Amazon will not play unless you use an output capable of that. I know you have said in the past that you didn’t have an AppleTV or Roku but that is what I would recommend.

  • FargoRenegade Charlie(Fargo Renegade) (@FargoRenegade) reported

    @Diddy At my retirement home all the residents are quarentined to each unit and no visitors. If anyone has old roku sticks or anything like that where residents could watch netflix or hulu in their rooms to help pass time. We are trying to come up with any ideas.

  • RyanBarjam Ryan Barjam (@RyanBarjam) reported

    @adultswim your app for the Roku is not working when i sink it, can you tell me why

  • Sassers_ Susan Sassi (@Sassers_) reported

    Send help immediately! I can't find my Roku remote.

  • Feydakyn Paul Hurtado🏕️ (@Feydakyn) reported

    @thehorrorchick @patrickbromley Amazon Fire is kinda trash. I have way less trouble with Roku, but I usually just watch via browser on my PC. Sorry you're having issues that sucks!

  • THEJordonBrown Jordon Brown Snarker of Tweets First of His Name (@THEJordonBrown) reported

    @hulu_support It’s on a Roku TV. And it’s every show we’ve tried to watch. Sometimes there’s an error. Sometimes it just freezes. Sometimes the whole app crashes.

  • hyperion5182 Hyperion (@hyperion5182) reported

    @GooGwaba @ChanelRion And it turns out they're on my Roku. Fixing issues.

  • WallSt_Dropout Wall St. Dropout (@WallSt_Dropout) reported

    @CDTalk1938 @bluff_capital What will certainly get a boost is premium subscriptions. This Could help offset weakness in ads business. In addition, people will run out of things to watch on premium channels. There may be increased discovery on the Roku channel which should help ad mix.

  • MrMockly Tyler Mock (@MrMockly) reported

    @Roku makes the ******* worst TVs lost my remote and I just moved so I can’t turn it on period, just ******* put a power button on your retarded TV.

  • CoachMintsWHS Mike Minter (@CoachMintsWHS) reported

    @Roku my Roku express won’t turn on. It’s plugged into the tv, when I go to the input there’s nothing there. If unplug it, then plug it back in, the Roku letters dance on the screen then it turns off. Help please, because your website just sends me to articles, not real help

  • vbarot87 Vineet Barot (@vbarot87) reported

    @mzagaja Yeah we have the Samsung smart tv and while it’s not terrible it’s not as reliable as a simple Roku was

  • puddytalltale Puddy Talltale (@puddytalltale) reported

    In these difficult and troubling times, if we could all come together and help @AETelevision pull their head out and get their @Roku app to stop crashing that would be groovy.

  • jennakgym Jenna (@jennakgym) reported

    @whiptotriple I use Roku as my streaming service, and the Disney+ app was so laggy and buggy I canceled the subscription after one week. I’ve never had issues with any other Roku channels.

  • PoorJonathan JonathanDRich (@PoorJonathan) reported

    @RokuSupport I just bought a new receiver and I'm having trouble using the Roku in zone 2. Who do I call to help me troubleshoot this.

  • nanoscapes susan gainen (@nanoscapes) reported

    @Roku So, I just changed my password. and again and again it is not recognized. HELP.

  • TONEmavismusic TONE Mavis Mgmt (@TONEmavismusic) reported

    @Roku I’ve had my Roku device for less than 9 months. Today I started to get a over heating notification. Help, I’m on “Stay at Home” orders. This can’t happen now!!! Lol

  • kunleidoscope Quarantine and Chill (@kunleidoscope) reported

    the roku remote is one of the worst designed remote ever. This is not even a joke. They need to do better. I loose this remote every 5 seconds. Im so aggrevated right now lmaoo

  • Taylor_Laine21 Coach Mitchell (@Taylor_Laine21) reported

    @hulu_support This is not helpful. If you read my tweet, I have tried all of those steps that apply to the Roku. I’ve uninstalled/ reinstalled, I’ve logged out and logged back in, I’ve unplugged the Roku. There’s a problem either with the Hulu or the Roku App.

  • vschaumann1 Vschaumann1 (@vschaumann1) reported

    @jennybeansbooks @99freemind Good thought. I would be curious to cuz I don't have one but I thought about it. I do however have Roku. I can give that up without a problem any of it if need be.
