    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

  • BsSanville #1Beaver Believer (@BsSanville) reported

    @SportsNutDavid @MountainWest @Stadium @Roku I have stadium on sling tv. Not sure quality will be that good

  • agarwaen99 agarwaen99 (@agarwaen99) reported

    @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.

  • sportsfan702 Matt Seplak (@sportsfan702) reported from Fort Worth, Texas

    @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*

  • KennyFoley3 🇺🇸 Kenny (@KennyFoley3) reported

    @OphirGottlieb I think they initiated the speakers due to a big problem they were having with some of the Roku TV's sound volume control. The "Roku Tablet" would be a 100% owned distribution channel.

  • richstarnes Rich Starnes (@richstarnes) reported

    @STARZHelp That’s Apple TV. Similar problem on Roku stick. The iPhone app just has a black screen. None of them will play the movie, even with a download on the iPhone.

  • emewhort Eric Mewhort (@emewhort) reported

    @jones_twj @Roku I really hope they don't remake three's company, without Ritter it'll be awful.

  • JenKamstra River Winchester (@JenKamstra) reported

    @hulu_support Also the Roku is brand new. So there's that. And it's also not providing the best experience for me. At all. More like the worst.

  • BASILMEOW 😬ME😬 (@BASILMEOW) reported

    @RokuSupport YOUR IDEA FOR GLOBAL SUBTITLES IS NOT OK. AND DISCRIMINATION TOWARD OLD FOLKS AND DISABLED BEING THEY DON'T WORK. ROKU MAKES ALL STREAMING NOT ACCESSIBLE NOW! THE DESIGN IS AWFUL. NO EDITING MAKES THEM READABLE OR PLEASING TO THE EYES.

  • paris_fadden Paris Fadden (@paris_fadden) reported

    @plex @engadget New UI across platforms is terrible. Anyone running more than one server knows what I'm saying. Talk about terrible functionality in being able to toggle quickly to content on each server. I had one Roku device and was like "ok" I can deal. Then you roll it out everywhere. WTF...

  • ponyotrader Ponyotrader (@ponyotrader) reported

    $ROKU Downtrend intraday channel broken. Will revisit on next set up. Maybe a bounce into 135.27 area but prefer not to get chopped out into close

  • x__101311 🏆 (@x__101311) reported

    my roku remote is not working 😩 ..

  • Chanel732 beautifulmessyball (@Chanel732) reported

    @LawCrimeNetwork @LawCrimeNetwork @danabrams I need help logging into my account on your website. I joined/paid through @Roku & your Roku app doesn’t always work, plus I’d like to join the chats. My Roku login doesn’t work on the website. I have tried emailing tech support weeks ago. No response.

  • Mvanbramerart Mike Van Bramer (@Mvanbramerart) reported

    @InputPodcast @Philo same issue here on the philo website and on roku. i wasnt sure if something happened with my account but your comment confirms its other.

  • BarryMontz Barry Montz (@BarryMontz) reported

    @candacecbure So how can I watch it I have Hallmark movies and Hallmark channel but can't figure be thus program on my Roku Help

  • LatoneReaves A Malcolm xite ® (@LatoneReaves) reported

    Watching them create a roku account is 100x worst

  • SusanGrunewald1 Susan Grunewald (@SusanGrunewald1) reported

    My father somehow unlearned how to use his Roku and cannot handle using an internet search engine. Being able to voice activate his Google home to play shows and movies and give him the weather has vastly improved his life (and mine -- fewer yells of frustration & calls for help)

  • JamesSinko James Sinko (@JamesSinko) reported

    Hey @Xfinity you got to make it so I can watch another Xfinity account on Roku from a different internet. I can watch on Phone app, computer but not roku. Fix it please!

  • JenniferWillen Jennifer Willen (@JenniferWillen) reported

    Having an issue with @YouTubeTV on a @Roku stream has frozen twice and roku rebooted. Happens with ID and TLC.

  • bearinggirl BearingGirl (@bearinggirl) reported

    @ATTHelp DirectTVNOW..Your new AT&T Tv app is not working (apple tv) No channel will load. Old app on mobile and roku still working.

  • heatherflax1 heatherflax (@heatherflax1) reported

    @ranaenelly @RealSaavedra I got a Roku and stream it on Klowd tv... I’m in the process of breaking up with Fox, but I still have to get my Tucker and Hannity fix when I can.

  • mikejjennings Mike Jennings (@mikejjennings) reported

    @29xthefun yeah, it's definitely an option! I have a Roku for smart stuff so I'd just have to get something for Freeview perhaps. But then that does also open up the potential for terrible speakers

  • mark_lavis Mark Lavis™ (@mark_lavis) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum I suddenly got an ELI-1010 error when trying to login to my ESPN account on Roku and now I can't login to my account at all; even though username and password are absolutely correct.

  • Chells1984 Chells (@Chells1984) reported

    @SpotifyCares I'm pissed off that they keep messing with it. If it's not broke don't fix it! I want my widget back. I gave up on getting the app for Roku. I hate the new layout. But taking away the widget was stupid.

  • BlackndScarlett S (@BlackndScarlett) reported

    I regret buying a @Roku Ultra all the time when none of the listening features work right. I had the app to help w/private listening since the actual remote doesn’t work & now my phone can’t find my device all of a sudden. I have done all the troubleshooting things @RokuSupport

  • KevinKindelber2 Kevin Kindelberger (@KevinKindelber2) reported

    @HighspotsWN Yeah. I will try again, and Email if necessary. Thanks! I know it'll work, probably operator error! I also have Roku but there's no place for me to log in on the app...

  • BASILMEOW 😬ME😬 (@BASILMEOW) reported

    @AmazonHelp thing is I have never had a problem with my roku player that I have had for years. the only time is using your app. My firestick is not usable. never has been. It is very obvious you have technical issues. I hvae never been able to use amazon prime without a problem on any device

  • beachn_brunette Michelle (@beachn_brunette) reported

    @AMC_TV This is the 2nd week now that I’ve tried to sign in to my Premier account via your streaming channel on my Roku, & it just sits at ‘Loading...’. 😠 I tweeted you about this last week, with no reply. FIX THIS. For such a high profile network, your streaming channel sucks!!
