    @OrangMcDollhand Hmm, not sure if that would work – just to confirm, have you tried updating your Roku device as per our previous tweet? Keep us posted.

    @tetrimbath Thanks for reaching out – we're aware of the issue with the app not working on Roku, and are working on a fix. You can also try updating your system by going to Roku > Settings > System >System Update. Appreciate your patience in the meantime.

  • mamodewberry Mamo 🌠 (@mamodewberry) reported

    Reached out and they said it's a PP issue, despite me not having this issue before. Has to cancel my plan and re-enroll with a CC, but it didn't auto keep my original premium price with the recent increase... So now I can't use the Roku app and have ads on web :/

  • windowseat Laurel Krahn (@windowseat) reported

    Set up our new TCL Roku Series 6 TV yesterday including logging in to various streaming services. Today? I had to log in again to at least three of them. Here’s hoping tomorrow I won’t have to and it was a weird glitch. (It’s nifty otherwise.)

  • AustinBeckwith5 Austin Beckwith (@AustinBeckwith5) reported

    I’m pissed off!!!! @Roku why da hell are y’all having issues with YouTube and YouTube TV!!!!! Now I can’t watch TV!!!! @YouTube I need compensation or something for this!!!!!

  • sethmccurley Seth McCurley (@sethmccurley) reported

    @fatbabyfunds @theefinanceguy @SixSigmaCapital I would argue that hardware is to Roku what hardware is to Microsoft. The hardware (computer for MSFT and TV for ROKU) is necessary for the model to work, but it’s not the foundation of the business. It’s just a net positive that they own the entire continuum.

  • Bearded_Draggin Bearded_Draggin (@Bearded_Draggin) reported

    @Buckles2021 @mattswider Should have bought a ROKU then. Ps5 is the worst to watch and stream 4k. Hbo max doesn’t even offer 4k to ps5. PS5 doesn’t have Atmos or Vison. For real, the ps5 sucks as a media player. But fantastic game console.

  • deandreanew Deandrea Newsome (@deandreanew) reported

    @lavieestebelle2 Roku I feel is very reasonable price and I’ve never had problems with their TVs

  • Milkique MilkMan (@Milkique) reported

    they need to issue a mf search party for my roku remote

  • KateLeaa Katie L, BSc, SSW (@KateLeaa) reported

    @Blanco91059859 @YouTube I don’t have a Roku and all my “local channels” give a playback error (nbc, abc, cbs). If I watch MTV, TBS- those work just fine. Is this the same issue you’re having??

  • SociallyMel Just_Mel (@SociallyMel) reported

    @LifeRealm @TeamYouTube @Roku Doesn’t work for me either. I’ve done literally every trouble shooting method there is.

  • Blanco91059859 Blanco (@Blanco91059859) reported

    @Google whats up with the roku youtube tv beef i can't watch youtube TV or my youtube app isn't working at all been a loyal youtube tv customer for 2 yrs ...HELP!!

  • rockyluizYT Luis Roque (@rockyluizYT) reported

    The bally sports app on a roku tv is literally one of the worst experiences ever and the fact that they don’t even try to fix it is even more frustrating. I’m literally just tryna watch it on a tv rather than on my phone or laptop.

  • iHarshal91 harshal (@iHarshal91) reported

    @Fayithh @netflix I have the same problem on insigna Roku tv and following the article does not solve the problem

  • wasse81467 tom wasserman (@wasse81467) reported

  • TwilightPalms 💜 Angie 💜 (@TwilightPalms) reported

    I ****** hate commercial breaks I’m gonna have to work something else out But it’s gotta be available on roku tv in the US

  • JessGrewe Jess Grewe (@JessGrewe) reported

    @hulu_support I have roku express devices. It’s weird it’s just one channel not working. Other channels and streaming services are working fine so it’s not my internet or device. It’s something with cbs.

  • brian_jenks did simmons get traded yet? (@brian_jenks) reported

    @CommodoreFan64 @Roku I know how to log in i have used YouTube tv on roku for a year but the last week it won’t launch the app when you click on it it goes to the Home Screen. But thanks for your help clown

  • CommodoreFan64 CommodoreFan64 (@CommodoreFan64) reported

    @brian_jenks @Roku All you have to do is launch the YouTube app, and the option to log into YouTubeTV is at the bottom of the main menu. Works on all my Roku boxes, and sticks. I use it daily with ZERO issues. I don't know why people find this so damn hard?!?!

    @jeffyboh @Roku All current model Roku players that can load the YouTube app support YouTubeTV, Just launch the YouTube app, and click down to the bottom of the main YT menu for YouTubeTV, then follow the sign in steps, works great on all my Roku boxes, and sticks.

    my work has a roku marked down to $9 so now i can have one in my living room AND in my bedroom 🥰

  • cymbals110 Brandon “BOOGER” Johnson (@cymbals110) reported

    Dear @tntdrama - your @Roku app is straight ******* garbage. I shouldn’t have to sign-in with my provider every single time I use the app, and it shouldn’t take me 15 minutes to login every time either. Get your **** together and join the 21st century.

  • tetrimbath Tom Trimbath (@tetrimbath) reported

    It worked for a while, but the YouTube channel on my Roku is confused again ("Check Network" error, which isn't bothering any of the other channels.) Fortunately, YouTube continues to stream on my laptop. You too?

  • akilduff akilduff (@akilduff) reported

    @RokuSupport this week when i open CNNgo i get a message i don't have access to services/contact your provider. provider still offers CNN. if navigate to goes main roku menu. i've rebooted, factory reset, deleted/readded. i need an activation code for CNNgo or to sign in/out out?

  • DaGinga80 #GingaNation (@DaGinga80) reported

    @Roku @RokuSupport I'm having issues with the Live TV feature. When I click the * to filter to recent channels, it freezes and won't let me click anything. It makes the sounds like I'm doing something but nothing happens. What gives?

  • TeamYouTube TeamYouTube (@TeamYouTube) reported

    @shanakinz We don't have an exact timeline yet, but our team's working to get this fixed the soonest. In the meantime, you can do a system update (Roku>Settings>System>System Update) and check if that will resolve the issue. Keep us posted.
