    Anyone else having trouble with the @ringofhonor HonorClub roku app?

  • ashubert A Shubert (@ashubert) reported

    Piece of crap Spectrum app on @Roku won’t let me filter the guide by recent channels. Says “no channels match.” IVE BEEN WATCHING DIFFERENT CHANNELS ALL DAY!! C’MON @Ask_Spectrum , GET WITH IT!!! I’ve no way to toggle between two games since the RW button doesn’t work anymore.

  • tradishskinbyrd Bitchtopher Columbitch (@tradishskinbyrd) reported

    Dear @netflix and @Roku, Do you know that I actively avoid watching anything on Netflix because it takes me an average of three tries to get any content to load properly without kicking me out of the app or freezing. And, yes, everything is up to date. FIX IT!

  • TyWisco Tyler (@TyWisco) reported

    Fix your roku app, you bankrupt poverty company @BallySports @BallySportWI

  • technobelle Aidan (@technobelle) reported

    Hey @hulu @Roku I bought the Hulu live TV plan and it won't work on my roku express. Through googling I've found no reason why, and it does work on my phone. This is stupid.

  • ashubert A Shubert (@ashubert) reported

    Latest problem with the Spectrum app on @Roku, the RW button is supposed to jump back to previous channel. No more. I think @Ask_Spectrum has interns and Jr High students handling app development.

  • itsslayqueen QAH 👑 (@itsslayqueen) reported

    Watching #Netflix on a #Roku is the worse thing ever. It keeps lagging, freezing, and restarting the tv. This makes me not even want to watch Netflix. And its not my internet no other app does this on my tv. Any one else having this exhausting issue 🫠 🫠🫠

  • Kellylovesbravo Kelly (@Kellylovesbravo) reported

    Does anyone use a Roku stick?? We have 4 cable boxes and only use 2 so we bought a $50 Roku stick to try it out but I'm not sure if it's worth it or not. Anyone? Like, what do you get for free? A lot of stuff? I appreciate any help!!

  • FlynnFaust Faust, Dog furry collector? (@FlynnFaust) reported

    Roku's Basilisk but instead of torture in a simulation it's Hatsune Miku being made real and then if you don't help furthering it you don't get to go to any of her concerts but if you help to make her real you get to go to a real Hatsune Miku concert for free.

  • AnthonyKuzma5 Anthony Kuzma (@AnthonyKuzma5) reported

    Having Trouble scan my code on my Roku Indoor camera se any help outthere about ready to Break it and send it back to Walmart people piece of Junk if you ask me.

  • dwfma Adrian Breeman (@dwfma) reported

    oh cool, the @FOXSports app for @Roku is kicking that error about exceeding account limits again. flashbacks to the World Cup!

  • GregtheNorth Northern Greg (@GregtheNorth) reported

    Why does the worst bank, from what we know now, need to be bailed out and deemed critical to the banking ecosystem? Roku has 1.9 billion in cash, they will be fine. So will Roblox. Everyone else is just overvalued startups sucking investors money. Silicon Valley Bank sucks.

  • GregtheNorth Northern Greg (@GregtheNorth) reported

    How much trouble is the banking industry in if, from what we know now, the worst bank has to be bailed out and deemed critical to the financial structure? Silicon Valley Bank should have been allowed to just fail. Roku had 1.9 billion in cash, they would have been fine.

  • unprotektedsex Twilight (@unprotektedsex) reported

    i will murder whoever is in control of the CBS app on Roku in front of their own children. dis **** don’t never work

  • KevinRHaggerty Kevin Haggerty (@KevinRHaggerty) reported

    Totally ridiculous that Hulu subscribers (And maybe others?) have to leave the March Madness Roku app to watch CBS games. You guys need to work this out before next year.

  • bdbsport Coach Middlescreen (@bdbsport) reported

    It is beyond idiotic that I can watch every #MarchMadness game on the MarchMadness Roku channel EXCEPT for the premier broadcasts airing on CBS. I have @DIRECTV and @paramountplus, but can’t get the games literally on CBS to play on my @Roku. Hands down worst streaming service.

  • winniethapoodle Sunshine 🌤 (@winniethapoodle) reported

    Anybody else with a roku tv having problems with their apps force closing??

  • adamkoford Adam (@adamkoford) reported

    I once asked my dad why my mom used a medical excuse to quit her job at Netflix and work for their competitor. All he said was “Itchy knee, son. She go Roku.”

  • jermainsmom 💋Petty Wright💋 (@jermainsmom) reported

    My Roku is not working wth?! I blame SVB…. It won’t connect to the internet 🥺

  • BGSULady BGSU Lady😷 (@BGSULady) reported

    I was so frustrated last night & mostly this morning. I tried to use Netflix & it kept saying my smart tv wasn't connected to the wi fi. I did everything. Honestly. The service man came over & worked on it for hours to no avail. We got it to work with a Roku device but 1/2

  • DCHRIST69372336 D|CHRISTOPHER♌️🐚🤳 (@DCHRIST69372336) reported

    I attempted to use the "watch now" function on my Roku and it did not work. I had already purchased certain episodes.

  • RF43311507 R.F😙 (@RF43311507) reported

    I'm having trouble streaming ATV+ on my Roku. The quality has really gone down in the last few months.

  • francisco_nelle 🦕NELLE FRANCISCO🤓 (@francisco_nelle) reported

    I've also tried rebooting the ATV and my TCL television, but the issue persists. In the TCL Roku Netflix app, I don't see any skipping or freezing.

  • luberttrumbert lib (@luberttrumbert) reported

    help i’m stuck in Roku City and the Uber app keeps saying there are no cars available.

  • chrisoIIey Chris OIIey (@chrisoIIey) reported from Juniata, Pennsylvania

    NBC Sports Roku app still being broken is ******* ridiculous

  • RSGillispie Rob (@RSGillispie) reported

    Gotta love the @MarchMadnessMBB app forcing me to watch the @CBS game on their broken @roku app so I have to delete it and reinstall it every time I want to watch

  • Stellio_Cantos_ Kittie The Kewchie Konnoisseur 💎 (@Stellio_Cantos_) reported

    Roku tvs are the worst tvs ever

  • drkarenwieland Karen M. Wieland, Ph.D 🌊🇺🇸💙🇺🇦🌊🇺🇸💙🇺🇦 (@drkarenwieland) reported

    I just had infuriatingly bad customer service call w/ @DIRECTV! Dad, who died last month, had been paying insane $264/month for television! In trying to help Mom change to more modest package, an obnoxious man refused to process change. Time to cancel & get Roku. #PriceGouging

  • LiteChild LiteChild3 (@LiteChild) reported

    After I get back from returning the Amazon item, I'm going to work on reformatting the hard drive & setting up my old computer so I can give it to BF. Also have a comcast thing that was free but I already have Roku, so going to get THAT set up too so I can have TV at BFs place.
