  • jasonbyrne Jason Byrne (@jasonbyrne) reported from Winter Springs, Florida

    @leftystrat5 I know that the team is investigating and working on a fix. Holidays are likely going to delay that fix though. It apparently has something to do with a new Roku OS update, but we don't know specifically what they did to break it.

  • thepaintedman thepaintedman claus (@thepaintedman) reported

    @filmadelphia Your call, but my experiences have lead me to keep my number of channels low. I’m a ROKU brand loyalist for a decade or so now, but the lack of enough on board memory is an issue I’ve noticed, especially with certain models. Maybe Shudder has better suggestions.

  • lavelyshai Shai ☕ ( (@lavelyshai) reported

    Not even a day after adding @hbomax to my @Roku I'm already seeing problems. Each time I attempt to watch something, it takes me back to the "who's watching" screen. Kinda need this to be fixed before WW.

  • Stefan__13 Stefan (@Stefan__13) reported

    @durenthal @DAZN_CA Would also love to know if you got a response beyond standard customer service boilerplate. Still happening for me too on @DAZN_CA Roku app and annoying trying to watch games with frequent buffer timeouts.

  • Maff112 Maff11 (@Maff112) reported

    @23Nate @Stan_And_Ollie I actually seen what gonna be on over there.and it's awful.way worse than ever seen.our xmas tv is pretty decent compared to yours.make more of a effort and I've got plenty streaming channels too.and finally hbo max to roku and my mates give me his info so got tons watch.

  • censorsaredumb Noba Dee (@censorsaredumb) reported

    @hulu_support why is hulu bugging out it won't work on roku or playstation and it's not my internet because youtube works on playstation

  • Randy745Randy Randy Duncan (@Randy745Randy) reported

    @rivercountrysam I was wondering how that was going to work today. I have the NFL Network on my Roku TV, was going to renew my subscription with Sling so I can watch the game this afternoon, since Xfinity doesn't offer it. Depending on how the game goes do you speak to each other after?

  • SecretCapital_ Secret Capital (@SecretCapital_) reported

    I've begun listening to pumpers on Twitter. It takes conviction to talk your book on a non-illiquid idea. They're mostly trying to help out... recall early bitcoin, xpel, roku bulls

  • leftystrat5 leftystrat5 (@leftystrat5) reported

    Anyone else having problems with @flosports @Roku app? All the prerecorded content on @FloWrestling is really glitchy. Live stream and 24/7 channel are fine. Watching on my iPhone is fine. Everything else is unwatchable.

  • mddog450 brandon ♌️ (@mddog450) reported

    Anyone having issues with @verizonfios streaming fox sports in 4k on @Roku ?

  • Marshall2004 Jarrett D. Gerlach (@Marshall2004) reported

    Hey @DAZNBoxing I beg you to fix your app on @Roku

  • dawsonscasey merry alyssmas ❄️ (@dawsonscasey) reported

    i get that hbo max literally just released on roku so there’s bound to be problems but holy hell this app is so slow and will not stop crashing

  • MiloHera Milo Cortez Montalvo (@MiloHera) reported

    @WaltDisneyCo @RobertIger How awful. I did not know that warner **** already entered Roku. Now we can say that the competition between Disney plus, Netflix and Hbo max, officially begins. You will have to fight hard to be the first place.

  • Agent0071 Scott Richards (@Agent0071) reported

    @wirecutter @TCL_USA Great picture, horrible reliability. A little over a year in, barely used, and my Roku TV Series 6 screen seems to be dead. Seems to be a common problem if you look at sites like if I it

  • lerajie666 damien almazan (@lerajie666) reported

    @HBOMaxHelp can't watch hbo max on roku. Keeps sending me back to main menu. Any help? Already restarted and uninatalled app.

  • ShortyKatyK Katie (@ShortyKatyK) reported

    Picked up a Roku for my mom/dad. Really thought about an apple tv but the remote would never work for them. Either way at least they will be ditching there old firestick.

  • monkeyseez MonkeySeez (@monkeyseez) reported

    @HBOMaxHelp can someone HELP with HBO Max on ROKU???? Roku isn’t responding to the issue. They said to contact you. H. E. L. P. !!!

  • mediocrehomo mediocre homo (@mediocrehomo) reported

    @Roku i was wrong you only have the first 2 seasons. plz give me the rest. i can't keep watching the garbage quality options online

  • HARRY38263836 HARRY (@HARRY38263836) reported

    @iHeartRadio @Roku I dont know what one of yours fault it is but fix the app the fact that it auto stops after 2 or 3 hours even on a brand new roku device is bad

  • monkeyseez MonkeySeez (@monkeyseez) reported

    @Roku @hbomax ROKU, HBO MAX is not working! If I have to read about uninstalling reinstalling one more time, I’m going to scream. Many people have tried dozens of times. Get it together. Clearly your non customer service is not helpful !

  • monkeyseez MonkeySeez (@monkeyseez) reported

    @DonnaSchulman1 @RokuSupport Same problem here!! Clearly ROKU can care less. Roku said to reach out to HBO MAX, it’s ROKU that needs to figure this out!

  • brettglass Brett Glass - WY7BG (@brettglass) reported

    As an ISP, I have to marvel at the stupidity of app and id-#IoT gadget designers. So far, I've diagnosed problems experienced by two owners who have Roku video devices. They ping a dozen or more hosts, and assume that the shortest round trip time means the best server. Wrong!

  • VimeoStaff VimeoStaff (@VimeoStaff) reported

    @boazhsan We’re aware of an issue preventing users from accessing the Vimeo app on Roku devices at this time. Our developers are investigating this issue; we don't have an ETA for a fix and apologize for any inconvenience in the meantime.

  • ZeroAmiable Timothy Cerveny (@ZeroAmiable) reported

    @hulu_support how long before you send an update to stop skipping the endings of EVERY SHOW??!! Been happening for months on my roku systems.. Yet I pay you for **** service... Get a level/severity 1 in to hot fix this ****

  • Agent0071 Scott Richards (@Agent0071) reported

    @THX @TCL_USA Very disappointed with your TV's reliability on my 6 series. A little over a year in, barely used, and my Roku TV screen seems to be dead. Sound but white or black screen. Seems to be all too common a problem if you search Ifix it and other sites. Definitely wouldn’t recommend.

  • JoshHillinger Josh Hillinger (@JoshHillinger) reported

    @hulu_support fyi, this only seems to be an issue with Hulu’s interface on @Roku

  • jer2239 Jerry Springer (@jer2239) reported

    @hbomax @roku why does the HBO max app start then crash on Roku with OS 9.4?

  • sebtalksalot Sebastian (@sebtalksalot) reported


  • os2woods Chris Woods (@os2woods) reported

    @HBO What a ripe off. My folks have tried getting HBO Max for months. Nothing works. 1st they said if we had DirecTV and HBO we would have all the same, wrong. Then use login, wrong. Then available Roku, wrong. Don't be fooled, thieves.
