  • 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.

    @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!!

    someone come fix my roku remote

  • jayphoward Jay Howard (@jayphoward) reported

    @BDavisAAS I switched from ATT to Spectrum for internet and love it. That said, the ESPN app for Roku is ass. Also tried it on an Xbox with similar results. I have no issues with Netflix, Amazon, etc.

  • scaringi72 Scaringi (@scaringi72) reported

    @Ask_Spectrum My Spectrum TV is not working on my Roku or on my IPad. It hasn’t worked for 2 weeks

  • Commando074 Just Call Me Jake (@Commando074) reported

    @bigredgator78 @Gogata1354 I bought a Roku 3920x for the older Samsung (2010 or so) flat screen in the bedroom. That ROKU is 4K UHD as well and works well too. No problems.

  • Doctor_Wattson Wattsferatu (@Doctor_Wattson) reported

    I just spent the last I don't even know how long trying to sign into the WWN app on Roku, with no luck. It always just says "login failed". It doesn't say if it's the username or password or anything, just "login failed".

  • JordanWold1 Jordan “the chunks” Wold (@JordanWold1) reported

    @AmazonHelp I’m using a Roku tv and it looks like the issue may be with the tv instead. but if you guys still want to refund this rental I wouldn’t mind :)

  • HeyTylerShutUp Tyler (@HeyTylerShutUp) reported

    @ScottHanson I WILL MISS NFL REDZONE THIS SEASON UNLESS @hulu ADDS IT TO THEIR LINEUP OR I CAN FIND A FRIEND THAT HAS NFL REDZONE AND WILL SHARE THEIR PROVIDER LOGIN WITH ME TO STREAM IT ON MY NFL APP ON ROKU

  • matthewneville Matthew Neville (@matthewneville) reported

    Conspiracy Theory: @nbc designed their Roku app to constantly crash so I’m forced to watch more ads.

  • simonwillo simon mcclelland-williamson 🏳️‍🌈 (@simonwillo) reported

    The NBC Sports Roku app is the worst app ever. It’s consistently awful. Every other Roku app I have works fine. This is on top of how terrible NBC Sports coverage of British football is. Please can this contract go elsewhere please.

  • KristinMillsM Kristin Mills (@KristinMillsM) reported

    Well it's been 2 days and my @Sling is still giving an error message. Uninstalled and still nothing. Reset the Roku and nothing. I just wanna watch TV on my day off.

  • dreamieorite yoohoo (@dreamieorite) reported

    LIKE,,,,the reincarnation just makes sense like this roku didnt know how to solve the problem without killing sozin so aangs biggest problem was finding a way to stop the war without killing ozai > aang was slow at learning the other elements while korra got them SO fast

  • BYENNHI your nail tech, brit (@BYENNHI) reported

    @baby_isprint I need you get off Twitter and Help me connecting my roku go the internet😍

  • ModelsByDay Eero (@ModelsByDay) reported

    @SonLifeNetwork Your broadcast on Roku in Canada is not working, also does not work on SBN app on Android. The only thing that works is the SBN radio (audio only) on Android app. been down for at least 2 days, Last time it worked on Wednesday this past week.

  • mushyoongi jenn's dinna ♡ i love jenn 🥺 (@mushyoongi) reported

    @Viki hello. episode 5 of “When the Devil Calls Your Name” is not working for me on my Roku device. it says “vifeo playbacl error -5malformed data”. if you could please look into this i would appreciate it very much.

  • MMAanalytics Paul Gift (@MMAanalytics) reported

    My #UFC241 main card feed cut out for about 10 seconds 3 times tonight. With reliable gigabit internet, I'm wondering if it was #Roku or #ESPN issue. Here's hoping 1 of their tech crews noticed something & is on it Not end of the world but makes me nervous for even bigger fights

  • renatiux99 Renatiux (@renatiux99) reported

    Great! Right now the #TCL @roku TV is not working. It is on an endless loop of showing the initial image of its brand and then crashes and starts all over again. Not even 2 years old and it is broken! I am returning it to #Costco tomorrow and will buy an @Apple TV and a screen

  • TupeloDylan Dan (@TupeloDylan) reported from Augusta, Maine

    @SoozieCuzie Don't know what you stream on but I just upgraded my Roku 3 I had for years to a newer one and all ESPN + issues vanished.

  • JulesAtlantis jules atlantis (@JulesAtlantis) reported

    @Spotify how do I activate my Hulu app on Roku if I have it bundled with Spotify. Your website’s help section has ZERO helpful information on this other than to say the bundle is not available for purchase which is no help at all.

  • JulesAtlantis jules atlantis (@JulesAtlantis) reported

    @hulu how do I activate my Hulu app on Roku if I have it bundled with Spotify. Your website’s help section has ZERO helpful information on this except that I need to go to Spotify, which also has zero helpful information btw.

  • Kbeets_gd gravedoggy (@Kbeets_gd) reported

    One of the worst things that happened was one time we got back from a date and the babysitter lost the roku remote

  • OHillYes Elizabeth Hill (@OHillYes) reported

    I bought my parents a Roku in hopes it will help them cancel their insanely expensive cable.

  • Drewinator1 Drew Owen (@Drewinator1) reported

    @Torrex_Win when i try to cast to my roku all i get is audio and my home screen not the video. please help

  • NightmareHolic NightmareHolic (@NightmareHolic) reported

    @AmazonHelp Happened again... The rep. said that others are experiencing problems on their Roku's as well. Will have to wait until tomorrow to see if Techs fix problem; if not, will try to create a totally different account and close my membership from one and transfer to the other.

  • SonOfPurple Dominic Small (@SonOfPurple) reported

    Well I was looking forward to watching and participating in #BBGN but due to the tech issues it appears it's off. Could delete YouTube from Roku as there's nothing else to watch, my brother having filled homescreen with his interests (Marvel, Pokemon et al) #sulk

  • bopat2007 Ruben Borrero (@bopat2007) reported

    @YouTubeTV Having a issue with your app on Roku devices. When I click on your app it goes to a dark screen. Try a second time and same thing. Finally after 3 times I had to reboot the Roku devices and it finally works. Had same problem a few weeks ago and it was corrected.

  • CherriesR Nola 'Covfefe' Darling💅🏾💋 (@CherriesR) reported

    @YoungSpikeLee I think it's only with the fire stick cause I have 0 problems on my roku

  • IoW_Skin IoW_Skin (@IoW_Skin) reported

    @kieekinghorn @itvfootball @ITV @ITV4 @FreeviewTV @itvhub @NOWTV @Roku That's odd... because I streamed it from @ITV4 on my @RokuUK device without any issue(s) whatsoever. Hope you managed to find a solution but, if not, maybe look into getting a cheap #Roku like the @Roku Express (only £24 from AO atm) because there are multiple apps with ITV4 on👍

  • Bill_Toohey Bill (@Bill_Toohey) reported

    @MLBTV @MLBFanSupport Please help be understand why I have to re log in every time I use your app on my Roku box

  • Dmb124 DB (@Dmb124) reported

    @VerizonSupport You have been zero help.....more incompetent than comcast. Horrible customer service. @suzyyogi save yourself the hassle, order internet only and get a roku.

  • fadeaccompli Fade (@fadeaccompli) reported

    Got the new Roku box set up in the living room. Unlike /some/ streaming devices, it can easily handle a login page. So many people live in apartment complexes! You'd think more would be able!

  • martalong1 marta long (@martalong1) reported

    @CGRindycar @NBCSportsGold Help! I can’t get the qualifying on nbcsportsgold! It doesn’t come up on my roku or iPhone

  • BlackQueenCurls 👸🏾Queen👸🏾 (@BlackQueenCurls) reported

    @jerryspringer is so terrible. 😩😂 #Roku Watching his show now.

  • NightmareHolic NightmareHolic (@NightmareHolic) reported

    @AmazonHelp The problem re-emerged: The Amazon Rep. had me do a factory reset on the Roku TV, reinstall prime video, and register the device again after deregistering it... Once again, It's back to streaming again; this is the third time, already, trying to fix the issue. Will see if fixed

  • RFWPod Radio Free Weser (@RFWPod) reported

    @zlebmada @FOXSoccer I can second this issue - it does appear to be working via Roku, however.

  • jax_on6 JackieB (@jax_on6) reported

    @Roku I bought and installed the Express in Tuesday and it's been nothing but trouble. Can't play #PrimeVideo because there isn't room, followed all the steps online to fix and still not working. Boxing it back up to return 2morrow

  • NightmareHolic NightmareHolic (@NightmareHolic) reported

    @AmazonHelp It seems after one season, the problem pops up. I will wait again. I unusually know after a couple of hours of watching on the Roku Smart TV. It's frustrating. It's like Prime doesn't want to remember my settings; hopefully, it will now.

  • iamsherriann sherriann (@iamsherriann) reported

    @RobertWatchesTV Same going on here. Just restarted the Roku thinking we had issues.

  • iamsherriann sherriann (@iamsherriann) reported

    @CeylaanBlue @Vorheez73 We have Roku and stream Hulu. Restarted the Roku thinking we had an issue. Ugh!

  • KellyMLaw2 Kelly Law (@KellyMLaw2) reported

    @aetv @Sling @hulu @Roku DID THE STREAMING ISSUE!!! #livepd

  • jonathancor0 jonathan (@jonathancor0) reported

    @Playbox_hd Maybe try fix for all Roku casting devices still to this very day can’t stream any movie to my Roku :(

  • multimason2000 AssassinIndra2099 (@multimason2000) reported

    @FunimationHelp subtitles are not working on the funimation now app on my roku tv and i tried everything and its not working

  • rvernon9 Randy Vernon (@rvernon9) reported

    @IA_Cub I ditched directv for YouTube tv. Takes a few seconds longer each time turning the tv on. Had to buy a Roku for a tv, but I’m saving $80/month. Took a few days to get used to which buttons on remote to use. Now... no problems. And no satellite outages.

  • ashby_kellie Kellie Ashby (@ashby_kellie) reported

    @HighspotsWN @pivotshare Still not working on Roku or computer won't load 😞
