  • AU_Double07 AUDouble07 🦚 🐅🦅 (@AU_Double07) reported

    I have Roku’s and 2 Apple TV’s at home and I swear that Apple TV’s buffer signal on the same app 10x more than the Roku. It’s maddening. About to toss the Apple TV out the window.

  • EvanEckart Evan Eckart (@EvanEckart) reported

    @Sling I watch sling tv on a Roku express in my basement and lately it freezes on local channels and the app has to be closed. No other apps affected. Have already tried restarting Roku and reinstalling app. Still freezes! Can’t watch football! Help!

  • acampbellsports Alex Campbell (@acampbellsports) reported

    At some point @paramountplus is going to have to fix this issue where on @Roku /Smart TVs their Live TV streams don't have a 10 second video lag

  • patrickmoore6 Patrick Moore (@patrickmoore6) reported

    @NFLonCBS can you fix your Roku app so I can watch the game

  • JenN52640335 Jen N. (@JenN52640335) reported

    @jitka I used to have an Air as a work computer, but I switched companies and have a Surface now. I mostly just use my iPhone as my personal computer. I don’t really need a computer for movies or music because I have a Roku on my TV and listen to radio or the Echo Dot.

  • Matrraka matrraka (@Matrraka) reported

    @Roku Hey, do I have to return my new tv because you don’t have @Twitch on it??? Help

  • vladolic Vlad Olic (@vladolic) reported from Arlington, Virginia

    Hey @beIN @beINSPORTS_EN why do you interrupt AFCON broadcasts with random goal videos? It's the most insane amateur-hour thing I've ever seen. Also, the Roku app doesn't work - logged in but live broadcasts won't play. #TotalEnergiesAFCON2021 #AFCON2021

  • Charlito2x III/XI/MMI 🌬💦🍃 (@Charlito2x) reported

    @NFL @TomBrady “NFL App” on my Roku won’t load the game. Error Code 403, anyone else having this problem? How can I watch the game?

  • bigdwloz Donovan.morgan (@bigdwloz) reported

    @CrashSheridan Yeah but the Air BnB doesn’t have basic cable. Just a Roku TV. My Roku with the Xfinity app won’t work unless I’m home.

  • a_mcclary Daniel McClary (@a_mcclary) reported

    @Crass_S @woouisance My satalile is already mess up ( got Roku too) and I'm off work tomorrow anyway. So I'm not a huge fan of this.

  • plimitone Phil Limitone (@plimitone) reported

    @OptimumHelp I just read this again and I am not sure I follow that. If I am using Roku then why would I need a cable box? The apps I am using are not on the cable box. I don't need my ID/password to sign in to a cable box. Is there a contractual requirement that I have a cable box?

  • NickBagSZN Nick 💜💛 (@NickBagSZN) reported

    @Newfazegregpaul I'm using a Roku because the tv remote doesn't work

  • terrazu1 terrazu (@terrazu1) reported

    @FOXSports Why does your 4k sports stream on Roku have a line of video noise at the bottom of the screen? The Google TV stream doesn't. Please fix the Roku app. Thx.

  • srolandmarshall Sam Marshall (@srolandmarshall) reported

    Another sporting event, another @FOXSports 4K disgrace. Your 4K feed does not work on Roku TV.

  • Awktain7562 Awktain (@Awktain7562) reported

    I hate China crap, half of it doesn't work because it's mass produced. Especially electronics. The other half only works sometimes,( @roku, @arducam) these manufacturers don't know how to make quality products that actually work. Where's their pride.

  • ATrancucci Anthony Trancucci (@ATrancucci) reported

    @kv_neodantes @Funimation Same. I also have a new Roku 4k stick in a different TV and i have issues with that ones funimation app too. However I noticed this is just the roku app version. There's also an entire discussion about this on reddit.

  • HLepor HLepor (@HLepor) reported

    @OphirGottlieb I sure hope growth stocks get a reprieve, but Iwm and Rty look like it’s going down. I’m hanging on but look at Roku - it looks terrible

  • clcpolevaulter Adam Brunner (@clcpolevaulter) reported

    I wish the @disneyplus @Roku app had a better login flow. It uses a legacy password flow instead of the more common one time token exchange. This encourages weak passwords. You ought to do better and support token exchange instead. Reference any other Roku app.

  • ESPNPlusHelp ESPN+ Help (@ESPNPlusHelp) reported

    @CorbinWilliams_ Hey! Thanks for reaching out to us. We apologize for the inconvenience. In order to help us troubleshoot, can you please tell us, on which device are you experiencing this issue? (iPhone, Android device, Website, Roku, Firestick)

  • ExpertlyEnisha The Babe (@ExpertlyEnisha) reported

    @HBOMaxHelp Tried it on the phone app, subtitles work fine. Tried it on 2 different Roku smart TVs, both TVs had the subtitle issue. Pretty sure there’s a glitch with the HBOmax Roku app! Will work at first, then the first commercial comes on and it shuts off the subtitles after that.

  • RealMWRoberts Objective Reality At All Cost. (@RealMWRoberts) reported

    @HBOMaxHelp If I pause for more than 2 minutes the screen goes black and I have to exit out to the Roku Home Screen. I spoke to Roku, and tried other services like Netflix, and this doesn’t happen. It only happens on HBOMax. It’s just one problem after the other with HBOMax. For $15 a month.

  • meauxkneek 2:14 (@meauxkneek) reported

    Im so sick of misplacing my Roku remote & Idky my app dw work on my phone

  • PaulistaBatist3 Paulista Batista (@PaulistaBatist3) reported

    DirecTV made a really stupid mistake banning one america network. Get roku, and I do not work for them or have stock.

  • madbofo Jackson Action (@madbofo) reported

    @NoContextClips_ The back of these Roku remotes are the absolute worst. The battery door never stays on

  • gingerman2012 King Koda🇮🇪👑 (@gingerman2012) reported

    Dropped my roku TV remote in water and the brain of the remote decides to not work anymore yet how come when I submerge myself in water my brain decides to actually work or something and stops me from trying to make myself not working anymore 🙄 what's the logic here? 🤔

  • M8keMel Mel Leigh (@M8keMel) reported

    @tweethue Sorry I get what your saying. I’m running into an issue where either my Xbox or Roku work. But not when they are both connected at the same time

  • M1keDallas Michael Migdalis (@M1keDallas) reported

    @bertkreischer Include a working TV in your rider, it is not an unreasonable request. Or take a Roku unit on tour with you, that’s what I do. Better a Roku than an Apple TV because when you inevitably forget it you’re only out about $25, then worst case, you can cast from your phone to the Roku

  • M8keMel Mel Leigh (@M8keMel) reported

    @tweethue The light is now white and holding steady. I think the issue is I was attempting to use a usb to hdmi adapter. Because both my external Roku and Xbox one have one HDMI port. One last question, do you know if using a splitter from the hdmi ports would work instead of the adapter?
