  • Josh_BKNY This is (@Josh_BKNY) reported

    Roku has the worst AI voice imaginable.

  • TheRickDelSanto Rick Del Santo (@TheRickDelSanto) reported

    Is there an issue with the live feed for @indiewrestling for @roku? Ended up streaming through my phone...

  • NoEmmeG A Neccessary Evil (@NoEmmeG) reported

    chile im high af i done threw my roku remote in the washer on hot w extra bleach. and the **** still work

  • ljmdmorris Mike&LJ (@ljmdmorris) reported

    @jeremynewberger I can't stand that my samsung tv needs the remote to switch inputs. It creates all kinds of issues when the kids want to use the @Xbox and we can't find the remote. If only the xbox would make the tv switch like the appletv and the roku.

  • thePipester Dave as a Service (@thePipester) reported

    Dear @netflix and @Roku... Maybe don't put the banner up of @AHSFX with the clowns as a screen saver. I have serious issues with clowns. Watch "IT" at way too young an age, never recovered. Thanks.

  • grunstable Greg Grunst (@grunstable) reported

    @RokuSupport using roku3. Roku channel update and now I don't see the live TV, or the previous section that allowed you to continue watching something. Am I missing something. The update is not user friendly. Help.

  • lex09_ peach.. (@lex09_) reported

    Y’all Roku Tv’s work on the school WiFi? #FVSU 👀👀

  • bdp514am bobby parnell (@bdp514am) reported

    @Alyse_On_Life @Roku @Spotify the express is good, the remote is somewhat unreliable, honestly except for the stick all roku's suffer from that. And it's tiny size makes it easy to get knocked around (you're probably more organized and neater than I am so not an issue for you)

  • TomSchoenhard Tomb Boneyard (@TomSchoenhard) reported

    Quibi couldn't make short form content work on a mobile platform. By keeping @hbomax off Roku and Amazon, @HBOMaxPR is betting it can make long form content work on a mobile platform. Pretty dumb.

  • BobooTobian I was saying Bobooooo 🎃 (@BobooTobian) reported

    Swapped out the cable box in the bedroom for a roku stick to start a phased (3 day) move to cut cable. That room has the worst wifi in the house and it appears to work okay.

  • saucissonsec Liddle Lamzy Dive Bar (@saucissonsec) reported

    @javagrendel Yeah at this point its between Roku and Chromecast. I'm leaning towards Roku so I don't have to deal with the laptop thing but being able to cast things when I do want to is tempting. How does sound work with casting to the TV?

  • nickv33zy nick 🗯 (@nickv33zy) reported

    @thisishowiwin It sucked but I woulda watched it so much more if there was an app to watch on your Roku/Console/Smart TV. Terrible execution

  • fighthaskins the great o-chris (@fighthaskins) reported

    Love hbo max, the streaming service with a broken mobile app and no roku app

  • Lainey24467366 Deplorable Patriot Lainey (@Lainey24467366) reported

    Can someone please help me out? Can't get Utube on Roku anymore.

  • sriharift9 𝐒𝐫𝐢𝐡𝐚𝐫𝐢 (@sriharift9) reported

    @Luiz_Fernando_J It'll be bad. Problem between Roku and Amazon firestick will hurt the results.

  • Jdawg_213 Broken (@Jdawg_213) reported

    @MLBNetwork @Plesac19 I can’t watch it because I have roku tv and your app is not working

  • ShelbyGrosch Shelby Grosch (@ShelbyGrosch) reported

    @SacnessEverdeen No, it was awful. I don't think now is the time to take on Netflix, Hulu, HBO Now, Apple TV, Roku, Peacock, YouTube TV, Fubu, Sling, Amazon, who am I missing here? lol

  • mcduff_daniel Daniel McDuff (@mcduff_daniel) reported

    @RaguJJ @CutieStraw Oh for sure yeah it's an issue if you used xbox for watching stuff on it. I used to use my old roommates roku and I'm almost positive you are right about an app for it

  • TruthSeeker2332 BORN4THIS (@TruthSeeker2332) reported

    Anyone else having issues with YouTube? I can’t get it to play anything on Roku

  • DShepherd45 DShepherd45 (@DShepherd45) reported

    @DesertAZQ Yeah. I got that app downloaded on both the kindle and roku. I've used it before, It's just not working for dlive...

  • rebyj Rebecca (@rebyj) reported

    @THR you could only get it on phone app. Most people over what? 25? watch tv. We couldn't get the app on our LG or roku when we looked for it. I wanted to see the Reno911 reboot! It's a shame. @hbomax has the same problem. We can't access it through any of our home devices.

  • B_Effin_G Suge Night Shyamalan ➐ (@B_Effin_G) reported

    I think Quibi should rebrand as an exclusive Pluto/Roku channel, but no subscription. There's potential for 10-minute programming. Adult Swim's made it work for almost 20 years.

  • SourdeathSam Sourdeath Sam (@SourdeathSam) reported

    @WSJ I’m putting Quibi’s head on a pike and walking to AT&T HQ to remind HBOMax how terrible an idea it is to not have their app on Roku and FireTV. Y’all need anything while I’m out?

  • kayfabeal Al (Alicia) (@kayfabeal) reported

    I spilled my entire coffee on my roku remote and now I'm scared it's never gonna work again,I see how thos day is going

  • PaZoZo ZoZo PaZoZo (@PaZoZo) reported

    @TSA_Toxxi Yikes. I had a similar problem getting through when I cancelled DirecTV and went straight for Roku/Xbox for all my streaming...They kept trying to sell me crap even after I kept saying "No. *******. Thank. You."

  • GoldfishFibers Wesen (@GoldfishFibers) reported

    Hello @hulu_support - when my DSL goes down and I tether to my phone, your Roku app demands I change home location to watch but limits how many times I can do that. Is there some way to fix this? Paying for your service isn’t great when I’m getting geoblocked.

  • ericlamb89 Eric Lamb (@ericlamb89) reported

    @AmazonHelp Just as a heads up, I talked to 3 different support agents. The issue is *not* resolved but the last agent confirmed there is an open ticket for an "outage" with firetv + spotify. I have no idea if this will be resolved any time soon so just switching to Roku.

  • LorrieCancilli1 Lorrie (@LorrieCancilli1) reported

    @Txreilly Hello Tx. Saw post by you re Roku remote problems. Can you tell me how to get my Roku Home Screen back? Internet prob.Verizon FiOS recently gave 5G power to everyone. Something to do with it? A user on Roku site said “Do not reboot your router.” So far I didn’t. Thanks.

  • Fussball_eh Jon Eden (@Fussball_eh) reported

    @24thminute @DAZN_CA I watched this game on demand on internal roku device and it was fine for me, so does not appear to be a global problem.
