Re: Comparing Hulu Live and Sling TV

Hulu live is an add-on to existing account and app. It must be added via website account. It is $40 in addition to your current account of $8 or $12, and any other addons. It is only available on devices that have the new, horrible interface. I'm not going to pay $40 for ad-supported TV to check ho...

Comparing Hulu Live and Sling TV

I have two Roku's on two home TVs, and have been a Sling TV subscriber for ~two years.  I've been happy with the options, but I miss live, local news and programming.   Hulu Live has come to Indianapolis (about 50 miles north of me).  I cannot access OTA channels, even with an antenna, due to distan...

Re: Hulu Live TV- Guess What?

I live far enough away from Indianapolis that I cannot access the big networks - NBC, CBS, ABC and FOX. I have two Rokus in my home, and currently subscribe to Sling TV, Netflix and Amazon Prime.  My question with Hulu Live TV is - would I get my local stations through it?  If I could get Indianapol...

Re: Why Does Youtube Crash the Roku 2 EVERY TIME?

Same issues with my 2XS and You Tube making it just about worthless at least for YT.  I have a 2015 2 and You Tube works although since they puts ads on just about every video now I do occasionally get freeze ups and I have to back out to the main menu. I'll keep the XS for the connectivity to olde...

Re: Constantly having to reactivate/sign in on YouTube

I am having an issues with YouTube ads, somewhat similar to the OP When I watch YouTube on my Roku stick, I will set up several videos to play one after the other. If there is a YouTube ad, it "locks up" the play - it will show 0:01 on the screen, like the ad isn't quite done, but the next...

Re: Buffering/Delays with Sling on Roku

I have been having issues tonight with my Sling channel playing any video at all on my Roku. The channel also buffers from time to time...well, at least daily. I have found though that if you open the Sling app and go into settings>connection and lower it to high or medium, that tends to help out q...

Buffering/Delays with Sling on Roku

While using my Roku Stick, I have found that I seem to have buffering issues with video - primarily while using Sling TV.  Last night it took ~20 minutes for my Roku to finally "catch" TBS on Sling TV - and even then I had issues where the picture would pixelate and sound distort.  I tried...

Does anyone know if I can stream the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade through my Roku? Or, is it available to watch online somewhere?

Thank you!

Re: Holiday 2015 Programming

I live ~60 miles from Indianapolis, where my nearest affiliates broadcast from. I have tried three different antennas, and cannot get a clear signal from NBC, ABC, CBS or FOX. So, as much as love my Roku, I don't get much local coverage. And, none of those stations broadcast on Roku for news. I appr...

Re: Roku 2 - Sling TV - TBS Not Connecting

At the moment... Resolved! The woman on the other end of the phone did a reset, and had me reset my Roku time zone. She said they have experienced some issues with Roku clocks locking up and needing a reset to allow channels to come through.

Re: Roku 2 - Sling TV - TBS Not Connecting

You mentioned uninstalling and reinstalling. Did you reboot in between the uninstallation and reinstallation? That's critical to ensure that it is a full removal and reinstallation. I don't recall... I followed the twitter instructions they sent me. If the instructions didn't say to reboot in-betwe...

Re: Roku 2 - Sling TV - TBS Not Connecting

You didn't say which Roku 2 (model 2720 or model 4210). I have neither, so I can't by saying "it works on my Roku 2" or "it doesn't work on my Roku 2." It does work on my Roku 3, which is a very similar box to the model 4210 Roku 2. It really shouldn't make a difference, but if ...

Roku 2 - Sling TV - TBS Not Connecting

I have two Roku's - a "stick" in my living room, and a Roku 2 in my bedroom. I use Sling TV regularly. However, when watching in the bedroom, I repeatedly have trouble getting TBS to come up on Sling. When I scroll to the station, it gives me some random show that is not currently airing (...
