Re: Roku continues to support the NRA

The NRA TV channel wouldn't exist if companies like Roku didn't provide a platform. So Roku is responsible for what is portrayed in the channel. https://thinkprogress.org/nra-tv-channel-dabd4427e31a/ 'In a statement on Monday, Roku spokesperson Tricia Mifsud said the company isn’t promoting NRATV or...

Re: Roku continues to support the NRA

I think they have a thing against hate speech. KKK, BLM, and several others would fall into that. NRA’s defense of the Constitution is not. Neither is the ACLU’s. You haven't seen this channel, have you? Or Dana Loesch? Talk about hate speech...the lies, the anger, the vile behavior...this isn't ab...

Re: Roku continues to support the NRA

Just as an FYI for future reference, freedom of speech has to do with being able to speak and hold some viewpoints publicly and the government doesn't interfere. Companies can restrict who they do business with, and the speech that is hosted on the devices they manufacture. One wonders: would Roku a...

Re: New Christmas Winter Theme

I also wanted to note how much I like the Christmas theme. I like the fact that it varies, that it respects Roku's purple color, but still captures Christmas and winter.

It would be nice to keep these themes longer.

Re: Netflix kicks me out on roku tv

Supposedly the 8.0 update was going to fix the Netflix problem on TCL Roku TVs. Well, no. I now access Netflix on an Amazon Fire TV attachment on the Roku TV, because Netflix just does not work without problems on these TVs. I wouldn't recommend these TVs now, not if you want Netflix. Did you get 8...

Re: Netflix app closing repeatedly (new issues)

It's a bug in 7.7.  Uninstalling does nothing more to help the issue than just restarting.  Supposedly 8.0 will fix it on the TVs.  Supposedly.  It was also supposedly going to be rolling out to TVs beginning in November.  Supposedly. Hope so. I have a Amazon Fire TV attached to the Roku TV. When I...

Anyone else dead in the water with Hulu on Roku?

It brings up the login page, I activate it, and it never refreshes. Of course, Hulu hasn't any support for customers, at all.  Am I the only one who can't access Hulu on Roku?  I swear, it's not worth the money anymore.  Update: Now I can, after I restarted my Roku.  Seriously, Roku, you need to wor...

Re: Netflix app closing repeatedly

I guess I'm glad to see I'm not the only one that's having a horrid time with Netflix on Roku TV. 

The channel is almost unusable now. It freezes, kicks me out, and literally causes the TV to shut off.

Re: Netflix app closing repeatedly

My TCL Roku TV has this problem, and it's to the point where I can't watch Netflix. I just tried to watch a movie six times, and each time, I was kicked out.

Re: Hulu Live is now available on Roku

I seem to be one of the few that doesn't mind the new interface. I'm more concerned about the extreme buffering issues, and playback issues.  I do like the DVR functionality, and it's superior to Sling's interface.  If you do a system update with your Roku, if your device is supported, it should upd...

Re: Hulu Live is now available on Roku

When I beta tested the Roku installation, I found that waiting a couple of seconds and then hitting the reload link establishes the connection.  Yeah, the images and the other issues are probably quirks from the service being overloaded. I suspect most Roku users who are Hulu subscribers were trying...

Hulu Live is now available on Roku

Didn't see this on the front page, but Hulu just rolled out the new interface/Live for most Roku devices.

https://help.hulu.com/en-us/supported-roku

Expect buffering issues, at least for a time.
