Re: Streaming Channels

This is the new "norm" to prevent people from streaming channels for free.  My sister has the amazon firestick but has only internet from her provider.  She does NOT have a cable subscription through her provider.  She streams anything she wants and it is free, as it used to be with Roku....

Re: Streaming Channels

If you don't use Hotwire for Cable, and only internet, then yes, you need to subscribe to Hotwire's cable to get their cable channels on Roku, or ANY OTHER STREAMING BOX. The services are controlled by the same companies across the board. If it doesn't work on your Roku, it most likely won't work on...

Re: Streaming Channels

Is the channel you've added a Cable provider channel, like Spectrum or Xfinity? If so, yes, you'll need to be a paying member for the content within that cable package to watch it on your Roku. This is how it's always been. If they fixed it for you before, I don't think that was the norm. If I don't...

Re: I will NOT be joining new ROKU Forum

Sorry, just tired of the unfounded paranoia that the internet has become..

People need to do their due diligence, and make sure they're right when they get up on their soap boxes. Too much speculation and fear over nothing these days.

Re: Sling on purple streaming stick

Has it ever worked on the purple stick? I feel like it may never have been officially supported. Very slow, old hardware.

I will not COMPLY

I will not have Roku doing even more SPYING on me, then selling data on me without my real consent (consent with a gun to your head).

I suggest others also refuse to comply.


Hilarious.

Re: unauthorized user keeps scrambling screen....

Are you sure it's saying unauthorized user? How many people are using your Netflix account? If there's only one that you know of, then I'd change your Netflix login as soon as possible, and I believe there's an option on the Netflix settings webpage to clear all current connections to your account t...

Re: Roku unveils a new streaming player lineup, plus Roku OS 9.2 launch

I feel over the past couple of years that Roku is just playing the shell game with its offerings.. Taking a feature away here, adding it there and calling it an exclusive.. taking away a along ports on one model but throwing in an enhanced remote.. And the only new features to the players are faster...

Re: Linking an additional Roku device

I haven't linked a Roku in awhile, but as if it's offering "suggestions" to new channels to add, I believe you can uncheck those suggested channels before finishing the wizard.

Have you moved the physical location of your DirecTV app to a different state or country or have you added a VPN to your network?

Re: Removing dead channels

Moving to it on the main screen and clicking on the asterisk * key isn't giving you the option to delete/remove the channel?
