Re: The problem about ads

Really this thread should be taken and E-mailed to those channels & the Ad companies the channels use.  The more you let them know the more they will try to improve the experience. They want to provide a quality experience.  In fact I think the ads are actually not as bad as they were.... I assu...

Re: Please Remove Ads from Roku TV

I really don't see them doing this. Also I'd say this is actually the good kind of ads. It's not really distracting and usually offers content it thinks you'd like. 

Some other Smart TVs also have ads or deeper data mining.....

Gotta pay their engineers to work on software updates somehow.

Re: Cannot re-subscribe to Starz

For the Streaming only option. Unless they updated there site.... (Last time I signed up was in October or September....) You could only sign up through the Roku app or Android Play Store or Apple iOS store.... The Starz site had no option for Streaming only. Unless they finally added it.... I had o...

Re: Ad,Ad,Ad,Ads everywhere.......now my cell phone [dont read if you dont want to hear me bitch]

Google Maps works great for getting numbers. Or Google's Voice search.... Unless you don't have a smart phone then I'm sorry. 411 has to pay the bills somehow.... Maybe there exists an SMS 411? Not sure.... I usually just press the Mic on my phone (for Google voice search) and say number for *busine...

Re: My monthly bill for streaming media bill iis about $40

You vote with your wallet and you make the choice on what content to watch. Think there is too many ads on a free channel. Write and let the company know. Ask others to join the cause... Get a Library card.... They have ad-free content for free.... Still more ads on OTA / Cable / Satellite TV.  It's...

Re: My monthly bill for streaming media bill iis about $40

Then do it. If it's that cheap and you enjoy it better then there is no sense is making yourself suffer. It's your money and your entertainment.  Do whatever makes ya happy.  I'll take some ads if the content is still uncut. I will happily pay for ad free premium content too. That's just me. To each...

This would be easily solved if Roku incorporated 50Hz and 60Hz - flour, even the Apple TV manages this.

Even all the Chromecast models have a 50hz option.

What were the fees and taxes of your Dish service compared to now? You're not factoring those in at all. Like the hardware rental fees, broadcast fees and so forth. For your Internet. do you own a Modem or rent a modem? Buy a modem for additional savings. Just pay for Internet to avoid added broadc...

No one posted about it here. Usually free stuff gets a thread. :P

Quality could be the best of the free services thus far.
