Re: CBS All Access, Changing Live TV station

I too live in the Los Angeles area and have CBS All Access since February.  As far as I can tell, We're limited to KCBS.  For me, that's fine as I want to view the local channel 2 for local news and programming of interest-like local sports for my sports orientated friends.  Do try the other CBS app...

Re: activation fraud

“.......Please let me know what I should do to help make sure this nonsense ends, not just for my sake, but for others. Do I/we need to get a more secure Roku device? Will you keep your end of that sacred expectation that you value your customers' privacy enough to keep them informed of any sig...

Re: Purchasing for family member in nursing home

Tsk, tsk, Resorting to name calling now?  Well, I guess I have to be more open about exactly where my Roku is being used then and now.  It will be a bit long reply this time but will settle some major beefs I have with my Roku.   Perhaps a bit of clarification is warranted here.  I don’t live in a ...

Re: Purchasing for family member in nursing home

Your credit card information is not stored on your Roku:  your credit card information is stored in the cloud, linked to your Roku account, but not on the device itself. By stealing your Roku, someone could not steal your credit card info. Think about it. Have you ever entered your credit card info...

Re: Purchasing for family member in nursing home

Iona, what personal information is "stored" on a Roku? You mean, access to Netflix, and Hulu? Oh no! There's nothing stored on a Roku other than access to other stuff and your email address. jeffrok,  I know you have at least one credit card to your name.  How do I know this?  You are onl...

Re: Purchasing for family member in nursing home

I bought a Streaming Stick for my own mother.  Big waste of money.  She had absolutely no interest in it.  All she wanted was 24/7 Over-The-Air Trash TV of junk content local channels.  While my own mother lives in her own home, I would be very cautious of putting anything of value in her room if sh...

Re: Roku taking up too much data

This might be an old thread, but the problem for Roku owners is still the same.  As much as I use and like my multiple Roku(s), I still have a meager limited fixed capped data plan & matching pension funded income.  Meaning that there is no room for error-one of which is going over my data limit...

Re: Using Roku at hospitality business

I prefer to bring my own device, hook it up myself, and not deal with no one else except for Roku or the app in question itself that I'm using.  The whole idea is to avoid middlemen as much as possible.  Especially if I have questions about their true motives on using my sensitive information should...

Re: Roku vs Chromecast

I have several Roku's, a couple Fire TV's, and a Chromecast. All three have their advantages. My favorite is Roku as there are so many services. The Fire TV units have browsers, so if a channel app is not available you can view it from a browser. There are a lot of stuff that streams on the interne...
