Watch Free Flix channel in search result

I was using the Roku search looking for a movie called Aftershock.  A film about the earthquake in Tangshan China in 1976 (a very good film BTW).  Three results came up,  Amazon and Play Store at $2.99 each, and Watch Free Flix for free.  Intrigued by the free offer, I clicked on Watch Free Flix, in...

Re: Roku Offering Its Own Ad-Supported TV/Movie Channel

Just looking at the screen shot they show and it looks like the same old stuff shown on all the free channels. Some of it does look similar.  The key may be in how they handle the commercials.  The hands on review posted above says they don't show ads at the beginning.  Movies start right in.  And ...

Re: Roku Offering Its Own Ad-Supported TV/Movie Channel

Current generation Roku devices?  So that's why its not in my Roku 3 channel store.   I guess they won't be getting any ad views from me. EDIT:  Found out that any Roku built after July 2011 will be able to play the channel.  So I will eventually be able to try it when they finish the roll out.   Th...

Re: Netflix not included in search results - Roku 3, Software 7.7.0 build 4108-07

I just updated yesterday to 7.7.0  build 4108-04, which is what was offered for my Roku 3 (4200).   Netflix comes up in the search results on Zootopia for me.  Your Roku 3 is a newer model which probably explains the different build # suffix (07 instead of 04).   It's a very odd bug you have there, ...

losing audio

     Been having this problem for about two weeks now.  Happens so far with Netflix TV shows only.  Don't recall it happening with movies.  The loss of audio happens at the end of each episode at the exact moment when Netflix decides to switch the credits from full screen to that tiny window in the ...

Re: "HDCP unauthorised.Content Disabled" Please HELP

Since your HDCP error comes and goes it is almost 100% certain to be a connection integrity issue.  This is why a reset or unplug/re-plug might make it go away, at least temporarily.  Its a frustrating problem and cannot always easily be solved, especially if the issue is a port in your TV. A solid ...

Re: The problem about ads

Almost nothing is free - either you pay with money (subscriptions), or you pay with your time (commercials).  Ahh....if only that either/or situation were true, I might have considered *not* cutting the cord.   It was the idea that I was paying the TV networks (the cable companies are just collecti...

Re: "My Feed" = Not Working

More objective proof that My Feed is in dire need of some technical forensics. Agreed. I've stumbled on a workaround. If you search for an item that is already in your feed , and then select it, the option to "unfollow" will show up in the list of currently available streaming options. Ma...

Re: Feature Requests - Second Quarter 2017

Return "My Feed" to old model that showed both current and previous seasons of shows. Current model that only shows new episodes and any changes to actors, etc. has made keeping track of and accessing these shows over multiple seasons very cumbersome and the excuse that the old model was ...

Re: "My Feed" = Not Working

I just manually updated my Roku TV with 7.6 and now the "My feed" functionality has been "UPDATED" also. I won't be home to check this for myself for a few more hours -- does this update it to the previous functionality? As you have no doubt figured out by now - no, unfortunatel...

Re: "My Feed" = Not Working

I'll jump on board with this. I used My Feeds to follow my favorite shows, a number of which had previous seasons on Netflix or other services I subscribe to. I could use the My Feed to easily get to the previous seasons on Netflix as it showed up that way (current season as 2016- and previous seas...

Re: Third Party Ads on Roku

They can disguise it as a "Download Free Theme" all they want.   A line has been crossed. Roku has now become an advertising venue instead of just a media streaming device. It can only get worse from here.  Are full blown video commercials playing on the right side of the home screen next...
