Re: What's With newswire

Newswire works very well.There are no problems with it. Out of approximately 47 news channels only two were in question. All the other ones work perfectly well. No loading/buffering problems that i've ever seen. MBD is just being his usual snarky self,that's all. Sorry, I didn't see any "snark...

Re: The problem about ads

Sorry, but I can't resist.  Personally, I'd rather watch ads full time than episodes of "Alf". While ads are often offensive, everyone I know installed volume "mute" switches back in the 70's, and I'm pretty sure that almost everyone on the planet these days has a remote that wil...

Re: Netflix new annoying auto preview when browsing will make me cancel for good.

I have to agree with mike.  Why should Netflix pay any attention to chronic complainers who contimue to buy the product.  I left Netflix streaming well over a year ago, for other issues, but its not like its the only game in town. This thread has been going on for over 3 months.  If those people who...

Re: Chirping/popping noise - when will we see a fix?

I'm growing tired of the chirping/popping noises with the Roku Ultra.  Is this being worked on?  Can we expect a fix soon? Thanks! -Kevin I've heard this is an issue with the Premier as well.  Does anyone know if switching the audio to "Stereo" instead of DTS or any of the other audio set...

Re: MLBTV issues

I subscribe to Gameday Audio and get all games on  my desktop. I've never been able to listen to them on my Roku channel til last week when I checked and was pleasantly surprised that I had access to Cardinals audio..  This week, they have plugged that hole and I can no longer listen on the Roku cha...

Re: Britbox

It's always nice to get another paid subscription service.  When it actually shows up, I will compare its offerings with Acorn and other alternatives and decide whether it is worth the price of the subscription.

"Excited", No, but more content is usually a good thing.

Re: MLB.TV 2017 on Roku, $112.99 for full season

I haven't had a cable subscription in many years.  I dropped my Dish Network subscription in 2011. I have absolutely NO desire to subscribe to cable on top of a subscription to MLB-TV.  My problem is NOT solved and blackouts are DEFINITELY NOT a thing of the past for me. Glad things are going well f...

Re: Took Premiere+ back.

In the end, to each his own. Bingo! I also have 2 fire sticks and use them for almost nothing but Amazon Music, since Amazon has chosen to cripple their Roku app.  Everyone has different desires, tastes and  needs. Use whatever makes you happy and don't waste your time arguing about which is best o...

Re: MLB.TV 2017 on Roku, $112.99 for full season

Unfortunately, their crazy blackout rules are still the same.  In the middle of Oklahoma I'm still blacked out from all live Cardinals games.  It's only a seven and a half hour drive at a little over 500 miles.  Also blacked out of Both Texas teams, but I don't really care about that.  Guess I eithe...

Re: roku wants tv subscription

   "Happy wife...happy life".  So if you want to avoid her wrath and complaining if she can't handle the "change" then I strongly suggest you bite the bullet and at least get one TiVo for your ptimary TV.  For secondary TV's (like in the bedrooms) antenna TV plus a Roku (or othe...

Re: Roku 3 and external hard drive

I have successfully used two  USB 2.0 hard drives that are not powered on a Roku 3, an old Toshiba and a Seagate Free Agent. Both are in the 300GB range.  Never had a problem with either. I have also used them on a TCL-Roku TV which now has an ethernet to USB converter in it.  I have yet to try the ...

Re: Amazon music app limited

I don't know about music you've uploaded, but the Roku app definitely does  NOT include Prime Music.  That is the choice of Amazon, not Roku.

Re: Roku TV a bad choice?

We have a TCL-Roku TV as our main video and we love it, but we are simple folk who can't imagines why you would want a 32" television in your kitchen.
