Thanks very much! I suspected it was just too old of a model. Will the Express or Premiere work with Hulu live?

As suggested, the Ultra is top notch, but the devices you listed -- and all Roku devices released in the last four years -- support Hulu with Live TV.

Re: Can’t access Roku channels even though I pay for cable

Hi, I previously had frontier as my cable provider. At that time, I was able to stream most channels on my Roku if it was apart of my cable subscription. Long story short, I dropped frontier, went to a different provider and now I’m back with frontier. I have the same cable package as before. The o...

Re: Refurbished

... Exactly! Repackaged, not refurbished. Still reseller refurbished and will only carry the store's 30-90 days return policy. This will be listed somewhere on box or receipt. OP asked based on the box and contents description, not based on anything on the receipt. That indicates no process was fol...

Re: HBO Subscription through Direct TV (HBO Go) and Roku Streaming

I have an HBO subscription through my Direct TV account. Is there a way to use this through Roku? (The default login goes to HBO Now - which is not the same). I might be misunderstanding, but you should be able to install HBO GO on your Roku and sign in with your Direct TV credentials, HBO Now is a...

My guess is, this was a store purchase, the buyer returned the Roku for a refund, and the store poorly reboxed the Roku, instead of returning it to Roku for refurbishment, because management at that store is probably lazy.

Re: Refurbished

I bought a new Roku Ultra, but it looks like someone has been in the box. Is there anyway to tell if it's been refurbished? Roku refurbished items have a B suffix on the model number. For example, a refurbished Roku Ultra would be 4660B or 4661B. No, my box had a second tape seal, and the device ha...

Re: Roku uses to much data?

I am at 926Gb for the first month of use this is compared to a AppleTV box in another room using less than 100Gb and both TV's are used about the same.  When you're done streaming, return to the Home screen. Press the Home button. That will make the Roku stop streaming. If you simply turn the TV of...

I am in the same boat 1 month data use is close to my Comcast 1TB and I don't have the TV on all day. 

Are you returning to the Home screen on the Roku when you're done streaming? If you're simply turning the TV off, and not returning the Roku to the Home screen, the Roku will keep streaming.

Re: Roku won’t connect to iPhone XR hotspot

I tried to change the phone name so there were no spaces or special characters but I still could not connect.  I hope they come out with a fix soon.  This is a real bummer I wanted to use this when I go camping. You listed two of the three things: 1) no spaces, 2) no special characters, but didn't ...

Re: [Official] OS 9.1 Release Notes

It's getting close to a month and I still haven't received the update for any of my devices. Normally it hasn't taken this long, was there something wrong with the update that delaying it? This is how it is. For the last major update (8.1 to 9.0) one of my devices got it within a couple of weeks, a...
