Re: Has anyone used Roku as part of learning a language?

Never tried it, but I just searched for Spanish on the Roku What's On page of their main web site ( https://www.roku.com/whats-on ) and found several learn to speak Spanish channels, one being geared towards the younger audience. There's probably more Spanish speaking channels availabe that aren't ...

Has anyone used Roku as part of learning a language?

Hi -  It is not a key project for me, but eventually I'd like to learn Spanish.  Has anyone successfully used their Roku as part of learning a language?  I guess I'll add that while some may have used it in part to learn English, what I'm really after here is recommendations for learning non-English...

Re: Roku Remote... Battery Issues :(

After another night and another set of dead batteries I have to say that the issue is real does anyone know if Roku people have made any comments on this issue or issues?  Is there an acknowledgment that some customers are seeing it? One additional thing I noticed - After experiencing these issues ...

Re: Roku Remote... Battery Issues :(

I'm having AA battery issues out of nowhere.  I don't remember having had them previously.  I have two newer-seeming remotes that use AAs and one older-one that uses AAAs.  The older one seems to function ok (though it has to be kind of close.  The two newer ones function a time or two and then pun...

Re: Question about Atheist TV

Ok, thanks, it's a mystery to me what happened to my post or your response, but thanks for the thoughts here, and for the extra effort to re-post. I vaguely recall posting a question about the desire for the content of an atheist channel.  But I don't see my post either. On the side-question of wha...

search question/suggestion

This must have been asked or suggested before, but if I go to search and can't find a given video or channel, wouldn't it be just a basic idea to allow us to mark it to Roku as a title we'd like to see, and that way the Roku team could quickly identify channels or titles that users have been clamori...

Air Date vs when available on Amazon ("Elementary")

For some years I've purchased and watched the TV show on Amazon.  I buy the whole season at the start of the season, so the upcoming episodes are bought and paid for.  Always there seemed to be some delay as to when the show was aired on some systems, and when it was available to me, but the delay s...

Hi -  this topic is a placeholder - I had created a similar topic in 2017 which got a little discussion, and then posted a more focused question here a few weeks ago (which got some helpful answers), but it was deleted accidentally as part of some admin work. So, the question was roughly to get a se...
