Re: Roku Ultra, I think!

Hi All, I'm doing my best to figure this out but need some confirmation to make sure I understand. My goal is to reduce costs with Xfinity who currently provides my Internet, TV, security, etc. At the moment I have all the premium channels with Xfinity and found that I can save by subscribing to Hu...

Re: (Forced) Update vs. Restart RE: Channel Version updates

Version 1.1 was most likely build one; considering how old that date is; while Version 1.0 is on build 2. Meanwhile; your main topic, the Roku and the apps generally update themselves unless there's a problem. Mostly you just do a manual update if youv'e just added a channel and it hasn't shown up y...

Re: Disney Now app problem.

I had similar issues when Disney changed from separate apps to the Disney Now all in one app. I finally got tired of fighting with it and got a " live chat" on the Disney website. The walked me though a few steps to try and fix it and then ran some sort of test and got it fixed about an ho...

Re: Why no TCM?

I'd be thrilled with an actual TCM app; either paid or validated.  I get TCM on Directv Now; but on the companion app for my tablet, it's so much better. Two live feeds; a searchable list of movies with a large rotating catalogue each month. I finally have a nice big screen TV and want to watch the ...

Re: Directv Now version 2.1

Not sure what they changed, but I've been unable to watch anything for about 5 days now; but with the update it seems to be working perfectly again.  So it may have just been a bug fix.
The down side is, that I seem to have lost at least one channel; maybe more. . .  :?

Re: Internet speed v/s cost

I live out in the country in NW Oregon and other than satellite, cel tower, we only have access to Spectrum (Charter) for high speed. No DSL out here. The monthly charges keep increasing as with everything. Charter just upped our speed to 100, with no caps. For phone ($20) and the internet, the cos...

Re: Can you listen to Roku4 on headphones and speakers?

I skipped from the 3 to the Ultra; but they both work with the "secret" code on the remote to let you listen on headphones and the TV. Plug in your headphones on the remote, then use the volume contro. and push up, up; down, down; up,up up;down,down down. This still works on my three and ...

Re: Roku XD terrible performance

The Roku XD is a 7 year old piece of equipment.. Find me one modern device that has kept up with current standards for that long.. Shown me a 7 year old TV, disc player (blu-ray or other), cable box or desktop or laptop computer that runs GREAT after 7 years. It just doesn't exist. Just by a new Ro...

Re: New Hulu interface is so bad.. If you agree

Hadn't used Hulu since the "upgrade" a few days ago; my other-half went to watch something and after five minutes of not getting anywhere, I was told to just dump it.
So, bye-bye Hulu. . . somehow I doubt they'll notice.

Re: FOX NOW on Roku live streams local Fox station and cable networks?

Well, no live ABC for me; that I can find anyway.  Fox and FX apps both have live TV, but the Fox app list the wrong local station for me and it doesn't play.  :( Checked both websites and  no, I'm not in a market that's important enough to get a live feed of ABC and according to the Fox website; th...

Re: FOX NOW on Roku live streams local Fox station and cable networks?

I didn't even know that ABC did live broadcasts.  About all I use either app for is to catch up on Lucifer or Agents of Shield; neither one being "appointment TV" for me.
Guess I'll have to see if my locals work on them. :?
