Re: Fox Sports Go on Roku

Do be aware, in case you aren't, that it required authentication against a service that provided Fox Sports, such as a cable or satellite service provider. Major providers, such as Comcast, Time-Warner, Charter, and others, support it. Without that, the content will be between extremely limited and...

Re: ESPN fights unbundling

ESPN is rightly afraid of unbundling. Without them, and sports subsidies in general built into cable packages, we could have affordable cable and the a la carte choices most of us want. It is already happening. People are surviving just fine without cable and ESPN. This is very true. However, if th...

Re: Sling TV: ESPN & Playback Not Allowed

It is no surprise. Game of Thrones' new season premiered last night. I'm sure the influx of users brought it down.

Re: Sling TV: Have they added AMC and other channels?

Honestly, I can't believe their streams look as bad as they do. 720p @ 3.5Mbps should look better. Look what Amazon did with 720p @ 2.5Mbps. Look at Netflix's stream at 3Mbps. You are comparing live content to non live content. It is much more difficult to compress live content on the fly at a low ...

Re: NFL NOW Channel up and Running as of 8/7/2014 2:30pmEST

Has anybody started to use this yet. I try to sign in, but it says my username has to be at least 8 characters when my NFL.com login is not. Seems weird that I am supposed to sign in with my NFL.com account but the app says I can't. Edit: Looks like the NFL is aware of the login issue and is workin...

Re: Watch Disney, ESPN etc have to re-authenticate every mon

I suspect because the channel owners don't want people authenticating and then canceling their cable. Making you re-do it once a month keeps you honest. The app checks every time you launch it to see if you are a valid user. Logging you out after 30 days has nothing to do with users cancelling. The...

Re: WWE Network Announced for Roku

I didn’t have a first generation Roku, but I did have an LT model from the recently discontinued previous generation of models. I upgraded to an R3 almost a month ago because I figured it made more sense to buy the most recent, top of the line model that will get all the required support and update...

Re: 120 Sports streaming network

The announcement was very light on the actual details. All we know is that it will not stream any games. Most likely it will be some type of rolling stream of highlights. I'm not sure it will be very ground breaking.

I am I've been researching a Roku the past few weeks and after seeing this channel is coming soon I may get one this weekend. I hope they have the older matches though, because I'd rather watch the matches from the 90s and 2000s


They will have every WWF/WWE, WCW, and ECW PPV that has occurred.

Re: Aereo forced to shut down in Utah and Colorado

If Aereo wins network providers will start yanking original programming from OTA. The consumer using OTA get completely screwed. I sure hope they try to follow through with the threat to remove their programming from OTA. But I know they won't because it would have serious negative consequences to ...

Re: New Netflix UI - Still waiting

It can at least wait until the credits are over before doing the split screen like the S5100 does. Also a bit off topic my PS3 no longer even shrinks the credits anymore. It plays them all the way though then brings me back to the home screen. :D The way it suppose to be. The PS3 certainly does shr...

It was mentioned on a previous page but I was wondering for those who have Roku 3, can you guys play any of the live streaming videos on this page? http://www.youtube.com/live I mean without casting from a smartphone or tablet. I only have Roku 2XS so I can't test it. I'm not sure about the streams...

Re: WatchESPN here now / Watch Disney on the way

Roku did not make the channel. ABC/ESPN/Disney were the ones that wrote the channel. I doubt this channel even went through any Roku testing beyond basic functionality to get it into the channel store. Highly unlikely. ESPN/Disney require a deal with the hardware maker in order to provide access to...
