Re: NBA League Pass 2015-2016 Season Subscription now availa

Another one that was on my Roku then gone.
Free trial said I could watch games on the Roku.
I chose it as an option.
Could I watch games on Roku?
Nope.
"You are not authorized to view this game" every time.
Bye Bye NBA league pass.

Re: Comcast Stream TV

Couple the WORST customer service in the industry with oft times spotty streaming service.
Sit back and make some popcorn.

Re: "ABC CHANNEL"=BYE-BYE...21 Ads to watch a half hour show

Lasted less than 5 minutes on my Roku. They want me to have a cable subscription to watch the programs I can get for FREE over the air. Not much in this world is more ridiculous than that. It's like Amazon Prime music not being on Roku Amazon music channel. Whiskey Tango Foxtrot. I can listen to it ...

Re: NewsON Channel - Live Local News 100+ Stations

I'm about ready to flower can Roku. EVERY SINGLE TIME I go to add a new private channel (as i did with this one), I get bombarded with the "You must agree to our terms" BS (this time they tell me I'm in Europe, which is humorous), then the "You have no payment method on file, please s...

Re: Has anyone ever had a reply from the Customer Advocate?

I don't consider a nonresponse to be rude, just unfortunate. "Rude" is a behavior, not a lack thereof. Who knows what really happened to your question, if they never responded. Well I certainly feel that a none response is rude, to deliberately ignore a customers concerns is both very rud...

Re: channel PEAR

I deleted Pear once they forced me to watch ads before EVERY program.
Was nice while it lasted.
Truly the most flaky channel ever though.
Here today, gone this afternoon.
5 media sources could all be dead by the evening. Not worth any money if you ask me.

Re: Modded my Roku 3 and can't be happier - my experience

I complained about this all the way back in 2010. I was told my boxes were running hot, shutting down, re-booting, freezing because my network, router, air flow, HDMI cable or ANYTHING but the Roku was at fault. I was told "I doubt it's a design flaw as there are literally millions of these out...

Re: $60 Roku Connection Fee?

And THIS, boys and girls, is why I REFUSED to give Roku my credit card info so they could have it on file. If they can hack the phone, and they can hack a new car, and they can hack into the Pentagon, they can hack into Roku. This isn't a Roku hack. This is a phishing attack, by all appearances. Th...

Re: Uh-Oh - Targeted Ads Coming to Roku

Wasn't it you, in another thread that said terms of service are un-inforceable? Yes and they are but that does not mean they are meaningless. Basically companies cannot enforce the TOS against users in any legal sense but they can and do use the TOS to justify actions and the consumer cannot, with ...

Re: Uh-Oh - Targeted Ads Coming to Roku

A few observations: 1) The fact that I cannot ELIMINATE ads (just minimize them) should Roku decide to sell data usage bothers me. 2) The story is purported to be wrong, but the information had to come from somewhere. Hard to believe this, but journalists just don't make stories up. 3) The fact that...

Re: Now that Youtube is on Roku is there any better private

I really, really, really don't think a crappy Roku Youtube app interface is going to make or break Google. Their Android app and webpage are what the majority of people use. Not only that, if you pair your phone or PC to your Roku, you can easily send the video you'd like to the Roku in seconds- wh...
