Re: Flixster no longer do movie trailers?

This question/problem was addressed in another thread a month or two ago. Flixster is doing other movie related items on their web site. You may want to use: 'Fandango' on Roku channel, they are pretty much doing the same type format that 'Flixster' used, ie: trailers in theatres; movies in theatres...

Re: Sherlock: Abominable Bride, on the PBS Roku channel (eve

If you haven't caught it yet. I'm watching it on the PBS channel on my Roku right now. It says it expires 1/24, though. As others have noted: I found, 'Bride' (sad to say), not a good entry. I have enjoyed all the Cumberbatch presentations till now. I will continue to view the series...I know that ...

Re: First ABC and Now NBC

It is very nice to see the TV industry finally understand the 'internet system' users are a viable consumer market. Hopefully this new year will see the remaining TV providers will offer up their product on a sans free (with commercials), or a subscription choice (as some already have done). The inc...

Re: Flixter Not Playing Trailers

I have a streaming stick. I used to open the Flixter channel and choose "Just Browse" to watch trailers of movies "In Theaters". However, I'm now getting nothing, and it wants me to Login. I set up a Login as instructed, but was still unable to see any of the films that were &qu...

Re: Free, ad-supported movie/tv channels?

Someone asked me about free, ad-supported channels for just watching flicks or whatnot (they're not picky). What are the better options on the Roku? Conversely, which ones have mostly redundant content and not worth adding? - Crackle - Viewster - Popcornflix - Snagfilms - FilmRise - adRise channels...

Re: Roku Media Player

I use both Roku media player and NowhereTV usb player. Both are limited to certain formats offered. I use mainly for files of mp4. However, I am anticipating finding the USB player that has more format conversions available.

Re: Are external disks supported on some/all Roku boxes?

...jeffrok info is correct. I use a Roku 2xs usb plugin with a thumb drive for playing all my movie/tv files on MP4. I use either Roku media player or NowhereTV usb plugin. Both free. You will find several others in channel store with sub fees. A new one just listed: 'My USB'. $1.99 mo. States a few...

Re: PUTIN IS IN THE USA...WHERE CAN I WATCH THE UN LIVE TODA

I just finished watching full speech from Pres. Obama. 7am AZ.

Go to "NowhereTV' channel. International news: CNN International. Also will probably be aired by: Aljazeera America and BBC, all on NowhereTV.

They note: Obama; Putin, and Rouhani (Iran), will all speak.

Re: PBS not working

Similar problem, cannot get to a site that enables the 'enter code'. Am I supposed to go to Roku web to enter pbs.org/activate..or to pbs web ? I have tried both sites, but find no clear answers of 'where to enter' code. Using 2XS. Same machine I have been using with PBS for past years. I have had e...

Re: PBS Channel Update

Similar problem for me. Will not give me my former 'full access' to watching programs. Whenever I click-on a program it takes me to a 'reactivate code' with a go pbs.org/activate and enter.that does nothing. All was working fine several nights ago. I have tried 'removing and reloading' channel...sti...

Re: Netflix - Lawrence of Arabia no video only audio

Did you happen to check past the first 4-5 opening minutes ? Last night I did, went to about 15 minutes in, had black screen with people talking on my Roku 2 XS. Same with Windows PC and with an Android device that I tried last night and this morning. Skipped around the movie and only had a black s...

Hi bennor3814: Did you happen to check past the first 4-5 opening minutes ? I just checked mine and it is fine, Amazon offers the same version. This restored version has the 'blank' screen audio overture playing. Once that is done, the film starts opening credits (video). A number of big productions...
