Re: New user question about pay channels

as far as i have seen in my collecting of channels, channels with a free trial and a charge later are going to be paid through the content owner's website, for which you will have to register and enter a payment method. if a channel is paid for on the roku via the payment method on file on the roku ...

Re: List of apps only on certain Rokus?

Re: List of apps only on certain Rokus?

Any one still using the 1st gen Roku should have already replaced it for a Roku 3. Wait until there is a good sale to get it under $99. i have both. actually i have all 4 generations! It would be nice if this information was included in the channel store. it kind of is. i keep a separate roku accou...

Re: True Keyboard support for Discovery / NetFlix / Amazon P

you mean you want a keyboard that connects to the roku itself, not just logging into the roku on your computer via remoku and using the computer's keyboard to type in your query? not that i have seen. i suppose it might be possible, since some other remotes (like the harmony series) can be linked to...

Re: Roku eating up my broadband

you could try a sleep timer plug
this one from amazon can be set to go off after 30 minutes, 3 hours or 6 hours.

Re: Roku eating up my broadband

i have multiple rokus in my house and even with myself and two (previous) roommates, each with a roku (and 3 laptops between us,) streaming multiple things a day, hitting 10G in a 24 hour period was rare. when leaving the roku in the home position while not actively in use, you should definitely not...

Re: Lock or hide channels

amazon instant video has the option to change your settings so that paid items cannot be purchased without a PIN, but it doesn't lock access to the channel itself and any free content. Actually for free content with Amazon I had to enter my PIN, but not for videos I have purchased. i think those ma...

Re: 983 Annoying Noob Questions

recent british programming can be found on the paid subscription channel Acorn TV. it's inexpensive at $2.99 a month. check them out online before you decide. they have a 30 day free trial but the content rotates. usually it's up for around 5 weeks at a time but they are really good about noting wh...
