Re: CBS soap opera shows on Roku?

CBS is notoriously bad about not permitting streaming content. there is not currently a way that can be discussed on these forums to watch it on roku. and even if you decide to cut the cord and go with watching shows on CBS.com on a computer, they have been blocking internet access the past couple o...

Re: Roku 4

Will it make toast? If it won't make toast, I want no part of it. flower, you can buy a $10 toaster from Walmart that'll make toast. It's unconscionable that the Roku 4 won't make toast. Somebody's got some 'splaining to do. the roku 4 will be even smaller , and therefore won't be the right size fo...

Re: Roku Player and YouTube.....

Okay, Whoa! First, let me say, that I in NO WAY intend to violate ANY TOS of ROKU or GOOGLE or YOUTUBE. Second, I did not DO ANYTHING SPECIAL that I know of to GET YOUTUBE on my ROKU. AFAIK, it was there from the beginning, or in the Channel Store. As I say, I DO NOT INTEND TO VIOLATE ANY TOS, But,...

Re: NFB channel is terrific

unfortunately, i haven't figured out the code for it yet to use that. but you cannot add it from the channel store on your roku? if you go to this link, you don't see a green button right under the row of review stars to add it? http://www.roku.com/channels/#!details/27229/nfb-films but whether it w...

Re: direct tv w/SD TV

Again thanks for the replies and help. I don't have a coaxial input to my TV. I guess my next step will be to save my pennies and maybe in about 18 months join the 21st century and get a HDTV. Of course by that time technology will move further forward. as a person who tends to remain at least a co...

Re: direct tv w/SD TV

roku3 is HDMI only. older rokus should be able to connect directly through a composite cable or, if your tv only has a coaxial input, through an adaptor.

Re: What are the Softcore/Skin-e-Max channels on ROKU?

on my channel list i tag those as "mature" so you can filter by that. but i am sure i don't have them all marked that way correctly since there's no way i could watch all the content on roku to classify it

Re: Limiting Roku access?

I see that I can limit the Roku from adding new channels without a PIN, but what about setting limits based on rating? I can't be the first person to ask for this. Is there a reason that this is disallowed? i don't know that it's disallowed but i think it's a content owner/channel developer sort of...

Re: FOX NOW channel now available

as a TWC cable only customer, i keep hoping they will stop requiring a tv package to access things like this and the locked down hulu plus content. maybe an "internet plus" package with streaming bonuses. i'd pay an extra $5 a month on my cable bill to get the additional content since i ca...

Re: Limiting Roku access?

try a hardware option - tv timers exist, like this one that requires tokens.

you could get creative with it and make them earn tokens by completing puzzles or chores

Re: Help! unable to add netflix and crackle to my 2xs

what, if any, message do you get when you add it from a code? https://owner.roku.com/Add/crackle you may want to try to add this one from a code - i know the channel works right now and the developer tells me it's been activated in all regions that roku is available.

Re: Where are the new Private Channels?

If I can offer my opinion here, I think many good private developers are fed up with Roku by having their channels being taken down due to the developers not owning the content they want to include with their channels: So a few weeks ago I had a great idea. I'm going to go to my local bookstore and...

Channels are tied to your Roku account and any premium channel you decide to remove from your unit will stay saved on your account.


from what i understand, this is so that if you decide to add it again later, you won't be charged for it again
