Re: Roku, the most Religious streaming player

If people didn't watch religious channels, they wouldn't exist. If people were extremely interested in fishing channels, there would be more of them. The market decides what kind of channels come out. Of course people only want to see the stuff they personally are interested in.... Can you imagine a...

Re: Roku, the most Religious streaming player

Personally, I think that by default, only my channels should show in the channel store. Unfortunately, when I suggested that to Roku, they dumped a soda on my head and made me sit in the corner. :(

Re: can someone tell me how channels are sorted in the store

Angry Birds space is also only available on the Roku 3, so it'll have a much lower user base. It's also free, so logically it would have a much higher user base than most. With over 300 ratings, if the percentage of people who use a channel vs those who rate it is fairly constant, (no reason to bel...

Re: can someone tell me how channels are sorted in the store

I know it doesn't really matter, so I thank you for taking the time to answer. I'm just a big enough nerd that I like to understand how stuff works so this kind of thing is interesting to me. so, in the web store, for example, it seems odd that angry birds space would be ranked so low. one would ass...

Re: Where is the new Interface??

I like cereal. :lol: I do wish the ads were slightly smaller so we could get another column of channels which would make it easier to navigate, but the new UI is an improvement over the old one by any scale. Less clicks to get to your channels now. Any time it takes less clicks to do what you need, ...

Re: Food delivery channels

Roku is NOT the place for this kind of thing. I'd have to disagree with that. I thnk that'd be a great idea. Watching the game with some friends, decide to order a pizza at halftime, and everybody can participate, pick toppings, see prices, etc. Watching a movie with the gf, decide to get a pizza d...

can someone tell me how channels are sorted in the store?

Can someone (from roku) tell me how channels are sorted on the web store, on the roku 2 store, and the roku 3 store?

the system really doesn't seem to make sense and some numbers don't seem to add up.

Have to admit, that gave me a chuckle. :)

Re: No sound with HBOgo

It's not just you. I have that problem also. Shrek is one of the movies that didn't seem to work for me.

A few times I was able to change the sound to stereo instead of surround, but that didn't work on all the titles.

Re: Unhappy with Roku

Yeah, Google has done some things I am not happy about lately. I think someone had a good point about possibly the reason why YouTube isn't on Roku is there's no good way for Google to track data, I imagine limited by the sandboxing of Channels which is how Roku works. Probably requires more hardwa...

Re: Using Roku and a Competitor?

I had 2 boxes hooked up on one of my TVs for a while, a roku and an RCA box. No problems at all.

I liked roku for most things, but the rca had youtube, and a better netflix interface (imo) so if I just wanted netflix or youtube, I used the rca, everything else was on the roku.

Re: Roku Late Channel Payments

roku is broke from sending out all those free roku 3's to everyone but me. :lol:


I wouldn't worry too much about it, give it a few more days, then we can panic. :wink:
