Re: BBC News? Al Jazeera English?

You could try Channel Pear. Your success may vary. Sometimes those channels are there and sometimes they are not.

Re: Netflix admits to throttling video for AT&T and Verizon

Netflix is not the villain here. It's AT&T and Verizon and their stingy and expensive data plans.

Re: HBO Now on main menu

I'm waiting to sign up for the free 30 day HBO trial when this season's Game of Thrones run is almost over. Then can I binge watch it for free then cancel.

Re: Pluto.TV Coming to Roku

I can't get it to work on either my Roku 1 or my Roku 3. Don't they beta test apps like this before releasing them?

Re: Here is a unboxing of the Roku SE

It's good to see that Roku continues to make models that include RCA jacks. It's very useful for those of us who are using older analog audio equipment.

Re: Netflix cutting off closing and opening credits of TV ep

I am watching Netflix and Hulu on my Roku 1 since the interfaces both use on the Roku 3 and 4 are so crappy. Plus with the Roku 1 I can use the audio out RCA jacks to connect to my vintage audio amp so I can listen to music on the Roku with my TV turned off.

Re: Nowhere TV

Was CNN International just reciently geo locked? It was working 2 days ago. Time to switch everything to US VPN (I'm in Canada). Same for me, in USA. Where are you mr.nowhere man? Are you switching everything to 'paid subs'? Thanks for any info. :( I don't think it's his fault. Sometimes the provid...

NoWhere TV is a free service provided by a good guy in his spare time. I am just going to appreciate his efforts and hold off on any complaints.

Re: HBO NOW is really NOW!

There's no live stream, but if everything is available on-demand, why do you need a live stream?

They do broadcast some live events such as boxing and live concerts. A live stream would be beneficial in those cases.

It's available today. I had the wrong graphic but it turns out I was right otherwise.

Re: New Roku 4 finally announced

Look at this picture from the Amazon listing. It shows the Roku home screen with HBO Now on it. Does this mean that HBO now will be available at the launch of the Roku 4 and will it be on all recent Roku boxes or just on the Roku 4? http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G/01/aplusautomation/vendorim...

Re: New Roku 4 finally announced

My guess is the 4 will have paltry storage like the 3 (since they don't list this spec)? Using an SD card is a pain; I was hoping they would improve this. The Fire TV stick has 8gb, you would think Roku 4 could at least match it. I don't think it's a pain. You can slide the card into the slot in a ...

Re: Confirmed Roku 4 will have a reset button.

All of you Roku fan*boys who can't abide any criticism of this company or their products make me sick. And I suppose if I decided to criticize their decision to add dedicated remote buttons to the Roku 4 remote you would all be right there to defend them too. At least allow me to program those butto...

Re: Confirmed Roku 4 will have a reset button.

It's too bad it even needs a reset button. How about making a quality product that doesn't freeze and doesn't need to be reset?

Re: Roku 3 , Netflix, 25%

I have been getting this issue periodically. But so far all I have had to do is close the Netflix app, then open it again and it works again. Of course it's irritating to have to do that.
