Re: channel PEAR

Regarding the mentions of Fox News. That stream has been killed. The Fox News on the Pear Channel main media db page hasn't been working for some time. There is another URL listed in the forums that generally works but then it occasionally has issues. I just tested it and it is up. That is the stre...

Re: channel PEAR

Where oh where did you find Fox News International??.I have the free version of Channel Pear and have looked everywhere for it,but can't find it. Does it require the paid version to get it? Go through the Channel Pear forums. What I do is open a post with URL's and use my browser's find feature to ...

Re: channel PEAR

I have BBC 1, BBC 2, BBC 3, Channel 4, E4, Channel 5, Film 4, Sky Drama, Sky Sci Fi and the Fox News that I mentioned previously. The Sky Channels and Fox News are kind of flaky. Sometimes they are solid, sometimes they buffer a lot and sometimes they do not load at all. But all of the other channel...

Re: channel PEAR

I use it mostly for the channels from the UK and so far I have never had a UK channel go out on me with the exception of Sky SiFy which buffers once in a while. And I found a real gem, the international version Fox News Channel. It's pretty much the same as the domestic version except that it's comm...

Re: Roku shows "Not Connected" but I am connected

There is nothing that irritates me more than having everything working just fine only to get an update that introduces annoying bugs. They should provide a way to revert back to the previous version if we want to.

Re: Hulu trying an ad free tier

That is just crazy. If I paid $4 more they would have to give me Grimm without commercials, and Once Upon A Time is usually drowning in commercials. May drop Hulu if they add more commercials to the base service. edit: how much you want to bet this commercial free service ends up with more shows wi...

Re: Hulu trying an ad free tier

I'm with you. It doesnt get me all worked up. And if that revenue generated by the ads helps them get more current content, then i can sit thru 2 commercials without an issue Yes, but if you are wiling to pay more for the ad free version then that extra amount you are paying is presumably going to ...

From what I understand there is an option to turn this feature off in your online Netflix account.

It supposed to be in the same location where you can turn off the Auto Play feature.


Where did you get that information from? I can't find any such option.

Re: AC/DC Theme

I don't care what themes they use. I don't use my Roko to look at the themes. I use it for watching programming. Let them use any theme they want.

Re: Radio Paradise Channel

I'm having the same problem with the Live365 Roku app. Sometimes the stations load right away and sometimes it takes seemingly forever for them to load. Deleting and then reinstalling the app only fixes it temporarily. I'm getting it on both my Roku 1 and my Roku 3. Pandora always loads right away o...

Re: I am starting to remove channels with more than one ad

That Tubi TV channel is the worst. You have to sit through four commercials before the movie even starts. And then if you change your mind and decide to watch something else you have to sit through four more commercials. What a joke, shoving commercials down our throats like that. I deleted the chan...

It looks like it won't be anytime soon. With the recent announcement about Chromecast it seems that just about everybody will have it soon except for Roku.

HBONow website no longer lists Roku as one of the platforms

The website no longer lists Roku as one of the platforms where an app is “coming soon," though. Asked about this, HBO told us recently that Roku’s lack of mention shouldn’t be read into too much. “I don’t have specific details to share about Roku timing, but our goal has always been to make HB...

Re: Oh No! ESPN may leave SlingTV.

It was said a while back that Sling is paying ESPN the same as cable,

I keep reading that but I have yet to see any documentation for it. Perhaps I missed it. If so I wish someone would post it.
