Last Straw - I've had it with Roku

Thu Jun 28, 2018 1:46 pm

Last night you removed the only app I use on your device -- PLEX CLASSIC. What a lowly, underhanded thing to do - It never updated, and has a better interface, and is 5x faster then the present version of Plex. Why couldn't you have just left it there instead of removing it? I already hated your company for all the way you treat your customers, but this is the last straw.
As of today I will be shopping for a new streaming device, and will smash the Roku box with a sledge hammer.

Why would you do that? What's the point, and why would you make the point to share that with a bunch of strangers on the internet?

Apparently it has for quite a while (according to the Plex forums). https://forums.plex.tv/t/roku-just-stopped-supporting-plex-classic-6-27-2018/276783/19

I think we have a legitimate claim to demand a refund regardless of age.  We had this installed and they removed withour consent.  The device belongs to me.  My device, since I bought these for Plex Classic, is now worthless.  It's not based on obsolescence, merely their whims.  Even if they bring it back, do we really want to support a company that does this?  I don't.  I doubt others do too.

Just demand a refund.  You had a device with value.  They broke in like a thief in the night and took that value away.  Don't destroy, make Roku pay.

I guess Roku is getting rid of channels early using the older code or duplicate channels?

This sucks.  Plex Classic worked so much better than the new one.
Navigation for my children will be impossible now.
Why not let it stay around for us who want it.
Please stop auto-deleting channels off of our personal devices.

Confirmed it was Roku that removed it, not Plex.

This is a shameful action. The third or fourth most used 'channel' I had.  You've reduced the utility of the device.  And the process!  It's as though y'all snuck in in the middle of the night and stole it.

I am very disappointed.

There was absolutely no legitimate reason to delete this channel.  It worked flawlessly.  It did not violate any of your terms.  Just a dìck move, Roku.

People, throw your Roku's away and get Android boxes. I did and I'm not looking back. There is no future with Roku.

What do you recommend  - the google box?
BTW the mods of this forum deleted my other post  "Last Straw - I've had it with Roku". I guess that's how they deal with criticism.
