This is starting to get annoying threads closed because people start to complain and call each other names in frustration of this mess and your surprised ROKU!?!? Why does nobody from ROKU want to fill us in on anything that is going on for real? I bought this box as a gift for a family member who doesn't post in these forums but he has already been told by email@example.com
he will be notified when the BETA is ready. I also bought a box for myself a few weeks ago with the thought that by the time I received mine he would be working on the BETA (since that's what ROKU customer service said). I can tell you he has not received any BETA instructions yet, and I wont be subscribing to MLB.TV until his is working 100%. The rumor that BETA users are told to keep hush hush is absurd, THERE IS NO BETA being passed around in private period. Any of you fools who say that there already is a BETA no need to respond unless you can PROVE IT with screen shots.
This whole thing smells to high heaven, with the now SECOND major app being advertised on ROKU's website (www/roku.com/nba) to be miss-advertised the public deserves to be informed what ROKU is doing about these issues. Is ROKU going to continue to lie to us? Someone from ROKU needs to make this right.
I gather from your post that you are NOT having a problem with the Roku DVP, but are instead having an issue with the MLB channel. This issue has been raised and Roku has made a statement indicating that they are aware of the problem, and are working directly with MLB to rectify the situation. You MAY have better luck getting answers to your questions directly from MLB. Apparently at this point I need to clarify, that I suggest this because the issue is being debated already in another thread, and the realization is, when Roku has something to announce, they will announce it, and screaming about it in THIS forum won't change anything.
You see, there is a little community here, that likes to help folks that come in here looking for help with their Roku DVP. Coming into that little community and raising flower is... Well it's just plain rude, and I'm not sayin' that was anyones intent, but folks,,, it is kinda the inevitable result.
So, I recommend that you continue to monitor these forums for sure, but you might ask your questions of MLB (in the event that you have not already, of course), and JUST PERHAPS, you will get responses there that you are looking for.
