    Really not sure where all the negative is coming from. I use this channel on occasion at home and alot at work and have no issues what so ever. I have the 4k ultra Roku. not sure if maybe it works better on that then other platforms.

  2. Roku's misleading says:

    mmmm… NO Thanks! I’ll continue to pay a small subscription with Netflix. At least their listed shows “Play” as opposed to The Roku Channel, where NONE of their movies play. Just read the other comments here, EVERYONE is experiencing the same bull-shit from Roku’s FAILED channel.

      Same here, it’s a joke, they don’t offer the service. Only on crappy shows in their listing

    Really like the offering of movies much more than Tubi and Crackle. Crackle is really annoying with the over caffeinated kids talking over your efforts to just try to find some information on a movie…they are terrible. This said, i am enjoying the ROKU channel and can put up with some ads, but the frequency of the same ones is not selling me a thing. The latest of the new CEO of Uber is the worst!! the guy just nauseates me many many times an evening if watching ROKU. The Nissan leaf is starting to wear thin on me as well. i will be using other means until the advertising cycle changes.

  6. I can’t find Bewitched or I Dream of Jeanie as of May 2. Did they remove them?

  7. Ellen Senec says:

    I was watching Bewitched and got to S01 E07 and it wouldn’t load. I tried to skip to E08 then it just gave me a message saying, “This program has expired.” Went back to guide list and Bewitched is nowhere to be found. WTF? Anyone else have a similar problem like this?

I live in Central Alberta, Canada,

    HATE just HATE all the ADS that come up as I am trying to learn about my device.
    This sucks. Why do you do this to us. Give us a link to you and just you.
    Dont hide ads in your links.
