    Following the Roku Amazon menus to Downton Abbey Season 3 does not take me to the Masterpiece version, rather it takes me to the British one. Furthermore, it quotes a price for each episode. Since I am able to watch it streaming on my Kindle Fire, I wonder what is wrong with the Roku implementation?

    I just bought my first ROKU and I can’t get RTE (I live in Ireland). On looking at the blog I see no-one answers any queries…….I’m worried.
