    When I link my Directv to the Roku for the AETV it tells me that is was successful but then the Roku never updates. What do I do?

      Log into website through google chrome. Safari browsers ect., will not work. Hope this helps!

  • Sredfield

    We couldn’t make it work either. Want to watch Longmire when season 3 starts but all we get are clips.

    Roku doesnt seem to really be an option unless you have an existing cable provider. In which case the roku is redundant…
