    When are we getting the DirecTV Now app?

    • Kurt Schossow


      • Wilson Guzman

        Yeah When? 😡

        • Donald Bunce

          Maybe if it actually worked, I’d care. But from all the reviews I’ve read, there’s more love for the IRS right now than the DirectTV Now app.

          • Dale Atwater

            I got DirectTV Now with the free Apple TV. Sold the Apple TV. Waiting for the Roku app. It has worked fine for me on all my android devices and windows browsers, though. Never had a single problem.

          • Diar

            I did the same thing with the Apple TV. DirecTV Now has been an exercise in frustration. Constant errors and buffering. Not all the time but when it starts happening, just horrible. It’s been performing better as of late, though, and throwing in free HBO was a nice acknowledgement of the issues… And a way to stem mass cancellations.

        • Tom

          I’ve had DirectTV Now for several months on my Apple TV, and although it was a pretty rocky start, the issues have smoothed out. As Diar mentioned, early adopters are now enjoying a free year of HBO for their troubles.
          Now, the only times there are issues are if my broadband provider has problems in the area, or if my damned cat unplugs something.

          I already have a Roku stick for my other TV, and don’t want to buy another Apple. Hoping Roku climbs on the bandwagon soon!

    • Devin Serpa

      When it’s cheaper.

    • Chad

      I was told by march 31

  • Robert Dunmeyer

    Too many commercials with blacks in them.on Roku channels . I use Roku to get YouTube on an older TV. I love old horror movies from the 1960s to 1980s.

    • connie

      Wow. Hate for “blacks” doesn’t make your life better!!!

      • donja motley

        Wow I agree with you Connie but some people are ignorant and know no better.

    • Daniel Laure

      Dude, you actually wrote that? did you thing about reading it and how it would sound in a PUBLIC forum. think about it.

      • Tomp

        I’ve seen other posts from this P.O.S.-Yep, he meant what he wrote. What a sad, little man.

    • Shalonda

      Is that really your picture cause if it is then your face need to be banned period! That was really racist but I don’t necessarily take offense to it cause you can easily not even watch TV. We’re here and there and going nowhere!

    • LindaKyle

      Your racism belongs in the 60’s along with your choices of programming.

  • Carla Warren

    Destination America?? And also half the channels I can’t “unlock” because they don’t have DISH on their list…

  • Sfje VanDeffertiburger

    I have a MHL input with 3400X – Roku Stick. Does anybody else have the new TLC Go App continuously freeze and reboot your device??? It’s driving ME crazy! And when you just give in and go through the whole setup again and try to find your place you’re subjected to have to watch ALL of the 5 – 8 commercials at every break AGAIN AND AGAIN….rant finished….please fix

  • timekiller_s

    This would be a LOVELY Roku channel: Pages from Ceefax ( FWIW, it’s up to the minute BBC News from the here and now, but presented in the style of the discontinued CEEFAX Teletext service (1974-2012). With nice background music too. Would be a neat add just for background noise.

    I might add: EXTREMELY PLEASED Roku user since 2013. Just got a new Roku Premiere unit and have it all set up … not sure what to do with my old one now. May pass it on to a friend (it’s been wiped and unlinked).

  • Brian Moore
  • Judy

    How can we download that GREAT city background now on Roku advertising Spring is in the air? I just love that background!

  • charles williams

    there is NO WAY to plug in a SD stick that Roku is selling as their ascessories. You need a STICK not a card…unless someone knows something i don’t.????

    • Jose L. Ramirez

      My Roku 2xs has an SD card slot and USB port.

  • Rene

    When Roku will let Latin America customers to add Chanels from the web, I berely have access to the free channels

  • Frank Elliott

    I tried the “Roku Reuters app” today on my new Sharp Roku TV. It is quite unimpressive. I presume it’s “curated” by 100% unpaid volunteers. Right now I’m watching a “you’re an idiot for watching this” “NEWS” video that was allegedly a news conference about the border wall. “Nothing to see here!”

    9 minutes in, it’s an abortion. Over 8 minutes of silence and an empty podium. Then a brief CBS test pattern. Again, no evidence of ANYONE at Reuters doing actual work.

    15:30 “final mic check”–Look kids, this is NOT NEWS. It’s a giant waste of time and energy. Much like the Trump administration, but that’s no actual excuse.

    When I worked for Reuters, there were people who took pride in their work. This is pathetic and I gather emblematic of beyond-shabby NON-JOURNALISM destined to parallel the Trump admin. THERE IS NOTHING TO SEE. IT’S ALL BEING DONE IN SECRET. YOU DON’T CARE!

    Your NEWS ITEM ON VENEZUELA? All in French. Guess what? Wrong language. Typical of those who are paid to FAKE LIKE THEY DO NEWS.

    A similar lengthy waste of time for the Sean Spicer press briefing. What IS Reuters now?? It’s no longer news. It’s nothing.

  • i know Roku lets in a few live tv things , i would love it if Roku made there own free Tv app that would capture every free over the channels in the usa .. make sub list of each state and have all the folder for each state that has them .. as in some area can only get 9 stations but in other place people can get over 80 free antenna channels

  • Olga Bustos

    what channel would I find Boxing on?
