Catastrophe (Amazon Video)

The hilarious and often inappropriate adventures of Sharon and Rob continues. Unfortunately, like season 1 and 2, season 3 is only six episodes and easy to binge watch in one sitting! This season is a must-watch for Carrie Fisher fans too, as her role as Rob’s mother marks her final acting role before her tragic death.

    Tho there is no BBC America channel on Roku to stream. Have to go to their website and sign in with a provider in order to watch their shows.

    • Hi Kris. You can watch BBC America with a subscription to Sling TV or PlayStation Vue.

      • Keith Morgavi

        And there are BBC channels on YouTube also. Just search BBC.

  • Bill Eastman

    Everything on HBO Now is also on HBO Go

    • You are correct, Bill!

      • Bill Eastman

        I have DirecTV Now (coming to Roku) but my login works on some channel apps, including HBO Go. I got DTVN when it launched and got a free AppleTV so Roku is on a different TV.

  • katherine collesano

    wish you let us know when the movies are captioned in english at the bottom in the screen before we download the movies. very frustrating when a movie is put on then you have to read the movie.

    • P Davis

      I agree. It is time consuming downloading the move to find that you have to read the movie.

    • yvonne

      I don’t know what you mean by “read the movie” however, those of use who are hearing challenge must have subtitles, or captions to understand the dialogue.

      • watersisland

        HUH?

      • Cass

        Katherine and P Davis are talking about non-English films that have subtitles in English for the dialogue. That’s different from the closed captioning feature that you must rely on.

  • GregandMelissa Taulbee

    when is keeping up appearance coming back

    • watersisland

      Your statement makes no sense. Try using punctuation next time.

    • disqus_Mad4hw7BAX

      I knew what you meant, just because you left off the (?) . The word WHEN was the give away it was a question. Sorry I dont have the answer though. I just wish people weren’t so unkind and a little nicer sometime’s .

  • Deanna Spencer

    I would really like for Roku to carry Hallmark Mystery and movie channel > Will that ever happen?
    Thanks, Deanna

    • Bonita A Kraemer

      I agree TCM STRAEMING AND HALLMARK

      • Rebecca

        Yeah TCM! Please Please Please!

    • Barbara Niziolek

      You can get Hallmark with sling. You have to add the lifestyle plus extra for $5.00 more

      • Deanna Spencer

        Does this include Hallmark mystery? If it does I will check this out. Thanks for the information.
        Deanna

        • Barbara Niziolek

          Yes

  • Winner

    Why is it that when I sign into A&E with the code that was provided it still doesn’t work? It’s very frustrating!

    • Proud Mom

      You have to have a subscription to cable/satellite in order to access A & E on Roku.

      • Winner

        I do

  • Kathie Kucera Frazier

    I’m new to Roku. Do you get charged extra each time it says “add channel”?

    • Proud Mom

      It will tell you if you have to pay, but just adding a channel you are not charged. You have to subscribe & pay in advance for the ones that charge extra.

    • Dawn Rene Young

      no, but most often you have to pay a subscription monthly fee to watch that channel. They have a lot of free stuff but not much I want to watch. I don’t want to pay anymore and that was the whole reason I got Roku only to find out you have to have cable or dish or whatever to watch the channels you want to see. I think it’s a big ripoff

  • Tere Johnston

    How do I get ID Go on Roku? I love that channel

    • Charlotte K Younger

      Tere, search “ID Go” from Roku main menu and download it. Have tablet/phone/computer nearby to get activation code, enter it, and you’ll be good to go.

  • Jacqueline Andress

    Does Sling have OWN or can I stream it on my ROKU?

  • Deanna Spencer

    Thanks,
    Deanna

  • Patti White Bellucci

    I would love it if Roku would have Arrow, Legends of tomorrow, Flash, Super girl etc I think the channel is CW??

  • Don

    Hello Melissa,
    is it possible to get the TCM… Turner Classic Channel via ROKU ?

  • Lucille Bledsoe

    I would like to know if Roku will ever carry cbc the Canadian channel?

  • Jean

    The streaming list shows what an oddball I am. I don’t even watch one of the shows listed. I watch Haven, The Glades, The Gilmore Girls, Royal Pains, Granite Flats, Friends (almost finished), Scrubs (almost finished), That 70s Show (almost finished.)

  • jimcasada

    I don’t see anything listed here for kids or sports? I’m not much of a movie watcher.

  • pinnacle

    Roku needs more fitness /exercise channels. Net fit and the other free one are boring. That’s the one thing I miss with cable; Men, women, black, white, latino, Asian a variety of exercise/fitness programs. Roku has a couple of white guys talking too much and being boring. I have sling for sports but they don’t have fitness channels. Also I’m talking free.

  • Barry Zajac

    Please! When will Roku add FilmStruck to its line-up? I was originally told sometime in 2017. I’m waiting.

  • Gwendolyn Kelly-Boyer

    i wish they would carry more home decorating shows. I can see the other shows on any channel.

  • Barb Laureys

    Yes, Hallmark in time for the holidays. It’s my husband’s best kept secret!!

  • Pamela Mason

    I really need The Own Network, I miss so many shows from that network since I changed over from cable.
