  • If I remember correctly, the OVGuide channel is painful to use. It was clearly designed for a much smaller number of movies than it has available now. It really needs a search function or a (user-defined) queue/watch-list or both.

    I’m hearing impaired., I’ve tried with NO success to operate the closed captions.

    • Which Roku channels have you tried? Not all videos have captions. Did you check the options for closed captions in Roku Settings?

        I’ve tried with no success. I think I’m going to say good bye to ROKU in May.

    Does Roku publish a listing of which cable or satellite carriers support the various “TV Everywhere” channels? It’s frustrating to add the channel, enter the activation code, only to find out it’s not supported by my cable carrier. I know that they are constantly adding new carriers, but they are not communicated when they are added, that I know, so I’m forced to add the channel & go through the unnecessary steps…

    • Yeah, that is annoying. I’m unaware of a list. I doubt there is a complete one anywhere, because this is entirely between cable/satellite providers and networks. Roku and FireTV are just platforms that networks make channels/apps for. Pretty much the only thing you can do is complain to your cable provider and ask them to consider putting a notice on their web site when they have negotiated access to any more “TV Everywhere” apps.
