This WAS a good idea However, Roku is now forcing new users to put in credit card info during sign up process. Now, we all know that its only a matter of time and Roku will notify you that you've had your credit card info stolen! Forget it roku. Too many other options out there. 1 Star
Newer movies can't be found. Would like to save movies or TV shows to a list and be able to see what channels they are playing on or when they will be available on channel. Roku needs to find a way to unify the channels for ease of use. It's difficult to keep track of what you want to watch. Seems like this was developed for the channels and not the end -user. I am using IMDB to keep track of what I want to watch, then have to try find out what channel offers it. PITA to watch TV.
Great device and great app The Roku stick is convenient. Netflix acts up sometimes and apparently I need a new remote. But this app helps me delay that purchase. It would be nice if I could use the remote without unlocking my phone, like I do with the Peel remote app for my TV. Besides that, the app gives me control over my account and Roku stick. Also, my app remote doesn't look like the images suggests (no new features).
Love it!! I lost my remote a year ago. I downloaded this app and have no problems!! Every once in a while I have to reset the app. One time my Roku got reset and i couldn't connect with the phone because it actually unconnected from the network. Luckily i had a time Warner cable universal remote that connected to the Roku. Once I had it reconnected to my network this app worked like a charm again. And I didn't have to spend twenty bucks on a new remote. HTC desire 526
Better I've had a few recent updates. The first made the remote exponentially better, it almost never froze up and responded well. The next one made it worse than before. I mean, it was bad. The next has been better so far, although private listening is waaaay buggy. Only works for about 5-10 seconds and everyone has "chipmunk" voices. I will enjoy utilizing it once it is fixed, as I was pleased to discover it will work with my wireless Bluetooth headphones.
Private listening non functional This app would easily get a 5 star rating if the private listening feature actually worked. It rarely stays connected for more than a minute or so. I'm using wired headphones (not Bluetooth) and it constantly drops the audio despite the video continuing on uninterrupted (not losing wifi signal).
Listen as loud as you like while keeping things quiet for everyone around you.
Private Listening is now available on Roku TVs*, Roku Express, Roku Express+, Roku Streaming Stick, Roku Premiere, Roku Premiere+ and Roku Ultra
*Private Listening available when viewing streaming content on your Roku TV.
