Cant even sign up
Nice App Just a Few Bugs 4/5
It needs Landscape Rotation and for whatever reason it crashes after a moments of watching some programs
Not "Anywhere" 1/5
The opening blurb says something like "Watch entertainment and drama anytime, anywhere." Not true. I live in Thailand and find that the app is not available "in your region". Why lie?
Not supported in Puerto Rico!! 1/5
By Carmen Amaral
We are part of the United States, and after downloading the app, it sayas it doesn’t work in my region! Really???? Can you please make it available???
Not ready for prime time. 2/5
The Roku device on my TV works great, but this app not so much. As others have said, the iPad home page needs a landscape mode. Also the home page doesn’t even fill half the screen, and that’s with an iPad mini. At least the actual videos are full screen landscape mode.
My second complaint is not being able to manage subscriptions and other account settings from the app, instead of having to log in to a separate account page. This app needs to get up to industry standards like other streaming apps.
No HBO Max 1/5
Subscribed to hbo Max through roku and I can’t even watch it on this app.
Needs Landscape Rotation 3/5
Needs landscape rotation on Home Screen
By Josh 0391
Garbage. No HBO Max
No iPad app. Disappointing. 2/5
By Amit R Agrawal
Needs an iPad app ASAP
Please improve 1/5
Works on iPad but the interface looks silly. It’s a phone app with no 360* rotation landscape view. Mediocre
Roku channel is terrible 2/5
Please fix shows not loading when using cellular data. The shows will not load says error please go back and try again I have even restarted the app and tried again Please fix this issue.
LANDSCAPE ROTATION 1/5
Please for the love of all things holy give this app the ability to rotate on iPhone please and thank you.
Why, Why, Why, No Real IPad App??? 1/5
This app is AWFUL on an IPad. Like watching a phone size screen on my IPad. Terrible!!! Why can’t they make a dedicated app for the iPad? I just purchased my first Roku device yesterday. Device is good on my tv, however when I downloaded the app on my IPad.....what a disappointment. I am an Amazon Firestick user. There is no comparison in app quality for the IPad. Amazon Prime app on my IPad blows Roku’s app out of the water. I hope that Roku understands that plenty of people watch content on their IPad’s, and they need to INNOVATE. I won’t waste my time with this app.
Need landscape rotation on iPhone 4/5
Love the app, but please make the landscape view flippable to the other way. I can’t access the sound volume buttons in the current situation of phone bottom on the right.
Every other video app has the ability to rotate the landscape position so it should be doable for Roku. Thank you for fixing this.
Not a good start 1/5
I tried to create an account and got a prompt saying “unable to create an account”. Rechecked everything and tried again same result. Well... I tried!
Sometimes a movie or tv show pops into my head and I just want to find out if is available and on what streaming channel. The App that is on the actual unit is absolutely fantastic. But this only shows the Roku channel. I would prefer to check on this app and not have to go through a 4 or 5 step process to use the search on the hardware. BIG FAN of Roku. Have one on every TV. This app, not so much.
Ads freeze 2/5
Why do the ads freeze so much. Not enjoyable
Total garbage 1/5
I downloaded this app because I thought it would be great to be able to watch all my Roku channels on my iPad like I do on my tv with the Roku I have hooked up to it. Boy was I wrong, I have hbo on my tv Roku but on the app I cannot. The app and the regular Roku are not the same on the app it says I’m not subscribed to hbo even though I am. Very dissatisfied with this app.
No iPad version? 1/5
Streaming App with no an iPad version? 🤷🏻♂️
Love the roku channel app 5/5
Easy to navigate it's a sleek & clean design
No tvOS or iPadOS support. Deleted.
Not for iPad 2/5
Does not support screen rotate on iPad. If this is changed I will give 5 stars because overall, this app has fun things to watch.
Crashes Constantly 1/5
Worst streaming app I've ever used in several ways:
- Search term has to be the EXACT title, (mispell one letter and get 0 results).
- Search term can only be the title. No actors, genres, etc.
- Horrible suggestion algorithm.
- Crashes constantly: During ads, during movie/show, even while simply browsing titles.
I've used Roku devices for awhile, this is the first time I've tried the app on my iPhone and I'm in awe at how primitive it is compared to my usual Netflix. I got the trial of HBO Max so I could see Doctor Sleep and was considering keeping it, but after seeing how garbage this app is I definitely won't.
Not for iPad 1/5
Does not support iPad screen rotation, therefore the app is useless. I guess I will keep using the ROKU devices attached to my TV’s...
Needs Airplay! 2/5
Please add Airplay support!
No EPG 4/5
Was really pumped about this but I can’t really browse what’s on. It’s difficult to navigate. Please bring the EPG!
Free tv! Love watching the live Circle network. Live from the grand ole Opry and morning radio shows, the southern weekend and Hee Haw!
No iPad supported version 1/5
Only is for iphones
Some Things Aren’t Compatible 2/5
I’m a bit disappointed. I can watch on my iPhone, but not AppleTV. This limits me because my phone is occupied. I did find a way to mirror with my iPad. I hate this because the movies stop. This is horrible. When it goes for a commercial the picture never returns. I only hear voices. I’ll delete this crap!!
IPad not natively supported 3/5
By Nerd Cooties
App is ok, but does not support iPad screen size or rotation. Come on Roku, you can do better
Best Free TV App! 5/5
The Roku Channel is great, lots of free content, super easy interface, and I can finally watch some of my favorite old TV shows!
A Good Start 5/5
I’ve used Roku’s streaming service on their TVs for a while now and I’ve signed up for a couple of subscriptions last year. This app, while basic, gives me access to the subscriptions I’ve paid for anywhere. There are some real gems in their free catalogue too, it’s all ad supported BUT it seems there’s a lot less than cable. It’s a good start with a lot of potential.
Great app 5/5
Watched the presidential debate for free on the roku channel app. Love it.
Free TV that’s actually free! 5/5
I have been a fan of The Roku Channel on my actual RokuTV for a while, I’m very excited to have its very own app for when I’m not at home too. Lots of apps claim to have free TV but there is always a catch, not here!
Very helpful guided intro and useful app
Free content! 5/5
Love the UI on this app. Very easy to use! Lots of free content as well!
Lots of fun free content 5/5
This is a great app! Well designed, easy to use, and fast. Best off all it has all my favorite tv shows from when I was a kid for free!
