  • THIS APP IS CRAP!!!!!!

    By LadiiNique
    I’ve had the app for over a year now & it still DOSENT WORK RIGHT. It takes toooooo freaking long for it load & open up, it won’t connect to my Roku tv(always says my tv is in eco mode which it’s NOT), & it won’t let me watch ANY SHOWS on the app. It ALWAYS says that something went wrong with app. I’ve closed & opened the app so many times for it work & it NEVER DOES. I’ve uninstalled & reinstalled this app so many times it’s ridiculous. SMH if anyone sees this DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP IT WILL NOT WORK PROPERLY

  • TCL Roku TV turning on and off

    By Fart master flex
    On hold forever. Trying the chat option. Transferred twice now. Still on hold. Repeated myself several times. Not being acknowledged. This is not good customer service. Only rated 1 because I had to.
  • Roku Smart TV

    By Jake3T0
    So far I am pleasantly satisfied with my experience with this smart device, it connects seamlessly from the TV to my mobile device and continues to be a great investment....
  • Really Frustrating

    By NouveauBiche
    This used to work well but in the past year or so, my phone drops WiFi connectivity as soon as I open this app. And of course this app must be connected to the same WiFi network in order to function. Most of the time I have to toggle back and forth between Settings to verify that I am indeed connected to it, then toggle back to this app and act very quickly to put it on the correct channel and program before it drops connection again. It can take 3-4 tries back and forth to get a friggin kid’s program started for my little one. It’s beyond frustrating!!! It doesn’t happen with other apps so I am assuming it’s related to this one.
  • don’t download

    By snapchat kori
    it never works for me ever.
  • 𝗥𝗼𝗸𝘂

    By Pclemo22
    Love it on my devices. Especially the voice part. Since I downloaded a lot of apps, it’s easy to access a show or network by using voice commands
  • The worst

    By Rkepner
    This app has almost never worked for me the entire time I have had it. No matter how many times I restart the app it won’t connect with my tv even when I enter the isp manually, won’t connect to any of my rokus
  • Can’t use private listening at all

    By Jerferd
    I bought a TCL ROKU TV recently, partly because I really wanted to use the private listening feature. But it only worked for a day or so. Now when I try to use it, after 60-90 seconds it pauses itself, gives me an error message about audio streaming quality issues, and tells me to check my WiFi signal. But I have done that, as well as every other possible troubleshooting step (hours on the phone with both TCL and ROKU, who kept sending me back to each other), to no avail. I even factory reset and then exchanged the TV for the same model. Again it worked for maybe a day, then started doing the exact same behavior. Given that the problem is not device specific (it happens across iPads, iPhone, and two TVs) my router is brand new and my WiFi signal on the TV says it’s excellent, I assume that the problem is with the app not receiving the signal properly for some reason. If anyone has an idea what might be wrong, please do let me know, because I bought the TV largely for this feature. Thank you!!
  • Horrible Remote

    I have to continuously exiting the app. It will continue to say ‘unable to wake your tv’ and it is not working. I have to press ‘wake tv’ multiple times a couple of minutes. This is really uncomfortable for me and i don’t know how to use it. Roku please fix the bugs in your app. I know it’s not my tv because, it is a ROKU tv. What do i do, i don’t not like how the app works.

    My roku tv dose not have Romote so I download this app now I can use my iPhone to control our tv
  • Freeze tag

    By Ms. Ktbgar
    For awhile the Roku was icing on the cake. But, a few weeks after my purchase from Target, it became non responsive, and has been ever since. I’ve called Spectrum Cable technical support so many times, and when they home visited for repairs, I was informed that Roku is not functioning well with Spectrum and that it is not uncommon for the Roku remote to go out. And I’ll have Roku to know the remote complaints came by way of other Roku customers. That is a shame to put a product on the market and risk the good name of Target. It’s been a frustrating year with Roku, freezing sporadically, and even for weeks at a time with new batteries, switched locations, it’s none responsive. I wish I can find my receipt to prove my purchase date, and share my recorded poor performance with my store customers, because, I would warn them about Roku, first!
  • Roku gives me an variety fun!

    By Joaquin Vasco
    It’s wonderful, There I can find my vintage series and amazing movies, besides Roku allows me adding many broadcasts in my TV. Definitely I recommend this app!
  • Music & Video

    By dreaB-
    Everything is great BUT i can't play my apple music on my roku tv. & snapchat videos are super zoomed in.
  • Love it

    By BigBoss109
    Got Roku and within a week got a second for the bedroom. Have had Roku for about a month now and still enjoying it. If I had to find something wrong I’m with it I’d have to say would like more theme options in setting or (being a digital artist) would like to be able to create my own themes and use them. But other wise love it
  • Should be more advanced

    By BryBry274
    I think the remote is great I have a bird and the bird always chews my remotes up so this is perfect but I feel the channel is crappie it has 1 or 2 good tv options but al the rest are really (I think unprofessional is thee word I’m trying to find) random and the way the app is designed it looks like a school project it is so basic but everything else is amazing
  • Outstanding

  • Quite Nice

    I saw, I came to Roku!
  • Massive Issue

    By AcroNinja81
    The app worked fine the first time I used it, J was able to control my new TV perfectly. But then about a week later when I want to use the app again, it doesn’t work. I click on my TV, it says my Roku may be in eco mode, I click on power on, I wait the 35 seconds, doesn’t work. I’ve tried every solution I found online, and nothing works. I would give it a better review if it worked, but it doesn’t.

  • It’s great but...

    By Starr_fire
    I think it was the last update, I can’t keep the private listening feature connected will my tv when my phone locks so I have to keep it open and of course that drains my phone battery! Other than that this app is AMAZING!!
  • Fun and easy

    By Tiffany031998
    I love it so much
  • If I cannot turn tv on I can’t pair- what’s the point?

    By Likujhytgfrdvbj
    I was loving this app until I turned my TV off. My remote is broken and I was thrilled to find such a simple solution. Unfortunately the app unpairs w/the TV after the TV is turned off and subsequently will not pair w/a TV that is not on. Fail.

    By boyfromthedwarf9
    I don't want recommendations, I don't want whatever other garbage is in the app, JUST GIVE ME A REMOTE FIRST AND FOREMOST!
  • barely works

    By jchayes3615
    this app only works 10% of the time. Probably less. I’ve gone through all of the support steps many times but nothing has helped. So sad.
  • Good but not great

    By spacecdaet79
    App is good but it keeps disconnecting from source so every time you go to change the volume or channel you need to reconnect. Other than that the all works great.
  • Some glitches

    By mom shopper3
    While I love earning cash back when I shop, the system doesn’t always pay out. I’ve made a few purchases now where I’ve received my order weeks have gone by and no cash back. I’ve also had purchases made when it’s 10% and when it finally pays out it does not give the 10% it gives whatever lower amount is applied at the time.
  • Doesn’t work all the time for Netflix.

    By katewarner 3
    Pauses a lot and sometimes the mouths don’t match with what is being said. I can stream Netflix through my DVD player without any issues. Already talked to customer service and did the unplug and reset thing but it’s still the same
  • No ease in use BLAH!

    By toiletbreath
    Installing a new device is close to the education needed to be a brain surgeon.
  • I love this app
