When I chose to stop buying a cable subscription for my tv viewing I was recommended by my dad to go with Roku. It’s been over five years and I could not be happier. I get more than enough channels along with my local channels for all my entertainment needs. When I have company they cannot believe all the shows I get. I definitely have and will continue to recommend Roku.
Roku TV has been the best thing ever. I’m able to add channels and apps like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, IMDb and so many others. I use my Roku every single day. It’s so easy to use. It is so much better than TiVo. And I really loved my TiVo.❤️

My tv is awesome. It's a Roku 32" smart tv. I love all the apps etc that I can get on it. The picture is really good. Also it's a good size for my room and the remote is easy to use. The speakers also have a good range. I don't have to turn it loud to hear it.
I have all of my television apps streaming in one place. Able to add other streaming platforms. I do not need a cable box unless I want to DVR. I am able to stream my Xfinity services from the TV. Able to connect amazon firestick successfully and able to add a sound bar even though the volume on the tv is great.
I have never had anything but good service from Roku. I really enjoy paying only for channels I want, and being able to never see any commercials by paying a buck or two extra. Roku seems to be channeling the execrable standards of cable and satellite conglomerates. In particular, they have begun finding ways to force channels onto your list that you haven't asked for. I suspect that it is entirely their doing as a way to get you to try channels that make them the most money.
The company has NO CUSTOMER SERVICE. They have a self-serving forum, but there is no possible way to ask the company to resolve any issue. If you want to speak to a technician, you are sent to a for-profit service that you can pay for answers. But the $1.00 charge includes a stealth monthly membership that you must remember to disable or pay for forever.
Had an unauthorized charge for ESPN service and the agent, Richard Dean **, was very helpful in helping me resolve this issue and issue a refund. Thank you for great customer service. Keep up good work and you will always have customer loyalty. James **.
Recently during program broadcast an automated voice breaks in and announces upcoming advertisements, programs... I enjoy my Roku but the automated voice is very annoying and difficult to understand...
Worst billing experience I have ever had. Still charging me for subscriptions from someone else’s account. I’m having to close my bank because the company has no customer support that can be reached by phone.
I have a Roku tv and a Roku stick and I wish I could get my money back for both but especially the television! It's less than a year old and the worst thing I've ever bought! Glitchy, slow, and that's only when it works! But it's only like that when I'm using the Roku service! I can get on the Same apps on my Xbox that's connected to the tv, and it works perfectly! I've reached out to customer service--especially since I have warranties on both but my warranty servicers say that it's still under manufacturer warranty so I reached out to the manufacturer first--and I got rude and ridiculous responses, and that's after my fifth attempt with no response at all! They refuse to honor the warranty! And refuse refunds or even exchanges! I would rather just get a Chromecast or something but can't afford it! Don't use Roku!!
I love that Roku has everything I want to watch on it. It has something for the whole family, I like watching true crime, my boyfriend likes to watch something where he can learn about a new place, and my child like to watch cartoons. We absolutely love our Roku.
