picture

Reviews around picture (4.58 of 5)

  • So many different channels to watch, such clear quality and great picture
  • But, it works!The “Roku Stick+” is a replacement for the less expensive “Roku Stick” which failed to reliably connect: poor picture quality and frequent “reloading . .
  • Easy to setup, no issues, great picture quality and zero wireless problems.
  • Great picture with all of the needed apps for streaming
  • We were experiencing lags and weird picture issues, likely because it was on the opposite side of the house and down a floor than the router

work

Reviews around work (4.50 of 5)

  • The bad: Amazon Prime only works for about 30 minutes before I start getting the "device is overheating" warning, which is weird because it rarely happens with other apps (probably more of a critique of Amazon Prime)
  • This Roku Streaming Stick works very well and is very simple to setup
  • The The ROKU Streaming Stick + works extremely well, easy to connect and setup
  • I was worried about the strength of my WiFi signal where I have the TV located, but it has worked out well
  • It is hard work finding and moving the Utube app to where you can use it

stream

Reviews around stream (4.46 of 5)

  • Although it is supposedly the same as the original Roku stick I purchased on Amazon, this one interrupts my TV streaming with Roku pop-up ads or suddenly forcing me to download a new app/channel that I don't want
  • It has great streaming speed and quality and it’s easy to set up and use
  • Remote is flatter and feels better in the hand than the original streaming stick or 2016 Ultra, which died one month out of warranty
  • Great streaming device for Netflix and apple TV , small and portable
  • For me it is a great value and the best streaming device I have used

interface

Reviews around interface (4.36 of 5)

  • In my opinion, ROKU has the best interface and user experience.
  • I use this instead of the terrible Samsung smart TV interface the TV came with.
  • I bought that TV 2.5 years ago and if never worked well - crappy app interface, no Disney+ app (even a year after launch), PLEX didn't work, and the Sonos speakers sounded muted.
  • Super fast, easy to install, and a simple, intuitive user interface
  • Roku is way faster, smooth crisp streaming, easy interface and simple controller

channel

Reviews around channel (4.31 of 5)

  • The roku offers access to a variety of free channels and to Hulu, Netflix, etc
  • Paying options are visible but all my free channels are gone.

  • There is no need to subscribe unless you want to as there are many free channels
  • I have never been kicked off a channel arbitrarily , refused service because "too many" devices at device ONE, no frozen channels ~ need I say more?

card numb

Reviews around card numb (3.44 of 5)

  • I have purchased several Firesticks and get access to all prime videos but was not asked to enter a credit card number in order to configure and use the Firestick, seems Roku would understand this but as long as people flippantly give out their personal data without resisting companies like Roku will get away with these kinds of practices
  • YouTube works well and pretty much the same as on any smart TV
  • and yet I can't use their device unless I give them a credit card number
  • I have the issue when it is plugged into the TV directly, as well as when plugged into a surge protector
