that is me to a t. i am old, do not have a cell phone, don't want one, so when i go thru my list of 22 channels to re login in my 6 roku's it take me about 4 hours and a lot of up and down steps. sure wish there was a easier way.
Some channels I have to reactivate often. I hate it.
I also hate that Roku would be great for people like my parents who pay for HBO thru cable and could watch a lot of shows on HBOGO for example, but would be very frustrated to get into bed to watch a show and have to reactivate the channel. I could see it now, my mother having to get out of bed, find pencil and paper, put on her glasses, walk up to the TV, write down the code, walk downstairs, turn on all the lights, walk to the den, turn on the computer, go back upstairs to write down the website URL, go back downstairs and type it in, then type it in again correctly this time, then find her username and password, then login, then type in the code, etc.
Edit: I swear on my right nut that I just had an issue now, merely hours after making the above post, trying to sign into Discovery’s app, I had to do it 3 times, still didn’t work. Then it worked after rebooting the Roku. This would have been horrible on my parents with stairs. They need to come up with a better system, I don’t know why you can’t just login directly in the app on the Roku.
