Channel STIRR

I recently added Channel STIRR to my Roku. Another channel like Pluto. I like the channel app, but it is sure slow in loading moving around the app. It also jams up. I added to both my Roku Express+ and the Fire Box. It works a bit better on the Fire Box, but still not well. Is anyone else having trouble to STIRR? Thanks.

Re: Channel STIRR

It's a newer channel, I'm just guessing they haven't streamlined it for the Roku platform yet. I tried it on my Roku TV, and it runs like junk on that too. I deleted it since it doesn't offer much that Pluto does.

Maybe give it a month and try it again.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

Try XUMO ... It has more to offer and really isn't too bad but it works better on the smart tv...

Re: Channel STIRR

I have all of the apps that have a good lineup like Pluto. After a few days, STIRR is now running fine. You are right, being new it needed time I guess to smooth out the glitches. I like STIRR as they have the complete Sinclair lineup of OTA sub channels. We get OTA Comet and Stadium, but not Charge! or TBD. Those are carried on a lp OTA Portland OR station not available via a translator here. KATU (Sinclair) has 2.1 KATU ABC, 2.2 METV, 2.3 Comet, and 2.4 Stadium. Sinclair says they want to partner with more services to up the list from 20 to 50. That will be nice if they can add more of the OTA diginets.
