Re: Fox Channels No Longer Available On Roku

Jump to solution

So, I'm sure you've read the news. Fox says that the decision is Roku's and that Fox would prefer that their service continue streaming uninterrupted.

Whatever is going on, it takes 2 to disagree. We all know what it is - everything boils down to money. You all should have a better commitment to customers to keep this working. I personally believe that Roku is leveraging customers to force Fox into an agreement. And I think that sucks as I'm the one in that leveraged position.

I've made a commitment to Roku. I have 2 Roku TVs and a streaming stick. But at this point, I'll be remembering Roku as the company that took off the Super Bowl channel on the Friday before the Super Bowl. Yeah, I'll figure out how to watch it, but I shouldn't have to add an NFL channel or log into my account from my PC and project that to the TV when I have Roku. I sure don't need Roku for any of that.

Disappointed to say the least.

Well, good news. The email announcing the deal literally came in while I was typing my last message. I saw it right after I hit post. Happy to see that Fox Now will be there. But, I still believe everything I wrote in my previous post. Just happy that we didn't end up getting cut off, though I already had arrangements to watch another way.

This is a stupid move on Roku's part/ Your the only ones that can remove an app, so your the ones messing with your customer in a very anti-consumer way. Clean up your act and put the app back.

I panicked when we rec'd the email about Roku removing FOX Channels but then as I went to check on the validity by logging into my Roku portal, my panic went to happiness.  So happy FOX will remain available.
