So my 4 smart TVs are all roku, so this does mean I will need to make sure roku is no longer the only option in my house.   


Idle threats, @Dj_rmp. I double dare you to toss out your four TVs and buy new ones.

Ridiculous. Grow up, slick.

You've been duped. All you bought was a screensaver, @JMartynowski55.

RokuDanny-R,

This is not an answer or a solution.  Why isn't Roku offering Peacock.  NBCU says its you all; that they are offering the channel to all platforms.  So why isn't it available on your devices?


 

Gullible much?

Fire TV requires yet another power plug.  I really don't want another device that requires a power plug.  That's one of the reasons I like the other Roku streaming devices that can get power from the TV's USB port.  So, that lets Fire TV out.  Why can't Roku just get this done?  This is ridiculous!


What's ridiculous, @klgrube, is you crying about another power cord.

I use my computer constantly and refuse to have to use it to "cast" to my Roku TV.  We shouldn't be having to find awkward work-arounds.  This is stupid.  Roku just needs to get this done.  NOW!


Ignorant.

Oddly enough, Hulu, Crackle, PlutoTV, Xumo, STIRR and any of the other channels that provide ad supported content have no problems with Roku's terms. It's not Roku. It's NBCUniversal.

Luckily I only have on Roku.  Just in the process of cutting the cord.  So now for my other tvs I'm buying Tivo Stream. $49 and includes Peacock and HBO Max. Roku lost the opportunity to see four more units. Hope it was worth it to Roku. 


Bye Bye.

I must agree with most of what I am reading here. There must be a middle ground between Peacock TV and such a large market of Roku users. I really don’t want to connect my laptop to my tv every time I want to watch. As the English Premier League Soccer has left NBC sports/Gold for Peacock I will have to consider getting an Apple TV if I want one stop shopping for my other subscriptions. Roku is a great device and I see changing as a step backwards. This is not what we cut Cable for !


Ask PlutoTV, Xumo, STIRR, Crackle and all the other ad supported services why they have no problem with Roku's terms. You're crying in the wrong place.

I'm confused as to what business you think roku is in? I use Roku for their devices not their services. They don't provide me content and if i were peacock I know I'm going to reach enough market share without Roku. The only thing the will happen is Roku will be replaced. I love Roku but they're fighting a losing battle


Roku will be just fine without you and the other complainers. Don't let door hit you in your a$$ on the way out.

It is with much regret that I will not be purchasing another Roku device and I will be getting rid of my two current devices as soon as I get new devices from another company.

Roku doesn't create the channels, that is up to the content provider. NBC probably doesn't have confidence in their service yet and wants to unofficially beta test it before releasing it on Roku and Fire. It's not an unusual step. You don't know what you're talking about.


No. NBCUniversal is greedy. My understanding is Roku utilizes a 70/30 ad share agreement [Roku gets the 30%] with ad supported channels, and they offered NBCUniversal a 85/15 agreement. NBCUniversal balked at that saying 15% was too much. They also want to control all the data.

Other ad supported services are not complaining about any of it. So, clearly the problem lies with NBCUniversal, not Roku.
