Roku unable to keep watch history

Jump to solution

I’m having issues with several Roku streaming sticks. Apple TV+, MAX and Prime are confirmed cases. I’m tired of the suggestions here “it is the developer that needs to fix it, not Roku. This is happening across multiple apps only when in Roku.

If I’m watching from my TV (no Roku) and decide to move to another room, I can continue watching where I left (as is expected). When I watch from the Roku (any app) and decide to move to the living room TV (no Roku) there’s history of what I had watched in the Roku. Very annoying issue over months now. I have given up on Roku and will getting Amazon Firesticks (they don’t have this issue, I just confirmed). I’m very disappointed with Roku. I can search “watch history” in this forum and find a few posts with the same story, only they only complain about one app a time. I use the Rokus a lot and with multiple apps having the issue I think Roku has the issue and might not know how to fix it. Thanks in advances for all the “remove the app and re add” or cycle power.

@MaleusDavo88, think what you want, but Roku doesn't keep any kind of watch history except for The Roku Channel.  It's up to each app and provider to keep their own history.  There are plenty of poorly written Roku apps, but that doesn't make it Roku's fault when they have nothing to do with the vast majority of apps.
