On screen clock all of the time,

I think it would be great to be able to see the time in the upper right hand corner all of the time, even when you are watching a show. This is a recommendation, please add as a feature.

 

Thanks

Re: On screen clock all of the time,

There's a place for suggestions:

Suggest a Feature | Roku Community | Roku

I'd like this feature and developers could add it to any channel/app right now, but I think it would have to be something that could be enabled/disabled because I'm sure some people wouldn't like it.

Re: On screen clock all of the time,

If you have a voice remote, you can just ask "What time is it?" It does show in the upper right hand corner in the 11.5 OS. In 12.0 it shows at the bottom of the screen.

The two programmable buttons on my remote are for "What day is it?" and "What time is it?"

It's just a momentary display, though.

Just a guess on my part, but that would probably require the approval of every channel provider on Roku devices. And I agree that it would have to have a way to toggle it off if desired.

They could add an item in the * option menu to display time: on/off/momentarily. They figured it out for closed captions.

Obviously you are guessing, because PIP, and display over other apps is not a problem.

Re: On screen clock all of the time,

I would like to see the time at a glance. I could just pick up my phone if I want to do it manually.

You may be able to find suitable third party add-on hardware if you google "wall clock".
