User: Help, can I make the font bigger?

My problem is I cannot read the guide in the AT&T NOW channel....I can barely read the other apps and main screen menus. Seems like there is some standard small font that is standard across the platform.


Is there any way to increase the font size?

Re: User: Help, can I make the font bigger?

What size is your tv and what is its resolution -- 720, 1080, or 2160 (4K)?

Make sure your Roku is not set to use a resolution higher than that of your tv's native resolution. Many 720 tvs can accept a higher reolution signal, but the tv then down-coverts it to 720 for display, thus reducing the character size. This is especially problematic on smaller sets.
