Roku Streaming Stick

Why does every single time I try to open an app (Netflix, tubi, Hulu, and etc.) it doesn’t open.... I constantly keep restarting and connecting to the wifi, nothing changes. The volume steady going in and out. The remote stops working. For this to be a brand new streaming stick it has soooo many problems, perhaps I need to move onto something else. Is there’s anything that’s not Roku that I can watch shows on that won’t give me any problems (Apple, fire stick, etc.)?

Re: Roku Streaming Stick

Well i've had lets see 3 Roku's the latest is an Ultra. Ive had a few minor issues.

But nothing like youve had. I'd be frustrated also. Is your TV older?

You obviously know the answer to your question. But you may well have problems

with other products. What type of Net service do you have? Have you

considered switching religions?
