Re: [WTF] Is Roku giving away the store?!

Anyone still seeing this? I'm not. I filed a bug on it earlier today.

Re: [WTF] Is Roku giving away the store?!

I just tried it on a different browser, Internet Explorer (11.0.9600.18231), with a clean, fresh cache. Using IE, I'm seeing: Buy %{price}.00

On Chrome and Firefox, it still says Buy $0.00

You asking about the thread main topic? Then yes, the $0.00 "priceless promo" is very much there. Here is a list of examples:

Not only games - all $1 apps are $0. The $2 are $1, etc

NB. Log into an account first to see the prices! Click on "Buy" for a channel to feint a purchase and see the confirmation dialog with price included (that will insure you are logged in. no prices are shown to guest browsers)

Re: [WTF] Is Roku giving away the store?!

I am seeing the reduced prices in Chrome. When I go to buy, it just hangs and then says "Oops. The channel could not be added due to an unexpected problem.".

Re: [WTF] Is Roku giving away the store?!

For a brief moment it looked like it might be working, almost. I saw prices ending in 99c. It looks like the prices shown earlier were rounded down to the nearest dollar ($0.00 if the channel cost was $0.99).

But now, the channel store pages either don't load at all, or it will load the html file, but the css/js files don't load (error 404 or 401), or will load one page-full of results then hang.

Getting closer ...

It appears to be working with the Firefox, Chrome, and Edge browsers.

However, there is still a bug when using the latest version of Internet Explorer, both on Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. Any price of $0.99 is displayed as %{price}.99 - But all other prices ending in 99c seem to work: $1.99, $2.99, etc.
