Can you pause (or fast forward) live TV with a Roku Box (not the TV)?

Jump to solution

I used to have a Roku TV and was able to pause and fast forward live TV stations (I get my programs through an antennae). I want to be able to do the same with a Roku Box (or stick) that's configured with a new Vizio TV. Is that possible in anything other than a Roku TV? Thanks!

Only possible with a Roku TV.  For some ridiculous reason you can't even pause a live stream on The Roku Channel and forget about rewinding even for a few seconds if you missed something.  Giant technological leap backwards.

Ugh. Thank you. What a bummer! I guess they want ppl to buy the TV instead of the box or stick but very disappointing!
