yes it 'should' play everything just as if you had the $18-$29 roku device. however when the roku in the TV gets too old then it can't be swapped out. easier to just use a good roku (i've got 3 express and 1 ultra with a voice remote and earphones). they work very well.

Re: roku

I have a Roku Streaming Stick and an Express Plus, both have issues with channels taking too long to load (more so with the stick). This happens randomly, at times channels load quickly and other times it would take 10 seconds or more. At times channels won't load until I go back and reload.

I don't see any performance issues on my network.

Any suggestions.

 

Thanks

Re: roku

I have been having the same exact problem for eight months now using both streaming stick and streaming stick plus. I have interfaced and run troubleshooting with xfinity customer service many times to no avail. Regrettably I have setup cancellation of my TV service for the end of my billing cycle and adding the new Hulu live service for less than what I was paying with no broadcast fees. Only 65 channels but they are the ones I watch and cannot wait and wait for channels to change.

Re: roku

Yes - seemed jmarkcobb was having the same issue with xfinity stream app as I am; channels taking a log time to load after making selection. He says he is going to Hulu stream. I'm asking about his experience with channels loading on roku with the Hulu app.

Xfinity for me is very inconsistent, once I select a channel to watch, it could take anywhere from 2 seconds to 10 to not at all for the channel to launch.
