I just started using this thru the Roku app after giving up a basic Limited Cable service tiny box. I've had them all over the years including Directv, Homerun, and a variety of PVR OTA boxes as well as many Cable or dish DVR set top boxes. REALLY, got tired of paying big bucks and finding most of my viewing was either from broadcast channels or from streaming TV/Movies/etc. from Netflix and the like. So I started looking at Roku apps offering Live TV channels along with on demand shows. So I end up here - after finding many streaming live tv offerings not to my liking.
I like the concept of having (mostly) just what I want for a reasonable price without a lot of hardware and program-bloat that make selective viewing a pain. So with a beefy modem and router driving the Roku/TV I'm pleased to see these minimal (but expandable) services being developed.
Having just read a few of the previous posts I see some folks have experienced the rather sad state of the fast forwarding feature in this app. Additionally, i find it bothersome that the "Favorite" channels I select keep changing on their own. However, I'm hoping that these nagging nits will disappear in time as the app matures - assuming it is addressed.
Since it still is appearing as a beta I wonder, is there is a dedicated area ffor posting issues and suggestions?
I am hoping this app does endure and improve. As well, I am hoping price creep and bloat doesn't cause a wasting death.......
