Yeah. Still doesn't work. It's getting frustrating, since the Roku is how we watch 100% of our GB content...

Almost a year and the app still hasn't been published to the official Roku store...

We are going back and forth with Roku about some stuff before this becomes official, unfortunately. Communication with them has been a bit slow.

Does it matter or make a difference between the roku dongle player and the builtin rokuTV app?

Hello,

On the roku app I used to be able to see premium stuff like Unprofessional Fridays. I did have to verify by linking my roku channel with my account and putting in that code in order to be allowed to see the premium stuff.

These days, nothing premium shows up as an option to watch on roku (no UPF, no Die Another Friday, no Playdate, etc.). Is this a deliberate policy change or did I mess something up?

Thank you!

@leraa: You might just need to re-link your premium account (with a new code). My Roku randomly forgets?/drops? my premium account link every couple of months.

@yourbrain: that was it! Thanks. I generated a new code, hooked it up on the website, and restarted the roku channel. Suddenly there's UPF and all the other stuff.

I really appreciate you taking the time to write that out. \o/

@leraa: @yourbrain: Thank you for asking and answering this! I've often thought, did they get rod of UPF?

I rarely frequent the site but watch videos using the app every night. I really started to miss the premium content, and thought maybe my membership lapsed or something, so thank you both! I'll relink again too.

Hey guys,

So lately I haven’t been able to access the latest episodes of Playdate or Pokemonday Night Combat. I can see the previous weeks episodes, just not current eps. I unlinked, relinked, nothing. Restarted Roku, still nothing. Deleted and re-downloaded app, linked premium account, restarted Roku and still have a lock symbol on both videos.

My Roku is up to date at version 9.0.0 Build 4142. My GB app is version 2.1 build 4. Out of ideas on this one. Any help will be appreciated.

Im having the same issue. Account is linked but it says to link account to access this video. Major bummer since rokus are the only way i watch videos from the site. Hopefully this gets fixed soon.

Same issue as the last two posts. Account is linked but unable to access premium content. I even tried to uninstall the addon, but that didn't work either.

Did older videos get removed by chance?

I was attempting to finish "Playdate: MISSING: An interactive Thriller (and Subways)," but it seems to have been removed from the Roku app. I also noticed that the Until Dawn videos were also gone.

Is Giant Bomb interested in community help with the app? If it could be pushed to GitHub I would be happy to help enhance it.

Is there no way to change the stream quality on this app?

For the past two weeks most days I'm having trouble just getting videos to load on the App, it is definitely not my internet as everything else works just fine. It is only the Giant Bomb app. I can get in just fine but Videos will take FOREVER to load most days, if at all. When they do they just stutter and start buffering again.

This is only a problem I'm facing with Giant Bomb app itself, and I'm on a fiber connection.

Over the last few days, I've been having trouble with the app. It goes to the load screen then crashes.

Trying to add the channel and it says "The channel code provided is associated with a channel not available in your region." I'm in North America.

Lately (the last few days) I've had trouble getting videos to play in the beta Roku app. As far as I can tell they'll start loading, then get stuck. Backing out then trying again a few times had occasionally gotten it to work (like with the Bloodroots QL), but today's East Playdate keeps getting stuck even with multiple attempts. Tried rebooting the system and app, everything's up to date (as far as I can tell), etc etc.

Also it seems random but I'd say about every forth video or so won't display a thumbnail.

Either way, not a huge deal, since I can always use the GB app on my Xbox. But thought it was maybe worth mentioning or seeing if anyone else was having the same problem.

I'm on a TCL Roku TV if that's helpful. Thanks!
