Urgently Fix the Roku App
The App has been buggy since release and far inferior to it's predecessor the unofficial app.
The issues STILL current:
Even when logged in, followed streams are NOT showing at all.
Online streams are not showing up in the list of channels.
Video quality still does NOT have manual selector (this is critical with Australian internet).
The app crashes frequently.
The interface is horrid.
Unfortunately, the Twitch App on the Roku is no longer supported by Twitch and was removed.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. We definitely understand the upsetting and frustrating nature of your issues.
wow, two years later and all of these issues still persist.
Found this from a google search about the issues I was having with the Twitch app in the Roku. It seems this has always been broken? Twitch seems to have no problem showing ads in full 1080p HD but defaults the unchangeable stream quality to some unwatchable pixelated mess.
You guys realize roku is the one service we can't block your shitty ads with? Why does the roku channel suck so bad? Maybe I should just use the Chinese streaming channels?
This is still an issue, no response to this issue. How the unofficial one was superior to the official one in every way possible just blows my mind. Trying to find large tournaments on this app is awful.
Twitch roku app is terrible. It's seriously embarassing. I go to CSGO and only see channels with like 3-5 viewers. I don't see the top viewer channels at all. And the quality is not good either. Really Twitch?
Twitch only shows very very very low viewer count streamers for me now on 3 of my rokus. I never had one problem with the unofficial app. Now I cannot watch anything worthwhile on twitch. This has been going on for months and started popping up around sept 15 https://www.reddit.com/r/Twitch/comments/3qp0iz/roku_channel_not_showing_all_streams/
How about some sort of response and fix????
It also shows lots of incorrect games when you select one. Try selecting SC2 and you find LoL, COD, Minecraft, etc.
It also doesn't properly sort the most viewers streams on top (anymore). You have to search through pages of streams, most the wrong game, to find what you want.
Still occurring. No follower lists, lots of buggy problems.
Having the same trouble with not having follower lists on the Roku app
The only way i will watch twitch is on the roku. So for now, bye
I have none of these problems on my Roku

We are working on improving the Roku app. The app is built in partnership with the Roku development team and so we are trying to get these fixes prioritized with their team.

They probably don't even care sadly, we will probably just have to watch something else like http://www.hitbox.tv/ or something.

100% Agree, would take the unofficial app in a heartbeat. This makes me want to give up on twitch all together.
I don't even care it works fine on PC, if they can't offer support to my Roku or even communicate they are doing something about it why bother supporting them as a company.
