roku: thank you for the money, screw you

Filed under: Uncategorized — Sagacious Himself @ 8:06 pm

yes, activating an existing netflix on a friend’s roku is more fun than a ball of wax

https://www.netflix.com/Activate

That awaits you after entering email address in the roku3.  Why is that problematic?  After the netflix app starts it prompts for an email address.  Yes, now the fun part.  The only responsive remote button is the home key: start netflix app again.  At no point is one offered a virtual keyboard.  Sure, there is a USB port on the roku3, but how many people keep a keyboard near the roku in case of poor UI design?

roku3 netflix activation hell destroy your roku3 now the blaze tv available as FireOS app social engineering

thanks, roku

Hey now, The Blaze TV finally “offers” a FireOS app (amazon fire tv) so take your roku3 outside with a hammer and return it to technology hell painfully.

hooray
