Roku ?

Hey guys at chow.com I love the roku channel you guys have out but I think I've seen every thing on there and nothing has been added in over 3 months, are you guys planning on keeping it updated with new content or is it a dead project to you ? Because I really enjoyed it but I've just seen every thing

Thanks for any reply's

  1. Hi master_mind413,

    Not dead at all! I love our Roku channel too! I update when new videos come out. Last I checked, the latest video was CHOW Report: Sameh Wadi, which is also one of our newest here. Is that not the case? Have you clicked the "new videos" option and are you seeing that there?

    Thanks! Meredith, Video Producer of CHOW

      Honestly no I didn't even notice the new videos thing I'll look for it in just a minute thanks !

    2. Is there a search function on the Roku channel? I'm kind of new to Roku, so it might be somewhere i can't find.

            I hope more content will be added in 2012.

              HillJ, You make me happy.

              We're working on creating more videos all the time. Is the channel updating? Since I moved, I haven't gotten my Roku up and running again to check...

                Please add more content!!! I really enjoy the Chow channel (sorry, I'm not HillJ).

                  Yay nofunlatte! You make me happy too, because I love that people are monitoring our Roku channel for new stuff. Can you tell me: how do you usually watch the channel? Do you just check the "Latest" category? Or do you look in all of the categories for new videos?

                  Thanks so much, Meredith of CHOW

                      Sorry Meredith, I've just returned from Cali and didn't see your comments until now. I'll check in with Roku myself tomorrow. ...but, content is always king :)

                      1. re: HillJ

                        Just checked in with my Roku account. No new content. : (

                        Hi Meredith, fyi I've noticed that there has been no content whatsoever (new or otherwise) since about Wednesday or Thursday on Chow's Roku channel. The night before, a ton of old videos was added to the "Chow Tips" page, and then just as suddenly everything was gone. Just an fyi.

                        1. re: Conect11

                          Thanks for asking Conect11. I kinda figured the Roku channel was closed in favor of another (YouTube) social network. I never saw a Roku logo added to the CH main frame in the same area as the other social outlets CH currently uses.

          2. I look at Supertaster as soon as I get in front of the tube but lately there is "NO CONTENT" on the Chow TV channel through the ROKU.
            Hope it will be fixed soon.

              Hi, The Roku channel is supposed to be fixed later today. Please let me know if it is still broken tomorrow morning, and heads will roll (just kidding. I'll politely email the really nice Roku contact we have, whom I'm sure will help fix it immediately.) Thanks for watching, everyone!
