    Netflix | 10/23/17 | Me, Myself, & I
    I am hoping that some of our techie FReepers could give me some guidance on this annoying issue. I have a Samsung "smart" TV which is a couple of years old, which I use exclusively to watch Netflix movies ( I don't watch TV and have not for at least 35 years. But I enjoy watching family fare movies). It is not the latest and greatest TV with all the cutting edge stuff. I see "1080" appear in a box when it first comes on, if that helps. I have a cable internet modem with its own wi-fi hotspot. I...

  • ROKU and XTV The demise of the channel

    10/07/2017 1:47:56 AM PDT · by V K Lee · 50 replies
    SORRY - XTV is no longer in operation. The original XTV, known and loved by hordes of Roku users looking for free access to cable channels and popular network shows, was removed from Roku as a result of a third party claim of copyright violation. Mere days after removal, the channel was reborn as XTV-2. "All content," read a notice on the channel, "is now used with permission or is in the public domain." But, alas, XTV's rebirth was short-lived. Apparently, not all content was used with permission or in the public domain. As of October 5, 2017, XTV fans...
