Roku TVs and some sticks have this problem. There has been no official word on whether or not it will ever be addressed. If you look in the footer section of every web page under Platforms and Devices column, you will see Roku "Box" listed, not TV and not stick. My Roku-3 works great. My TV has the same problem as yours.

That problem doesn't exist with an Amazon Fire TV, but there is a different issue with that which occasionally requires clearing app data, which also logs you out so you have to log in again. Chromecast supposedly plays OK, too, but that needs another device to "kick off" each episode, which to me is just a pain. From what I've read, Xbox is a pretty frustrating experience.


Reportedly, PS4 plays OK, I haven't heard anything bad about the Apple TV box, and as I said, specifically my Roku-3 (don't have any of the newer models.)

But for now, at least until (and that's a big if) they ever decide to do something with it, you just won't be able to watch those certain episodes directly on it without buying a separate device.

Well Heck...I also get it on my other tv that does not have the app but I am using a roku-2 box. Thanks for your reply...really is a pain. Some one said something about emptying a cache...yet no instructions on how to with the roku app built into the tv..

Again, thanks.
