So I've noticed just in the last two weeks or so, though I've had initial bufferering on roku, for awhile I saw a brief glimpse of a black screen and something like "you're video will start after this message." Before it just showed it buffered and went straight to the video, but last night it forced us to watch an ad. I was wondering why since I'm a paid subscriber? Is this just a roku thing since I didn't notice that on my ps3?

I've never had that happen... Things to try by extremes, but if you don't want to mess around, just go right to #3.

1) Unlink account and re-link, making sure you are linking a premium account.

2) Delete the Roku channel entirely and re-add it, and relink.

3) Deactivate your Roku from your profile here: /acct/?action=devices , then delete the Roku channel, add it back and re-link.

I had a weird thing happen with Roku the other day, but it didn't get so far as me starting to see an ad--but it wasn't showing my queue, and I ended up having to scroll down to "Link Account" -- which then happened automatically and everything was normal as it had been.

Thanks for the response! Seems it was an account linking issue
