Roku has turned it down again . I posted my displeasure at Roku on their forum about not having HD . Now Roku says they are working with CR to get HD approved on it (I called b.s.to them on it) and that they weren't trying to stop CR from having the app in HD .



I am glad I am not alone in being disappointed with not having an updated app to take advantage of features that are a part of the premium membership.

I don't think this falls on Roku's approval process. They clearly approve apps for their platform.

If I were to place blame , it would be on the lack of competency the Crunhcyroll development team has demonstrated over the past several years... Perhaps that is why they are actively hiring/replacing their Engineering Manager.

Does James Lin drop into these forums from time to time and read feedback from his customers?

An Open Letter to this post.

I'm locking and closing you because you are now irrelevant.

Roku is coming soon, I'm sorry you don't believe me.

Love,
