As a programmer I can empathize most of the time with other program creators, even if I would have done it differently. Tonight when I sat down to watch I found my account logged off. My Roku was in need of activation (again) and when all that was complete, i was greeted with an un intuitive UI! That is not to say I didn't figure it out, it just is a silly way of navigating what might have been (but isn't) a nice refresh.i find I have to use buttons I never had to use before. It's not easy to get from my queue to other parts of the app. This is just silly and it makes me wonder if paying 11.95 a month is worth this any more. This is just sad.

It's your money. Spend it however you want. It means nothing to me. I don't know if you are wanting to make this into a discussion or if you are just voicing your complaints. Feel free to go start making suggestions to make Roku users experiences better over in the suggestions section though.

Yes, the new app is pretty bad in some respects, but there are already several threads discussing it, so I've closed this one. Some updates are in the works which should take care of the worst of it.

Here are some of the threads where you can see what others have said, and join in if you like:
