I have an account, however this latest Roku update doesn't have a login screen.

1. Press the asterisk (*) key to go to the main menu.
2. Select the "Log in" option
3. You will be given the option on the next screen to either log in with a username and password, or use a code to link to your account.

Thanks for your help. I finally found the login screen. It was a bit of a nightmare.

The asterisk key didn't get me there. I'm not quite sure why. But I found the option to login under Settings.

I would seem to me that if the option for signing up for a premium account can be on the main page, a login option could be there as well.

A leftover/carry-over bug from the previous "PS3" revamp still exists.

The time being displayed until the next episode becomes available in the Roku Channel queue (now called My Shows) is still off (fast) by 8 or 9 hours for any show that is near to air time.

Anything under 9 hours just says "Available soon", which is true, but not very helpful.

Example (being given at 8:29:00 Central time on 12/10) is that Ushio and Tora shows "Available in 17 hours from now" in the Roku channel, but on the website Simulcast Calendar it more correctly shows "Episode 24 in 25:01:00" (8th vs 9th hour discrepancy due to rounding, apparently).

I agree it wasn't super-intuitive. I was looking for a "login" button on that initial screen, where it would make sense to put it. It did occur to me to check "Settings" (or maybe I did try the asterisk key, I don't exactly remember) fairly soon, but there were a few minutes of being quite puzzled about why the option wasn't right there on the same screen as sign-up.

Hello

I have posted in another thread as there are several Roku users who are having problems with the new app. We can't get it to launch as it just takes us straight back to our Roku home screen. I use Now Tv for the crunchy roll app and have not been able to watch any anime since it as been updated.

Feeling dissapointed. Please can you help us? I have removed, re-installed the app as well as unlinked the app from my account and even factory reset my Now Tv and it is still not working

Thank You

So hey, I use this every day, and while the design is much much better, fast forward/rewind is really clunky and skipping to next episode during play is now missing from << & >> or <- & -> buttons.

That's nice for Roku users, but when with the new Apple TV get an updated Crunchyroll app? The current one looks like it belongs on MS-DOS, such is its ugliness.

Crunchyroll App still fails hard on TCL Roku TV 50FS3850 model... video freezes, audio continues at times, other times it just doesn't load some episodes. Confirmed problem between Crunchyroll App and Roku TV as my other Rokus (Version 2 and 3) play episodes just fine.

Not being mean or anything, but that's one ugly app GUI.

Can't you take inspiration from Plex or something that's worlds better?

The new ui looks nice. However there seems to be a problem on my roku se. No videos will play and the app says "Playback Interrupted - Sorry, the app can't continue playing your video because of an unexpected error. Please check your connection." My connection works with every other app but for some reason this new update to the crunchyroll app has caused the playback issue for me.

I can't say I am too excited about the upgrade. Before the upgrade, the crunchyroll ap was the only ap I used on Roku that bugged out on me. After the upgrade, the crunchyroll ap is the only ap I use on Roku that bugs out on me. The screen looks different. I guess that can be considered progress.

Since App upgrade PQ is poor, looks like SD. BEFORE the upgrade PQ was HD, also load time has increased. YOU got a bandwidth problem!
