  1. I have roku and watched ghost adventures but I cannot get the latest episodes. What’s up with that? There should be 6 episodes in season 25 but I cannot access season 25.

  2. My Roku Ultra is 1 month old. When I go to discovery plus and highlight it, then press the*key on my Roku remote, it does not give me a choice to “manage subscriptions”. It gives me the following choices:
    1. my rating
    2. move channel
    3. remove channel
    4. check for updates
    5. give us feedback
    6. Close

  3. You know for people like myself all this streaming stuff and the Roku and all the channels you can get around the websites you can order individually is very confusing. I’m just wondering why someone isn’t contacted in some way if they have ordered 2 things that you are billed for and that means your being doubled billed they have been double billing me for about a year and I never knew it. I think in a way you can be ripped off and you have to catch it yourself or it won’t stop and that’s not fair to the consumer??..
