I currently have Spectrum cable in my house.  It is too expensive, so I signed up with DTVN basic (60 channel system to replace Spectrum but I have not canceled it yet because I can't figure out how to get DTVN to be as easy to use as Spectrum cable.  I have ROKU on one TV and FIRESTICK on the other.  I managed to get DTVN on FIRESTICK, but not with any menu or guide function so I could easily switch from one channel to another. and I haven't been able to get it on ROKU yet at all.   Is this thing (DTVN) a joke?  so far it is totally user UNfriendly.  help appreciated. thanks.

If you can’t install the app, that means your Roku is too old and can’t run it. Get a newer Roku like the $29 Express or another Fire TV (or Apple TV or Chromecast). Or get a free Roku if you prepay a month. 


Keep in mind that while the DTVN app is a little more clunky than a cable box, you’re saving a lot of money. Just up arrow to see the guide.
