Failed After A Few Days
Reviewed in Canada on June 7, 2022
I had high hopes for this remote control, particularly since it seemed to be a more up-to-date version for our Roku TV, with instant access to the services we watch most: Prime Video, Netflix, and Disney+.
Hulu is also included, but as it is unavailable in Canada, I figured three out of four wasn’t bad, particularly since other Roku remotes like it have one decent service button and three oddball selections that are of no use to me.
We popped fresh batteries into it and the remote functioned as it should for all of three days before simply stopping to do so. It would not turn the TV on and when we did so manually, none of the other buttons worked.
I thoroughly examined it and even changed out the batteries, but this remote was not only merely dead, but really most sincerely dead. I guess that’s what you get for buying a cheap off brand versus a replacement directly from the manufacturer.
