Roku OS 13 can wait

When Roku rolls out a new operating system, it takes a while. You don't really have a choice as to when you get it. Roku sends it out on their own schedule. One rollout -- version 10, if my memory is correct -- had one device get it the day it launched, and another device get it nearly three months later. Roku is on Roku's schedule.

I mention this because Roku OS 13 is rolling out. You don't know when you'll get it, and there is nothing you can do to speed up getting it. That is one of the biggest complaints I saw when I regularly roamed the Roku support Websites.

I haven't received it. Well, I don't think I have. I haven't launched a Roku device in a few weeks. Roku has been my primary streaming device of choice since I first started streaming in 2010, before I finally cut the cord in 2011. In the last several months, though, I have used a variety of other platforms, primarily devices running the Google TV platform, so Roku has had to wait.

Recently, Roku pulled that nonsense with the terms of service, which I still haven't accepted. So, I haven't received Roku OS 13. Well, I don't think I have. I haven't used it, that's for sure.

My Streaming Life has used Roku a lot. I kinda miss it. And I'll get over it insofar as being mad at Roku. Just not today.
