The new Roku Pub-D-Hub Channel v3.0.1 has been released. All devices should upgrade to the new channel overnight or you can force the upgrade by going to "Settings > System > System Update > Check Now" on your remote.
FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)
Will I need to re-activate my device when the app is upgraded?
If you are a Gold subscriber with an activated device, you should not have to re-activate your Roku once the channel upgrades. If your device is not currently activated for Gold, it will remain that way after the upgrade. Some models may require re-activation. If so, visit http://pubdhub.info/howtoactivate_new.php
Activation is handled automatically in many cases now, meaning, you don't have to go on our web site to enter a code. The option to activate online does still exist as well for those who prefer that method.
Will there be an increase to the annual subscription fee?
Yes and no. If you already have a subscription and continue to renew it annually, your rate is locked in for the life of the subscription. If you should decide to cancel it and re-subscribe later, however, you will be charged the current rate at that time. Still a bargain, new subscriptions, effective 5/9/19, are only $3.99 per year (about 33 cents per month).
Can I subscribe through the Channel now?
Yes! The new channel allows you to create a Pub-D-Hub account and subscribe directly from your Roku device without having to visit our web site. Of course, you can still do it online as well. Subscriptions created from the device are charged through Roku billing services (RokuPay) and whatever payment method you have on file with them. If you decide to subscribe online via the web site, you'll still have the option of using Paypal, Amazon or just a credit card (via Stripe) as in the past.
What changes can I expect to see in the new upgraded channel?
ALL PLAY which allows you to play a group of related content back to back such as for Radio and Audiobook programs, works differently in the new channel. Instead of selecting the first menu item that says ALL PLAY, you will now select the "Play All" option on the details screen (the screen that displays the content description, running time, etc). You can select "Play All" on any of the titles that have it and it will begin playing with the first title in the group. All Play will now be called Play All.
Note: Play All may not play back the content in the exact order you see on the screen. The reason for this is, especially for shows with episode dates in the title, they are played back in alphabetical-numerical order. For example, even though 030144 (March 1, 1944) comes before 012045 (Jan 20, 1945), a show with 012045 in the title will play first because 01 comes before 03.
