WeatherFlow on ROKU v5.7.5 Release

The Weather Station Data v5.7 to view WeatherFlow data on ROKU has released and is available as of 11/7/2023 10am PST.

This release features the ability to assign an “alias name” to weather stations.

If you monitor stations other than your own this feature is super useful.
You can name stations “Aunt Marie” or “Baseball Field” which is more meaningful to you and your family than what the owner named it.

To install on your ROKU:
Main Menu → Search → “weatherflow data viewer”, the “channel poster” will look like below.


If you already have the channel it will eventually update on its own, OR you can request the update by:
Highlighting the channel → Press * → Check for Updates

I invite feedback and suggestions!!


The app on my roku kicks your out of the app … Please advise!

I see this is your first post, WELCOME !!

Thank you for the interest in my application, sorry to hear you are having an issue.
I need some additional information, please provide some details about what happens leading up to the app unloading.

  • When exactly does the app unload?
  • Do you ever get to the point where you enter your station number?
  • What is your station number?
  • What model ROKU do you have?

Thanks for getting back with me setting the station up and getting data upload is not the problem per say even tho it updates ever 2 to 3 minutes.

It unloads(exits the app w/o command) after a certain amount of time how long not sure yet I’m trying to gather that info I forget to catch the time I start, it unloads or both it’s not immediately I think I get a minimum of 30 minutes

I don’t have power save or data saver set on the onn.roku tv. model 100012589 which is up to date on internet access via fiber 500Mbps


Nice work on the ROKU app!

Hey, totally great troubleshooting information, Thank you !!

There are many reports and confirmations on the internet that the “onn.roku tv” software has channel unloading issues (features).

I’m speculating here but I suspect that software has an issue with ROKU channels/applications running “unattended” for more than 30 minutes.

Your observation is also correct, my application refreshes data every 2 minutes automatically. That software (onn.roku tv) does not recognize that as “interaction” or “streaming” and kills the app.

All internet searched solutions direct users you buy an external stick or box.

Best of everything,

Thank you, as you use the app, please recommend enhancements or additions !!

The app is unable to verify my previously working station id. I’ve revived and reloaded the app on Roku 3940RW2 without success. “Could not locate” error.

Thank you for the report.

I have just noticed the same condition.

I need to troubleshoot and find out what has gone wrong.

I’ve made no changes to the application . . . .

Wife and I are big fans of the app, I’m sure it’s on the Roku side. Let me know if I can provide any troubleshooting.

Is the issue related to what this thread is about?

I tend to agree with you so far. I can execute the same web calls from a computer to WeatherFlow and get valid JSON returns . . . I am working to troubleshoot!!

I am having issues with adding my weather station to this Roku app/channel.

I have followed the on screen directions to find my weather station’s number. I have entered that number, however the system can not find my station.

Thank you for the interest in my application!!!

Unfortunately, the application has had issues beginning on 5/22.

Please be patient; I am working to troubleshoot and engaged with ROKU Developer Support.

Once things are working, I will post the news here.

Thank you again for the interest and your patience!


Same issue in not finding station.
Thanks Steve.

Still troubleshooting. :slightly_frowning_face:

I’ve corrected the issue causing “Weather Station Data 5” to stop working !!

The new code-set just completed the ROKU publishing process and will release on 6/7/23 at 10am PST.

If you have deleted the application you can reinstall it on 6/7 after 10am PST

Again, thank you for the interest in my application :bangbang:

Thanks. Use it quite often to check on WeatherFlow

I cant get this to work on my TCL Roku TV. Every station # I enter it says is invalid, including mine.


Thank you for the interest in my application!

A change in the environment caused my application to stop working on 5/22.

I JUST yesterday determined what happened and was able to correct the problem and updated the code.

ROKU only publishes updates on a specific schedule; the new version of my application is staged-up to publish on 6/7 at 10am PST.

If you have deleted the application you can reinstall it on 6/7 after 10am PST
If you already have the app, highlight the app and select * → “Check for updates”.
