The Hilah Cooking Roku Channel

Hilah Cooking Roku Channel

UPDATE 2014: The Roku channel has been taken down due to difficulty updating. HilahCooking can still be watched on new Roku 3 devices straight through YouTube or on older Roku models through the BlipTV channel. As of now, we have no plans to resuscitate the channel.

We got our own channel on Roku, dudes!

It’s been a few months in the works, but it’s ready for your viewing pleasure. We worked with a company called Fling to put it together. Well, I should say, Chris worked with Fling. I just sat around yelling, “Are you done yet? Can I watch it yet?” and generally being a pest.

If you’re wondering what a Roku is, it’s like a tiny box that lets you watch computer on your TV. Any webshows you like, plus shows you watch on Hulu or through NetFlix streaming, or individual Roku channels, of which we now are one!

Roku Player

Our channel is free to subscribe, so if you already have a Roku box, you can find us (right now) under “New”. Eventually, I imagine, we’ll be moved from there to the Cooking and Food section. You may have already seen some episodes through Blip TV’s channel — in fact, many people found us through Blip on Roku — but it would help us if you’d subscribe to and rate the HilahCooking channel.

If you’re thinking about buying a Roku, consider making your purchase through our Amazon affiliate link. We’ll get a little change from Amazon, and you’ll get to watch my dumb face on the bigscreen.

    I’m really sad that half your episodes on the Roku don’t want to load properly. They will reload about 7 times in some of your short 8 minute videos. They come out with static through them and lose audio 🙁 I don’t have this problem with Netflix or my other channels. I like your show SO much though that I’m going to follow you on YouTube instead 😀

      Boo. Thank you for letting me know about that, Melissa. Is there a particular episode or episodes that you’ve had trouble with, or does it seem to be random?
      I’m glad you can keep up on YouTube! But we will look into that problem with Roku. Thanks so much for your support!

        Sometimes I scroll through the video if it freezes. It might be more of an internet connection problem. My only suggestion is to get a wind screen filter for your mic, when you’re outdoors. Makes a world of difference!

        • Hilah on June 12, 2012 at 8:26 am

          Thanks! We just got a new mic so hopefully that will improve things in the future!

        I couldn’t get the guacamole episode to load past the first 3 min. There are several others that reload through out like the Monte Cristo. It’s not on all, off the top of my head, I know the Michelada one and the Cornbread one gave me no problems.
        I don’t think it’s my internet as my other channels don’t give me any problems.

        • Hilah on June 12, 2012 at 8:24 am

          Okay, thank you so much. I’ll pass that on to the Roku people. I really appreciate you taking the time to help!

    Your ‘dumb face’ is well suited to the big screen. We are laughing all the time. Our favorite episode is Cream Gravy. Just for the wakin’ bakin’ makin’ bacon song. Our Mary is your doppelganger so much so, in deed and in appearance, I feel like we are watching her sometimes…except she can’t really cook, yet. I will get her the Learn to Cook book.
    I ought to have a cooking show where all I do is answer my phone and talk my children through their various culinary hazards. It would be a podcast cooking show, because my dumb face is better suited to the radio.

    • Hilah on June 10, 2012 at 7:03 pm

      Haha! Thank you. 🙂 How old is Mary?
      I like your show idea, too. Sounds pretty hilarious.

      • Mother Effingby on June 10, 2012 at 7:25 pm

        Mary is 21. She used to be 16 going on 30, but she’s sown her wild oats.

    I just got my Roku 3 weeks ago and found “Hilah Cooking”. I love your shows!
    BTW, I have not watched all of them yet, but I have had no problems at all viewing about 20 of them so far on the Roku unit.
    I have been watching cooking shows elsewhere for some time – but I never cook the recipes. Often too complicated – with equipment and ingredients I don’t have in “My” Kitchen Stadium. I have a big cast iron skillet, like yours on my stove top at all times.
    I am going to cook your stuff though! Hilah, you and your food are down to earth, real, and I think I can actually pull off the cooking.
    I especially enjoy the “Hungover” Hilah and the “Politically Incorrect” Hilah segments too.
    Keep up the good work and injecting your personality into the videos.

    • Hilah on July 16, 2012 at 7:34 pm

      Hey Dave!
      I’m so glad you found me! And thank you for letting us know the Roku is working; we had a few glitches at first but hopefully they’re all sorted out now.
      I do hope you’ll try some of the recipes and put that cast iron to work. And then report back on all your glorious kitchen conquests. 😉
      Thanks so much for writing.

    Yo Hilah. I’m trying to sort out an issue with your Roku channel. The last update that we see on it is the Indian Taco segment, except it won’t load. Just wondering if anybody else had reported this. I’m still working on it to see if it’s something on this end. Great show and thanks for your time! :mrb

    • Hilah on September 10, 2012 at 7:57 pm

      Hey Mike! Thanks for watching the Roku channel. We have run into a (temporary) tech issue that should be worked out any time. You can also check out all our episodes including the brand new ones (and Indian Tacos) on the Blip Roku channel. Just search for “hilah Cooking” and you’ll find the episodes. We are working on ways to streamline this process and make it faster so thanks for bearing with us!

    So sad to see the roku channel no longer available. What happened?

    • Hilah on November 23, 2013 at 10:06 am

      Working on getting a new one set up, Andrew!

      • Dusty on March 20, 2014 at 4:25 pm

        Any idea when the new channel will be up?

        • Hilah on April 4, 2014 at 8:22 am

          Hi Dusty,
          For now, no. YouTube allows streaming now on the new Roku 3 and on the Roku 2, you can watch new episodes of HC on Blip.Tv channel.
