Roku Error Code 018

Roku error code 018 occurs when your Roku device detects slow internet speeds. You can contact your internet service provider that what speed you are getting from the connection. You may want to consider upgrading to a faster connection.

For Upgrading to a High-Speed Internet Connection


For the highest possible quality when streaming movies and TV shows, we recommend you connect your Roku streaming player or Roku TV to a high-speed internet connection.

Roku devices work well with all home broadband services like fiber, DSL or cable internet. You can stream movies and tv shows in high picture quality formats like 4K ultra HD or 4K HDR. Contact your Internet Service Provider (ISP) for details about the available services in your area.

  • Check with your channel providers (e.g., Netflix) for specific requirements.
  • We won’t recommend you using the hotspots as they are reliable as home broadband.

Is there a Need of Roku to Permanently Connect to the Internet?

Roku is a low power device that is designed to remain on & connected to the internet. A permanent internet connection is recommended.

You can use Roku TV as a standard HDTV without internet connectivity. But in the case when you want to stream movies and tv shows, internet connection is required.

Should You be Concerned with bandwidth caps?


To stream movies and TV shows, your Roku device must download data from channel providers like Netflix and YouTube. If you plan to stream often, or you plan to stream higher picture quality content, your Roku device must download larger amounts of data.

Some ISPs have a limit, or a bandwidth cap, on the amount of data you can download in a given period before you incur additional fees. You may contact helptechline for understanding the use of bandwidth caps.
