HOWTO connect to "private" channels

Postby aegl » Fri Mar 05, 2010 10:39 pm

Here's a quick HOWTO for using the "private" channels that
some developers have been kind enough to share with us all
(either for free, or for a donation).

To enable a private channel on your Roku you need to use
your computer to create an account at https://owner.roku.com
which will ask you for the serial number of your Roku box.

You can then enable a channel by entering its "channel code"
at: https://owner.roku.com/account/channelcode

If you decide you do not like the channel after all, then you can
remove it from the "My Channels" tab in the channel store.

Here are the threads on this forum that have announced
channel codes. Go read the thread or the referenced website
to see what other setup in required, and to get the channel
code. Commentary about the channels to their own threads
please. Just reply to this thread to fix errors in what I've
typed here, or to add other channels that I've missed.

If this is useful, perhaps a Roku admin will "sticky" this thread.
