Is there any way to get Daily Show w/Jon Stewart on Roku? Playon has it and I searched google and cant find a solution for Roku.

Not going to happen. Comedy Central just pulled the Daily Show off of Hulu. I guess they felt their own site was losing too much traffic. They are not about to let the Daily Show play on the Roku. The quality of the encode for the Daily Show is terrible. I wish they would fix that (and make it 16:9).

Not going to happen for free. Comedy Central currently has the Daily Show and Colbert on itunes for $2/episode or $10/15 episodes. In theory something similar could be done for the Roku. Not saying it will happen, but it's not out the of realm of possibility.

Yeah, but you can watch full episodes for free on comedy central's website and I'm pretty sure I can get them for free on VOD from my TV provider (Sezmi).

Playon has it free, so from WDTV it works free and same form in a little box to your tv. Seagate has a same setup....Roku needs to make more deals for media or make their box DLNA - Playon compatible to stay competitive.

And on HuluPlus to boot, so you can watch it via your Roku.

Confirmed. Thanks for posting. I had LONG AGO given up on finding The Daily Show or The Cobert Report on Hulu and have been watching it in Boxee. This is a GREAT move and is bringing me back to Hulu Plus!
