Plans for Roksbox
Roksbox is planning on becoming a public channel sometime in early August (upon approval of Roku). As a result, there will be a couple of changes to Roksbox. First, registering Roksbox (also known as linking) with your Roku player will be required. This will be similar to other channels that require registration. You will create an account on the Roksbox website and enter a registration code generated from Roksbox. Once you create an account, this account can be used to register any other Roku players in your household, and any other future Roku players that you want to run Roksbox on. Second, beginning August 1, there will be a one-time, non recurring registration fee. This fee is needed to help pay for the Roksbox website, and continued development of Roksbox.
For everyone who registers before August 1, there will be no registration fee. I want Roksbox to remain free for everyone who has already been using it, and who has been so helpful in its development. Registration will begin on Saturday, July 17. When you first use Roksbox beginning July 17, you will be given instructions on how to register. If you register as a private channel, your registration will carry over to the public channel.
You will have 30 days to register from the first time you use Roksbox (beginning July 17). For new people, this will give them time to evaluate Roksbox and decide if it does what they are looking for.
Roksbox will continue to be developed as it has in the past. The new website should provide opportunities for better support. It will start out fairly simple, but will evolve as time goes on.
Don't forget to register before August 1.
As always, comments and suggestions are welcomed.
