thanks for your feedback and great to hear that you like the channel.

IMHO, it comes down to 2 questions:
1. Are the videos encoded in a format supported by Roku (see EncodingGuide that's included with the SDK)?
2. What are the options for "content discovery": RSS, XML, JSON, etc?
You could "scrape" video-links out of the HTML but this is pretty cumbersome and fragile.
Fortunately tagesschau provides a JSON-API, for example for the "Dossier" Videos I'm parsing http://www.tagesschau.de/api/multimedia ... er100.json
Unfortunately my spare time is somewhat limited these days and I won't have time for developing any other channels,
but I hope this provides some background information.
