These are just websites I found online to keep me entertained. You many want to go through the list and see what you like. I don't think any have Roku apps but maybe a few people on here would be willing to make an App for you. You can also ask the people who manage the channels if they would be making a Roku app soon.

Actually, quite a few have Roku channels, and content from many of the others is also available within other channels.

Guys and gals, please try to limit the amount of links you post to possible/factual content for the Roku. It becomes a nightmare for me trying to moderate when it's flagged as possible spam. Better to send the info via PM to "someone in the know" (in this case, Catastrophegirl), than to post it openly.

I'm content to let this one pass for now, since most of the links have been vetted, but in the future I reserve the right to furious moderation of such posts :)

I think your comment directed towards me. I also think this is unfair of you to post this as a user error when it is a forum error and chastise me for posting links. Other forums I use do not have this problem. The links were provided to answer the person's questions, not to troll or spam the forum. I did not know spamming was posting a bunch of useful links that may be beneficial to other users on this forum. I only posted one link and many of the posts were not promotional purposes. On other forums I visit spamming consists of posing several post about one subject, promoting a specific product or website for sales purposes, or bumping a post several uncessary times. Please post your definition of spamming in the post that outlines the rules.

The links may be beneficial to others who have cut the cord and use Roku as a subsitute for cable. There is no comprised list of these websites available on the web and through many hours of reseach, I was able to find the sites and make a posting of good recomendations. Also, the links may encourage people to create Roku channels are ask the websites to create channels for the Roku which is beneficial to both you and the forum users.

The I feel issue should not be addressed to a forum user as myself but to the people who created the Roku site. Also, how am I supposed to PM "someone in the know" when there is not a list. I am only able to see forum moderators. Catastrophegirl does not appear to be a forum moderator. Please post a list of "someone in the know" or an updated list of forum moderators to avoid future confusion. Also, please reflect the post of the forum rules to reflect these changes. The forum rules do not mention anything about posting multiple links in a post that are for nonpromotional purposes as spamming.

I wish you could stream Kylo.tv thru Roku. They need to make an app for that!

Hi All,

I'm new to Roku. Is it possible to watch Fox News Channel live in the evenings or only M-F 9-3? Where do I find the live stream?

If I can't watch it live, can any of the weeknight shows be found on Roku, like Hannity, O'Reilly (The Factor), On the Record?

Thank you for your help.

You can't watch the whole show but using this channel, you can watch the clips from the shows in the order of viewing by using the Play it forward feature of the channel. The clips of talking head panels usually don't make the cut, but the rest of the shows can be viewed.

Then you are overdoing it on moderation then and they need to find something else for you to do at Roku. The point of the forum is for others to benefit not to send private messages. Thankfully with 2747 views someone is getting value out of it. :-)

Kieranmullen: whether you agree with me or not, I don't care. We covered this in PMs last evening.

I have to vet every single link someone posts to insure the link is safe and not spoofed in some way, even if the link looks legit. Having dozens of links in a single post takes time away from helping people with real tech support issues, or from reporting to my superiors things they need to be aware of. My request is not up for debate.

Also, you are posting off topic to a thread, which violates our forum guidelines
