So we could watch some of their movies and shows from the roku.

Thanks.


You should contact the Logo folks and apprise them of the Roku SDK. Perhaps they will develop a channel for the Roku DVP.

I could be wrong but I don't see ROKU offering this channel in their store. It may work as a private channel like the other one so email the LOGO people and ask if they are willing.

Logo is the gay channel right? it's not porn is it? why would Roku not put it in the channel store? it's kind of a big name right? bigger than dream tv or whatever those 2 other new ones are

Like I said I could be wrong but my guess is that most parents wouldn't want this in the ROKU channel store.

That's the beauty of of the option to choose the channel vs NOT choose the channel, senorgregster.

BTW, this is gay & lesbian related shows, not gay & lesbian porn, and this IS the year 2010.

What do you think Bravo and LOGO are, anyway? They're both available on Cable and Satellite, and clearly both are geared towards gay/lesbian lifestyle..

I'm a straight guy, but I don't see the big deal- LOGO isn't obscene.. It's sitcoms, dramas and documentaries geared towards the gay/lesbian scene.

To me it'd be the equivalent of not allowing a BET because it's geared toward African American people.. I don't get it. I thought society was beyond that kind of discrimination.

Bravo? Only gays and lesbians watch Top Chef, Real Housewifes, Inside the Actor's Studio, Millionaire Matchmaker, America's Next Top Model, etc. etc. etc?

I think you're thinking of a different channel.

Let me rephrase.. Bravo doesn't explicitly market towards gays/lesbians, but the few gay friends I have love that channel. Maybe it's coincidence, but since it's an "Arts" channel and many gays are drawn to the arts, it might have something to do with it.

Ok.. but I don't think Bravo is actively marketing themselves as a gay channel like Logo does. That's like saying Versus is a straight channel cause straight men love sports.

I think the larger point - on which I agree with jeffrok - is that just because a channel is marketed toward a certain demographic or preferred by a certain demographic, should not exclude it from inclusion in the channel store. If some people are a little sensitive to a gay and lesbian channel, they should first, join us in the 21st century and second, not add such a channel should and if it becomes available.

While I agree that Bravo does not actively market itself as a gay and lesbian channel, they certainly have more shows and personalities than other channels that attract that demographic.

Roku does not want any adult related content straight or gay.
If the content is gay related and is not of the adult nature then I think Roku will be okay with it.

The bigger issue here is this: Logo and all related marks and designs are trademarks of Viacom Internation Inc.

Remember the big studio issue everyone has?

Absolutely. Even if the executives at Logo wanted to create a Roku channel, Viacom would probably not be supportive.

I personally would LOVE the Lego channel. I like the new games they made such as Lego Indiana Jones and Lego Batman. I also grew up playing with legos.

Wait, I think I misread something ;)

Comparing this to Bravo is hilarious.

By the way, I have no objection to the content myself. I could care less what other people watch, it's not my business. Actually there is a at least one show in their line up that I know my household would watch.

What is the issue with making channels "private". Its a great way for ROKU to distance themselves from what a lot of people would call questionable content and at the exact same time provide the content to those who want it. Its a win win situation.
