Re: NHL Gamecenter Live

Just signed up for GameCenter LIve for the first time (and as a new Roku user!) I'll also be using it on a variety of iOS devices (AppleTV, iPad, iPhone), but the Roku in our basement workout area gets a ton of use. Has anybody been able to authenticate it? I got the service working on the PC and i...

Re: NHL Gamecenter Live

I'm sorry...but I don't get the reason to jump ship. If the full season price is $160, and a 48 game season is 58 percent..then the 'full' price for 58% of a season would be $92. So what they are offering is almost a 50% savings off of that. I tend to agree. $50 seems like more than a fair price.

Re: International Channels now useless for many of us...

The big unknown there is why they were dropped? Did Dish say no because they already carry the same content, or did Mela choose not to work with Dish? It could be that Dish is exercising their exclusivity right (worst case), or it could be that there are some DMCA concerns with the content, or it c...

Re: International Channels now useless for many of us...

One common thing I'm seeing in all of these complaints is that the developers who are complaining haven't actually spoken to Dish or Roku about their channels. The main developer discussed in that article confirmed that he hasn't heard back from Dish, yet. It sounds like there's a whole lot of assu...

Re: International Channels now useless for many of us...

Hopefully Roku will at least allow the international/foreign language channels they'll be removing to continue as private channels in the future. [EDIT]Nevermind. Just read in the developer's forum that even private channel's with international content will need Roku/DISH's approval. Publishing a pr...

That's not entirely true. There are several live news channels available (CNN International, BBC, Fox News, RT America, Al-Jazeera, etc).

Re: Nowhere TV

Nowhere TV is completely safe. The author of the channel (Nowhereman/RokuChris) is actually a Roku employee, if that makes you feel any better.

Re: Is there LIVE constant streaming news on Roku..???

CNN International and BBC are available. You can get them as individual private channels, or both are available in Nowhere TV. Here are the private channel codes: Nowhere TV: https://owner.roku.com/Account/ChannelCode/?code=H9DWC CNN International: https://owner.roku.com/Account/ChannelCode/?code=CN...

Re: Potential Roku Channel, WeatherNation TV

They are not live. Only live during severe weather. They record segments to a video server which assembles them in the proper playing order and then airs the segment in order. Thanks for the correction. Even if it's not "live", video forecasts and such would be still be an improvement and...

Re: Potential Roku Channel, WeatherNation TV

I guess more is better but, there are already several good weather channels, public and private. I know there are several weather "channels" for the Roku already, but they are all just weather information. I think the point of this thread is that Weather Nation TV is an actual 24/7 live v...
