I'll second that. Pandora's ok, but I would love to be able to listen to my Slacker stations!

While Roku is doing some internal development on channels, a lot of channels are being created by the content providers themselves.

I'd send this request to slacker.com themselves and let them know there is an SDK available for channel development.

I agree that slacker.com is better than pandora, however as long as we are requesting internet radio I have to throw in grooveshark.com. It is by far the best that I have used so far. It would be great to have more than one option.

I would second grooveshark.com. In my oppinion it's the best I've found. I've sent two emails to them about the SDK, I suggest anyone that would like to see it as a channel email them as well. Eventually they may take notice.

A Slacker channel would need to be developed in partnership with Slacker. So, unless Slacker is willing to create a channel on their own or let Roku create it for them, there isn't much hope. I would think they would want that though.

It seems they are releasing an "all you can eat" subscription plan soon. On top of the sub plans they already have. It also looks like some Mog folks are going to leave Mog for the new Slacker "all you can eat" plan. Does Slackers audio format work on the roku ?

I pay for MOG and Slacker but would drop MOG if Slacker has something similar up its sleeves AND offers a Roku app. I would think that they would be particularly motivated now that Roku is making its platform available for integration with other hardware.
