ESPN3.com on the Roku Player (formerly known as ESPN360.com)

Wed Apr 14, 2010 6:39 am

Hi all I am VERY interested in seeing more LIVE content for the Roku player. Especially sports. I have searched but was not able to find much information about being about to get ESPN3.com formerly known as ESPN360.com on my Roku. It seems like this would be a reasonable request since it is a free service for users with compatable ISP's. I currently have AT&T Uverse and in the past had AT&T DSL and have always used the service via a computer hooked up to my TV. ESPN3.com provides LIVE sporting events such as MLB, NBA, NHL, Tennis, Soccer, and the ALL MIGHTY NCAA Football. This would be the most welcome channel possible for the Roku which in my mind is a replacement for having to have a computer hooked directly to the TV to stream content not available on my local OTA or TV provider.

Currently there is a thread posted over at the boxee forums from a developer who is working on providing the BOXEE community with this exact service. Currently boxee is being run on the Apple TV unit which is basicly the same thing as a Roku with a $200+ price tag.

Can someone please let us know the future of seeing more LIVE content such as ESPN3.com on the Roku player.


Thank You

UH Boxee has its own box called the Boxee Box. Apple Tv is something completely different and its only $99. And you really dont understand the way the world works if you think all thats involved is just building a channel and its done. Xbox 360 is the only machine that has it right now for a reason. Why dont you do a bit of Googling before you post again.

Calm down Matt.

What he is refering to is they have the boxee software running on an Apple TV unit. He's not refering to the Boxee BOX. A user is working on a channel that streams ESPN3(assuming your provider supports the channel). This same channel also DOES work on the BOX, however it's got some bugs that need to be worked out(VERY slow starting and can't get it full screen on the box).

It would definitely be a welcome addition to Roku.

FYI, the original post is from April of 2010. At that time boxee didn't have its own box and the Apple TV (1st Gen) was $200+.

Guys, you can get ESPN3 through the PlayOn Channel. Yea, it's not Xbox 360 goodness and PlayOn is a one-time charge of $79.99, but you also can use the service on iPad, iPhone, Android, and Xbox, Ps3, etc.

Too much hassle for me, I'll just keep watching on my laptop.

Roku frowns on PlayOn discussion here. Usually the thread gets locked.

Actually, you can also get ESPN3 on the PS3 via ps3mediaserver so maybe you need to use google before you post again.

You know what I meant West Ham. Im talking about an actual application idiot. PS3 doesnt have an actual espn3 channel or app. Just like I can watch hulu through playon on my xbox but its not a supported application. You really are stupid.

PlayOn discussion + personal attacks = locked thread
