I just read the following comment on the Vanderbilt University chat board.
"While it's unhelpful for most of the football season, ESPN3 will be viewable via an Xbox sometime in November."
Any plans to have it on the Roku?
Since the XBox is, I believe, DLNA compliant ESPN3 has been available on it via PlayOn since just before the World Cup earlier this year.
However the Roku is not, at this time, DLNA compliant so PlayOn does not work with it.
But, I believe that if a developer was to want to then they could write a ch for ESPN3 on the Roku. Of course the only people that would get ESPN3 would be the ones whose ISP has an agreement with ESPN/ABC to allow access.
I, for one, would find it a useful addition.
