Unless I've misunderstood what the poster is asking for, NFB has been available on NowhereTV for a month or so already.
Actually, it's been available on NowhereTV for over two years. I requested it around the same time I posted a request for an official channel and RokuChris was kind enough to add it at that time.
As I pointed out in my original response, NowhereTV only makes the RSS feeds available. A channel from NFB would likely make the rest of its content available like they do on iOS.
I do use NFB on NowhereTV but given the choice, I'd much prefer an official channel that has more content available. That's just me, however. Others may be fine with only the RSS content and that's OK, too. I imagine it depends upon your viewing habits. I watch the channel frequently and keep up with NFB's newsletters. Unfortunately, not everything they recommend is available in the feeds.
IMHO NowhereTV is still one of the best things on Roku.
I wholeheartedly agree with this! NowhereTV is one of the most used channels on my Roku. RokuChris did a fantastic job with it along with the other private channels he wrote
. I especially like that you can add external content to the Favorites, as long as Roku supports it
. If you're curious what other content is available, click on this link
to bring you to a page that lists all current content. RokuChris keeps the list up-to-date.
I've always thought it's a shame that NowhereTV is not an official channel. I do realize that Roku Newscaster is the official version and NowhereTV is Roku Newscaster on steroids but I still wish it were an official channel. It has so much to offer to every group, not just "news geeks," and I think people end up missing out because they don't realize it's available or those that do, don't realize what content is available and that you can add your own.
I remember when Roku used to advertise the private YouTube channel (no longer available for install) on their website. If they don't already do the same for NowhereTV, I wish they would. Maybe they could offer a choice between Roku Newscaster and NowhereTV when customers first set up their Rokus via the web?
I'll stop there. This is supposed to be a topic about an NFB channel after all!
