@Flournoy3.. I saw your post. We have launched TCN as a private channel while we complete the beta testing. We are now submitting the public channel for approval to be included in the Channel Store; however, to watch the beta simply follow the link... https://owner.roku.com/add/TCN

Please enjoy and, as it is a Beta, please provide feedback.

Best

Anyone else having a problem with this channel? It's stuck in a loop on the same song. Been like that for a couple of days.

But there is only one country song. ;)

Problems like this are usually best addressed by contacting the ch developers. You can try removing and readding the ch but I doubt that will fix the issue in this case however it is one thing that has helped with other chs.

Currently The Country Network is running two separate Private Roku channels. The feed originates from a different source for each channel so that we can discover which delivery method provides the greatest up time and quality.

Having said this, we have finally completed the test, added VOD and search capabilities and are ready to launch the first version in the store this week. What is exciting, from a tech standpoint, is this feed is a true linear scheduled playout providing comprehensive management, monetization and measurement of the unique stream. Meaning, we can schedule traditional broadcast commercials and insert VAST compliant ads from ad networks in the same stream. From a programming point, we will provide viewers the ability to request videos and, in real time, schedule those videos into the stream (complete with the request from the viewer). We will also air live feeds from venues, events, interviews, etc... all exclusive to our Roku Channel. Additionally, the viewers will now have the ability to watch any number of sub genres (80's country, legends country, cool country, etc...) all live and all from the same app.

If you want to see the pre-release private Roku Channel it is available at https://owner.roku.com/add/KITD (or https://owner.roku.com/add/BSN8Q not sure there is a difference or not, try 1st URL first). This has only the first live channel, VOD and your favorites page but you will see where things are going.

We are excited to go live and hope you enjoy the experience!

Best

Hey TCN,

Like the new channel. The only thing I see at the moment that would be nice is a Play All button. Love the mix of ondemand and live.

Thanks!

Just checked out the TCN private channel after seeing mention this week in The Roku Guide. Although there are still some glitches with the channel it did play videos and played them all the way through for me. The advertisements were a bit glitchy. Starting and stopping but eventually make it through and allow the video to play. I would hope that the 1 add for 1 vid play will not be the final setup for this channel as this is a bit heavy. No other channel that I know of makes you watch an add for every 3 minutes of video. But maybe that will be tweaked in the future.

Features that I would like to see include favorites list. A continuous replay button.

Good work on the channel and hope to see it in the channel store in the future along with some improvements.

Thumbs up and thanks for what could potentially be one of the better channels on the Roku.
