Yep, it appears dead as it shows zero content under "featured."

I wonder where the JTV streamers are headed off to now? There's ustream and livestream, but will the JTV streamers migrate there?

SO....is there anything similar to Justintv? Ustream and livestream are NOT similar in my opinion...I use to watch ghost adventures on there, home improvement and big bang....and they had a great kids tv stream that had kids movies...:(

kinda thinking about giving up my roku now...I really liked being able to watch a continuous stream when I went to bed

You could always stare through your neighbor's windows at whatever they're watching - similar quality and selection.

I gave up on Justin TV long ago but they shut it because there were not enough viewers and to focus on Twitch:

Hi:

This really sucks!!! Probably the most used "Live" channel on my Roku. Was great to have a continuous stream of Big Bang, Ancient Aliens and other mainstream TV content and movies. Sometimes not the best quality but only free channel with mainstream TV and Cable content.

Was great to watch Big Bang on off-hours and other cable shows without ads. Was great for binge watching. Will have to get used to using Netflix and Hulu Plus again with continuos play to replace what I would watch on justin. For Big Bang I may have to resort to DVRing by now adding a Smart Recording/Season pass for it.

Maybe we can help each other here. Tell us what you would watch the most on Justin and we can share as to where can we watch it now on Roku (alternate sources).

With Google forking over a ridiculous amount of money for Twitch, it's not surprising he ditched the illegal side business. Nothing sours a billion dollar deal like potential law suits.

I never understood why Roku allowed the Justin TV channel which was blatantly distributing content they obviously did not own. I guess if the illegally distributed content comes and goes and other amateur content is available Roku just looks the other way.

Yea how dare that evil Google company shutdown our free illegally distributed videos! It's as bad as the evil government taking away our unemployment benefits after 2 years.

We live in a pathetic time , where everyone wants everything for nothing. Unlimited entitlement and no self responsibility...
