Didn't realize there might be a legal issue. I change my reaction to "Not-awesome channel and I un-thank you for the heads up."
Yeah, sorry about that. I will be much more wary of the Roku.com newsletter listed private channels from now on.
It's NOT the roku.com newsletter... it's a knock off site that wants to make you believe it's a roku.com newsletter and apparently it's working perfectly, but why do you or anyone else care where your content comes from? Really cr@ppy content likely comes from here: www.archive.org..
. it's all free and there are plenty of channels streaming that stuff and charging you for it. In my mind that's criminal, but nobody says a word about that.
If it's free... install it and watch it and keep it on the down-low. If and when they get a take down notice it will go away and another one will pop up in it's place.
It's like playing whack-a-mole. Enjoy the mole until it gets whacked, then enjoy the next mole. If a channel streaming 40's and 50's movies in eye-blistering HD showed up for free as a private channel the LAST place I'd come to broadcast it's availability would be the Roku Forums. I'd just quietly watch it until it went away. I don't care where the content came from, but if it's passing before my eyes and my eyes happen to see it... there you go... you can't unsee something, so enjoy.
