CCTV as a private channel?

Sun Oct 17, 2010 2:12 pm

I'm a newbie to Roku and this forum.This is an amazing little gadget.CCTV the official TV news of China used to be on Direct TV and was removed about a year ago. Although it's content is mostly propaganda, (some of it a bit crude) I enjoyed watching it, if for no other reason, it was interesting to see what slant China was taking on world events. This station is currently streamed online.I don't understand how a private channel becomes a private channel, but is CCTV a possibility for Roku and if so how does this happen? Thanks.

Post the link. There are a number of talented users here that seem to be able to whip up private channels in no time if the stream is in a Roku compatible format.

If you are interested in news from foreign sources to get a different take on world events, checkout MHz Networks. They have news shows from France (France24), Russia (RT), India (Asian News International) and Al Jazeera (Middle East).

It looks like they use Windows Media for their stream, which, unfortunately isn't supported by the Roku.

Speaking of Fox News. I saw that is still listed on the Private Channels list on roku-channels.com.


Is this an actual channel by itself, or is it just included in Newscaster?


I'm not a fan of Fox News, but I could always use a good laugh to get my day going!
If it doesn't work, keep beating it with the hammer till it does.
