Is there a channel for history channel and discovery channel for the roku?

I found them on playon, but not on roku.

Please advise

Plex has the history channel...but like playon you have to run a server.

Were not sure what you mean by that. i'm running the plex server and have everything up and running. how would i add the history channel to the plex server?

playon has a history channel (and discovery channel), so i was looking for the equivalent on the plex. it looks like many of the links that list all the plex channels are way out of date. it still lists youtube as having a channel, but its been pulled some time ago. the list shows discovery and history channel availability, but i can find anyone that knows how to get them connected.

so in the end, we got conflicting data concerning the matter. i get the feeling its a "no go".

It would be best to ask that on the Plex forum. Also note that PlayOn is not supported by Roku. PlayOn discussion here will result in a locked thread.

No, PlayOn is NOT supported by Roku but is available as a private channel. Ask any Roku employee and they will tell you the same. Threads discussing PlayOn are usually locked fairly quickly.

YouTube is there also (but is having problems)...read this thread about 'Unsupported Appstore'...than download the '3rdParty-Plugin.bundle.zip'...(you will also find porn channels, but they're hidden in the app folder..not with other channels.)

maybe i should just say the following. i have playon running from my roku without any issues. setup was that same as any other application that i've tried to add. it was a breeze to install and works flawlessly.

sorry about any confusion....
