Nowhereman/RokuChris may well have just decided that maintaining an app like NowhereTV is just a LOT more trouble than it is worth. He also could have decided that dealing with Roku at any level is also not worth the trouble. Or he could have decided that both or some amount of both are the problem.
Personally I do not blame him at all.
There are reasons that a lot of us that were very active earlier in Roku's history are no longer as active. Roku has shown that their interest and care about their customers no longer matters at all. All they care about is making money and are rapidly becoming or have already become what to Henry Ford is a poor business:
"A business that makes nothing but money is a poor business." Henry Ford
While Roku has, and probably always will, make, or at least sell, a hardware box, that box is rapidly becoming less and less relevant to their business model.
I have six different Rokus but I have stopped using them for most of my streaming as I find that the moves they have made are detrimental to what I want/need in a streaming box. It is no wonder that a lot of the more creative developers are abandoning Roku or reducing their presence in the Roku world.
That is not to say that the rest of the streamers are much better but the Shield and the Fire, mostly the Shield, do have some advantages over Roku and they do not suffer as much from indifference to the needs of the user as much as Roku does.
If I were developing for the Roku environment I would be seriously be looking to move elsewhere.
