The MyRadar App on FireTV, as you know, is a Radar App all others on Roku should aspire to be.
If there is such an animal on Roku - I too would love to know about it.

I use the one on my phone, or MyRadar on FireTV, cause frankly, there ain't any on Roku I've found worth taking up a channel slot.
If I wanted radar graphics from the 80s I'd fire up the old PC-JR and (try to) play Quake (original).

I second that. I have MyRadar on my Fire stick and my phone. By far the best radar app out for Android based devices. Nothing on Roku comes close.
Yeah, I got some Rokus.

If anyone could have directed us to a nice radar app, it would have been you.

I have WeatherNation on my Rokus, and it does offer a weather radar display. However, it seems to have gone downhill since I'd last used it. It now starts with an ad, and it takes a long time for the radar display to update when I zoom in. But at least it's something.

Looking in the channel store there appears to be quite a number of weather options. Weather HD appears interesting, but of course it's a subscription.

Weather Nation is ate up with the volume disaster dumass syndrome:
Normal -sometimes
Ads/Random - 400+db breaks my eardrums and blows me through the bay window.

I stopped installing WN a year or two ago when it became fairly obvious they just didn't give a ****.
