All i saw was some sort of arab stuff.
No thanks not interested in that at all.
I sure hope ROKU comes up with better then that.
Smugmug is very well done. Good for people who have or know people who have accounts so they can see photos on their TV. Also good for amateur photographers to get ideas on a subject.
DreamTV. Not for everyone (including me) but it's certainly not limited to Arab material - not that there is anything wrong with that.
Agreed. In fact, it is probably a good thing to get more varied content.
While I wouldn't call DreamTV premium content, it certainly isn't terrible. I have watched a few of the interviews on Vator.TV - in the Technology section - and they are fairly well produced with some interesting guests. I thought the one with Guy Kawasaki, a well known venture capitalist, was pretty good.
I think everyone is hopeful that Roku is able to land providers such as Showtime, Disney, etc. and I have no doubt they are working toward that end. However, I think it is great that they are mixing the likes of Netflix, MLB and Amazon with stuff like Blip.TV and DreamTV.
Roku's CEO Anthony Wood has stated that they plan to have ~100 channels by year end. There are currently 15 channels in the store, which means they will be adding an average of 7.7 channels a month between now and the end of the year. My guess is that most of those will be more similar to DreamTV than Netflix. However, it is almost certain that channels that most consider "premium" will be sprinkled in the mix. At the end of the day a lot of people will not care for channels like DreamTV; however, a fair number will.
