Also new ones are being added all the time so the list would obsolete within a day or two.
I recommend you just an eye on the people creating the channels and see what they post.

Frankly I think Roku has botched the potential of the channel store. It is a great idea, and clearly there are people who want to make channels, but since the majority of the available channels are private, most users don't know about them. So there is no critical mass to build upon. Instead it flounders with the same offerings for months on end.

What has this to do with Roku why a channel is private?
Any channel creator can request to have their channel made public by contacting Roku.
You only need to have your channel tested and verified by Roku then it is made public.
Don't blame Roku for this.
Ask the channel creators why their channels are only private.

How would anyone know?
I've seen probably 2 dozen or so floating around privately.

But it should still be required to go through the channel store. This ad hoc channel BS means no one knows what's out there and the channel store is pointless. The exact opposite to Apple's App store.
