Roku UK Channel Store - Weekly RoundUp #216





Hi, everyone !!



Whatever else happened, in terms of Roku-specific and/or Roku-related news, during the past seven days since my previous 'Weekly RoundUp' post was published... there was one piece of news which stood out from the rest by far and pretty much dominated my Twitter Feed: @ukrokuchannels for most of the day on Thursday 27th April 2017 - a day which will go down in streaming history as the time that 'TVPlayer' came to Roku devices in the UK - as evidenced by the publicity shot below:-






There is so much live-streaming content available to UK Roku users, through this one channel, that I would say it is AN ESSENTIAL ADDITION FOR EVERY UK ROKU USER and strongly suggest that you add it to the channel selection on your own Roku streaming devices as soon as possible...


"Why is that?", you may ask... well, with no less than 68 FREE CHANNELS covering a wide content spectrum of well-known channels (think, "Freeview", here) you will be able to live-stream many UK Over-The-Air (OTA) broadcasts on your Roku streaming media player(s). On top of all that, for a low monthly fee of just £5.99 PER MONTH, you can gain access to 24 PREMIUM CHANNELS which brings the total number of live-streaming channels within the 'TVPlayer' app for Roku devices in the UK up to a very impressive 92 CHANNELS OF LIVE-STREAMING CONTENT that are available to every UK Roku user, if they so choose. Perhaps best of all, at least for the sports fans among you, is that BOTH 'EUROSPORT 1' AND 'EUROSPORT 2' ARE NOW AVAILABLE ON ROKU and, at just £5.99 per month, that makes a subscription to 'TVPlayer Plus' even more worthwhile! ;-) :-)


To give you a better idea of the range of live-streaming channels available via the 'TVPlayer' app for UK Roku devices, I've produced the following chart which includes thumbnail-style icons for both the 68 "Free Channels" as well as the 24 "Plus Channels" that can be accessed on Roku in the UK:-

Just so you are aware, there are a number of additional channels (both 'free' and 'premium' varieties) which are not available on the Roku platform (due to licensing restrictions) but these channels can still be enjoyed online, via the 'TVPlayer' website, as well as on Apple (iOS) and Android mobile devices if you have access to those. I've also produced a "mock-up" specific to Roku devices, which I based on the 'Amazon Fire TV' availability listing from the 'TVPlayer' website, that includes details of the various 'free' and 'premium' (i.e. 'Plus' designated) channels that are unavailable on Roku:-




AS BEFORE:- Please CLICK on the above image TO ENLARGE IT for easier viewing !!



Unfortunately, as mentioned in a previous post (as well as via social media) the new 'TVPlayer' app for UK Roku devices is NOT AVAILABLE ON NOWTV BOXES which is yet another reason why you should seriously consider upgrading to a genuine Roku-branded device, if you haven't done so already. It is still not known whether the "missing" channels (outlined above) are being withheld from Roku as part of an agreement over the future 'UKTV' app for NowTV Boxes... but what is clear, from my communications with 'TVPlayer' in recent weeks, is that 'TVPlayer' is for UK Roku devices only.


Hopefully, those in charge at 'UKTV' will see the light (as in, knowing that any Roku channel which works on a NowTV Box will also work on Roku devices) and submit their (currently in development) app for NowTV Boxes for inclusion in the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store at the same time. For, in my opinion, not to do so would be a tremendous oversight on their part. However, if their channel for 'UKTV Play' does not surface on UK Roku devices (as well as NowTV Boxes), let's hope that an agreement can be reached for 'TVPlayer' to then start carrying those "missing" channels so that Roku users in the UK are also able to access all of the 'UKTV' content that is available on NowTV Boxes!


Meanwhile, it seems Sky / NowTV have (at least) come up with some sort of compensation for the absence of 'TVPlayer' on NowTV Boxes by adding another channel to the "Roku-Powered" channel store (or, "App Store", as they call it) on their own-brand of streaming media players. In case you did not spot it, you will find that the 'STV Player' channel for UK Roku devices (which was released around six weeks ago) has now found it's way onto NowTV Boxes. Here's the channel icon to look out for... and you will find it listed among the "Film & TV" channels on NowTV Boxes:-






Perhaps more significantly, the addition of 'STV Player' to NowTV Boxes means that the total number of Roku channels in the 'App Store' is now back to fifty. Considering this is the exact same amount as were featured on the original (white) streaming media player from NowTV, when it first launched (almost) four years ago now, it doesn't really do much to improve the (lack of) appeal these boxes have for me (despite still owning several of them) and, as it stands, the only purpose they serve is for streaming the odd boxing match once every few months because Sky / NowTV have, in their infinite (lack of) wisdom, decided not to add their 'Sky Sports Box Office' app (which is no more than a Roku channel anyway) to the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store. Personally, I don't see how this does them any favours... because, to my mind, they're just missing-out on (as yet) untapped income from UK Roku users which could easily add to their profit margin - if they were to add the box office app from NowTV Boxes to Roku streaming media players in the UK. Frankly, it's a bit of a pain having to use my NowTV device(s) just for this one 'Sky Sports Box Office' app... and I'd much rather Sky do the right thing and ask NeuLion Inc (developer of the 'Sky Sports Box Office' app) to clone it for submission to the Roku UK Channel Store - I mean, they're getting money for the event(s) from anyone who makes a purchase... so what do they care if their profits come from NowTV Box owners or users of UK Roku devices, many of whom are likely to want access to these events?! :-/


Anyway, given the huge significance of the new 'TVPlayer' channel for UK Roku users, I have decided to break with (my own) protocol and bump the details for this essential app to the top of my list of latest additions to the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store. Had I not chosen to do so, it would otherwise have been "buried" towards the very end of what can only be described as an absolutely MAMMOTH LIST of new channels. After that... it's business as usual and, as has often been the case of late, the list of new additions (once again) continues with a few more channels that, despite being new to UK Roku devices, are not listed in the "New" category (i.e. genre) of the Roku UK Channel Store. Blogging specifically about Roku streaming devices & other Roku-related matters, I love discovering apps like these... because they illustrate precisely why it's worth reading the 'Weekly RoundUp' posts on my blog. Any Roku users who simply rely on whatever they see listed under the "New" category in the built-in channel store of their streaming media players (to identify the latest apps for UK Roku devices) risk missing-out on channels like this altogether. Other websites offering Roku channel listings will base their contents on the Roku USA Channel Store, which means they also include apps that are unavailable to Roku UK users. So, if you really want to know what's available to UK Roku users channel-wise... be sure to read this blog every week! ;-) :-)


Given that there is such a large number of new channels this week, you will notice (in the latter part of this list) that there are some "missing" links to 'Roku Guide'  reviews. Needless to say, these will be added to this post just as soon as the details have been made known to me. Apologies for any inconvenience that may have been caused to you by their absence in the meantime! ;-) :-)


However, before I run through the new channels... a reminder that UK Roku users are still subject to restrictions (imposed by Roku) and (bizarrely) remain unable to access the channel descriptions from the web store on the Roku (USA) website. That said, the majority of text in those web listings can also be found within the individual descriptions from the built-in "Channel Store" (accessed via "Streaming Channels" from the main menu) on all Roku devices and, together with the associated screenshots (where available), should give a pretty good indication of what those channels are about.


My advice to any UK-based readers of this blog is to ignore the links below (and to the left of) each channel icon shown here and (instead) rely on the link to the right (below each channel icon) which (where available) will redirect you to an 'Roku Guide' review for additional details on that channel. As it stands, the links below (and to the left of) each icon are (currently) only of use to readers of this blog from the USA. This means that Roku users from the other "supported" regions of the world (i.e. Ireland, Canada, France and Mexico) are, like those of us in the UK, unable to browse the Roku Web Channel Store - which for now (at least) remains an exclusive privilege of Roku users in the USA. :-(


Hopefully Roku will (one day) wake-up to the fact that improving the experience for users in "other" Roku "regions" is just as important as it is for those who buy & use their products in the U.S. and denying access to the Roku website does not help the end-user experience for those of us (outside the USA) who wish to browse the web channel store. Meanwhile, that which Roku (apparently) doesn't want UK Roku users to see on their website (i.e. the list of new channels) is regularly summarised on this blog in my 'Weekly RoundUp' posts. So, without further ado, here's my 'Weekly RoundUp' of all the new Roku channels released between the 23rd and the 29th of April 2017:-





TVPLAYER.............COST: FREE + £5.99 PER MONTH (OPTIONAL) FOR 'PLUS' CHANNELS

***FILED UNDER: "FILM & TV" in Roku UK Channel Store WHEN FIRST RELEASED***

PLEASE NOTE:- That, since this 'TVPlayer' channel for UK Roku devices has not yet been released via the "Official" Roku USA Channel Store, there is no 'Roku Guide'  review for the channel. When I get more time, I'll add a few more details (including some useful links) to this post... but, for now at least, I suggest you visit the 'TVPlayer' website for more information. One thing I will say is that the 'Eurosport'  channels are excluded from any FREE TRIAL that may be offered by 'TVPlayer' so, if you wish to watch 'Eurosport 1' and/or 'Eurosport 2', you will need to opt-out of the trial and make an immediate payment to gain access to them. Anyone wishing to try 'TVPlayer Plus' can take advantage of the PROMO CODE: TWITTERTVP to get the first month free, followed by a second month at a discount of 50% (i.e. half-price) and, if you opt-out of the free month (to get 'Eurosport' on Roku) you will only be charged £2.99 initially... and then £5.99 per month going forward. If I hear of any other special offers and/or promotions for 'TVPlayer' on Roku, then I'll share them via Twitter (in the first instance) and may well include them in a future 'Weekly RoundUp' post, so be sure to keep an eye out for that (and more money-saving tips for UK Roku users) in the coming weeks! ;-) :-)

*********************************************



Anyhow, like it or not, that is your lot this week and, while it's barely more than eighty per cent of the one hundred and one channels which made it into the "Official" Roku USA Channel Store in the same time-frame, it's better to get 83 NEW CHANNELS than none at all... as I'm sure you'll agree?!


In any event, hopefully everyone in the UK with a Roku player managed to find something they like within the eighty-three "public" channels outlined above... or else from the "private" channels, whose access codes were "gifted" to you via the companion Twitter Feed: @ukrokuchannels to this blog, at various points throughout the past few weeks. However, if you didn't find anything to add to your Roku channel selection from the assortment of channels on offer this week, you can always pay us a visit another time when, with any luck, there will be something more to your liking. After all, there's no point installing every channel because, like I say... when it comes to adding new channels to your Roku, IT'S YOUR CHOICE and, as with all things Roku... THE CHOICE IS ALWAYS YOURS!




*********************************************



As mentioned previously, you can expect my usual summary of all the goings-on (or not) in the (severely restricted) Roku Channel Store (aka "App Store") that features on NowTV Boxes to follow in the near future. Meanwhile, whether you happen to own a Roku player, a NowTV Box, OR BOTH, as I do... be sure to check my earlier posts (as mentioned before) for all the new additions to the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store in each of the one hundred and forty-two preceding weeks and then come back again in seven days' time for my next 'Weekly RoundUp'. However, if you can't wait that long, remember you can always keep up with all the UK Roku action (as it happens) throughout the coming week, by following the companion Twitter Feed: @ukrokuchannels where up-to-the-minute info on all things Roku-related (here in the UK) is posted on a daily basis (well, almost).



Until the next time, then...



That's all folks !!
