A MummyVision Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku - Day #13 CRYPTIC CROSSWORDS? HOW 'BOUT CRYPTIC TV ?!

Welcome back, Boils & Ghouls !!

There's now just 18 days remaining in the Countdown To Hallowe'en 2013 which must mean that we have now reached day thirteen of "A MummyVision Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku", my month-long blogathon, which culminates on 31st October 2013. In case you missed the previous instalments, this series of posts began with details of a Hallowe'en ScreamSaver, complete with spooky soundtrack, followed by a Roku channel dedicated to Vintage Horror Classics, then some Hallowe'en "How-To" videos, a Roku channel for fans of the paranormal and then another for devotees of independent horror. After that came a channel dedicated to the open discussion of UFO's and UFO-related activities plus a further selection of Cult Films, Sci-Fi Classics & Vintage Horror. Since then, we've provided details of a Roku channel brimming with creepy cocktail suggestions, another with more classic Hallowe'en movie choices, and then details of a Roku channel that mixes paranormal reality tv shows with powerful documentaries, mysteries, conspiracy theories, UFO's and much more besides. The last two instalments have seen more Horror, Sci-Fi & Fantasy movies on one channel plus some Hallowe'en / Horror-themed music courtesy of a Roku radio channel. Today we bring you details of a live-streaming horror channel, to add yet another dynamic to the Hallowe'en entertainment on your Roku players ahead of the frightful festivities coming your way on October 31st !!

It probably comes as no surprise to you, that this horror movie-based Roku channel can be found in the "Film & TV" genre (i.e. category) of the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store (or, "Movies & TV", for those of you in the USA). If you haven't heard of Cryptic Television before, it describes itself as the premiere FREE online horror channel, offering not only the best horror movies available online - ALL FREE - but also the most interesting and intense original programming. You can watch all the movies in their FULL glory, as the creators originally intended, each one 100% complete & without being edited down or chopped to death by the FCC and other censorship bodies. It really is the best place to find feature-length horror movies, plus B-rated and independent horror films in a live-streaming format, not just online, but now on your Roku player too. Throw in the ADDED BONUS of original programming and you have one of the best horror rides on any streaming media player. 

If you would like to see a BROADCAST SCHEDULE for whatever is live streaming on this Roku channel at any given time, you can easily do so VIA THIS LINK. Scroll down the webpage and you will clearly see the current LIVE STREAM which is always (very helpfully) HIGHLIGHTED IN RED and makes watching the "Cryptic Television" channel on Roku a much easier & more pleasurable experience. Outside of whichever programme is the current 'Live Stream', you would do well to remember that ALL TIMINGS on the "Cryptic Television" broadcast schedule are GMT -6 hours so, to calculate the UK time for whatever you want to watch, you will need to ADD SIX HOURS to the time shown in the "Cryptic Television" broadcast schedule. For example, if the programme you want to watch is shown in the schedule as airing between 14:00:00 and 16:00:00 (i.e. from 2pm to 4pm) then it will be on between 20:00:00 and 22:00:00 (i.e. 8pm to 10pm) in the UK.


EXTRA HINT: For a more general overview of the types of programming that are being carried on "Cryptic Television", you can simply click in the box marked "Select date..." (just above the current daily schedule) and pick another date from the pop-up calendar, then press the "Submit" button, to see a list of programmes shown on your chosen date. This works for both past and future content, to a greater or lesser extent. It does, however, always provide you with the latest information available.


It may further interest you to know that, according to the channel description for 'Cryptic Television' taken from the Official Roku Website, the channel's content providers are also responsible for the development of the 'Cryptic Television' horror channel on Roku so, obviously, their talents don't just end with providing feature-length movies, plus B-rated and independent films to fulfil your horror needs. Meanwhile, if you'd like to discover more about the 'Cryptic Television' live-streaming horror movie channel on Roku, you can visit their Official Website VIA THIS LINK. You can also connect with 'Cryptic Television' via their Twitter Feed: @CrypticTV or else, get social with them through: Cryptic Television (Facebook)

Those of you who wish to add this channel to the Hallowe'en-themed entertainment on your Roku player(s) but are, perhaps, unable to access the Channel Store on your device at this precise moment... can also take care of things by simply LOGGING-IN to your Online Roku Account, scrolling down to the 'Manage Account' section, and using the "Add a Private Channel" option. That way, when you do have access to your Roku player, the 'Cryptic Television' horror channel will be there ready for you to watch whenever you so choose !! All you must do to achieve this, is type the following access code under "Add a Private Channel" and click the blue 'Add Channel' button:-

ACCESS CODE:- cryptictv

Anyway, that's pretty much all there is to it, except to point out that the 'Cryptic Television' horror channel has been given an average score of "3.5 out of 5" from 583 ratings (so far) in the channel store description from the Official Roku Website. That statistic alone should be reason enough to give this a try, never mind that ALL THE FILMS ARE FREE TO WATCH  and un-censored too !!

Having said that, if this particular Hallowe'en / Horror themed Roku channel was not to your liking then FEAR NOT because there will be another one featured in tomorrow's post, continuing the month-long blogathon that is: "A MummyVision Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku"which will bring you more devilish delights EACH AND EVERY DAY from now UNTIL HALLOWE'EN and when you're done with this blog, don't forget to visit the other contributors to the 2013 Countdown To Hallowe'en and see what Hallowe'en treats they have in store for you between now and 31st October !!

Fangs again, for stopping by !!
