Welcome back, Boils & Ghouls !!
After a brief interlude for my regular 'Weekly RoundUp' of ALL the LATEST ADDITIONS to the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store, my focus has again returned to the Countdown To Hallowe'en for 2013 and my month-long blogathon, "A MummyVision Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku", is all set to continue with another Hallowe'en / Horror-themed channel that you can add to your Roku player(s). We're now on our sixth installment in this series of posts which began with details of a Hallowe'en ScreamSaver, complete with a 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 another for devotees of independent horror. Today, we continue with a Roku channel dedicated to the open discussion of UFO's and UFO-related activities. So if you happen to have a keen interest in, or are curious about, the existence of extra-terrestrial lifeforms and/or UFO's plus if you enjoy hearing eye-witness accounts of such matters, based on real-life experiences, then this channel is very likely to appeal to you. Sadly there is no "smooth milk choc-o-late for your delight" to go with it, so it looks like you'll have to go out and "trick-or-treat" a few of your neighbours if you want any !!
As you might expect from the name, this extra-terrestrial / UFO-related activity based Roku channel can be found in the "Special Interest" genre (i.e. category) of the "Official" Roku USA Channel Store. Bizarrely, the public channel has yet to be added to the "Official" Roku UK Channel Store... BUT it can still be added to UK Roku players as a private channel, using the ACCESS CODE shown in my previous post on the channel FOUND HERE. Generally speaking, 'Topic: UFO' is an Internet TV Talk Show and Open Forum, dedicated to the open discussion of UFO's and UFO-related activity. The content selection offered by the 'Topic: UFO' channel, is (currently) comprised of fifty-two videos divided into three separate series, as follows:-
- Season 1 - includes 16 'Topic: UFO' videos (episode nos. 01-16, inclusive)
- Season 2 - includes 26 'Topic: UFO' videos (episode nos. 17-42, inclusive)
- Season 3 - includes 10 'Topic: UFO' videos (episode nos. 43-52, inclusive)
PLEASE NOTE:- Season 3 is currently ongoing and, therefore, incomplete. You can expect new content to be added fairly frequently for this channel, although it's probably only worth looking on a weekly basis (rather than daily) to check for the latest additions. Meanwhile, the video archive containing all previous episodes from the series is available for you to watch at your leisure. Hopefully, this will provide you with enough talk show discussion of UFO's to easily pass the time between my daily doses of Roku-related Hallowe'en horror in "A MummyVision Guide To Hallowe'en On Roku" while, at the same time, satisfying your thirst for extra-terrestrial knowledge !!
It may further interest you to know that, according to the channel description for 'Topic: UFO' taken from the Official Roku Website, the 'Topic: UFO' show host (Rick Scouler) is also responsible for the development of the 'Topic: UFO' channel for Roku. So, obviously, his talents don't just end with presenting his own Internet TV Talk Show and then making original videos from it to fulfil your appetite for the discussion of UFO's and UFO-related activities. Anyway, if you'd like to make contact with Rick Scouler, you can do so via his Official Twitter Feed: @TopicUFO or, if you prefer, there is also the option to get social with the 'Topic: UFO' channel developer via: Topic: UFO (Facebook). Of course, you can always find out more about the 'Topic: UFO' channel for Roku by visiting their official website which can be found VIA THIS LINK !!
For those of you who'd like 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... you 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, 'Topic: UFO' will be there ready for you to watch whenever you choose !! All you must do to achieve this, is to type the following access code into the data entry field under "Add a Private Channel" and click the blue 'Add Channel' button:-
ACCESS CODE:- topicufo
Still, that's pretty much all there is to it, except to point out that 'Topic: UFO' has been given an average score of "4.5 out of 5" from 200 ratings (so far) in the channel store description on the Official Roku Website. That statistic alone should be reason enough for you to give it a try !!
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 !!
