Roku expects to broaden its channel selection in Canada at a pace similar to its growth in the U.S. – now at more than 450 channels.:)
Roku Private channels
Apparently you can add private channels to Roku and I found about a hundred online in a database so far. Time to get rid of my apple tv's:D
Roku is really good!
I found a lot of hidden channels and added them to Roku. Just don't accept what comes up as channels at first. Do :)some searching on the web and Nhl can be added as well. It doesn't show up at first . Local weather and can get local radio stations etc... Youtube fix is coming soon!!! It appears to be better than apple tv just for the content alone. More channels coming soon and they have lots of games if you are into that!:)
