Best private channels on Roku?

I didn't know anything about private channels on Roku until I got a new one and found out that Exploitation.TV was considered a private channel. So I looked it up and there are quite a few private channels out there.

Any favorites worth checking out?

Private channels were a big thing in the past. But now that it's become so easy to make an official channel, they've kinda died off. There's a few that are still good.

I use iTunes Podcasts. It's a great way to listen to podcasts on your TV. It also works with video podcasts.

The Nowhere Man has made some good private channels. The best is Nowhere TV which streams from various websites.

If you like Adult content, you'll love this:

SugarDVD and AdultDVDEmpire both have Netflix-style unlimited streaming services that use private channels. And a few Adult websites like Reality Kings, Naughty America and VideoBox also have private channels.

I forgot, there's one more private channel that I recommend. It's the Speed Test channel. Basically, it just runs various speed tests from speedtest.net. It's useful when you need to troubleshoot streaming problems.

Thanks, I wasn't aware of this one.

I watch NHK World out of Japan somewhat often. Everything is subtitled at the very least, although I have caught several "Americans traveling Japan" shows that are mostly spoken English.
