Roku Channel Wishlist?

1.) Minor League Baseball TV-Don't know why this still isn't available. It would be nice if some of the broadcasts where more professional and in HD.

2.) NWA Classics 24/7-When it first came out last year it was announced that it would be on Roku shortly. Never happened.

3.) A better version on NBA Enabled League Pass-Something like MLB.TV or NHL.TV and have games available from the past few seasons. It doesn't last year round either(at least mine stopped last season before exhibition season began).

4.) Direct TV streaming channels-As it stands now they have it available with their On-Demand channels and its not easy too find what channels are available. Take note Direct TV-My current Charter Spectrum streaming has 116 channels on Roku

5.)Universal and/or Fox movie streaming channels-So far I haven't heard anything.

6.) American Hockey League Streaming-The current one is over 300 dollars a season (not sure if it's available on Roku) and as it stands right now its cost prohibitive.

1) Maxgo -- Cinemax's streaming channel. I believe it's only available on IOS and Android, but not Roku.

Update on NWA Classics 24/7
Bruce Tharpe(NWA President) mentioned at the Kayfabe Memories (Houston Forum) that they will have some news about the situation in 30-45 days. So it looks good for a Roku app.

I'd Love, for there to be a Something Weird Video, channel. It'd have all the films and shorts.

I also wish channels like Hulu, Amazon, Shudder, or Fandor had the option of watching the film with commentary, if it's available.

The ShoutFactoryTV app has a handful of movies with commentary.

I wish Vudu was more like iTunes. Vudu has separate listings for the standard version, the movie with extra features, the Director's Cut, an alternate language version, etc. iTunes only have one listing per movie. If there's special features, alternate cuts, additional language tracks, etc, it's all on the same listing.

Have you asked them? A lot of those premium sites have private channels.

Fox Sports Go

An International Hockey channel that shows games from around the globe(including KHL).

Hanna Barbera Channel-shows that are in the HB library

MeTV-on demand of the shows that are on MeTV

NFL Films-This was on in the past but the NFL pulled the plug on it. Loved watching NFL team highlight films(especially from the 60s and 70s). Sorry the current NFL Now should be called NFL Useless.

Tired of waiting for this one, so I just bought a $30 Android Box to run it on. Works perfectly!

Full Moon Streaming did have a lot of the Something Weird Video's and I see that Amazon Prime is offering it(Full Moon Streaming) as an add-on subscription. I'm not sure if everything will be available as an add-on.

I might quit the Full Moon Streaming and use the add-on from Amazon Prime.
