Night Flight launching 24/7 streaming music video channel

Story Here

Night Flight, the '80s-era late-night TV series that got resurrected as a streaming service, is launching a 24/7 music video channel dedicated to independent artists and labels. Dubbed NFTVi, the live streaming channel is part of the Night Flight Plus service and labels such as Sub Pop, Dais, and Rvng Intl, Drag City, and Dark Entries are on board for their artists, with more labels to be announced soon.

Is there a link to the channel in the Roku Store?

The confusion is there is no Night Flight Plus on Roku just Night Flight.

The channel options are in the middle of the screen while everything needs to be scrolled down the screen on the Roku device.

Re: Night Flight launching 24/7 streaming music video channel

I used to dig Night Flight. Might have to check into this.

I literally, fifteen minutes ago, searched for Bubblegum Crisis on streaming. It's on NFP. And a bunch of those weird drug movies that were in the back of the alt video stores in the 80s/90s. I've got a ton of concert films in my queue on Tubi but I've already seen a dozen or so that grab me in this library.

So...there's Night Flight Plus, which is a subscription service - and it includes NFTVi which is music videos/music stuff, and Night Flight, which is movies and docs from NF?
Both accessible from the Night Flight channel on Roku (and a couple others)?

OK so I've subbed and browsed a little bit. You can, as was previously stated, choose 'classic NF' where they just show the old episodes intact (no commercials that I've seen) "live", and another where it's music videos. Or you can browse the on-demand library. So far I've seen a couple weird-ass 80s independent short films (including one that is available from an archive service for $100, so bam, I'm ahead already!)
Thousands Watch | Video Data Bank
and some weird international music videos on the 'live' feeds. Oh, and about a fifth of the Residents Commercial DVD, which is, yes, weird.

It seems the 'favorites' functionality, which I interpreted to be like a queue or MyList, is device specific. Very annoying. And their website's 'contact us' page is entirely blank, at least when I checked it both on Firefox and Chrome.
Anyway, I look forward to going through some of their music docs and collections.

Re: Night Flight launching 24/7 streaming music video channel

So my free week ended and I officially subbed for a year.
In the 'welcome subscriber!' email, there was a link to an admin mailbox as a 'contact us', and a link to Facebook to 'connect with them.'
The facebook account, though it has the name in the web address, looks like some random woman's private page that hasn't had a public update since November. I'm wondering NF is some programmer who made an app and has tons of alt stuff on a hard drive somewhere.
Ah - adding 'plus' takes me to what looks like a more official website. Which hasn't been updated since 2016.
I'll keep an eye on my credit card, just in case. But I like, or at least am intrigued by, what I've seen so far.
