5 Private Roku TV Channels That Rock

Private Roku Channels or Non-Certifed channels as Roku now likes to call it, makes Roku one of the most popular media streamers currently available.

What are Non-Certified or Roku Private Channels?

These are channels that anyone can build using Roku's free developer tools. Unlike Google or Apple, which charge their content developers for the privilege of adding channels or apps to their platform, becoming a Roku channel developer is free.

You can build a Roku channel either from scratch or by using the simple Instant TV Channel for Roku web based software. Learn a lot more about Roku channels in this free, "How To Build a Private Roku Channel Guide."

Once your Roku channel is finished, you can either upload it to Roku as a non-certified, private channel or submit it to Roku for approval to be included in their Public Roku Channel Store.

Even though a Roku channel is private, you can still share the code or add channel links. If it is non-certified the channel won't be listed in Roku's public store until Roku approves it. Private channels sometimes contain full movies and TV shows from non legal sources or Roku Porn Channels and these are not allowed to be listed as public channels.

Update My Channels makes it easier. Once you have this channel installed, just open the channel and your Roku automatically checks for updates and installs any newly added channels.
