5 Private Roku Channels That Rocked

While there are tons of public channels in the Roku channel store. There are some great private Roku channels you won't find listed there. These channels were never published in the Public channel store because they may contain prohibited content such as Roku Porn, Live TV streams or copyrighted content. Or, a developer may simply have wanted to keep their channel private for any number of reasons.


If you browsed our huge A-Z Private Roku Channels list you will see most private channels have both a code listed and an "add channel" link.

Private Roku channels can be added by either a code or by clicking an add channel link. Clicking the link is easier. If this won't work because you live in another country and can't access Roku's channel store, you can also add channels by entering a private channel's vanity code.

To enter the code, visit your Roku My Account web page on your computer. After you have Signed in, click the Welcome tab with your name listed underneath. From the pop-up nav bar, go to My account, then scroll down under Manage account and click the Add a Channel link. In the Channel access code box, type in the channel code and then click the blue Add channel button.

No matter which method you choose to add new channels, your new channels won't show up until you go to your Roku and do a System update under settings. Any new channels will then be added and can be found at the very end of your installed channels on your Roku.

When it comes to private Roku channels, these channels are extra special. They will let you do things with your Roku that you may have not known was possible.


If there is one channel that could have once won a most popular private Roku channel contest it was XTV. This channel had so much free content it is unreal. XTV did not charge a monthly fee, although donations were gladly accepted. It offered viewers on Roku a ton of great content. When we say a ton we are not using the term lightly. There were many free movies and TV series that were once found on this channel.

There was no complicated add-ons or setups like with Plex or Kodi. With the XTV private Roku channel you just turn on your Roku and watch TV. Just the way it should be.

XTV featured both on-demand and live TV. While the live TV streams did not always work 100% of the time, this is the nature of IPTV. For the most part their channels work well until Roku closed it down.
