    When will the Disney channel be available? I don’t see it in the channel line-up on the roku.com site yet.

    Okay, I added it. And I found it very disappointing. It is mainly just clips and ads for things by Disney. I was hoping for actual Disney shows. I would pay to have a REAL Disney channel. My daughter misses Mickey Mouse Clubhouse since we ditched the dish.

      It’s like Kim said, just a bunch of clips and ads. I removed it in less than two minutes.

    New Channel if you’re looking for fun kids/family content is the “Travel With Kids” Channel. The icon is showing up next to the Disney icon (that might change later)
    Travel With Kids has 49 episodes of family adventures around the world.. very fun and educational too! One time fee of 4.99 means you’ll also get the news shows as they are added.

    • Worldtrip1

      It’s the “Travel With Kids” Channel.. NOT the Disney Channel. Both were released at the same time.

    Would like to see Roku add Blockbuster Channel. As is will need different equipment to get it and beginning to look as if their prices and content will be better than Netflix

    • Chris D

      I agree. I’m switching from Netflix to Blockbuster so won’t have much use for my 2 Roku boxes unless they add a Blockbuster channel. Being able to stream Blockbuster content is going to become a big selling point, like Netflix, Pandora and Youtube.

    • Shells

      I agree….Blockbuster has a better selection and newer movies …..BUT ! just got a email from Blockbuster that they are putting their movies into Red Boxes. This could be the end of Blockbuster as we know it.

    Disney one sucks, not much programing not even as much as they have on their FREE Website. What is wrong with them Commericalism at its best. Come On Disney throw the kids a bone and offer a better channel.
