    According to this news item http://www.engadget.com/2013/07/26/sky-now-tv-box-9-99/ the new now tv box based on the roku will have one of the many UK content providers catchup service on it, namely demand 5. My question is when or will that channel be available on the on the standard roku 2 and 3 in the UK anytime soon. As I desperately wanting some more key on demand/catchup services in the UK on my roku. Hoping the sky box will help that uptake in the UK.

    Hey, while I was looking for this channel, I found DEMAND 5 for Channel 5 viewers in the UK, 2 down 2 to go, come on ITV and Channel 4, you know you want to!

    Where is the live feed? Your blog promises “live 24/7 news coverage” but there is no “live” broadcast in the Roku channel.

    • Tom

      Ignore that question. I found the live broadcast. If anyone else is as blind as I appear to be, it’s the “Sky News” selection under the Spotlight category.

        Thanks! I couldn’t find it. Was expecting it to be called out like Apple TV

          Me too. Maybe that’s why they removed it, because no one was using it, but it was a bit hidden!

    Will Sky News also show the program Sky Sports News?

    It was great yesterday. But today I get a blank screen with “Content no authorized” in place of video. The audio stream is there.
