    I don’t understand why these new channels are not available for all Roku players out there. I just bought one before the newer models (1,2,3) came out like ONLY 8 months ago (July 26th of last year to be exact), but I can’t get these channels? I wish I would have just waited a little to buy the 1,2,or 3 models but I had no idea they were coming out with new models. It’s like you guys are forcing me to go out and buy a new Roku player every year (I already have 2) which I don’t see as very practical or customer friendly.

      Our apologies, Ben. The channel is available on more models, which are now listed in the post above.

        May i humbly suggest that instead of enumerating all the players – with model numbers added parenthesized, because of confusing naming over the years – just to say something like “all model numbers >2200″ – because that is the case, all excluded models are = 2400.

        Thank you for allowing this for other channels so quickly! I just hope future channels are allowed on more pretty recent Roku players…

        Very happy with my Roku 3. Can we please have an app for Oasis HD? THAT WOULD BE AWESOME!

        • Nat Ramnan

          Any chance of getting OASIS HD?

    Woo Hoo! Time for some Burning Love!

    • Josh

      I’m not seeing “Burning Love” on this Roku channel at all — a search for that title just leaves me on a screen that says “Retrieving…”

      Unfortunately it feels like the selection to browse (and even search for) is rather anemic, at least when compared to the actual full library on https://screen.yahoo.com .

        I agree! cant see Vevo either! or Yahoo Movies…when I log in thro my PC it is all there!

    You know what would be really cool? Releasing the YouTube app to the other Rokus.

      My understanding is that this is a limitation of the HTML5 standards enforced by Google on Youtube clients – the older Roku’s are not powerful enough to render the content acceptably. This also applies to the newer Netflix interface.

    Daily show??….where??

    Is it going to be possible to log into this Yahoo Screen channel with my Yahoo Account? It seems like finding clips that I like is very difficult
