    So no NFL Game Pass or NFL Live games? MLB, NHL and a whole bunch of other live sports. The winner of NFL streaming will be the one media device that rules them all.

    • jb

      couldn’t agree more. its the only thing stopping me from dumping my HD cable box.

      • KamWar

        Same here! I’d drop Dish in a heartbeat if I could keep watching NFL

    • Teresa Berry Mundt

      I agree!! Live in Illi ous and need to watch live all the Steelers games. Cant leave DirecTV because of this, as much as I want to save the money!

    • Teresa Berry Mundt

      Anyone know much about NFL Network live?? They advertise you can watch any game on any device! Is this true and how much does this cost a month and does it pause for buffering often?

      • Thomas Edwards

        Sling app for Roku does stop for buffering. Blue screen and other additional problems. Signed up with my bro at his house in Ventura and not pleased with the issues, along with not being HD pixel displacement and its frustrating.

    • Philip

      You can get CBS, NBC, fox over air, then buy Sling app for Roku – that should cover all NFL games I think – except Thu night

    • Steve Berde

      THE NFL would require big time pay up to offer this on any streaming device – the networks have paid billions to have exclusive rights to televise NFL games

  • Drew

    I get ESPN3 without cable subscription, is included in Comcast blast subscription.

  • nonsheeple

    But still not a whole lot of rugby

  • swedefour

    I searched on the ROKU channel guide- I am going to see if this works for season starts


    I agree – gotta have NFL live games. It’s a deal breaker for us.

    • NarniaNitro

      Then it seems your only option is to go with DirecTV. That’s the only service that brings you your choice of live games (apart from local cable/antenna), and if you’re paying for it, you probably don’t need a Roku channel for it.

  • Harold Skilley

    BYUtv also shows all BYU sports.

  • Eran

    The most popular soccer competition, the UEFA Champions League, is not available on Roku. The only offering for soccer, Dishworld, is very limited (and overpriced).

  • RokuYoku

    You can get the latest sports scores, odds and analysis, including NFL and NCAA on the Vegas Sports Advisors channel!

  • dotjames

    Is the Barclays Prem League REALLY available weekly for $10/mo? Does the fee get pd to Dish or Roku?

    • dst1234

      there is no BPL available on the Dish package… No idea why it says that. You get Betin and BeinEspanol which show almost all La Liga matches and a hanfull of Serie A/Ligue ` per week

  • Marc

    When is Roku going to correct the issue with NHL Game Center Live? It is impossible to watch a game with my Roku 3 without the feed freezing at least 5 to 20 times per game… depending on the day. Each time that I have called the NHL tech support, they state that I am not the only one complaining, and that they are “waiting” on a patch from Roku. When I watch with either my laptop or on my X-box in the den there are never any issues… when is Roku going to correct the problem? Yes, the quick and easy answer is to watch the games on my X-box. The X-box is ion a small den and my Roku player is on the main TV in the LARGE living room… many people come by to watch the games, thus the issue. ROKU, what say you?

    • Marc

      Took care of the issue yesterday. Purchased an Apple TV… Apple in, Roku out.

  • Jeff

    Just purchased FN (Fight Network). Major streaming issues on Roku. Pauses to reload, switches between low and higher resolution. Not net feed, as other apos (Netflix and UFC Fight Pass) stream freely. Is this about to improve? If not, this is unacceptable as is. Please….

  • NarniaNitro

    This is a decent list, but I must say that the Sports world gives a world of frustration to cable cutters who use Roku. I think that MLB.TV provides the best service of any major sport in the U.S., AND they give the “free game of the day” so you can get your fix of whatever team is on that day. I wish the other sports would provide suit. I also wish that sports like PGA Golf would open a channel.

  • Jack Stubbington

    Roku updated their app for MLB on March 26 2015 and now I can’t access the games. Other people are saying the same thing. Why does Roku have to mess with things that were working fine?

    • bbcritic

      I’m having the same problem. And their chat support was useless. Like huh? What?
      Thanks for the post. Let’s hope someone at Roku wakes up and fixes this soon. Or puts back the old app.
      I can only get radio at the moment, no live mlb tv since March 26th and I’ve been having internet problems. Hopefully the app isn’t causing those but I’m beginning to wonder….

      • Jack Stubbington

        Apparently MBL and Roku are aware of this situation and are working to correct the problem. I don’t understand why MBL didn’t do the upgrade during the off season. I can’t watch on my laptop because the picture quality is crap. That’s why I invested in the Roku.

      • Jack Stubbington

        I don’t know if you are still having problems but there is a temporary fix to access the MLB games. Go to home on your Roku and then settings. Click on display mode and change to 16×9 screen size then go back to MLB and try a game. I’ve changed back to 1080p and still get the games but a couple of times I had to again go through the steps I mentioned. Good luck.

    What all Latino channels does it have for soccer besides European soccer

  • gtb

    We purchased MLB package for roku and went to watch our home game and got a message saying the game is playing in our network area. We therefore couldn’t watch the game. Is there a way to fix this? It’s very frustrating

    • Philip

      I tried – same problem – just greed – local TV rights controlled by teams directly – they won’t allow streaming because they make boatloads on TV contracts

  • JB K

    Any chance we can stream the yahoo Sunday NFL game from london?

  • John Decker

    and no ESPN unless you have cable? or dish? that’s the purpose of something like Roku isn’t it? If I could get ESPN, and CBS Sports and SEC Network I would be gone from cable

  • Scott Bowles

    Just installed my Roku today and watched my first NHL Blues hockey game through Fox Sports Midwest. It did not look good. The hockey sticks looked pixels, and when there was fast action the picture was dragging and ghosting. What is the deal with that? Has anyone else experienced that?
