MeTV is normally distributed to broadcast stations, often as a subchannel. The broadcast channels pay MeTV for the right to distribute the MeTV channel in their broadcast area.

To my knowledge, MeTV has not authorized streaming of their service.

If you'd like to pursue this, I think you'd have to take your request to MeTV and ask them to make a streaming option available, and to provide Roku with a channel app that could be used.  They may not want to do this, as it would cut their current paying customers, who derive income from their local commercial insertions, out of the loop.
