Any comments on IROKO TV? Other Nigerian or African Channels?

Hi - 

There's a Nigerian movie I'd like to watch which is here:
Confusion Na Wa (2013)
Not Rated | 1h 45min | Comedy, Crime, Drama | 1 August 2013 (Nigeria)

I don't seem to be able to identify a DVD to buy, and a search does not turn up the movie on Roku.

Looking around further, this youtube link shows part of the movie and then asks me to sign up at something called IROKO TV.

My questions:
1.  Does anyone know anything about IROKO TV?  Is there a reason I cannot access it directly through Roku?  I do want to see this movie, but given the cliche or classic concerns about paying for items from Nigeria, does anyone know if there is a particular security concern with paying for this channel? 

[edit to add: IROKO is claimed here to be the world's "...largest legal digital distributor of African movies...."

2.  Does anyone have a view on other African TV movie channels on Roku?  Is there a chance others might allow me to stream a specific Nollywood movie on Roku even though that movie does not show up in Roku Search?

I subscribe to Iroko TV.  It has worked well for me so far. But I use it on my laptop and on my iPhone.  You can subscribe and download the app from the app store.  Cannot use Roku TV with it as yet.  That how I got here.  Was trying to figure out how to use it with Roku.
