CRTV Overseas

So, I live in Korea.  I have CRTV on my android tablet, and I have a Roku, but the Roku doesn't show CRTV as an option. Roku advised contact CRTV. Crtv says, "I guess it's not a available there." But it's on my android tablet okay. Seems odd. Any ideas or workarounds? They'll let me watch it on my tablet, but not my TV?

Re: CRTV Overseas

Roku is not Android based.  Doesn't support APKs at all. CRTV needs to change their channel to work overseas. This is left to the Channel Developer to decide.

There's a CRTV channel in the Roku US store, but not Korea.

CRTV would have to fix that. They would have to check the "Rest of the World" box on their options when publishing the channel.

Crtv tells me it is available worldwide. Each company blames the other. Frustrating.

Well, CRTV is on other devices, but I am guessing not on Roku. CRTV makes that call and is responsible for that setting when Publishing to the Roku Channel Store. I know this because I have to checkmark that option when I publish channels.
