Cant find a channel

I am new at Roku.  Live in Canada.  And I am looking for the tou.tv app (or channel) but cant find it.  It is available on Play Store.

Does Roku use the same store for App?

Is there any way to add a channel if you cant find it?

Thanks

No, Roku has its own operating system and channel apps have to be coded explicitly to run on it, so "plain jane" android apps fom Googleplay can't be used. 

Roku channel apps are created, supplied, and maintained by the channels themselves; Roku just supplies the platform on which they run.  If you want to have a Roku channel that is not available in the Roku Channel Store, contact the channel and ask them to develop one.
