I just called Crave to ask the status of adding its service to Roku and I was told by the agent that it’s working on getting it on all streaming devices but there is no date, so who knows!  I was only pointed to this web page:  https://www.crave.ca/en/support/which-devices-does-crave-support-35731641

Not sure I understand. I have to be a VMedia subscriber to use CraveTV on my Roku? They're completely separate devices/entities.

There is an app in the Channel Store (https://channelstore.roku.com) for 3D Crave, but nothing that says "Crave TV." So, is that what you're talking about? If not, you're asking about a private channel, and potentially unsupported. 

So, can you confirm the exact name of the app and where you found it?

Similar to Netflix, Amazon, etc. It was created by the Canadian broadcasting company Bell.

From reading other posts on the Inet it doesnt sound like it's available for Roku so I cancelled by CraveTV subscription.

Yeah, they don't mention anything on their Website about Roku, just other devices.

Also, adding your location to your profile (and by you, I mean everyone, not singling you out) it would help when troubleshooters attempt to research. If I don't have access to the same channel store as you, then anything I contribute is most likely only noise and prevents or obstructs you from getting good help.

They don't want you or anyone cutting the cord. Bell and Rogers still haven't learned that their cable and satellite subscriptions are all going to be gone one day. At risk of stating the obvious they have way to much control. The lawsuit Bell won over Vmedia just goes to show how stupid the Canadian regulations on broadcasting are. This is pure corruption.

People, remember. Bell is in bed with Google/Android and Apple already. Not surprised they have Crave TV. But Roku is the box that is cheap, that lets us Wal-Mart folks cut the cord too.

So don't hold your breath that these two awful companies will provide you with better service. They are only out to provide their board member profits. They suck. I'm signed up for star choice tv just out of spite.

"Bell is in bed with Google/Android" except Crave downloaded from Google Play on an Android Box is so bad it's pretty much unusable.  I stopped using it on Android after I found that I had access to Crave from my Samsung TV where the interface is acceptable.

I still don’t see any progress on this question posed to this community. When will Canada’s CraveTV (www.cravetv.ca) be added to the Roku list of channels?  It is a major streaming service in Canada with HBO, etc. but not accessible. It’s available on AppleTV and Amazon’s Fire TV but not on Roku. I recently purchased the Roku 4K stick and I could not find it, so it may be returned for this reason.

Unable to cast cravetv

Jump to solution

Unable to use the cravetv casting to the Roku Express, however it can cast on Chromecast. Is this a Roku issue or Cravetv?
