The install command that I posted above must be sent via an HTTP POST command so that can't be done with a browser, you will need something like Postman to do that.

I tried searching for crave on my Roku and nothing pops up. Only "3D crave" and  "crave keyword ROI for your biz" are the only things to pop up. Am I missing something here?

I looked throught settings on my Roku device and I don't actually see a Country setting, but is it possible that either your device or your account is set to US rather than Canada?  Maybe try a reboot of your device?

I was just able to add the Crave channel by logging into my Roku account at roku.com on my laptop. Once logged into your account go to the top menu What to Watch>The Channel Store. On that page search for Crave in the search area which is in the top right. Once Crave is shown after your search just Add Channel.

Thanks for the channel number.  I did an add first from Roku.com, no go as my devices are all registered US.  I then telnetted into the one Roku I have with the same result, even though I am in Canada for the next few months.  Fricking Bell Canada.

 

i am in Canada, but because I normally in the US I can’t access even though I pay for it.  Yet I cant access my US only accounts because I am in Canada...I know which streaming sevrices I will be cancelling starting with Bell and Crave.

 

thanks again for the assists.

GEEGEE if you actually read my original post, you would know that that was not working, so...

How does it know that your account is US based?  Can you just do a factory reset and start over again with a different account?  Or maybe you can switch the domicile of the account?  Or maybe you could enable guest mode and login with another account?

Guest Mode

Got visitors? This mode lets your visitors log in to enjoy their own subscription channels on your Roku device.

When you first register your Roku it records your location.  

your IP address is used for geolocation

 

your subscription shows your billing location (both CRedit Card and physical).

 

i believe guest will show the original registration address.

 

so I will try, but not feeling warm fuzzies

 

i may have to deregister the one Roku I am travelling with, create a new registration with Roku Canada and then add the channel.

 

My money is on Bell being #&$#@&&.  I am actually on their physical Network as they are my ISP when in Canada.  I also have a TV service from them totalling IPS/TV over $190/math including Crave.

 

Maybe I will change my ISP/TV to Rodgers...lol

Just did a Guest setup and accessed the Roku in guest mode.

 

no dice

 

definitely a Bad coding decision.  Now I will deactivate my Roku with me in Canada and register/activate with Roku Canada.  99% sure that will do it, but I will have to add/login again to all my subscriptions.

 

too bad Roku refuses to support physical keyboards.
