Note, there is no mention of Roku.  Contact Directv and tell them you want to have a Roku version of Directv Go.

No there isn't. It is strange because in other countries as Chile, Peru or Mexico is available through Roku but not Ecuador. Who has to add the channel¡? Roku or Direct Tv?

 

The same for HBO or Dinsey+. We only have Netflix available... Roku is getting behind the competition.

@andrew87

Thanks for the post.

As @makaiguy mentioned, channel availability/access on Roku devices will vary from region to region. A Roku device will work in any location, however, channels may not be available on your device in that location, based on each channel provider's discretion. For more information, you'd want to contact any specific channel/service provider to inquire further about whether they offer their channel/service on the Roku platform in your region. 


Thanks,
Danny
