Dutch channels on Roku USA

Hello, I was wondering if any Dutch apps/channels like NPO will be added to Roku. The Nederlands has many apps available for Dutch streaming

Re: Dutch channels on Roku USA

Channel apps only stream to geographical areas in which they are authorized due to contract concerns and broadcast rights issues. NPO streams only in the Nederlands.

Re: Dutch channels on Roku USA

Thank you!!

Maybe you can help me understand the concept here.

I can watch on a IOS device NPO using their app without signing in or registering to their app. My thinking is that if there is an app, it could work on Roku.

Could you explain to me Why that would not work??.

is it because it’s an iOS version and Roku uses A different platform??

Actually, there is an android version available in the playstore also. I wasn’t aware of that before

Re: Dutch channels on Roku USA

Roku just provides the platform on which the channel apps run. Roku has its own operating system. Neither IOS nor Android apps are compatible. Roku makes available the information the channel providers need for writing Roku-compliant apps, but it's up to the channels themselves to create, provide and maintain their channel apps.
