Filmrise Movie App on Roku Channel for PC

Jump to solution

I've started watching the Roku Channel App on my PC. 

I'm hooked on a series that no longer seems to be free. 

It appears to be available for free on Filmrise Movies. Is it possible to watch that on the PC App?

Thanks!

Thanks for the inquiry.

Please be aware that you will only be able to watch Roku Channel app content online and that the Roku Channel app does not have the same functionality as a Roku device. If you are trying to watch content available through another provider, you would need to contact the provider to see how to access their content.


Thanks,

When you access TRC via a TV or app on another device, you can only access the content within TRC. To get content from another provider, you have to access it in the way they provide. Filmrise has multiple channels for Roku devices, and perhaps even apps on other devices. But you would have to use those devices to use the app. I have no idea if that content might be available via a web page somewhere. But no, you cannot add another channel that is available on Roku devices to TRC that you view from a web page, or other non-Roku device.
