Internet Archive not in my region

Hello, I tried to add the Internet Archive private channel and got a message that it's not available in my region.  Does anyone else get this message and is there anything I can do?

Re: Internet Archive not in my region

If a channel is not authorized by the developer for your region, all you can do is to contact the channel developer and ask them to add your region to the permitted list. There's nothing Roku can do about that. And since it's a private channel, Roku officially does not offer any support for them.

Thanks for the quick reply.  It's the first time I've tried to add a channel with a code so thought maybe I was doing something wrong.

If you can find which region it is available in, you should be able to download a VPN and change your region to there
