New Channels on Roku

Two new channels, DREAM TV and SMUG TV on ROKU today. Has anyone seen them. If not on the home channel update your ROKU manually.

Re: New Channels on Roku

Cool thanks. They were already in my channel store when I checked. Haven't messed around with the channel so I don't know what they are/do.

No issues here. Is it possible that the buffering is related to your connection speed?

Far from it. Both just came out of beta. Dream is international programing and Smugmug is high quality photography.

Re: New Channels on Roku

DreamTV constantly buffers. No problem playing HD content in Netflix. I suspect it will be like Mediafly when it first started. They will have to upgrade to meet the new demand.

While I appreciate the new channels I am a bit disappointed that Roku hasn't added any other 1st tier channels. I would love to see channels like Discovery, TNT or Disney show up on the Roku. They would of course have to be pay channels but so what? I would gladly pay a monthly fee to have access to Discovery content without having to pay for cable or Direct TV.

I tell you the truth some time ago posted a similar thread and don't know if disappointed is the word,but I to feel a let down so far Netflix is the ace in the hole. A bout the other content Discovery and Disney offer a good amount of entertainment through Netflix for the base amount.
