Nowhere Archive 404 when trying to add

Anyone know what the deal with the Internet Archive channel is? I just can't believe it's a defunct channel, but I'm getting a 404 error when trying to add. Maybe the code has changed for 2021? I'm using NMJS5. Thanks for any additional information.

I believe all the "nowhere" channels disappeared a long time ago.

Hmm. OK. This was Archive.org's "private" channel, and was still listed as available as of 2020 and 2021 on several websites. Guess that's not the case, and I'm just unlucky enough to have missed the boat.

Re: Nowhere Archive 404 when trying to add

I have the Nowhere Internet Archive channel on my Roku box but I  tried to add it to someone else's box on Christmas Eve with no  luck and I suggested someone else add it yesterday with no luck.

It is my favorite channel but maybe Roku is just trying to wean viewers away from it before the February 23, 2022 banning of  private channels.

I just wish it would become certified or whatever as a Roku channel and continue to be available.
