Private Channels

I've been a Roku user since the first model and I remember hearing about private channels a few times, but never looked into it.

What is on these private channels?  Is it illegal content or something?  Anything good?  Hard to find?

Re: Private Channels

https://streamfree.tv/ is a good source.

Private channels are usually used for beta testing or possibly for adult content. While channels can be used to get around copyright laws, Roku has been more proactive in removing them, including banning people from installing channels via developer mode.

https://my.roku.com/account/add?channel=H9DWC <-- Good private channel. Has some hidden gems. Fan of the Red Green Show? Has them all.

I wanted to take a look at this chanel list but, I didn't notice anything  unusual, some are listed in the channel store, there is an over 18 channel for 2.99 a month, I used the link the other poster had added to look.. Unless there is another site to view these channels, I don't know from this point
