Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
If you're looking for free or ad-supported, you probably won't find much. Most of those shows are not in the public domain, so you're most likely looking at subscription services that offer them, such as Hulu or Amazon Prime, or they're available for sale via Amazon instant video and other services.

I have a Roku Premier+, and installed a VPN to enable me to watch USA tv. Youtube, Netflix channels installed already.
I wanted a few more channels installed - like Prime Hulu etc. But when I tried installing, it keeps telling me "Channel Install Failed" - "Cannot install channel 'channel name'".
Can someone please help?
I checked my account online. The link to install channels from there also seems to be inactive. I changed my address in Roku account to USA one, but no use. I am out of ideas now.
Discussing VPN use to circumvent regional restrictions is not permitted on the forum. Many channels are only available within certain geographic regions. Roku does not support your attempt to get around that. Sorry, that's the way it's made.
