Re: Request Go90 to create a Roku channel.

I checked it out. It looks like a legitimate channel, but I only recognized two of the shows, and neither interested me. I'm sure they'll create a Roku channel when they can, but with all the options I already have for content, this one isn't worth my time.

It's a Verizon experiment that appears to be failing. It was designed as a mobile-only competitor to Netflix and YouTube but has not taken hold. Most of its employees were laid off in January, and it's now being passed around among several divisions of the company as they try to decide whether to kill it.

It would have more exposure if they put it on streaming devices. Smiley Tongue

That's a bit sad though....

Re: Request Go90 to create a Roku channel.

This is often a problem in the tech industry. They put the marketing in the hands of people who might be good at tech but don't know what they are doing in terms of consumer marketing and then when the product fails they all act like they don't know why. Having a Roku "channel" is an obvious move. Frankly, it takes a special kind of stupid to have a streaming service that doesn't work with streaming devices. GO 90 is a great service. It has stuff you can't find anywhere else. They just need better marketing.

The National Women's Soccer League (NWSL) uses Go90 for their streaming. Afaik, it's not available elsewhere.
So yes, it would be great to have a Roku channel for Go90.
