Swoop TV Status?

I did a free trial of Swoop TV on my tablet. I really want to subscribe but it is not available for ROKU which is a deal breaker for me. It is available on iOS, Android, Fire Stick and others. I read elsewhere that a ROKU channel is under development. A search here did not produce any results. Can any one comment on the status of this channel for ROKU users? Thanks.

Re: Swoop TV Status?

Swoop TV will have to confirm that. With very few exceptions, Roku does not create the channels available on their players. So no way of confirming anything here.

Swoop says "Never on ROKU". Bummer.

Because it's pirated content, for which Roku has zero tolerance.

I did not know this. Surprised Amazon allows it on Fire. I figured it was too good to be true.

No it is not because it is pirated, it is because ROKU would lose a lot of money because they cannot sell you an overpriced subscription to each channel you want to watch. I will never buy another ROKU ever..

I don't blame Swoop... I would not deal with ROKU either... ROKU is the absolute worst streaming device made..
