Wow that really sucks, as the topic says. I spoke to Roku support and that USTVNOW is no longer available for Roku at this time. I hope it returns soon and said to contact the provider for support explanation. One of the few live worth while channel available. All these other channels asks for your subscription info to view, if I had subscriptions I would not have a streaming box, I would be watching my subscriptions. FRUSTRATED.
Roku has been asked to remove this channel by the content rights owner.
Another good channel removed by Roku. Luckily, I have a second streaming device that still supports this and more. Considering how little streaming devices cost, I highly recommend you have a Roku and an Android based streamer on your sets. When Roku fails, the other device will be there to pick up the slack. As much as I like and use my Roku's as primary streaming device, every time good content is pulled, system suddenly crashes and reboots, etc. the more tempted I am in making my other devices as primary and Roku secondary. It is too bad the other boxes don't have that TV player feel the Roku has and the new remote with TV control is what keeps me hooked, but flower disappointed. USTVNow, NowhereTV, and other good content removed out of the blue.
This is perhaps a consequence of the hyper-vetting of the private channel marketplace that began in earnest after the Roku IPO. It's understandable, given the sleazy, piratical nature of some of the content scraping that was occurring among some of the private channels. This stuff was barely skirting copyright law. Heck, now that Roku is public, they have to be more diligent in this regard, as they might have legal exposure to lawsuits. They don't want the SEC and the FTC after them.
