Web stream

There are many live stream of sporting events, local news, and such I can connect to on my Windows 10 PC using a web browser or connecting directly to the stream using VLC. Currently I connect my laptop with an HDMI cable but I then can't use my laptop while watching a game. Is there a Roku channel that will allow one do define streams and directly connect to them like VLC does? It seems like a simple thing, so I'm sure someone has done it by now, but searching for terms like "live stream" in the store returns just about every Roku channel, so finding one is like finding a needle in a stack of needles. 

Also I use Plex, maybe someone knows of a way to do it in Plex?
