Hello, I recently bought a new roku premiere and I tried installing a channel but I can't find the channel on the roku apps store, I wanted to know if there is a way to install my app without the roku store.
Let's start with the fact that Showmax doesn't even have an app for Roku. They built apps for Android and iOS. They have Android TV apps. The indication is an Apple TV app, but it mentions AirPlay, which often means you use an iOS device and then send to Apple TV via AirPlay (no actual Apple TV app).
They do not have an app for Amazon Fire TV.
They do not have an app for Roku.
We don't actually need to proceed any farther along, as this totally rules out Roku as a platform for that service.
By the way, if you were thinking Roku builds the apps for Roku, think again. Roku, Apple, Google, and Amazon do not build the apps for their platforms. In this instance, Showmax would need to build an app.
