Adding a private channel - Getting an Error.

When I try to add the Private Channel for Nowhere TV I get the message: The channel code provided is associated with a channel not available in your region." Any clue on how to fix this?

You may need a TARDIS for that one.  That is, I think it ended a few years ago.

Re: Adding a private channel - Getting an Error.

Yeah, I think the developer of Nowhere TV took it down a year or so ago. Lots of the private Roku channel lists you see on the 'net are sadly out of date.

The "channel not available in your region" message appears to be generic error text that is returned when one enters a code for which there is no established channel app. I've entered a nonsense letter combination and received the same error message. The error message is technically correct -- if the code is invalid it does not represent a channel available in that region -- but it is misleading.
