Re: Channel access inquiry | Uncertified private channel

Is there some reason Roku will not certify channels when applied for, or cherry-picks only certain channels?

There are SO many reports out there from developers going meticulously through the entire certification process only to sit on the final application and just never approve it.

It is clear that Roku has decided that there are some customers and channels that should not be able to use the platform if the app or the customers that use it are not "approved" by the Roku boardroom. 


Strongly considering Apple TV or Amazon Fire. About done with Roku.
