PressTV - Alternative News from Iran on Roku

The PressTV News App

Download it at the Roku App Store 





Are you tired of the same old news channels?  Looking for different viewpoints on current events?

Try PressTV News.  It comes from Iran.  I know, I know.  Iran isn't the first country you think of when you think of news.  But maybe it should be?  I think their news service is really good.    


  • Attractive, well-produced news broadcasts
  • Their English is excellent
  • Lively coverage of world news
  • Refreshingly different viewpoints.  <--- This is my favorite thing about the show.

If you want to hear different viewpoints about world news, try PressTV world news from Iran.  It's refreshingly different.  

Happy streaming!

Today, the Press TV app is not working.  Does anyone here know of another way to watch Press TV?  Thank you in advance for advice.

I don't see any other services or channels that carry PressTV(ir) Live.

Unless/until the PressTV channel issue is fixed, I think you will either have to watch it via their website and either cast to the Roku or HDMI cable to the TV.
