SkyShowtime channel integration

Roku sells and gains popularity across Europe. Do you intend to integrate SkyShowtime channel for these devices?

Re: SkyShowtime channel integration

Given that of the over 20 territories where SkyShowtime is or will be available none are officially supported by Roku, I'd say it's unlikely.

Re: SkyShowtime channel integration

@renojim  You are right, there’s no cross-section between these 20 countries and current European targets for Roku - UK, Germany and France. On the other hand, there are other Sky channels already available in Roku.. And Showtime platform is available in multiple flavours there.. We’ll see, hopefully they will add it at some point for all of us that travel abroad and have their Roku stick in the backpack 🙂

Keep in mind that nearly every channel/app on Roku is developed by the content company, not Roku, so "they" would be SkyShowtime or some agent of SkyShowtime's.  So it would be a good idea to let them know that there are people wanting to see them on Roku.  They may be assuming (possibly correctly) that the market is small since Roku is not marketed in the countries they support.
