It's not readily apparent to most that each channel provider adapts their app to run on the Roku operating system, provides it to Roku, and maintains it. The only channels that Roku maintains are their own The Roku Channel, the Roku Media Player, and several Roku information channels. For everything else, Roku just provides the platform on which they run.

For additional services you'd like to have available via Roku, contact the service and let them know.

They had it but got rid of it. Been searching all day and no one knows why. Either amazo is upset that something other than the fire**bleep** stick could stream it, or Roku got rid of it for a different dip**bleep** reason.
