Can you use HTML5 to develop apps/channels for Roku?

I really would prefer to use HTMl5 for this channel I have in mind rather than having to learn BrightScript. I was told that Youtube possibly uses HTML5 and that games are not made with BrightScript. Can someone let me know if HTML5 is a possibility like how it is with iOS/Android via WebView?

Hi, no, we don't allow HTML5 for performance reasons.
