Clicker.com Channel?

I was wondering if it would be possible to develop a channel that would access clicker.com via the Roku box. They have a lot of interesting content.

Short answer, no. They don't appear to have their own stuff, instead they let you play a show from other sources. So if I go to 30 Rock, I can play an episode from Hulu, NBC, or Fancast. In the case of 30 Rock, it's in Flash. Can't be played on the Roku.

Although we already have examples of content aggregation sites (MediaFly, BlipTV...), so clicker.com could also probably be done. As KennyJ points out, you must take care to filter out content that will not play on the Roku box.
