Create a private channel to display a web page

I want to know if it possible to create a Roku channel and display a web page? We have a company "scoreboard" (web page created to showcase live company stats). Instead of purchasing a fire stick or chrome cast for each TV I wanted to know if it was possible to use the Roku sdk or direct publisher to display. We purchased a bunch of Roku TVs so this would be our preferred method to showcase our scoreboard.

Re: Create a private channel to display a web page

There's no built-in HTML processing available.  You could theoretically parse the page and draw it yourself, but it would probably be easier to take the raw data from some server and use Roku components to display it.  Either way it's a lot of work if you're not familiar with Roku development.

Re: Create a private channel to display a web page

I think it would be somewhat easy to do and what I mean by that is, when creating a web site that has a lot of dynamic content, usually the method is to feed the data via a json file or xml for that matter while the rest of the content is static, ir placeholders and headers or what not,

Its basically what all Roku channels are comprised of...
