Hi there,

I want to publish a channel, however, I have permission to publish the movies in Ontario, Canada only. Is there any mechanism in Roku to check the location of the device?

thanks in advance,

In the developer portal you can select to publish in only one region (i.e. Canada).  In code you can query the device channel store country code.  Any narrower geolocation than that you will need to have an ip lookup service.  Roku does not provide that.
