Is it possible to load script(BRS) files from remote server

I am working on writing Media Analytics Module for my Roku application and I wanted clarification on whether I can load certain script (BRS) files from my server?

Regards,

There is the ComponentLibrary for loading signed code into an app... been meaning to look in to it, it fits my use case nicely.

One great use case for doing this is to be able to make a lot of changes to your public Roku channel without needing to ever submit it to RokuQA for re-certification.

Which is something which you absolutely, positively should not do. That's like structuring/smurfing bank deposits, so that IRS does not catch a whiff of tax evasion.

Regarding downloadable component libraries, it sounds good in theory but i heard through the grapevine there are some issues.
