I just recently bought a Roku Box, and decided I would try my hand at developing. I would like to know if there is any channels or plugins out there that make your Roku more like dish network or cable with a guide that you can scroll through and select what shows to watch?
I am wondering because I would like to create a channel somewhat like this. I would like to have a channel that, once opened, would allow you to navigate through a visual guide of channels or categories that once selected would play a video. I would like to be able to allow the user to create channels within this channel that they could categorize and they would continuously play like regular television channels. You could have a channels labeled history and comedy and action and movies etc. that once opened would already be playing. Is this possible, and if so how hard would it be to create?
I should point out that such a channel would not likely be allowed under the current developer agreement. That said, we do understand that people want beter ways to discover new content and we are always looking at ways of providing that and improving what is available on the players.
