Can we use the Roku Integrated Billing system on a private adult channel? I can't find anything in the developer or billing services agreement that says we can't, but before we send a proposal to our client to build a channel for them, we want to make sure there won't be any surprises.
Roku might not have a problem with it, but payments processing goes thru Paypal. And Paypal has a strict policy for adult content. That is where you'll run into problems... I don't know if Roku offer other alternatives for sending payment to channel owners.

Need official word about this, but I'd think the biggest problem is that it's a private channel. Roku goes out of their way to keep them at arms length. I didn't think the billing system was available to private channels.

Hmm. that's interesting - we haven't built a pay channel, so no experience with this, but I didn't see *anything* in the documentation that says you can't use Roku billing with private channels. I'd think you'd need to be able to, at least to test a channel before you made it public, no?
In most cases I don't think we will allow gambling on our platform at all, private or public. It would be evaluated on a case by case basis, and if you have a case where you think it would not violate any of the the laws of any the 50 states then our business team might consider if they are willing to allow it.
