connecting roku channel to database

So i've got a streaming site. it has archived video/upcoming live video. I'm trying to figure out how to get that type of thing working on my roku channel. is it possible to connect a roku channel to a mysql database? if possible, i was wondering if anyone had any samples i could look at. 
thanks

You will need to create an http accessible api to communicate with your external content.
You cannot connect directly to sql in Roku.

Isnt that how it normally works? Using a scripting language like php or such?
