plus the channels have to be approved by roku anyways, so if someone adds wrong content, they can just disapprove that channel.
there's lots of legitimate content providers out there on flash who won't invest in other technologies just to get the channel on roku since everything is working fine for them currently.
"bollywood" wrote:The format Roku supports for live streaming (HLS) is also the only one that can be used on iOS devices, according to Apple policy. They may be more interested knowing that they can also target iOS by using it, and by not using it they will be locking themselves out of iPad, iPhones, iPod Touches, and quite likely AppleTV whenever it becomes possible to develop for it.
there are a lot of indian news channels that will be willing to join but i doubt they will spend more money on streaming in another format. so if roku would support their current formats, they will happily join as legitimate public channels.
