No Multiview or Channel Preview on Roku

Why no multiview channel support on Roku.  FuboTV just came out with multiview on AppleTV.  YouTubeTV offers a thumbnail channel preview from their guide on AppleTV. 

- Is there a limitation to what Roku can do with handling multiple video streams?

- Do the Apps (FuboTV, YTTV) need to be motivated/assisted to implement on Roku?

I ask, as these features make me look at AppleTV as a replacement for Roku.

Would love to know.

Re: No Multiview or Channel Preview on Roku

Rokus can only play one video at a time, so any multiview would have to be assembled on the server and then presented to the Roku as one video stream.
