Re: CSPAN / CSPAN Channels

Jump to solution

c-span.org is better than nothing but I think it is basically viewing a web page on your TV and is not the same as C-SPAN TV which includes C-SPAN, C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 channels.

I would guess that if Roku wanted to have C-SPAN TV it would have to contribute $ to supporting it, just like the cable TV providers are doing. Maybe Roku could offer it for a monthly fee to offset their expense. But, since it is hard to get C-SPAN TV on any of the streaming services (I think maybe 1 service (YoutubeTV ?) offers C-SPAN and maybe C-SPAN2 channels) it is an incentive not to drop cable. So maybe the cable companies will not want to let Roku play. I hope that is not the case since I think the original idea of c-span was to help keep the public better informed. We need that more than ever.

Perhaps we contact billionaire democrats asking them to donate to C-SPAN for the creation of a ROKU app for C-SPAN, C-SPAN2, and C-SPAN 3. These billionairs would be greatly interested in getting real Congressional footage to the less-wealthy voting public. What do you think?

Wow, that is a brilliant idea! Getting backers to break C-SPAN out of Cable Jail would definitely sort out who of that lot truly for the people.

The are not a public entity. They are a 503-c non-profit corp created in 1979 by Brian Lamb. Their board of directors had a lot of cable tv exec on it though. The fee of $.06 per subscriber was paid in 2012 by the cable companies to c-span so maybe a little bit more now. 

I would be willing to pay $5 a month or so to get all 3 C-span channels on ROKU as a paid stream.
