Been watching this last week or so. There's a cool Christmas fireplace and separate Christmas lights channel for background music over Christmas.

thanks


Your welcome. Never heard of it before. Just noticed it on the app store on my now tv stick and had a look. No premium channels on there but at least they are all free and legal 😁
Wanted to watch the unsolved mysteries channel but it's buffering badly keeps going to black screen with white swirling arrow (not my internet problem)
I love content!
Jobs advertised (lots of junior / part time / student stuff) with no address! Oh well, I won't plug my now tv box back in
just quite yet.

I've tested most channels and they seem to work ok. No buffering issues with anything (fibre 38mb) and quality looks to be decent sd rather than hd output

Ah i see. Yes i guess it's my fault for posting a link of the website rather than the app
I like the Surfing channel 209 , and the Chassy channel 501 which has race car stuff etc
Was just Googling the Roku Express Stick so perfect timing but I notice there's no Ethernet. My TV is in an upstairs bedroom directly above the router, will the signal be strong enough to stream or can anyone suggest a hard wired box I can use? (I already have an ethernet cable running upstairs)

The 2.4 ghz band should be fine direct signal through the ceiling. 5 ghz is better for short distances but faster usually overall
Just watched it not bad for free but honestly wouldn’t be watching it again all American crap
is this legal?

Sue I don't have now TV but it appeared on my Roku after I did an update. Not sure if that option is available on Now TV but if it is it may fix the problem.

Yes it is the white box , I also have a black one which I bought before this one . Looks like they are both out dated lol. Thanks anyway
Sounds like nonsense and hardly an essential TV experience???
Could be on fire stick soon then

It isn't essential. It's an option for some free legal TV which certainly at this time of year is good if only for some who don't have money to burn or even for those who like to have more choice. Have a nice Xmas 🎄

Yes fair enough, and its is a freebie, so not knocking that or the deal as such. Just saying it doesn't look too good. Merry Xmas

Thanks, I bought the Roku Express and it's a good strong signal (unlike the cheap knock off I was using). The only thing I didn't like was having to register my Paypal/ debit card as it seems too easy to pay for something by mistake. I've put a pin in to stop this happening.

I pay for Prime and my daughter pays for Netflix so I'm not stuck for choice but I will sideload Kodi at some stage

Thanks O/P I've downloaded Pluto and it's a wide variety of programs, I'm sure I'll dip in from time to time.

For those with genuine Roku-branded devices (i.e. not NOW TV products) you can add the app online via the Roku Web Channel Store (as well as via the built-in one on the Roku players themselves) so here's a direct link to the webpage for the app:-


Pluto TV - It's Free TV (UK Version)

No use for anyone with NOW TV sticks and/or boxes, as you've got to have a Roku device with an associated Roku account if you want to add the channel(s) to your media player, but thought I'd mention it here anyway as it may help some HUKD members.

According to this UK Roku blog, the UK version of the "Pluto TV - It's Free TV" channel (app) was released around the end of September / start of October 2018. It's the first one they've mentioned in their list of new Roku apps for that week:-

UK Roku Blog Post (feat. "Pluto TV - It's Free TV" app)


If I remember correctly, it was added to both UK Roku devices and NOW TV streaming products in the same week. The only sad part is that the 'UK Version' of the "Pluto TV - It's Free TV" Roku app doesn't have anywhere near the number of channels listed in the EPG that the U.S. equivalent offers. Hopefully they'll rectify this over time, by adding more live streaming and on-demand content to the UK one but, for now at least, it pales by comparison. That said, the extra Xmas channels are most welcome!

Setting up a PIN is a good idea, to prevent unwanted purchases, but (if you prefer) you can just sign-in to your Roku account online (my.roku.com) and "update" your payment information to remove any details you might have provided at the time you first registered. For those who may be looking at getting a Roku, and have yet to set-up an account, it's possible to skip the stage where you are asked to provide payment information by registering via an alternate webpage on the Roku website which allows you to sign-up without providing credit card details (my.roku.com/signup/nocc) and saves the bother/worry of data theft, etc.

Thanks, I bought the Roku Express... I will sideload Kodi at some stage



Unfortunately, it's not possible to side-load Kodi onto Roku products. You might want to consider PLEX and/or Emby instead, both of which have Roku channels (apps) available... or there's a few options for "mirroring" that could be an option, too.

Seems Mark has been successful in getting a decent enough signal but, for the benefit of others, 5 GHz is not an option with the Roku Express model since it only operates in the 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz range. If you want dual band functionality, the flagship Roku Streaming Stick+ operates across both the 2.4 GHz to 2.4835 GHz range and the 5.15 GHz to 5.25 GHz range. It costs a fair bit more but has better wireless reception and is capable of streaming content in 4K, rather than 'HD-only' like the Express.
