hpr2219 :: The Musings of a Novice Cable TV Cord Cutter

I've included various websites of the items I discussed in the podcast.

One thing I didn't mention in my podcast is that to use Roku streaming applications you go to the Roku store via your Roku device or via a computer browser and set up a Roku account. Once you have an account you have downloading access to the apps. Most of these apps are free but most premium service require a monthly fee which can be paid through Roku or the streaming service.

Roku Channel Store: https://channelstore.roku.com/browse

For apps not in the official Roku Channel Store there is an unofficial Roku Private Channels store. These are applications for Roku devices similar to the Kodi/XBMC plug-ins:

I AM NOT CONDONING PIRACY OR BREAKING OF DMCA LAWS!!!

I found a couple of apps in the Roku Private Channels store that can provide me access to ESPN if I wish to use them.

I don't condone piracy so use at your own risk:
