If your a news fan like me this app is streaming great! Some links don't work but dont be discouraged because you have many other news links to choose from. Also, it only takes maybe 1-2 seconds to find out if the channel is not live unlike some streaming programs that can take up to 20-30 seconds. This app also has HD quality streaming.

Thank You

Flakey as hell. Stuttering & stalls black screen "loading" message,

Quite a few "MSNBC Live Stream" (from MSNBC.com) on Roku, is on an puzzling half hour delay.

A MSNBC issue: That f-ing annoying short, repeative loop music during commerical breaks??!! CBSN doesn't do this crap.

I can find many unreliable (taken down quickly for copyright) YouTube grey area live streams of "MSNBC International", which is the regular US channel, except nothing but promos/PSAs during breaks.

Still no CNN; just CNNI.

MSNBC is not "LIVE".
Are other channels on real LIVE time?

Definitely my fave new go to channel!

The only issue I've ever encountered on this channel is that the CBS News feed is two days behind. However I can see it through other channels so it's not a huge issue.

Thanks for your hard work!

I check FOX & CNN & they still won't open....the screen says tested w/open DNS
That is a Cisco program that filters unwanted content, I don't have that installed.
Why won't those sites open when all the others do work???

No RDI or French Channels ? - I've decided to concentrate on an English channel for now, will probably work on a French channel later. Stay tuned.

CTV / CBC : No links (m3u8) that are available now. Sorry.
CNN - Works in Canada using OpenDSN
Fox News - Works in Canada using OpenDNS
i24 News - They are hosted on Dailymotion, so every 1 or 2 days the link change and i need to get a new one.

An input to the Author of this channel...great channel nonetheless, BUT you should do updates like XTV does.....any channels that do not work anymore, simply remove them & add them back on when they do work....example among others > CNN (USA) has not been working for long & still is on list, people might think it works with each update....BUT great channel though, just my 2 cents on keeping it clean.
