Many Roku Channels are Open Source
No better way to learn channel development than to look at the code of a working channel. Roku provides examples in their SDK kit, but having a “live” working channel is best.
Many developers put their source code out on GitHub and GoogleCode. As we find other repositories, we will list them here for easy access. If you know or have a repository not listed, please contact us.

What is a Roku Private Channel?
Roku private channels look and feel similar to channels found in the Channel Store, they are in fact, very different.
Roku does not review or approve private channels. So why would a developer choose to release a channel as a private channel instead of submitting it to the Roku Channel Store? A few reasons:
- The channel isn’t ready for the Roku Channel Store. Developers use private channels to test their apps during the development process.
- The channel contains content not appropriate for the Roku Channel Store. An adult-oriented channel is a good example of a channel that Roku would not publish publicly.
- The channel contains content that is confidential or intended for members or employees in a specific group or company.
In the unlikely event of a security issue, StreamFREE.TV will immediately remove any questionable listing and report the listing to Roku. So far, no issues have been reported.
