What is a “Private Channel | Non-certified”?

UPDATED: July 2017

Non-certified channels cannot be found in the Roku Channel Store. Non-certified channels are built by Roku developers who wish to reach a specific audience without making their channel available to all Roku customers. Instead, a unique “channel access code” (e.g. “FG324”) is used to add the channel to your account. source: Roku

Old version:

A “Private Channel” is a channel or application that a Roku channel developer distributes outside the Roku Channel Store. A developer may decide to create a private channel if they want to reach a specific audience (for example, a corporate audience) without making their channel available to all Roku customers.

 

Roku is an open platform, allowing developers to create new and exciting channels that may some day appear on the Roku Channel Store after a stringent approval process.  Private channels are are not suitable for the average Roku user.  They have not been approved for general distribution by Roku, and may be generally unstable. Roku does not warrant the use of private channels and does not provide support for them.

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 (ie. Beta). Developers use private channels to test their apps prior to submitting.
  • Developers like the freedom to make changes immediately without having to re-submit for approval.
  • A developer may decide to create a private channel if they want to reach a specific audience.

We only list publicly available private channels from various social media outlets.  We do not guess or post codes against developer’s terms.
