m3u blackM3U Black [RIP Jan 2018]

Built for parsing RSS/M3u feeds without ADS. A public “ad-infested” red iptv player channel was approved for the public channelstore. When Roku removed the public channel for guideline issues, the private channel was removed by the developer.

Q: Do we have the source code for any of these channels? On GitHub?
A: No.


Q: What are non-certified channels? How to +ADD?

A: For channel developers to beta test their channel to a limited audience. Developers should not attempt to grow their audience or promote their channel until after it has been made public.

Non-Certified channels can only be installed on a Roku device by using the channel’s dedicated access code (e.g. “FG324”) provided by the developer of the channel, and therefore are not found in the Roku Channel Store. Non-certified channels may be used by channel developers for testing, or to limit access to their channel to a smaller set of our users.  Users should take caution when using non-certified channels. 

Note: We will not list any “questionable” channels. If you find any channel issues, post/share in the comments.

Q: How do I add a non-certified channel to my Roku player?
A: To download and install a non-certified channel:

  1. Go to my.roku.com on your computer or smartphone.
  2. If prompted, sign in to your Roku account.
  3. Under Manage account select Add channel with a code.
  4. Enter the channel access code received from the channel provider and select Add Channel.
  5. Acknowledge the warning message that appears:
