Roku Private Channels & Codes
What are “Private | Non-Certified Channels”?
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. For example, a company might develop a channel that contains training videos for franchisees.
Are there Adult Roku Private Channels? Yes. That is all that really remains active.
Currently, there is no adult content available in the Roku Channel Store. However, some private channels may contain adult content. Private channels can only be added to your Roku player with a code from the channel developer using your account login information. Rest assured you are always in control over what kind of content appears on your player. Source: Roku.com (since removed)
- Many of the leading adult entertainment publishers have published official Roku Adult channels.
