BBC 1, BBC 2, ITV, 4 etc., Live On Roku With “UKTV”.
Saw this channel in Saturday’s “Roku Guide” and, of course, had to subscribe — and at $1.99/month it is not exorbitant. Yes, it has all the channels listed above.
However, on a Roku, all you get is live streaming. So you have to watch BBC and ITV LIVE (though, in the case of ITV there is a ‘one hour back’ option (as indicated by the +1)). There is no DVR capability or ‘Catch-Up TV’ function to watch anything other than the live feeds. There is also no program guide or info to tell you what you happen to watching on a given UKTV feed. Yes, there is an online listing but that is not available on the Roku,
All that said, for $1.99/month, it is nice to know that you can have ALL the BBC and ITV channels on your Roku. Now if I can find a DVR that lets me RECORD UKTV off the Roku.
