Traditional Catholic Roku Channel?

  • Are there any traditional Catholic Roku channels?

    Roku has any number of "private" channels --- not on their official list, but accessible via codes provided by whatever entity runs the channel.

    And if there isn't one, wonder how much it would cost, and what would be involved, to start one?

    It sounds like a Japanese snack.

    Roku is an over-the-top (OTT) television streaming services that allows access to a huge number of video sources, some free, some available only by subscription.  Moreover, anybody with a server and a video source can create their own channel.  It's not free to do that --- I don't know what the costs are, I don't think they're astronomical, but they do exist.  Your ISP might also have an issue with your account being used to stream outbound video to multiple viewers.  Roku is a hybrid of "poor man's cable" and "narrowcasting" to serve specialized niche audiences.  You can also access most of the larger commercial subscription sites (Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, Netflix, Disney Plus, et al), though curiously enough, not NBC's new OTT service Peacock.  There are several free international news sites --- Sky News, France 24, Tagesschau (German ARD network), RT, and many others.  There is one interesting Russian-language channel, Rossiya 1 (I barely understand Russian), but so far, it seems to be only one show, some kind of Russian Jerry Springer show or something.  Interesting mix.

  • This seems to be on par with “Christian Rock music.“

  • Why would a traditional Catholic have Roku anyway?  Television is a brainwashing tool. 
    Just like rock music.

  • I think that there's a lot of Traditional Catholic material on Youtube.  But, of course, more and more of that is being censored.  Go ahead and have a show on Roku talking about the evils of ɧoɱosɛҳųαƖity and you can begin counting down to being banned.

  • Does anyone know if there's a traditional Catholic Texas Hold 'Em channel?

  • You can stream Archbishop Lefebvre's documentary on Roku according to the Angelus Press:

    I also found Catholic Underground TV thinking it was a traditional catholic Roku channel but it's far from it. Their website says trash like:

    "Popes Paul VI, John Paul II, and Benedict XVI have all repeated the call of the Second Vatican Council to use any and all available media to evangelize and catechize people throughout the world and now that call requires very few resources and skills to accomplish." - Catholic Underground TV

    and...

    "The Catholic Underground exists to explore the intersection of the Catholic Faith and the work of modern technology."
