    SkyAngel Now In The Roku Channel Store

    I don't think it will offer Fave . I added it to my Roku , tells me to go to thier web site and purchase the "Roku Package " for SkyAngel , then link my Roku . (just like most purchase channels). Been 3 days and they still don't offer a Roku option , only PC , I Pad or their own IPTV box . Can't get much info on it , because they won't answer my online questions . Sure would like to try it . Guess they'll put the buy Roku option out some day .

    Honestly Sky Angel might shoot themsleves in the foot by doing this........a fair amount of the channels are already on Roku and free.

    I'm not sure why SA* is so hesitant (seemingly?) to out their full packages on Roku. I understand that Roku can easily geoblock, so there should be no issue with territories. I can't believe there are security issues, because if that was the case, E* and TWC would not use it. I think more so than the Faith packages, FAVE TV could be a huge hit on roku.
    Maybe SA* licensing agreements only cover the SA* / NeuLion box? And not Roku? But that doesn't seem right either.

    Probably because they couldn't charge you a stb fee like they can with their NeuLion boxes. FAVE TV would be a great alternative if you were able to dvr programs easily. Those Volcano boxes aren't the best.

    They finally got the Roku option available a few days ago . I tried the free 48 hour trial . I like the way they have it set up , with program line up guide for each channel . The channels offered (with out fave ) have better program line up than I thought . $14.99 a month still might be more than I'm willing to pay . If they offer fave on Roku. , I'd surely give it serious consideration .

    Admittedly, SA* actually set a standard with their app design and integrated program guide. It'd be nice if other live tv providers did something similar. But I also agree it seems odd that several of their channels already have free Roku apps. (Note: I don't mind the fact SA* offers those channels as well, but it seems to reduce the overall package value in this situation.)
    Also, I haven't signed up for a trial or a paid package, but I don't see the radio channels anywhere. Surely most of the radio feeds could be offered on Roku.
