Roku Private Channels
Roku private channels are also known as non-certified channels. They are a part of the Roku store but they are hidden due to various reasons. These reasons can be that the app is under development or the app is in beta version or the app contains illegal content or the app is not available in your area like the USA, UK, etc or the app violates the policy. To install such apps you need a channel code. These apps will not be available on your Roku store when you search them and Roku may show you the following caution message.
“THIS IS A NON-CERTIFIED CHANNEL. Roku requires all channels to abide by Roku’s terms and conditions and to distribute only legal content. Roku does not test or review non-certified channels. By continuing, you acknowledge you are accessing a non-certified channel that may include content that is offensive or inappropriate for some audiences. Moreover, if Roku determines that this channel violates copyright, contains illegal content, or otherwise violates Roku’s terms and conditions, then ROKU MAY REMOVE THIS CHANNEL WITHOUT PRIOR NOTICE AND YOUR ACCOUNT MAY BE BLOCKED FROM ADDING ANY OTHER NON-CERTIFIED CHANNELS.”
We recommend our users be very cautious while downloading such apps.
