I did watch BB Canada live online If I could do the same for the US version whether on the computer or Roku that would be fine. Can't cancel/pause Dish until July 27th so I will see how it goes.

Yeah I have been searching private channels They might be the ones not working? Not sure Popcornflix wasnt working but is now for some movies (was just checking it out)

Retrovision which is a private channel will show the logo and then go back to my channels

Now watching videos on Vevo! LOVE IT!!

Now if I can just find a way to watch BB this summer without Dish/cable I might cancel/pause my dish

So you have to subscribe to Roku? If so... How much is it?

Is it different than something like AppleTV?

There is no cost for Roku except to purchase the Roku itself.

Yeah there is no subscription to Roku, but there are subscriptions to certain providers, like Netflix and Hulu. Some are free.

You should get Crackle, although it's mostly older movies but it's all free. And there is a private channel called MediaFly, and PBS just released their channel as well.
