Roku Newscaster

Roku Newscaster used to be the primary source of news on Roku, but the channel is now a shell of what it once was. Some of the news networks have created their own Roku channels, while others have changed their videos to formats that are incompatible with the Roku. Still, there are news shows here that will be of interest to many Roku users, so Roku Newscaster isn't dead yet.
