Quick Look: VHX is a commercial service that allows creators to sell or rent their videos, whether they be films, documentaries, web series, or musical performances directly to fans, who can then view those videos
on the Roku VHX channel.
To view any content on the VHX channel, you will need to create a free account at www.vhx.tv/roku. However, you cannot purchase videos through the channel, so don't bother loading it unless you've rented or purchased a video package through the VHX website. The website, though, is oriented strictly toward those who want to sell, not those who want to buy. The menu specifically states that VHX is for creators, distributors, crowdfunders, and developers... not a single mention about VHX being for viewers. Unless you've stumbled across content elsewhere that you find is available on VHX, you're better off going elsewhere for video entertainment.
