Roku and tvcatchup
Posted: Sun 11 Feb 2018 19:01
I'm thinking of buying a Roku, but need to be certain of getting tvcatchup or tvplayer on it. I already access tvcatchup on my smart (well, fairly intelligent) tv and on all three of my computers, but it's a drag lugging a laptop up the stairs to plug it into my dumb tv set. I'd rather plug in a Roku and access the Internet wirelessly. Is this feasible ? Or even faisable ?

Im fairly sure most Android boxes, will allow you to install the Apps you mentioned
Is the Roku Android
I use a Minix X9 android box,
If you want a definitive answer on the Roku and the apps you mention
I would search on a Roku forum
If you elect to buy a Minix, which the brand Ive used for four years
there is a Minix forum
you could search there for the apps you mention
You mention wirelessly, any Android box will work wirelessly
or wired, see rj45. Wired of course will give you a better connection to internet
Any Android Box, connected to your Dumb TV using HDMI or VGA , will transform your Dumb TV to a full Android box, think of like connecting an Android phone or tablet to your TV

I wouldnâ€™t buy buy a Roku for this, it doesnâ€™t run Android, I donâ€™t believe TVcatchup is available and you canâ€™t run a VPN on it.
You would be far better to buy an Android TV box which will give you a far greater choice of applications and much greater flexibility.
I bought a Roku a few years ago and found it quite disappointing.
