I am a programmer. I moved to Canada some time ago, and was trying to get Public Greek Channels to watch, so I made an app for this.
Can I watch PayTV?
Everything in the app is publicly available. You will not find NOVA or paytv here, just publiclly available channels. Full list of channels currently available at this moment is at : https://greektv.page/status
There are plenty of ways to watch. This particular website is about GreekTV in the Roku. You can search for the channel in the Roku channel search interface. Here are the direct links to add this channel to your Roku : Greek TV Lite US (Only in US - Free - Ad Supported) Greek TV Lite (Only in Canada & UK - Free - Ad Supported) GreekTV - (US &Canada - $1.99)
No, I am doing this just to pay the server expenses. There is a system behind all this, checking dead channels etc, server hosting and other technical things that cost $$.
How do I know if a channel will work for me without installing the roku app
Visit this page. If the channel is there, Green, for your country (for example CA,US,GR,IE) and is not youtube, it will be most likely available. There is a scoring system and a regular check that modifies this list regularly. You can try opening the links in the list using a player like VLC
How can I contact you
You are welcome to join my public telegram channel : https://t.me/greektvchannel This is the only place that you can find me. Used to have a facebook group but facebook decided to close it.
Why my Roku player doesnt play all those youtube channels I see in the status page
Roku will only play the hls (m3u8) files and the mp4 files. nothing else - for now! This is a software/hardware limitation. Same is for other platforms, like AndroidTV, where you can only link to the youtube URL.
