Discovering Private Channels on the Roku

One day a few weeks ago my wife was working late so I decided to play around with the Roku and see if I could watch anything besides Netflix, Hulu Plus and Pandora, which I use everyday.  I started by looking at the Channel Store, a feature built into the Roku.  I found some free Channels that featured classic movies and TV shows that were in the public domain.  These will be nice some night when I feel like watching classic movies, but not an everyday channel.  Another channel I liked was a weather channel that showed my local weather complete with a radar view.  I like this Channel and use it often.

Then I had the idea to search Google for other Roku Channels and I stumbled on some "Private Channels".  I had to research what that means, but apparentlly private channels are ones that aren't ready for the Roku Channel Store for whatever reason, but are generally free if you know the Code.  All you have to do is find the Code for these private channels using Google and then enter the code into your Roku Account.  the channel pops up on the Roku right away.

I found a ton of private channels and I'm going to post them on this website to share with everyone.  My favorite private channel is called "Nowhere TV".  It has a huge selection of content from major channels like CBS as well as cable channels like HGTV, Food Network and CNN.  I found some of my favorite Cable TV shows like "House Hunters" on HGTV and "Throw-down with Bobby Flay".  I was even able to watch the NCAA Basketball Tournament Live through the Roku.  And amazeingly the quality was great. 

Now I just need to find a Channel that has my wife's favorite show "Gilmore Girls".  Okay I don't mind watching it either (Lorelai is very easy on they eyes!).
