A Closer Look at Roku Private Channels
Roku private channels or otherwise called as non-certified channels. They are a part of the Roku channel store but it will be hidden. A channel can be private for various reasons. For instance, the channel may be under testing or beta mode, it may have illegal contents, or otherwise violates terms, geo-restrictions in countries like US, UK, etc and conditions of Roku. Such channels can be installed on Roku with a valid channel code. So, it will not be available when you browse the Roku Store using your remote. Despite this, Roku shows the warning message as given below and we recommend you to be cautious while installing a Roku private channel.
