    Add more content to the Roku channel.  Not updated very often.

    @dwpenney: The Roku channel pulls from the same API as the rest of the apps... what content are you seeing? (and did you install our app? there may be others out there)

    Haven't tried it yet but I'm really excited this app is finally here. :-)

    One question, in case there's no support for Chromecast (again, haven't tried it yet), are there plans to include it in the future?

    Thank you!

    Hopefully AndroidTV (nVidia Shield TV compatible) version is coming soon?

    Great app. The iOS version that is. The windows app is not up to par. Doesn't show my que and I can't scroll back through past episodes like the iOS version.

     

    Why, I ask you. Why?

    Great, I love sitting on the couch and watching Channel9.

    Currently I click on the download video link on my Android phone, which starts the video in the browser, then I can send the HTML5 video to my TV with my Chromecast.

    Great! Installing on Roku.

    Waiting for the Android version though :)

    One question, are you planning on making the source code for these apps available? It would be very cool if you did.

    This is not a "great" app. It's basic at best. The app has been around for a couple of months, with no mayor updates.

    It needs a simple language filter! As interesting as those Japanese or Russian videos can be, I don't understand a word they're saying.

    Search doesn't work all that good either. Searching for "visual studio 2013" results in 4 (four) hits. All blog posts, no videos. No way in hell that search only finds 4 hits.

    Looks like a typical case of too much work too little resources to maintain.

    @Niner77779: Which app in particular are you talking about; we'd love to look into some of these issues

    @Niner421059:That's odd, my queue is missing from the Channel 9 Windows 8/8.1 app as well. That functionality is part of the app, so this must be a bug. 

    I can definitely scroll through past episodes though... click on a show like Visual Studio Toolbox and you should be able to scroll all the way back to 2011

    @Duncanma:It's the windows phone version.

    I'm using version 1.0.0.36119 on a Lumia 830 with WP8.1 update 2 (version 8.10.15148.160)

    @Niner421059: You should be able to see your queue now, I found a bug in that code and fixed it. Let me know if you have any more problems with it, happy to take a look!

    It's cool to have a Roku channel for Channel 9 content. I'd like to request that the amount of content available through the Roku channel be expanded to allow full access to the Channel 9 content. For example, I'd love to be able to see all the Build 2015 videos via the Roku Channel.
