Hidden Roku Channels What Are They?


Hidden Roku Channels are channels which are not listed in the public Roku Channel Store. They often call these channels Private Roku Channels. Or another name used by Roku for these type of channels is "Non-Certified Roku Channels."  

Unpublished and hidden Roku channels exist for several reasons.

  1. The channel is still a beta channel and is not ready yet to be included publically. 
  2. If a channel contains copyright content, it's quickly removed. Sometimes developers try to fly under the radar with private hidden channels to make them last longer. But if the channel becomes popular, these will not last for long before Roku takes them down.
  3. Roku forbids channels that contain adult XXX content, or nudity listed in their public store. So they must remain private and hidden.
  4. A channel developer may only share some hidden Roku channels with a small groups of individuals.
  5. Then there are those hidden channels which also have a corresponding public channel. The developer may simply publish a duplicate channel and make it public. Often private channels are accessible from other countries where the Public Roku channel store may not be accessible.

More About Adult Roku Channels

Just because Adult channels are private and not in the public store, this does not mean that they don't rival some of the more well known public Roku channels. They built some adult channels to the same high quality standard and they contain as much content that's available on Netflix, Hulu, Prime Video and others.

Many adult channels have been available to watch on Roku since the beginning.
