But you can get the app for your smart phone or join on YouTube I think if you don't have cable:thumbup:

We just hooked up Roku this week, but I can't seem to find a search option.

Any advice?

Thanks,

Hi Angel, Yes, I have Roku and Sling and am very happy with cutting the cord. I hope they expand the Billiard channel in the future. Here is a link to the Roku Guide website which is very helpful for newbies and has great links to new channels.

I think that a Roku is a device kind of like a DVD player, but it is used for hooking your internet to your TV, and it is used for online streaming services like Netflix for one, among many other services that offer online TV shows and movies to stream online. I think it has been around for awhile, and is not that expensive. I always wondered about them.

Roku is one of the greatest tools for watching pool!!!
Make sure to get this channel. It's free. Many other great things on it from NASA (Max Eb. would love this lol) to Osprey nests to drag racing and.......
POOL!! And more POOL!!

https://www.rokuchannels.tv/nowherestream/

It has a search function. Put Billiards in and most stuff comes up.
I also search AZB, POV, On the Rail (fast lenny) etc. Sometimes they are on but don't appear in the Billiards search.
Everyone needs this!! I love it!!! And no pop in commercials!

ENJOY!!!
**ESPN 3 is another one. It's rare but they do have 1 or 2 streams a year.

Oh forgot the OP.
I have that channel on mine too.
Not always on, but I think I caught a current Inside Pool stream on it a few wks. back.:smile:

I watch You Tube through it too. (easier to navigate than my smart TV)
Plenty of Pool on there for sure!

BTW get the Roku 3. Faster. Better remote. Among other things.

Yea I agree about the Roku 3. Really like the voice search option. I have two of them one for each set and I also have the Orange & Blue Sling options. I used to have Comcast for all my internet and TV services which cost me about $190.00 per month. Now I have high speed internet at $69.99 per month and the Sling at $40.00 per so I am saving around $80 per month. So far me and the wife are pretty happy with it and real happy to say goodbye to cable TV.. The five minute commercial spots were ridiculous..

I have Apple TV and watch you tube thru it. Maybe I should jail break it and then be able to get billiards and cycling

Great set up. Mine doesn't have voice command.
I set up an neighbor's Roku 2 and the first thing I noticed was the remote.
Had to point it just right. (it uses IR)
The 3 uses radio frequency and can point anywhere.
Also great for games. I bought Galaga for $5. Ha.

My brother Is all about Apple. It's nice especially if u have other Apple products.
Hopefully u can get that channel I linked above.
The BEST for live pool!

Sounds cool.
Roku is becoming mainstream, which I consider to be a good thing. Leaving the land of eye-breathing, zero-footprint, getting arrested for collecting rain water, off the grid, vegan, hemp wearing hipsters and entering the world of BACON. It's a good thing people.

Please explain. I've been using kodi for months to stream my media from my PC. I haven't even tried to dig into any of its other functions.

Looks like it's gone.
It was in the Phoenix add-on. The users folders have been reduced..

Btw, one can install this on PC or MAC.

So far me and the wife are pretty happy with it and real happy to say goodbye to cable TV.. The five minute commercial spots were ridiculous..

I cut the cord with cable and satellite as well and it has saved me a lot. DirecTV kept increasing my bill each month when I was under a two year contract and as soon as the contract expired I cancelled and subscribed to Netflix and Hulu Plus. Later down the road I tried Sling TV for a few months while The Walking Dead and Fear The Walking Dead were airing. In my experience one of the big downsides to cutting the cord was that I missed out on college football games that did not air on any of the ESPN channels. I bought a small HD antenna to pick up over-the-air channels but I am unable to pick up any channels due to interference from tall trees, even though there are stations within the advertised range of the antenna.
Just a helpful tip: you should be able to save money by dropping the Sling Orange package and leave Sling Blue. With Sling Orange you can only watch one stream at a time but with Sling Blue you can watch different streams on multiple devices. Here is a link to an FAQ about multiple streams: http://help.sling.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/Can-I-watch-Sling-TV-on-multiple-devices-at-the-same-time-13
