gratis contra game on roku


” The console will not allow access to the output of other applications on the system.”


least horrible option for limited playback of lan video

other menu codes

roku3 without credit card activation or other financial instrumentcreate roku account (for activation) without financial instrument.  Do NOT provide instrument to “easily delete it later” as roku is not trustworthy in that regard.  I have purchased several Roku3 and companion Blaze TV accounts as gifts; sadly there is neither a Fire TV app or vanilla android app for Blaze TV.

If you want to explore “free” channels (not-free: malware) be sure to do so from an android device with root and Xposed Framework plugins:  XPrivacy Pro and UnbelovedHost, and LuckyPatcher (remove adware).
