Not sure if people are aware, but it is possible to get a YouTube channel on their Roku - I've only just discovered it myself.


There is a side-loadable ZIP file available here that allows you to load an "un-official" YouTube channel to your Roku.


As it is side-loadable, it can also be added to the Now TV box, but it will overwrite any other side-loaded app already installed, such as the MB3 Roku app.


I have it installed onto my daughter's Roku 2XS and she uses it to watch "MineCraft" videos.


She has watched a lot of these videos and hasn't complained once about any problems, so it is fairly stable.


More information can be found here.

With the Roku 3, you can install the YouTube channel from the Roku store. That is how I have it available.

Just one of the advantage of owning a Roku 3.
