Channel PEAR will let users add a new world of sources to their Roku players.

The channel, (which is spelled correctly this way) started as a project by development company Jidly looking for a way to play MRS playlists. It becoming is a multi-purpose tool that adds multiple media services in an online database that users can edit. It also allows users to access free to air Internet based media and link personal files to a cloud-based system where their files will be accessible without the need of a local server (computer) in order to access it. The idea reminds me of Plex or XBMC. Users can customize their choices using Internet sources as well as their own personal playlists and keep the entire set up private. Once set up users can watch live TV on a Roku with Channel PEAR.

  1. This app is a rip off. They want 36.00 per year for you to have unlimited access to bootlegged URL’s that get you copyrighted content that the developers do not own. Not only is the legality of this app questionable, but the idea that folks would actually pay a third party for content the party does not own is just rediculous. The software developer claims that you are not paying for access to channels, but that is exactly what you are doing. You are allow a number of channels, but to use the features that allow you to watch all the premium channels you would wish to add results in you being required to pay. This app is just waiting to be shut down by the copyright owners and I would sure not want my name and log in on the sites records when they get busted.

  2. @Bill:

    First of all, it’s free. You don’t have to pay. Second, if you do go premium – you’re not paying for the channels, you’re paying for an unlimited online cloud-based media library that you can add whatever you want to. The media database with the third party content is just a cool extra feature for members of the channel PEAR community to share various stuff they find with eachother. The real scam is paying for a service like wowtv or machtv when you can do the exact same thing on channel PEAR for free. Do your research and don’t just jump to conclusions.

  4. Not worth the free cost on my Roku! Lucky if it streams anything for more than 15 minutes before it stops and tries to load again. Quite often less than 5 minutes. Sometimes it just continues to play and load every 30 seconds or so. Nice idea, terrible app on the Roku. Useless!!
