The Nvidia Shield may be the most powerful streaming box on the market but like any product, it has some drawbacks. Its greatest drawback is that its apps are all lined up from right to left on the home screen which is ok when you only have a few, but can be cumbersome when you have 40. Using an app right out of the Shield’s Google Play Store you can change this. The app, called TV Launcher 3 has been available for Android devices for some time and its port to the Android TV platform is polished and easy to use. Take a look at how it works.

Video review of the CW channel for Roku

The CW app for Roku lets users watch all of its shows for free.

The CW channel for Roku is easy to use and best of all its totally free. Unlike a number of network based Roku channels users can access everything on the CW channel without the need to sign in to the channel with a cable password. This means that for cord-cutter CW fans the CW world is yours for the viewing. The entire lineup of CW shows will be available in season and will feature the last five episodes of any show in-season. That means you have at least a month to watch any of your favorites before the season moves on. You may remember that was the case with CW shows on Hulu also.

If you have not had your fill of politics after about two full years of ads, debates and constant news coverage then you are probably looking forward to the first presidential debate this Monday. If you would like to take in the debate online we would like to share a few ways we have found about how to stream the Trump Vs Clinton debate.

One way you will be able to stream the debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump is via Twitter. The feed which will be available through Bloomberg will carry the debate on the quick hitting social media platform. It may be a great place to watch and contribute to a national discussion.

Like the two major party national conventions YouTube will be a place to watch the debate. And if the conventions were any indication it may be a very good place to do so.

The Streaming Stick is one of many well known Roku models.

How to Watch The Olympics on Roku? Its very easy with the NBC Sports channel. The channel taps into all of NBC’s Olympics related content and organizes all of the events into categories. It is easy to navigate and may be the best TV everywhere app to come along that we have ever taken a look at. With the sprawling amount of sports, contests and the myriad of channels that NBC is employing to offer comprehensive 2016 Olympics coverage the ability to access all of the events from one single place is just great.

Special note. NBC has a channel on Roku called NBC Gold. Despite the name, NBC Gold is not where you view Olympics events. What NBC has done is rebranded their NBC sports channel as the Olympics channel. In fact you can access the regular NBC sports channel by choosing the options using the * button. There is also a spanish version of the channel.
