Is there a good reason why an official Roku app for Twitch.tv (or Justin.tv) hasn't been developed?
Currently the unofficial Justin.tv app available to Roku users is very inconsistent and laggy, and the picture quality is very poor. But this is all because the app is really just a mirrored version of an unofficial mobile device app.
Are there any plans in the near future to develop an app for the Roku?
Usually this comes down to demand and resources (hours to develop and cost). We are working on some new app technologies, but not Roku specific.
Thanks for the suggestion.
We have been discussing internally a developer program. We need to setup the parameters still. We’ll announce if/when this goes live.
We hear this sorta works: http://www.strayed.co.uk/2013/04/01/watch-justin-tv-twitch-tv-on-your-roku/
But that is not an official application.
We do not have a Roku app in the works at this time, nor an ETA on such.
