Never mind Sling TV, XTV and cCloud Roku Channels let you watch a ton of stuff for free!
XTV has live TV channels, movies, from around the world. It even has a James Bond channel where you can watch all the James Bond movies. This is my new favorite Roku channel. CBS News has amazing high quality.
Lately, these two channels have been getting a lot of attention from fans of the Roku media streaming platform. Because these private channels offer something different from the run of the mill public channels that seem to get released every other day in the Roku channel store. Neither channel contains ads, instead, they are loaded with useful live TV streams from many channels you previously could only find on cable.
If you are a Kodi user, you are probably familiar with IPTV streams. Until now finding IPTV live streaming TV channels on Roku have been pretty scarce.
What is IPTV?After having watched these channels some of you may be reaching for your phones to cancel Sling TV, Playstation Vue or iStreamItAll accounts. Not so fast, the streams on XTV and cCloud come and go. They are not like a commercial streaming TV service. What this means is they may not always be there. Just because you may be watching your favorite show on one of these channels today, does not mean it will necessarily be there the next time you turn the channel on.
Here is the definition of IPTV from Wikipedia:
Internet Protocol television (IPTV) is a system through which television services are delivered using the Internet protocol suite over a packet-switched network such as a LAN or the Internet, instead of being delivered through traditional terrestrial, satellite signal, and cable television formats.
There are so many Internet streams available online. Because the nature of IPTV it's like chasing rainbows, it takes work but when your find good streams it's like finding a pot of gold.
For those that were familiar with the old C-Band satellites, IPTV channels may bring back some memories.
