Newgrounds on Roku 2011-09-19 18:11:06


If you own a Roku set-top device, we've developed a Newgrounds channel! It isn't listed in the channel store yet but you can install the beta with this direct invite link. The channel may take up to 24 hours to appear on your device.

Participants in Madness Day 2011 (this Thursday), epic fall and our Halloween Spooktacular this October will be next in line for showcase on the new channel, which is currently showcasing past Halloween entries alongside other classics.

Let me know what you think so far! We're excited that people can see some of the best of NG at 1080p.

Also, if you buy a Roku via that link, we get an Amazon commission. We're using those commissions to buy microphones for people who obviously need better recording devices for their movies; a few TOFA participants have already been upgraded!

In other news:

Voice Acting Contest 7 is underway.

The-Great-One has posted an interview with BoMToons.

MonoFlauta wants you to check out his Kickstarter project!

My dream of a NG TV channel are practically coming true!

When do we get unending reruns of your stint on attack of the show and viagra commercials?

Seriously though, my blu ray player has a nifty youtube application that lets me view my subscriptions (newgrounds included). Total awesomesauce.

Judging from all the Netflix and Hulu's everywhere I'm pretty sure it's US only.

Well recently, i am so suprised about the redesign of NG.

Also, if you buy a Roku via that link, we get an Amazon commission. We're using those commissions to buy microphones for people who obviously need better recording devices for their movies; a few TOFA participants have already been upgraded!

Wow, for those who entered the TOFA contest i feel so happy.

This is why I like Newgrounds so much. Any other flash site would've just pocketed that money.

Also, why hasn't the TV channel been done sooner? It makes so much sense it's unreal.

Response to Newgrounds on Roku 2011-09-19 19:31:43


this looks pretty awesome! Anything that lets me watch more Newgrounds sounds like an awesome idea. Can't wait for Madness day! Hopefully gonna make something awesome for Halloween this year, but we shall see.

Hopefully people will remember about all the Awesome Charity Accounts here on Newgrounds that people can donate to!

ill just leave this here

Can we recommend people who we think are suffering with terrible mics?
Not myself, I just got one. But there are probably a handful I could think of who have the worst equipment.

Are the flash movies being shown as videos or does Roku have some kind of flash player? Forgive me if that's a dumb question. I know nothing about Roku.

You should have just taken the picture and started a rumor about the redesign, and then when it comes out and looks nothing like this everyone will be disappointed! That would really brighten everyone's day!
