    I could not find any m3u playlist player on Roku. According to this web page, you posted this about 2 months ago. So, did Roku take it down in the last two months? I have read a lot of forums that had posts dating as far back as 2013 which said the same thing about the m3u playlist player not being available. If what I said is not true, could you point me in the right direction to find and install this channel on my Roku 4 and Roku Ultra?

    Hi – The Roku m3u Playlist Player is not available on the Roku Canadian website (www.roku.com/en.ca). Should I open a Roku.com (US) account and install it from there ?
