@Anonymous User they would have to build a Roku app first before NOW TV could consider adding it to their store.

It's not that simple, each device has a different framework and methods to play the video.

Their Android app is so rubbish that it took them 6 months to get it to work with Lollipop (although they claim they are ready for Marshmallow)

Not really, if the developers at UKTV don't make a Roku app, it'll never appear on the NOW TV box, and if they do, it would still need to go through the Sky approval process.

Appreciate the obstacles, but still would be nice.
