USTVNOW is available on Roku.When you sign up you can register for their free plan.Terrestrial channels(ABC,CBS,NBC CW,FOX,and PBS)are what you'll get in HD.After one month you have the option to upgrade to one of their paid plans.If you don't upgrade,then you can only watch on a computer,and only in SD.If you want to continue receiving channels in HD and watch on your Roku,you must upgrade to one of their paid plans.The cheapest paid plan has ABC,CBS,FOX,PBS,My9,Animal Planet,Bravo,Cartoon Network,CNBC,CNN,Comedy Central,Discovery,ESPN,Food Network,FX,Fox News,History,Lifetime,Nat Geo,Nickelodeon,Spike,Syfy,TBS,TNT,and USA Network.
They also have a premium tier which includes 6 HBO channels,6 Showtime channels,with up to 200 channels.
The premium tier is as expensive as a cable/sat.subscription,starting at $99.00/mo. IIRC the regular paid plan is $19.99 for the first 3 mos.,then $29.99/mo. thereafter.
I don't know how much of a "deal" this is,but it is nice to see it available on Roku for those who want it,AND here in the USA.

USTVNow's Internet content is available, at this time, only to US citizens and residents while they are in foreign countries. By registering I promise and warrant that my use of USTVNow is and will be consistent with this limitation.
I can see the free trial being of use for some while overseas but the market willing to pay for the service after that can't amount to much.

Funny thing Chris,i received an email from USTVNOW a coupla weeks ago telling me that if i already have cable,then i can create an account with them.I don't have cable/sat. and if i did, i wouldn't need to have an account with them.Kinda redundant.But later i read on another forum that they dropped that requirement.I haven't yet tried to create an account with them,but the email i received from them sure does lend some creedence to the claim i read on the other forum.
Kinda has me scratching my head.
