We Will Roku!

One of the most important things to us at Murfie is making it easy to listen to your music however you like to.  That’s why we created our streaming web player, iOS and Android mobile apps and built a public API to integrate with cool devices like Sonos and VOCO.

Another cool device we get a lot of request for is the Roku streaming player.  We’ve been experimenting with making Murfie available as a Roku Channel for awhile and while it’s not quite ready yet, we’re at a point where we’d like to get some feedback from regular Roku users about what we’ve done so far.

So, if you’re feeling adventurous, have a Murfie account and are Roku fan, we’d love to hear what you think about the channel so far!  Since this is an “experimental” channel you won’t find it in the Channel Guide yet, but here’s how you can add the Murfie Channel to your Roku devices:

  1. Go to https://owner.roku.com, login to your account and click the “My Account” link in the top-right corner
  2. Click “Add a Private Channel
  3. In the private channel box, enter “murfiebeta” and click “Add Channel
  4. Confirm by clicking “Yes, Add Channel

Once this is done the Murfie channel should appear on your Roku devices within 24 hours.  If you can’t wait that long, go to Settings > System Update > Check Now on your Roku device and the Murfie channel should be available as soon as the update completes.

Remember that the Murfie Roku Channel is still experimental so don’t be surprised if you find some bugs lurking in there.  That said, if you do run into any trouble we’d love to hear from you, and we’re particularly interested in what Roku fans think about the channel.  We’ll then incorporate all of the bug reports and feedback into future versions of the Channel, and once we think it’s awesome we’ll release it from the laboratory.
