Well, to get back on topic, I believe somewhere in the labyrinth of the Roku Pluto channel there is also Al-Jazeera news, which offers a European perspective on the news which is less British-centered than Sky News.

It's also possible to get "Washington Week in Review," and several headline-only type news channels; one that comes to mind is called "Newsy."

As I mentioned before, if your dad could be happy with comedies, dramas, movies, and news, he would be happy with a Roku. If certain sports are important to him, you might have to buy a single channel extra - which shouldn't cost all that much.

Kind of got some of this sorted out browsing for hours through Pluto. Next step is to find Michigan basketball by Saturday.

Very interesting. This should be a sticky at the top of this thread

Although I would never subscribe to any of these services, for someone who needs to see the games live (or dead) I'm sure this should work well, if you find the particular channel you like on one of them.

This looks interesting. Not sure if it will work on Roku, probably not to start.

There isn't a Roku channel for it yet. The service was just introduced this week.

Most cord cutters are familiar with those options. This isn't really the cordcutter forum anyway.

No, you're right. It isn't the cordcutter forum. But he did say these ones would work with the Roku so it might be that some people would think of adding one or other of them.
