    Roku is a bit restrictive. Had much better luck with a $30.00 (frequent reductions from $39.95 on Amazon) Fire Stick plugged into an HDMI port on my tv.

    They can take just about any Android App. Lot's to choose from and you can google about how to get any third party apps on your Firestick, lots of how to guides.I have a bunch on mine, the learning curve is easy. Have seen many channels, shows and movies that way, for free.

      I have just got a Firestick for me, and I like it so much. There are indeed lots of great guides online which can help you get anything you want. Soo cool

    I do screen mirroring sometimes from my Android phone running wifi to my Roku plugged into the TV HDMI.

    Not sure about MSNBC Live being free to watch, but anything you can watch on the web can be screen mirrored on a Roku.

    I think Hulu via Roku might have MSNBC.

  • Sign up for SlingTV and get the news add-on. Currently have it myself.

    Ray:

    Add the NBC News channel through your Roku account or the channel store on the Roku itself. It has access to MSNBC content.

    If you want me to go on arguing, you'll have to pay for another five minutes.

      Probably the best answer, as you normally pay $40.00 per month to get MSNBC

        I think the difference is streaming live TV vs old TV episodes.

          If he wants a live stream (legally), it appears he's going to have to pay for it via a skinny bundle like Sling, FubuTV, DirecTV Now, etc.

          Mirrorcasting from a phone would work if there's an accessible live feed.

    I checked Hulu, MSNBC Live is included in the $40 plan. Hulu can run on Roku.

    Way cheaper than cable or satellite TV If you already have DSL or better internet service.

    I use Hulu on Roku with DSL, works good.
