The Roku Web Service API returns JSON and XML data with verifying purchases, canceling subscriptions, issuing credits or refunds, and updating billing cycles.
The service streams video from affiliated providers via wireless or wired network connections to television sets and other video display devices. Applications can establish public or private channels, paid or free of charge, to provide media content to end-user devices. The provider's SDK supports the creation of code that, when uploaded to the service, will retrieve and display media resources.
API methods support detection of device models, authentication of end users and account management, control of user interactions with the platform, and grouping of categories, episodes, etc. with navigation to desired content. Methods also support handling of media resources, including specification of playback formats and streaming from designated sources.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
