How to watch episodes from Season 3 of "Downton Abbey" if you have ROKU

Seasons 1 & 2, I think, are on both Netflix and Hulu+.
This is for the season currently airing on PBS.


1) Add NowhereMan's "Nowhere TV" channel if you don't have it already: https://owner.roku.com/Add/H9DWC

2) select the Nowhere TV channel on your ROKU

3) scroll down the horizontal categories to the PBS category

4) scroll right until you get to the selection that says simply "PBS" and select it (it's right next to "PBS NEWSHOUR")

5) scroll right until you get to "Downton Abbey" and select it

6) select the episode(s) you want to watch

ta-da.

1. Thanks!

We've been DVRing them so far, but it's nice to have a backup, just in case.

2. In PBS? I don't see Downton Abbey as a choice...

I see Nova, NewsHour etc but no Downtown Abbey! Can anyone else see it now? (Jan 16, 2013)

3. Select the green PBS logo right between NOVA and PBS News Hour,

and that brings up American Experience, Frontline, Austin City Limits, Great Performances, Downton Abbey, and Ken Burns.

It's possible that it might not appear in Nowhere TV if your ROKU hasn't loaded any pending channel updates in a while. Usually popping in and out of the Channel Store is enough to make it update, but sometimes you have to remove a channel and then add it back in.

5. You can also watch on your computer at the PBS website (link) / "limited time"

some people seem to be having trouble getting it to stream through Roku
