For those of you Blasting on older Roku devices, you may have noticed that TheBlast.FM app is no longer supported on those units. Roku has updated some of its standards, which makes TheBlast.FM app no longer usable on those old Roku units.
Our Roku app developer says There is no way to make the app backward compatible… and a new app has to be developed.”
He also says “The new app will still work on the older Roku 3 (from 2013) devices… not sure about anything before that. This is more than just a minor update and tweak. This will be a brand NEW app and I will have to charge some development fees.
It would cost $1,500 one time for Roku channel development.
Here are a couple of other ways you can listen to TheBlast.FM on your television if you are using an older Roku device:
1) You can still listen to TheBlast.FM’s four radio stations via the Tune In Radio aggregator app. The Tune In Radio app is free in the Roku store. Search for TheBlast.FM or for whichever of our radio stations you are looking for by name and you can listen for free in the Tune In Radio app.
2) Are you using a smart TV? If so, keep in mind that the HTML5 players on our website work in the browsers of smart TV’s.

TheBlast.FM stations recently changed streaming addresses for better connectivity from our main encoding site in Portland.
Streams are now hosted in San Diego and are much smoother, as internet routing changes had made the connection from Portland to the Washington, D.C. metro much less stable.
If you are listening on a third party media player, app or system on which TheBlast.FM stations don’t seem to be working anymore, and you can load our new streaming addresses manually, those are found here: https://blender.theblast.fm/home/other-streams/
Please notify us of any stream aggregators you use that need to be updated with streaming addresses.
If you had trouble recently listening to TheBlast.FM radio stations with our HTML5 players labeled 128k, 64k and 32k on our websites, those troubles are gone, as we have upgraded our streams to make them HTTPS-compliant.
The streaming addresses have also been updated in our Android, iOS, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire and Blackberry apps so you may need to restart those apps to make sure the new stream addresses are loaded. The old streaming addresses will go away soon.
We have a request in to our Windows/XBox/Alexa Skills app developer to change the addresses in those apps.

Some of the biggest names in “Christian Hip Hop” “(CHH)” are missing on this station, because many of them are caught up in racism, race-baiting, America-hating, “woke-ness”, and black liberation theology, none of which are Biblical. ALL lives matter. Equally.
1 Corinthians 1:27-31
But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”
Enter Kanye West. From outside of the walls of CHH. That’s a foolish thing, right? A “foolish” person…who got radically saved by the blood of Jesus Christ.
On The Blast Blender, we have started playing tracks off of his new album Jesus Is King.
God is using Kanye West…yes, Kanye West…to lead thousands of people unto Himself. Read more about it here:
