WeatherFlow Data on ROKU

I think I have it figured out, I’m new to this process.

When publishing a ROKU channel the publisher needs to select the areas of the world to make it available. I neglected to select areas outside the USA.

I have gone back in and selected Canada (I actually selected everything).

ROKU publishes during predefined release windows. My republish is scheduled for March 8, 2022 at 10:00am PST. Check back then and let me know.


Thanks. That’s probably why I can’t see it yet. I will let you know if it shows up then.

Hello, I have downloaded the channel and works well.
May I ask for a couple of changes for those of us who work (reluctantly - I come from an older generation) with the metric system. Average wind and wind gust is commonly expressed in kilometers per hour. An option to change wind direction to user’s choice - ie. cardinal.
Many thanks Steve. You’ve done a great job!

I’m glad republishing it to other countries made it available and you were able to download it !!

Great suggestions which I can add sometime very soon. Once I make the changes I’ll post on here to let you know and because you have the channel installed you’ll automatically get the update.

Thanks for the feedback !!

Weather Station Data Viewer v2 was published today and displays wind in km/h and Cardinal direction.

See my post about for some details.

Thanks for implementing the changes. Works fine and I have taken down the weather site as we be leaving for our trip across Canada at the end of April. I will let you know when we arrive and have a site set up in Nova Scotia on the East Coast. Cheers…

Hello, I’m now somewhat settled in Welshtown, Nova Scotia, Canada. Waiting for a modular house to be delivered in the fall.
The Weather Data for Roku works fine and if you have time could you please look at the pressure as it doesn’t appear to display correctly.
Lightning in this area would also be a valuable addition.
Many thanks,

Here’s the discrepancy:

  • The WeatherFlow phone app & webpage displays pressure at sea-level
  • My app is displaying pressure at the station.
    Both values are included in the raw data.
    After researching I found that sea-level pressure is the standard reporting unit.
    I am going to make the change and evaluate adding some lightning data.
    As long as you are using v2 the update should happen automatically. This will be my first try at auto-updating the channel, fingers crossed.

Thanks Steve. I’m sure those of us appreciate your work on this. It would be interesting if you could know how many users of the the app there is and where.

There are currently 750 users of the app, ROKU does not indicate where in the world they are.

The current round of updates are complete and published. Your ROKU will eventually apply the update on its own; if you would like to force the update:
Arrow over to the the app > Select the * > Check for updates > OK to exit

Update includes:

  • Changed Barometric Pressure from station location to sea-level
  • Added Lightning Strike counts for previous 1hr & 3hr
  • Added “Feels Like” temperature

Point of note, you WILL NOT need to re-enter your station number(s).
I seem to have mastered updating with the proper keys to eliminate that hassle.

Enjoy . . . .


Hi Steve, The Canadian version “Feels Like” has been used by Canadian Meteorological people by a calculation of the Humidex and is as follows:
The humidex is similar to the heat index but is widely used in Canada where the heat index is not. It equals H = T + (0.5555 * (e - 10)), where T is the temperature in Celsius and e is the vapor pressure in millibars (mb).Aug 13, 2011

I don’t know if this is used in other countries but for Canada is more relevant.
Thanks, Hal

I’m intrigued . . . I’ve never heard of Humidex.
I did a little research, and it appears Canada is the only place (that I can find) that uses “Humidex”.

I think my ROKU app could display Humidex, I will need to determine if the station is in Canada based on the lat/lon, but that can be done.

My ROKU App has been recognized as one of WeatherFlow’s “top 10” integrations!!

Re: WeatherFlow Data on ROKU

The latest release of my ROKU app to display WeatherFlow data was released today!!

The biggest feature of the new version is the addition of the 5-day forecast.


On your ROKU device:
Home>Streaming Channels>Search Channels>“weatherflow data viewer v3”

If you already have the app, highlight the app and select *, “Check for updates”.

I am always looking for useful improvements to the app; please reach out to me for enhancements you would like to see.

I’m considering adding battery voltage to the “Manage Stations” screen, does anyone think that is useful or would be a waste of time?


Hey TwoDogs,
Little teaser here, the ROKU App “WeatherFlow Data Viewer v4” will release on

Thank you, thank you. Canada thanks you!

Downloaded it this morning, I love it!! Great job​:+1::+1:

I have version 5 running on my Roku but it is no longer working. When I put in my station number it can not find it anymore. Am I missing something or is Roku no longer supporting this app?

Your observation is correct the application is not working.

Something has changed in the environment as I have not made changes to the application since 4/4/23.

I am in the process of troubleshooting and will post here when it’s working again.

Thank you for the interest in my application and I will update this thread when progress is made.

Thanks for your quick response, appreciate the App and your efforts.

I’ve corrected the issue causing “Weather Station Data 5” to stop working !!

The new code-set just completed the ROKU publishing process and will release on 6/7/23 at 10am PST.

If you have deleted the application you can reinstall it on 6/7 after 10am PST
If you already have the app, highlight the app and select * → “Check for updates”.

Again, thank you for the interest in my application :bangbang:
