Beachbody On Demand via Roku

The short and simple answer is, YES! Beachbody On Demand does work on the Roku, which is great news for those of us who own one. That means that you can put your Beachbody workouts up on the big screen, and it’s just like buying the DVD version of the exercise program, minus all of the clutter and ridiculous-looking DVD storage towers you would have to buy otherwise.
