Basically the way Roku works is by streaming channels (e.g. NetFlix, HBO GO, etc.), so if the program you wish to view is played in one of the available channels - you can view it.
I do not recall seeing an option to stream a URL's content.

There are some available. But you don't necessarily get to pick one that they haven't decided to make available. Overall this is a pretty neat service/device

I don't actually know the answer tk as there is so much you can find on this device that is way beyond me. I do know however that on the basic channel line up there are some international channels listed. I believe also if you know what you're doing you can find many, many channels that are available.
