You can add the CBC TV channel to your home screen from the ‘Movies & TV’ category in the Roku Channel Store or through the Roku website. When I tried this out on my Roku TV, I wasn’t able to find CBC TV on the list, but it turned up when I searched for the channel.
Once you add it, you can select CBC TV from your home screen, pick your region and start watching the channel.
