TCA Player is an upcoming Robloxian premium television service owned by TheCanadianAskew43. The service began on July 6, 2017, initially carrying 5 channels: TCA One, AAK Network, rTV, Blox News Channel, and Rnetwork.

*Channel part of the Player Channels
- TCA2: A TCA2 channel is purportedly in development. TCA however, is thinking he should, and will announce his decision on 1 August 2017.
- TCA Box Sets: A channel named TCA Box Sets, which is to be launched on 1 August 2017, will be a channel that broadcasts repeats comedy series from TCA2 and action and drama series outside TCA1's generalist lean. The channel is planned to launch on channel 15 (normal) and channel 42 (HD). As of August 20, 2017, the channel is already carried on roTV.
- JWR Network: TCA Worldwide had asked the owner of JWR Network if the channel could be carried on TCA Player. Pressure from Buddbudd Corporation and AAK Media and Broadcasting Co. threatening to pull out of the provider if JWR Network is aired(due to recent scandals) forced TCA to retract the proposal. Talks are now in place on whether or not JWR Network should be carried on TCA Player as well as JWR Kids.
- BBS Channel: The channel was pulled on 14th November 2017, due to an announcement from Buddbudd Studios.
