1. Create a new lesson
2. Make a trigger an utterance "Roku Play"
3. Go to your Roku and see its address or better yet, the name your router has granted your Ubi
4. Make the action an HTTP request.
5. Select POST as the type of Request and TEXT.
6. Specify FROM as the same Ubi in you trigger in #2.
7. Make your URL: http://a.b.c.d:8060/keypress/play
8. Make a.b.c.d the address or name of your roku from #3.
9. Save the lesson.
10. Create a second lesson but with a "Roku pause" utterance trigger.
11. Make the URL: http://a.b.c.d:8060/keypress/back
