The Roku Channel

The Roku Channel

Just wanted to let everyone know that Roku has introduced a new channel featuring ad supported movies and programs.  Kind of a soft launch.  You need to add the channel from the channel store.  Movie selection is great.  Quality is very good.  Ads are unobtrusive — though plentiful.  Oh, and it’s free.

If you have a Roku, it is certainly worth a look.

The Roku Channel joins Crackle, SnagFilmsTubi TV, and Vudu as very good FREE options for streamers.  If you can recommend other FREE streaming movie channels, please post in the comments.

  1. I just recently noticed the Roku channel. Their logo is “Free TV for You”. Doesn’t that sound familiar?

    Were you the one that told me bout the Pluto channel? I like that even better because it has a traditional channel guide look and lots of free news feeds. That’s good for cord cutters that miss CNN or FOX News.

  2. I may have. I like the Pluto channel. When I first found it, there were feeds from local OTA channels and I was very exciter, but now those are gone and it’s just another collection of stuff.

  3. Hi Len: You can add Viewster, Popcorn Flix, Coolflix, Vudu (movies on us selection), Amazon Prime free content and Hoopla and/or Kanopy (Free but require public library access if your town supports it). I can’t get Hoopla but I do get Kanopy. This one specializes in documentary type material as opposed to Hoopla where I read its content includes TV shows and other traditional media. These you can add to your list of free ad supported channels. Snag Films and Filmrise channels are also honorable mentions.

      • Not a bad idea Len. Maybe some hidden “gems” can be found and added to the list. I pretty much listed all the major free ad supported channels. Mind you, I did not list the other “Ad Rise” channels that overlap the content with its TubiTV main channel.

      • I almost forgot these 2 channels: CW and CW Seed. Although network TV content, CW does not restrict access by requiring PayTV credential access. Making all its content available free to everyone but ad supported.
