Roku Channel brings new movies and shows to Sky Q, NOW and Roku
Few new shows and movies to watch? Don’t worry, Roku is behind you. The streaming platform, which is available in standalone set-top boxes built into select Smart TVs, as well as Sky Q and NOW, has added 17 new content sources to its free-to-watch channel, called The Roku Channel.
With the latest additions, Roku Channel now has 200 sources contributing content to its channel. Some of the most notable new additions include video game firm IGN, CBC News and AccuWeather, as well as a linear channel dedicated exclusively to the Tribeca Film Festival.
The latter will feature 114 films from the renowned film festival’s back catalog, with new titles every 30 days.
Not only that, there will also be original content from Tribeca Studios. For those who don’t feel like attending an in-person screening at their local multiplex, this is a great way to discover new movies.
Roku Channel does not charge a subscription fee, unlike other popular streaming options, including Netflix, Disney+, and Prime Video. Instead, the service relies on ads to keep the lights on. It is available to anyone with a Roku-branded Smart TV, Roku streaming set-top box, NOW, or Sky Q box.
Last year, the US company also added standalone iPhone and Android apps for those who don’t want to watch the big screen.
