Roku Channel review
The Roku Channel is a free live TV streaming service that provides more than 190 live linear streaming channels and more than 40,000 free movies and TV shows. The library contains entertainment from several different decades, including some major hits.
The service also made a splash by the acquisition of the Quibi library, now presented as Roku Originals. More original content is set to follow.
Users can add premium subscriptions to services like Showtime, STARZ, and AMC+ that can be accessed within the Roku Channel ecosystem.
We tested Roku Channel and other subscription streaming services for more than 100 hours. Roku Channel is compatible with iPhone/iPad, Android Phone/Tablet, Roku, Web Browsers, Samsung Smart TV, and Amazon Fire TV.
The Roku Channel has 30 original titles, includes award-winning and scripted series, such as “Die Hart,” “#FreeRayshawn” and “Reno 911!,” documentaries, such as “Blackballed” and “Big Rad Wolf,” and alternative and reality programming, including “Punk’d” and “Chrissy’s Court.” These shows were previously available on the short-lived Quibi platform.
Roku is developing even more originals to come.
The Roku Channel offers several popular shows, including “The Bachelorette,” “24,” and “Alias.”
You’ll also find some hits from the past few decades, including “Quantum Leap,” “Highway to Heaven,” “The A-Team,” “Coach,” “Hart to Hart,” “Who’s the Boss?” “Bewtiched,” “Benson,” and “What’s Happening!!”
The movie library offers some extremely high-quality films for free. At the time of this writing, they include “The Fugitive,” “In the Line of Fire,” “Signs,” “Memento,” and “Galaxy Quest.” The library will rotate, but there is an encouraging number of Hollywood hits in the mix.
The Roku Channel’s Kids & Family section helpfully allows you to browse by specific characters or by the age of your child.
