The Roku Channel is Roku's free streaming service containing ad-supported live and on-demand content, as well as premium (subscription) content. It has a lot of stuff.
Keep in mind, we're talking about The Roku Channel, not the Roku platform itself. Having the Roku Channel is NOT the same as having a Roku device. If you don't understand the difference between Roku and The Roku Channel, just understand that there is a difference.
The Roku Channel, Roku's free live streaming service, has recently added some live streaming channels to the Live TV lineup. You can tell what most of them are just by the names of the channels.
- Movie Favorites by Lifetime (386) Exactly what it says. Movies from Lifetime network. Not the same as Lifetime Movie Network, but similar. And free.
- Vevo 2K (1181) The 2K part means music videos from the 2000s, not the streaming resolution.
- Vevo '80s (1187) Music videos from the 1980s.
- Vevo Reggaeton & Trap (1148) Music videos from those similar styles of music.
- Classic Doctor Who (757) Episodes from 1963-1989, featuring the First through Seventh Doctors.
- Antiques Roadshow UK (463) A live stream of content from the British TV series.
- BBC Food (446) Not the old BBC channel that was replaced by BBC Lifestyle, but a streaming only service of BBC content focusing on food. So similar, but not exactly the same.
- iHeart80s (1188) Note that these songs are audio not video.
- The Country Network (1176) Music videos.
- LiveNOW from Fox (120) Raw feeds of live events and breaking news by Fox News.
If you're looking for live streaming content, The Roku Channel continues to offer more and more selections. Not everything is for everybody, but it's likely you'll find something on The Roku Channel for you. If not from these newly added channels, them from the hundreds already on the service. It would be a good addition to your Streaming Life.
