The Roku Channel has become the home for free entertainment and now it’s the exclusive home of Roku Originals.
Roku recently bolstered its offerings on The Roku Channel by adding 25 additional new live/linear channels. The new channels are currently available to start watching, and you can stream them directly from the Live TV Channel Guide.
The Roku Channel currently has more than 190 free linear channels, along with some live channels. It’s home to a huge variety of both free and premium TV shows and movies. It also recently became the new home of This Old House, and premiered its first original series, Cypher, in March 2020.
The Roku Channel’s new content spans a wide variety of genres, from cooking and sports to music and reality programming. The new channels include:
- Adventure TV

Also, the first 30 Roku Originals will also be released on May 20, dubbed “Streaming Day.” The originals were originally short-form TV series and movies Roku purchased from Quibi. The Originals include Die Hart, The Fugitive, #FreeRayshawn, and Dishmantled, Shape Of Pasta, Prodigy and many more as per company blog.
Recently Roku removed YouTube TV from its app store. Google then created a workaround by moving that content to the standard YouTube app, which allowed Roku users to still enjoy the shows.
