Which Roku channels are free?
Posted on September 29, 2014 Jody
Roku’s extensive Channel Store includes 1,800+ channels, but what exactly can you stream for free? Well, a lot! Today hundreds of Roku channels are free including YouTube, Pandora, PBS, PBS Kids, Hasbro, Crackle, VEVO, CrunchyRoll, Baeble, Popcornflix, Smithsonian and much more. As you may expect, on some channels you might need to sit through an ad here or there.
Many Roku customers are also surprised by our library of free special interest channels like food, fitness, fashion, outdoor…the list goes on. I’m a big fan of Allrecipes for easy dinner ideas and NetFit for free workouts. I catch up on the latest from WIRED, GQ and ABC News through The Scene and stream live concerts, Comedy Central clips and Buzzfeed shorts on Yahoo Screen. These channels are very popular with Roku users as well.
I am glad you added Twitch. Good stuff for gamers. I watch it several times a week. Games look much better on a 55″ TV than on a tablet or phone. – Lowell W.
The best free channel is YOUTUBE,hands down! – Mitchell M.
ABC News & CBS News. – Ken M.
iHeartRadio – Torrey E.
Did you know there is a Popeye channel? How cool! – Lyn G.
Yahoo Screen is off to a great start with Other Space and Community. – Kyle M.
Indie Wrestling Channel is the best channel ever! – Mandel C.
PBS, of course. – Kyle M.
Youtube and Dailymotion are my most common of the freebies. Pandora for music. But I have about 75 stations loaded so if I feel like watching a particular genre, it’s cool to just click around and pick something. The History & Smithsonian channels have some interesting documentaries. – Ellie P.
Crackle. – Andrew L.
Hooked on TWiT. Best geek channel ever. – Harold M.
History Channel (for the adults in the house) and Hasbro TV (for the kids) – Kellie W.
Pandora, WU, Crackle, I am always finding something new. Snag films is pretty good. I like the classic movies. – Laura C.
