It is the first time that Roku has made its service available to non-Roku users. It remains a free, ad-supported service, but can be accessed from pretty much any device that can access the web and is capable of streaming media. At launch, the channel included catalog titles from studios like Lionsgate, Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM), Sony Pictures Entertainment and Warner Bros. You can visit The Roku Channel by visiting www.therokuchannel.com. Apart from movies, the content from the channel partners of Roku including FilmRise, Nosey, Vidmark, Popcornflix, YuYu, OVGuide and American Classics is also featured.

Roku first launched the Roku Channel as an ad-supported VOD service on its own streaming devices and Roku TVs in September of a year ago. When selected, these tiles will take you to the associated streaming service where you can enjoy the content free of charge.

The Roku Channel has broken free of its Roku hardware shackles and is now available to access on the web. The company's plans involve monetizing the content by placing ads in a manner that it doesn't bother viewers.

Aside from the update to The Roku Channel, Roku has also announced a new feature on its platform called Featured Free that directs you towards free content on various streaming services like Crackle, ABC, The CW, Pluto TV and, obviously, The Roku Channel itself. "With Featured Free, we're making it easy for our customers to see the great, free content already available on the".

The idea here is that free shows and movies will appear on the Roku Home Screen. Users who aren't plugged into the Roku ecosystem yet do need to sign up for a free account, which then guarantees that content is synchronized across multiple devices.
