If you are referring to Cold Case Files, and you're watching it on The Roku Channel, content owners only license the streaming of their content for a fixed length of time. The contract between the owners and Roku stipulate what seasons and what episodes can be streamed, and now long they can be streamed. It would be nice if Roku provided advance notice that shows are leaving soon, similar to what Netflix does. But if they do offer that I've never seen it.

Basically, Roku is bound by the contract, and if they've reached the end they have to remove it. If Cold case Files is what you're looking for, Pluto TV also offers it/. They have a live channel that plays one episode after another, and under On Demand I see it as well, with seasons 1-5, 9 and 28, and each season doesn't have every episode. So not everything, but quite a bit.

If that's the case, then my original comment about an expiring contract is the most likely reason.

Re: Cold Case Leaving Roku Channel Soon??

Jump to solution

The show is owned by Viacom, so I'm guessing and hoping it's gonna be apart of CBS all access relaunch in 2021.

While searching for an answer this thread came up. From what I will guess, this is a CBS show so it will probably be on CBS All-Access. I loved the show back then and just got my husband hooked to find out POOF! Going away... Fingers crossed 🤞 it will go back to its origin channel, at least it's accessible there.

Hi good people, Today is 10/15 and I just noticed the tv show Cold Case is on Roku. I use to watch it when it was on air and it was my fav.  Now I have to binge watch and I am on S1🤯.  Did anyone find out when it is leaving?
