Re: Complete Series

Roku Channel will offer shows and movies that it can. However, rights to various content doesn't always allow them to carry an entire series.

Amazon, for instance, offers some episodes/seasons of a show as part of Prime, but other seasons you'd need to buy. Other services are the same way. And, usually for the same reasons. The rights owners, as is their right, want more money for certain content, or for certain volumes of content.
