(Free) Roku channel wanting to charge us on Some content?

Wanted to go back and watch more episodes of "Good Times" on the Roku Channel, which they boast is FREE, and when I went to watch episodes of their later seasons, said I had to sign up for an undisclosed paid channel; starting with their "Free trial". 

Anyone else get this on other content on this channel? Why is it happening? #Rokuchannel
