Help & troubleshooting for channels on your Roku device, including adding/removing channels, logging in to, authenticating, or activating a channel, channel-specific playback issues, assistance contacting channel publishers to report issues, and adjusting channel-specific settings.
I am still learning about using the Roku. My question is, I have been watching a show on the Roku Channel and hadn't had any issues. Went to watch it again and now it says "Start your 7-day free trial". So, it went from a free show to now I would need to pay for it? (it was Leverage). I'm on season 5 and up to this point there hadn't been any mention of it eventually changing to a paid subscription. I assumed anything on the actual Roku Channel would be free.
The Roku Channel is a mixture of free content and content that requires a premium subscription. There are several providers mixed in (Starz, Epix, etc.). If I search for Leverage I see that it shows up under Sundance Now (requiring a premium subscription). It's possible that it was offered as part of the free content and it just got removed. Free stuff comes and goes.
