free channels

Can anyone tell me where I can find free channels on Roku?  I'm trying to scale back on my cable package through Spectrum.  If I know that most of the channels that are through Spectrum are located on Roku, then I'll just scale back to a basic plan with my cable company!  Thanks for any help you can provide!

Re: free channels

Some of the Basic Cable/Satellite Channels have free episodes of a lot of shows. U can download a lot of regular cable apps to roku and login thru your service provider..But Anyways Pluto Tv, roku channel,CW, Cw seed, tubi, Watch Free Flix, freeform, FilmRise, (and FilmRise has many different channels dedicated to each topic like documentary, horror, action, western, syfy, comedy mysteries true crime all free), Crackle, a version of peacock is also free. Hope that helps.

Re: free channels

@KelKel78 covered most of mine...

Roku Channel, Filmrise, Pluto, Xumo, Crackle, YuYu, Fawesome, Flix, TCL Channel, and Peacock (although I don't use Peacock, many will need it)

Many of the recommended free Channels are available from within the Roku Menu by navigating to Streaming Channels... Top Free Movies and TV

I have also found a lot of good info from Youtube and searching "Top Free Roku Channels"
