"The Outer Limits" no longer available on Roku channel

We started to watch the original "The Outer Limits" TV series from 1960s  and the re-make from 1990s on the Roku Channel.  But as of 01 April they are no longer available to watch. Did Roku remove these two classic sci-fi shows?   WHY?   Not Happy!

Re: "The Outer Limits" no longer available on Roku channel

You know how Netflix will add new content each month, and make way by removing some content?

You know how Amazon Prime Video will add new content to the Prime catalog each month and make room by removing some content?

Well, guess what. Roku Channel does the same thing.

Sometimes, it's because the rights to it expired. Sometimes it's simply to maintain a certain size catalog. There could be a lot of reasons, but content rotating on and off is common for all services.

Thanks for the quick reply. However, the complete series of both shows is not available on any other streaming service.  The Comet Channel only carries individual episodes.

It appears to currently only be available for rent/purchase from streaming services.
