Tell me your version of a Ultimate Free Channel Setup

I was wondering what you think the best channels are to cover it all. I'll give you my small one but I am looking for ideas. Please share your setup/thoughts.


Live TV/Feels like Live TV? PlutoTV, XUMO

Sportscenter? CBS Sports

Interesting? VICE, PBS

Anything close to Netflix quality? Tubi

US News? CBS News, Newsy

International News? Al Jazeera English

Scifi? DUST


Please add and share your thoughts.

Re: Tell me your version of a Ultimate Free Channel Setup

For Interesting, you'd have to include YouTube. While it certainly has its share of garbage, it also has an enormous amount of stuff that can just be fun and/or interesting to watch. And production values on even some home grown channels can be quite good. 

Roku Stick (3600), Ultra (4640), Ultra (4670), Ultra (4800), Premiere (3920), Insignia 720p Roku TV, Sharp 4K Roku TV, Nvidia Shield, Windows 10 Pro x64 running Serviio and Plex on a wired Gigabit network.
