Some of ours are: 

Pluto TV
The Roku Channel
Netflix 
CBS News
Roku is my favorite streamer, mkvXstream.com has my favorite Roku channels

Re: Favorite Roku Channels?

Going to move this to General ... it's a fun thread, and on topic!

My picks:


  • The Roku Channel

  • Plex

  • Netflix

  • Vudu

  • Amazon Prime

I also have a passion for CuriosityStream, Smithsonian, and Smithsonian Earth, but due to my position, I have a TON of channels I enjoy from time to time.

Re: Favorite Roku Channels?

BBC, All4, Demand 5, Netflix, UKTVPlay.

I would like to use ITV Hub but due to the long term (and seemingly never to be resolved) bug that only impacts Roku devices (works fine on every other computing device I own) which means audio is way out of sync (waaaayyy out, several scenes out sometimes) unless you hit rewind then play which immediately snaps things in to sync, until the adverts hit (which are ALWAYS in sync) as once the ads are over, the bug returns EVERY time needing yet another tweak to get it working. Puts me off bothering with it, on the Roku anyway.

Please Roku, give ITV a kick. They are very difficult for customers to pursuade in to action and this issue is only hitting Roku customers as far as I can see. Since ITV is basically THE major broadcaster competing with Auntie Beeb and this is a big downer on Roku devices when compared to the competition, I'm hoping Roku will want to help us encourage ITV in to action.
