The Roku Channel is getting a number of new free, ad-supported streaming television (FAST) channels from CBS, Fox, and NBCUniversal. In total, more than 40 linear channels have now been added across a variety of genres, including local news, entertainment, crime, Spanish language, and kids and family.
The Roku Channel is home to a variety of free and paid channels and services, and already offered access to a selection of FAST channels provided by NBCUniversal, including Dateline 24/7, NBC News Now, and Today All Day.
As part of the latest partnership expansion between NBCUniversal and Roku, The Roku Channel users are gaining access to a variety of themed FAST channels. For example, dedicated channels for Bad Girls Club, Little House on the Prairie, Murder, She Wrote, Saved By The Bell, TNBC (Teen NBC), and Universal Crime, have all been added today.
“The Roku Channel is thrilled to announce its expanded relationship with longtime partner NBCUniversal,” shared Jennifer Vaux, VP, Content Acquisition & Programming for The Roku Channel. “As FAST continues to gain incredible popularity in the marketplace, we’re excited to bring such terrific content options – including a strong roster of very well-known, fan-favorite programming – to our viewers.”
In addition to the channels that have been added to The Roku Channel today, the same announcement also confirmed that more channels, including Alfred Hitchcock Presents and Universal Action, will be launching on The Roku Channel later this year.
In a separate announcement today, Roku also confirmed that, along with the new NBCUniversal channels, a number of CBS News and FOX Television stations have also been added to The Roku Channel.
