2024 is just around the corner and Roku is updating its Home screen with a New Year Central experience to ring in the new year. Roku has been offering interactive experiences like this over the past few years, so those that have been using a Roku player for more than a year might already be familiar with what to expect.

For those new to Roku, this year’s New Year Central experience is due to go live on December 30 and will remain available up until January 1. During this time, users have access to some additional limited-time features, including trivia, karaoke, sweepstakes, and more.

For example, this year’s New Year Central includes a Start the Party section where users can take a look back at the most searched for and viewed entertainment on Roku OS over the past 12 months. Alternatively, users can head over to the Trivia tab to test their knowledge on a variety of entertainment questions.

For those that really want to get the party started, there’s also a Music & Karaoke zone where, as the name suggests, users will find a selection of free tracks to sing along with or dance along to. When it comes to New Year’s Eve proper, Roku users can also drop by the New Year Central experience to find out where they can watch live celebrations for free.

For those that happen to get a new Roku device for Christmas, it might also be worth noting that the company is offering six months of free DashPass to anyone who registers a new Roku device.

Then again, if one of your 2024 new year’s resolutions is to cut back on food deliveries, this might be one of the Roku benefits to pass on.
