Roku’s line of digital media players and audio solutions has taken a backseat to the Roku mobile app. The Roku Channel is a free,ad-supported streaming channel. It allows you to stream licensed content from major movie production companies like Paramount, Sony Pictures Entertainment, and Warner Brothers. You will also find other content publishers on the Roku Channel such as FilmRise and OVGuide. In addition to being a streaming service, the application can be used as a second remote for Roku player and Roku TV.
