You can start accessing the Movies, TV shows, and short videos, once you create a Roku account on RokuChannel.com. Roku channel also provides a new feature on its platform where you are directed to various free content streaming services like Crackle, ABC, The CW, Pluto TV, and of course Roku channel itself. Free shows, movies will appear on the home screen, where if you select these tiles, it will take you to the associated streaming service where you can enjoy your service.

These free shows, movies will consist of ads, sometimes as many as you’d find while you are watching a cable TV. Roku service is similar to Apple’s TV app in that it puts a spotlight on the content itself rather than the network it is coming from. Studio Gunpowder & Sky today announced the launch of a new Sci-fi channel called ‘DUST’, which will be available on Roku channel from August 18th onwards.

The company is now looking to chart towards a $730 million revenue this year. In the 2nd quarter, the platform’s revenue went up 96% to $90.3 million, where setup boxes accounted for about $66.5 million, according to the latest reports.
