Roku makes it incredibly easier to organize paid channel subscriptions so that you can access them from one place. But it does a lot more than that.
Roku features an army of free apps that allow users to view content for free. There is a truckload of Roku free channels, some more popular than others.
In this post, we will share a list of top free Roku channels. And when we say free we mean exactly that. You can download and watch these channels without having to pay a dime.
Well then, let’s check out the list—and if we have missed your personal favorite, don’t forget to tell us about it in the comments!

A personalized radio service, Pandora allows you to create custom web radio stations based on your favorite artists, songs, or genres. While there are scores of music streaming services available, none has a free version that’s as good as Pandora’s.
Of course, there will be commercials in free version, but that’s no big deal (it’s radio, how can it be otherwise?).
The crackle Roku app has a good collection, but streaming at times can be less than perfect.
The NewsOn Roku app allows you to stream news channels from all over the country.
Google trackers are lurking on 75% of websites. Cover your tracks to protect yourself.

With iHeart Radio, you can enjoy your favorite traditional radio stations live for free. If you want, you can create customized stations too, much like Pandora.
It allows you to watch full-length streaming movies as well as TV series for free. The collection is not exhaustive, but it’s not bad, either. There are more than 700 movies, some famous and some not so well known.
If you are an e-sports fanatic, you got to have this channel. You can stream competitive as well as casual games for free. There’s a paid version, but you don’t really need it if you are fine with ads.
You can watch popular movies as well as famous TV series for free. The videos will have commercials but not as many as in cable. Its content library is not half as large as Netflix’s, but nevertheless it does have some good stuff.

While Roku has plenty of sports channels, most of them require subscription. Sports Illustrated, however, is a good free option for all those who want to remain up-to-date with the latest in the world of sports.
This streaming service allows you to watch free TV but it is different from Tubi TV or Crackle. It allows you to watch live TV. Its staff assembles the channels which use free stream and online videos, so there will be none of those popular channels like CBS or FOX. Nevertheless, it has some impressive channels.
Of course, you can’t afford to give this original free streaming service a pass, can you? In addition to the usual-generated content, YouTube offers innumerable feature films, documentaries, and TV show episodes.
Want to get local weather and weather predictions for free? Then this is just the channel you need.
