While most streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu have no interest in helping classic cable TV companies, Roku is willing to give them a second chance. Streaming services have become so popular nowadays that nearly all of the US has given up on their cable TV subscription. The reason behind this is simple, streaming online videos is cheaper and way more convenient than having to sit through hours of ads in front of the TV before people get to see their favorite movie or show.
Roku Announces New Premium Subscription
Nonetheless, Roku has announced today that it will be launching a new Premium Subscription service that is going to bundle all the biggest cable companies into a single subscription. The bundle includes 25 of the world’s most popular companies including Start and Showtime among others. People who chose to purchase a paid subscription on Roku will get access to more than 10,000 free movies and TV shows.
A Single Bill
While there might be lots of streaming subscription services that people can choose from, Roku is saying that the one that its offering is the best because it bundles everything under a single bill.
This makes it easier for people to see exactly what they are paying for every month and to eventually cancel it if they don’t want to be a paying subscriber anymore. We have to admit that this is much better than being a subscriber to 25 channels and having to search for them individually.
The new Premium Subscription will contain the following channels: SHOWTIME, EPIX, Baeble Music, CuriosityStream, STARZ, The Great Courses Signature Collection, Fandor Spotlight, Shout!, MHz Choice, NOGGIN, Magnolia Selects, DOX, Hi-YAH!, Hopster, Factory TV, LOLFlix, FitFusion, and many more.
The last thing that we want to mention before we sign off is that the new Premium Subscription for Roku is not going to be available to everyone at the start. The service is still being rolled out OTA (over the air).
