Big Movers This Month
Very little has changed in the last month with the top 10 free Roku Channels. It will be interesting to see what happens with NBC News as just this week they launched a free live stream of news from 3 PM to 11 PM Eastern. We will need to wait and see if that helps push NBC News high up on Roku’s top 10 chart.
One channel that has vanished from this list is Pandora. For years it was in the top 10 but now once again it is not in the top 25 free Roku Channels. Amazon Music though is now in the top 20 free Roku Channels as of the time of this posting a huge jump for Amazon Music.
