Big Movers This Month

Maybe the most interesting change this month was news services like CBS News, Fox News, and NBC News are all slowly regaining their place in the top 10. After the last presidential election, we saw news channels on Roku slowly drop out of the top 10. Now we are seeing them once again growing with NewsON, ABC News, and more all sitting just outside the top 10. If this trend continues we will likely see multiple news sites jump to the top 10 as we saw during the last presidential election.
