'The Roku Channel' is coming to Samsung Smart TVs

27 Mar 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Roku has announced that it will bring its ad-supported ‘The Roku Channel’ app that brings you Hollywood movies and TV for free to Samsung Smart TVs “this summer”.

The Roku Channel

The Roku Channel was launched in September 2017 on Roku’s own devices. The company explains that it has partnered with Sony Pictures, MGM, Lionsgate, Warner Bros, and others to give “customers free access to a collection of top films and more”. It is an ad-supported service.

For the first time, Roku is bringing the app to external devices, more specifically Samsung’s Smart TVs. We assume that Roku refers to Samsung TVs based on the Tizen operating system but the company has not confirmed the details.

- “Samsung customers should have an entertaining summer ahead of them! The Roku Channel, our popular ad-supported app that brings you Hollywood hit movies and TV for free, is expected to be available on select Samsung smart TVs this summer,“ Roku announced.

The company added that the service has “approximately half the advertising per programming hour as compared to traditional linear TV”. Furthermore, Roku’s privacy policy outlines that the company may collect data on your viewing information as well as other information, including metadata.

Roku is not the first company to launch such a service. Vudu has launched a similar initiative in the form of ‘Vudu Movies on Us’

The Roku Channel is expected to be available on “select Samsung Smart TVs this summer”.
