BBC America Releases a Roku Channel




Do you have DIRECTV NOW or PlayStation Vue? Well, now you can log into BBC AMERICA on your Roku player. In tandem with services like DIRECTV NOW  you can tune in for the world premiere of Top Gear America on July 30th with the new Roku Channel.

BBC AMERICA describes themselves as a hub of innovative, culturally contagious programming including top-rated science-fiction phenomenon Doctor Who, fan-favorite Orphan Black, groundbreaking unscripted series Top Gear, buzzy and wildly bizarre Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency starring Elijah Wood, as well as the upcoming series Killing Eve from Phoebe Waller-Bridge, and Blue Planet II, the next chapter in the epic story of our planet.  The network was recently recognized with ten Emmy award nominations for Planet Earth II.

Viewers can find the BBC AMERICA channel in the Roku channel store today. Available through streaming services like DIRECTV NOW as an authentication option. (As far as I know, DIRECTV NOW & PlayStation Vue are the only streaming service that offers BBC America login support. Am I missing one? Leave us a comment and let us know.)
