Big Movers This Month

Once again this month very little has changed in the last month with the top 10 free Roku Channels. One interesting news is that on the Fire TV news has dropped almost completely out of the top 10 free apps on Roku it is still holding on. With that said compared to a year ago fewer news based Roku Channels are in the top 10 as American’s seem to be moving away from news and back to entertainment.
