Big Movers This Month

After months of being in the top 10,  JW Broadcasting finally fell out of the top 10. News apps once again are very strong this month but Roku owners seem to be moving away from news and focusing on movies and TV shows. This shift saw channels like Pluto TV and Tubi move into the top 3.

One channel that has vanished from this list is Pandora. For years it was in the top 10 but now is not in the top 25 free Roku Channels.

Update: Roku reached out to point out that their website had an error on it. When you view the Top 25 free Roku Channels on Roku players The Roku Channel was in second place. We updated this list to correctly list The Roku Channel as the second most popular free Roku Channel.
