, ,

Roku announced today a new weekly entertainment show called “Roku Recommends.” The 15 minute show will share some of the best content and hidden gems on Roku each week.

“Roku Recommends” launches today with Emmy-award winner, Maria Menounos, and award-winning, multi-hyphenate, Andrew “Hawk” Hawkins hosting an episode with the top five titles to stream on Roku for the week.

“I looooove TV and I am always on the hunt for the next amazing show, movie or doc to stream,” says Maria Menounos, co-host of Roku Recommends. “As the No. 1 TV Streaming Platform in America, Roku provides access to so much great content and I am thrilled to co-host a weekly program designed to help viewers find their next favorite program or rediscover a treasured classic.”

“According to Nielsen data, the average streamer spends more than seven minutes searching for what to watch next,” said Chris Bruss, Head of Roku Brand Studio. “We are uniquely positioned to use our trending data both to help consumers find incredible movies and shows and to help advertisers go beyond the traditional 30-second ad to entertain streamers who otherwise spend time in ad-free, subscription-only environments.”

“Roku Recommends” will stream for free on The Roku Channel with new episodes every Thursday.
