Roku announced that it’s launching The Roku Channel in the UK today, adding that in addition to Roku users, NOW TV and Sky Q users also have access to the channel’s lineup of free content.

According to the company, The Roku Channel offers some 10,000-plus hours of movies, TV episodes, and documentaries. In a blog post, Roku called out movies like Les Miserable, The Wicker Man, and The Invisible Woman. Meanwhile, shows like Skins and Britain’s Best Bakery are also on offer. There’s also a Kids & Family section for more family-friendly fair, including shows like Baby Einstein Classics and Teletubbies.

The Roku Channel is available starting today in the UK and the company says you can access the channel via a Roku device, NOW TV device, or Sky Q box. In addition, those with a Roku TV, like the Hisense models that were launched in the UK late last year, can also access the free content.
