The Roku Channel Will Add Three Roku Originals in October





Roku is adding to its collection of Roku Originals next month, with three horror titles debuting on The Roku Channel. When the Street Lights Go On, 50 States of Fright and The Expecting will be available on the free streaming service just in time for Halloween.

Here’s a bit more about each of the titles.

  • When the Street Lights Go On, tells the story of a double homicide in a small midwestern suburb that rattles the lives of a group of teenagers and sends investigators searching for answers in the fall of 1995. The show will premiere on Friday, October 8th.
  • 50 States of Fright, executive produced by Sam Raimi, is a horror anthology with terrifying tales from every state. The show will premiere on Friday, October 15th.
  • The Expecting, starring Anna Sophia Robb, Rory Culkin, and Mira Sorvino, is an edge-of-your-seat sci-fi thriller about a mysterious pregnancy and the potential dark secrets surrounding it. The show will premiere on Friday, October 29th.

These three shows are a fantastic representation of what Roku has to offer and we could not be prouder of the filmmakers, talent and crew that have made them. It’s the perfect time of year to bring a black list script that deserved to get made, a horror anthology series from one of the most prolific directors of all time, and tour de force performances in a ‘Rosemary’s Baby’-style throwback horror film to our viewers. If you’re looking for something to thrill you and just chill you to your core, look no further.”

In addition to Roku devices, The Roku Channel is available on the web, iOS and Android devices, Amazon Fire TV and select Samsung TVs and can be accessed internationally in the U.S., Canada and the U.K.
