Big Movers This Month

After being in 4th back in May The CW channel once again failed to be in the top 10. The other big drop that shocked us was PBS who also dropped out of the top 10.  In July Pluto TV continued to see strong growth jumping up to #8 in the top 10 FREE Roku Channels.

The biggest drops were the ABC Channel, PBS and JW Broadcasting channel as they fell out of the top 10 this month.
