Roku has long been the leader in free video channels; however, with so many channels to choose from, finding the best can be difficult.
So here are the top 10 free Roku video channels as of August 6th, 2017, according to the Roku Channel Store. (Note: We only included video channels on this list. Pandora would once again be number 2, but it only offers audio and was the only audio channel that would have been on this list.)

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.
