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 May 12th, 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
Very little change this month in the top 10. TubiTV jumped up a few spots and Crackle stayed at number 10. It seems that Roku users this month want to enjoy some movies and TV shows for FREE with TubiTV and Crackle staying in the top 10 after not being listed for many months.
Most of the action was just outside the top 10. PlutoTV and NewsON making strong moves as they approach the top 10.
