Roku March 20 announced that The Roku Channel app is expected to be available this summer on select Samsung smart TVs.
Launched late last year, The Roku Channel offers users free access to hundreds of ad-supported catalog movies and TV shows from content partners.
There are no subscriptions, fees or logins required to access The Roku Channel. It is ad-supported and features approximately half the advertising per programming hour as compared to traditional linear TV.
“The Roku Channel has been a tremendous success,” Scott Rosenberg, GM of platform business at Roku, said in a statement. “By broadening our distribution of this app to other viewing platforms … we are able to engage millions more consumers.”
