Roku Nov. 10 announced it has expanded access to third-party live sports channels on the Roku platform, including a centralized location for browsing sports content and seeing where it’s available to watch.
The new sports page is a visual, immersive destination on the Roku device that’s accessible from the home screen menu, affording easier access to favorite games, and events. Users can also search for sports (text or voice) to find specific games, leagues and teams.
Currently, Roku’s sports experience includes pro and college football, pro and college basketball, hockey, baseball, and soccer from DirecTV, Fox Sports, FuboTV, Paramount+, Peacock, Prime Video, Sling TV, The Roku Channel, TNT, TBS, and truTV, as well as games coming over the air through an antenna connected to Roku TV models, with more sports and viewing options expected in the coming months.
“We’re also making more free sports content available, including the Emmy-nominated sports and entertainment talk show “The Rich Eisen Show,” as well as the all-new Roku Original series “Emeril Tailgates,” where food and lifestyle icon Emeril Lagasse discovers and creates new recipes for your next big game,” Alex Hill, director of product management, Roku, wrote in a post.
