The Roku Channel, an AVOD app, is expected to be available this summer on select Samsung smart TVs.
Launched late last year, The Roku Channel is already a top #20 channel on the Roku platform offering consumers hundreds of Hollywood hit movies and TV shows.
“The Roku Channel has been a tremendous success giving our customers the free content they desire,” said Scott Rosenberg, GM of Platform Business at Roku.
“By broadening our distribution of this app to other viewing platforms such as Samsung, the #1 TV maker in the US, we are able to engage millions more consumers with free ad-supported entertainment.”
The Roku Channel features films from leading studios and content partners and is available at no cost as it is ad-supported.
