Amazon rolls out free Roku-like TV channels for Fire devices
Roku offers easy access to live TV with a new hub
has a new section that pulls together live TV programming from its own channel guide as well as third-party platforms. The Live TV Zone provides swift access to channels you recently watched as well as local and national news, sports, movies and more.
You can access the Live TV Zone via the Live TV option on the left-hand navigation menu. Alternatively, you can just search for “Live TV Zone.”
A survey commissioned by Roku last year found that 61 percent of US adults who don’t subscribe to traditional pay TV still watch live news several times a week. So, while cordcutters might not be willing to pay for cable anymore, there’s still an appetite for linear TV that Roku’s hoping to meet with the new Live TV Zone.
